Trump hosts potential cabinet contenders at NJ golf club


BEDMINSTER, N.J. (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump is welcoming a parade of officials at the white-pillared clubhouse of his New Jersey golf club this weekend as he weighs who will be in line for roles in the new administration.

Trump’s Sunday schedule in Bedminster includes New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Setting a rancorous year aside, the pugnacious billionaire put on a smiling show of goodwill Saturday with former rival Mitt Romney. But Trump did not reveal or indicate whether the 2012 Republican nominee could be in line for a cabinet post.

He also met with retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, considered a contender to lead the Pentagon.

Trump said he may announce some of his picks on Sunday.
