Trump wants as many as five generals in cabinet
Among Wall Street executives, billionaire businessmen and generals, where is the swamp-draining and populism Trump promised?
Trump has already selected three retired top military officers for his administration — Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn for national security adviser, Gen. James Mattis for Defense secretary and Gen. John Kelly for Homeland Security secretary.
He’s also reportedly considering retired Adm. James Stavridis and former Gen. David Petraeus for the coveted secretary of State position.
For director of national intelligence, the president-elect is thinking about choosing Petraeus — if he does not make the cut for State — and Adm. Michael Rogers, the current head of the National Security Agency.
