The transition team completed all transition binders on schedule last Thursday. They covered cabinet secretaries, domestic and foreign policy, White House operations, timelines for the transition and national security.
At this stage, the two dominant Trump transition advisers are New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, both of whom the president-elect mentioned in his early morning victory remarks.
The leading candidate to become White House Chief of Staff, sources said, is RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
Trump called Priebus an “all-star” in his victory remarks and allowed him to make a brief statement at the podium. Sources said Priebus is open to taking the post and many Republicans consider him the best conduit between Trump, a sure-fire outsider, and Republicans on Capitol Hill.
