It’s official. Donald Trump has selected Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as the chief of staff for his new administration on Nov. 13. Find out more about why the President-Elect chose his loyal campaign adviser here!
Donald Trump, 70, has been going through the motions to prepare for his role as the 45th President of the United States. The businessman-turned-politician now made a very important choice, selecting Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as the White House chief of staff for his new administration, according to a campaign statement on Nov. 13. Steve Bannon, the Trump campaign CEO, was announced as a chief strategist and senior counselor.
The statement reads, “Bannon and Priebus will continue the effective leadership team they formed during the campaign, working as equal partners to transform the federal government, making it much more efficient, effective and productive.” In regards to a public comment from Donald’s camp, Kellyanne Conway also recently noted, “He can’t go wrong with the decision.” The President-Elect already had a sit-down meeting with Barack Obama, 55, at the White House on Nov. 10, and the two have prepared for a peaceful transition of power. Donald formerly said he was going to rid of Obamacare, but it seems he will keep two of the law’s provisions.
Donald reportedly plans to allow children up to age 26 being allowed to stay on their parents’ plan and he wants to prevent insurance companies from denying coverage because of preexisting conditions. The President-Elect will next be featured in his first full-length interview with 60 Minutes on Nov. 13, where he will discuss many of his policies and hopes for the future of our beautiful country. As negotiations for the members of his administration continue, it will be interesting to see who will be selected. As Donald previously said to the Washington Post, “I’m going to surround myself with only with the best and most serious people.”
