It is being reported that Trump is considering some of his top surrogates to fill crucial roles within his administration, including Secretary of State and Defense. None other than former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is on the short list for Secretary of State which New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is being considered for the role of Attorney General.
Retired Lt. General Micahel Flynn is at the top of the list for Secretary of Defense or National Security Adviser while RNC Chairman Reince Priebus would be White House Chief of Staff. In addition, Trump’s campaign finance chair, Steve Mnuchin, is being tapped for Treasury Secretary and Lew Eisenberg, the RNC’s finance chair, is being considered for Secretary of Commerce. Sources also note that if Priebus were to turn down the role of Chief of Staff, Trump would turn to former campaign manager and current CNN contributor Corey Lewandowski or deputy campaign manager David Bossie to fill that role.
As of right now, campaign CEO and manager Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway are not among those being considered for White House roles, although things could change in the days to come.

F Newt. Dangerous. I take him for being one of the smartest guys 'in the public eye' down there.
Keep Giuliani away from foreign policy. I imagine he gets work done.
If somehow DT wins, he'll have some serious living up to do (all that contract/corruption stuff), or Trump people wont much enjoy me... if I'm even around.
say its time to end re-elections. Change it over to POTUS get one single 5 year term. Then it changes every time, meaning no one is naturally inclined to 'have to' defend their guy because they're stuck with having to re-elect them of get the 'enemy' next time. It only stokes the submission and loyalty dynamics having re-elections. It's bad enough without it just look at all this circus we had.

For all of the supposed anti-NWO and anti-terrorism talk, Trump supporters are ok with him possibly picking Newt to be in his Cabinet? Just for a reference, listen to Newt's logic about how the govt should let an occasional terrorist attack get through in order to keep people motivated to fight terrorism. The juicy part starts around 45secs.
Think about all of the times that a lone wolf terrorist was already known to the FBI and other law enforcement. For all the conspiracies about this or that administration allowing or setting up attacks in order to exploit them for their agendas, here's Newt flat out saying it. And yet people don't have a problem with putting this guy back in power???
