Donald Trump Has Chosen Over 60% of Cabinet


Just 39 days left until inauguration day, and President-elect Donald Trump has chosen more than 60% of his cabinet. 

Today he announced his intent to appoint retired General John Kelly for Secretary of Homeland Security, a man he thinks is the right person to spearhead the fight against illegal immigration. 

The transition team says to expect a decision on the highly anticipated secretary of state position in the coming days. The latest name out there is Exxon Chief Rex Tillerson. Critics are concerned with Tillerson's relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but Trump staffers argue that's a good thing because he knows how to deal with countries like Russia and China.
