Donald Trump has made two new cabinet selections


UPDATE 2:03 p.m. EST:

Trump has made another selection. He's asked attorney Donald McGahn to serve as his White House counsel. 

McGahn has longstanding ties to the Trump family and may assist Trump in separating his political moves from his business interests. 

UPDATE Nov. 25: Trump adds Fox News analyst Kathleen Troia to his cabinet. 

Donald Trump has chosen Kathleen "KT" McFarland as his deputy national security adviser.

Trump's National Security Adviser tweeted his congratulations.

President-elect Donald Trump has appointed Betsy DeVos to education secretary post.

Betsy DeVos tweeted this about her appointment, saying she is honored to work with Trump.

Trump's take on DeVos

"Betsy DeVos is a brilliant and passionate education advocate,” Trump said Wednesday in a statement.

“Under her leadership, we will reform the U.S. education system and break the bureaucracy that is holding our children back so that we can deliver world-class education and school choice to all families.”

Her plans is to ensure students have the opportunity to "fulfill their highest potential."

Using Twitter and Facebook, Dr. Ben Carson is hinting that he could be named as President-elect Donald Trump's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

Last week Carson indicated that he was not going to serve in Trump's administration. "My decision not to seek a cabinet position in the Trump administration has nothing to do with the complexity of the job," Carson posted to Facebook at the time. "[I]t is vitally important for the Trump administration to have many outspoken friends and advisers who are outside of the Washington bubble."

Today's Facebook post is a stark change from what Carson was saying previously.

The Trump campaign told reporters earlier to expect an announcement later today. 

Former rival stumped for Trump

If Carson accepts the cabinet level position he will be the first black person appointed to Trump's administration. 

The Department of Housing and Urban Development's mission according to their website, "is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all." 

After dropping out the GOP primary Carson endorsed Trump and frequently stumped and made television appearances supporting Trump.
