U.S. President-elect Donald Trump filed two staff positions on Friday afternoon. Trump named campaign finance lawyer Don McGahn as his White House Counsel, and he chose national security analyst K.T. McFarland his deputy national security adviser.
Neither selection comes as much of a surprise. McGahn was the chief lawyer for Trump’s campaign and has been advising the President-elect during his transition to the White House. McFarland had been rumored to be in line for the position she was given.
McFarland is the third female that’s officially been added to Trump’s administration. He previously pegged South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as U.N. ambassador and billionaire Betsy DeVos to be his education secretary.
Much of the discussion surrounding Trump’s potential cabinet selections has been regarding Secretary of State, for which Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney have been reported as top candidates. General John Kelly, General David Petraeus and Senator Bob Corker are also in the running for the position, according to CNN.
