NEW YORK — Donald Trump's unconventional campaign transitions to the unconventional transition team.
So, hold onto your seats!
First off, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions has been named Trump's pick for attorney general. He was once Alamaba's AG.
Looks like Sessions' loyalty is paying off. He was the first U.S. senator to endorse Trump.
Senator Ted Cruz stated that Sessions is "great news for all of us who revere the Constitution and the rule of law. "
But critics point out that 30 years ago, a senate judiciary committee rejected Sessions for a federal judge appointment because of allegations of racism. A black assistant U.S. attorney who worked for Sessions testified that Sessions called him "boy."
"I am not a racist," Session fervently told the Senate Judiciary Committee at his 1986 confirmation hearing. "I am not insensitive to Blacks. I have supported civil rights activity in my state."
So, will Sessions face deja-vu in the senate all over again?
"We've got a great number of men and women with great qualifications come forward to serve this new administration," Vice-President-elect Mike Pence reassured reporters at Trump Tower.
Another Trump pick is Congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas for CIA Director.
Pompeo is a former military serviceman and was a top grad at West Point. Trump says the congressman has "spent his life fighting for the security of our citizens."
He had a bitter clash with Hillary Clinton over Benghazi.
Next up, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn as Trump's Assistant for National Security Affairs.
Flynn was a former military adviser to President Obama. He also owns a lobbyist company called Flynn Intel Group, which reportedly received tens of thousands of dollars from a Turkish client.
So, is Flynn really going to 'drain the swamp?'
Some say he will have to cut ties with his own company to keep from blurring the lines.
And speaking of blurred lines, during Trump's first official meeting with a foreign official... daughter Ivanka is pictured sitting in on the high-level discussion with the Japanese prime minister on Thursday.
"I've said throughout the campaign that I am very passionate about certain issues," Ivanka told '60 Minutes' last Sunday. "So, there are a lot of things that I feel very strongly about, but not in a formal, administrative capacity."
Maybe she just wanted to be a fly-on-the-wall for the Japanese prime minister's meeting, then?
Apart from arch rival Mitt Romney meeting with Trump to discuss the secretary of state job this weekend. Makes you wonder what's next?!
