Donald Trump isn’t wasting any time in making things happen in DC and this is much to the frustration and fear of the Democrats that he is ousting.
No need to fear though because Donald Trump is about to set up the smoothest transition America has ever seen.
He just announced his transition team and it is going to set him up for success on the first day.
The president-elect told advisers he wanted to tap Mr. Pence’s Washington experience and contacts to help move the process along, according to people familiar with the discussions. An executive committee including members of Congress will advise Mr. Pence as the process moves forward.
Mr. Christie, along with Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York, and Michael T. Flynn, a retired lieutenant general who has been a top campaign supporter, will serve as vice chairmen of the transition, the sources said.
The transition team is adding 12 members, including a Republican donor, Rebekah Mercer; Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman; Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee; Peter Thiel, a co-founder of PayPal; Representative Marsha Blackburn, Republican of Tennessee; and three of Mr. Trump’s adult children and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Rick Dearborn, the chief of staff to Senator Jeff Sessions, Republican of Alabama, will move from the campaign’s Washington office to help run the transition office. He move will push aside Rich Bagger, who is close to Mr. Christie and had been working on the transition.
Mr. Trump’s administration is being assembled behind the scenes. But like much else in the nation’s capital, little stays secret for long.
