President Donald Trump has selected seven people to serve in his Cabinet, the latest step in his transition to the White House.
Here’s a look at the Cabinet that has been named so far.
President Donald Trump was elected in November, and his first Cabinet was sworn in Monday.
Trump has said he will be nominating members of the executive branch and the military for the position of Secretary of Defense, but there are currently no women in the president’s Cabinet.
His administration has not yet named a nominee to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, but that could change if Trump’s nominee is confirmed, as has been the case with a number of others.
Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., who chairs the Senate Agriculture Committee, said Monday that he would be looking for someone to be secretary of Housing, Urban Development and Related Agencies, and he said he would consider anyone who had “a sound understanding of the challenges we face.”
A Trump administration official said Thune would be making a decision on who would lead the department sometime after Thanksgiving.
He is the ranking member on the Senate Finance Committee.
Senators from both parties have been working to confirm several cabinet nominees for weeks, including for the Energy Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Commerce Department, and the Transportation Department.
Some of the most high-profile Cabinet picks have been Democrats, including former Sen. Joe Biden, who was nominated to lead the Treasury Department.
Trump’s first Cabinet nominees to be confirmed include Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, who has been a fierce critic of the Confederate battle flag, and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is a leading advocate for gun control.
The president has also tapped former Ohio Gov.
John Kasich to lead Health and Human Services, while former Texas Gov.
Rick Perry is to be deputy secretary of agriculture.
Trump also announced Monday that Oklahoma Gov.
Mary Fallin will be the deputy secretary for the Environment and Public Works.
