Trump re­sumes au­di­tions for Cabi­net po­si­tion prospects

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION+WORLD -

Don­ald Trump held court in Man­hat­tan on Mon­day, re­ceiv­ing a line of for­mer ri­vals, long­time al­lies and TV ex­ec­u­tives while over­see­ing a pres­i­den­tial tran­si­tion that at times re­sem­bles a re­al­ity show like the one he once hosted.

Trump met with nearly a dozen prospec­tive hires, all of whom were pa­raded in front of the cam­eras set up in the Trump Tower lobby as they en­tered an el­e­va­tor to see the pres­i­dent-elect. Out of pub­lic view him­self, he fell back on his TV star roots by film­ing a video that touted his leg­isla­tive goals.

Trump did not im­me­di­ately an­nounce any ap­point­ments af­ter the meet­ings, which came on the heels of a two-day whirl­wind of in­ter­views at his golf course in Bed­min­ster, New Jersey.

Un­like his pre­de­ces­sors, who of­ten spoke with Cabi­net can­di­dates un­der a cloud of se­crecy, Trump has turned the search into a very pub­lic au­di­tion process.
