Trump team 'not going to rush' Cabinet picks
WASHINGTON - A spokesman for President-elect Donald Trump says the transition team is "not going to rush" to put forward potential Cabinet selections.
Jason Miller said Wednesday that Trump's team wants to feel confident their choices will be able to be confirmed by the Senate and can implement the president-elect's vision.
Miller told reporters at Trump Tower in New York City that President Barack Obama did not have "his entire Cabinet formed within the first week" after his election in 2008.
He said the transition team has a "very solid plan" and they're taking a "methodical approach" to filling Trump's Cabinet and White House.
