Huge Shake-Up in the Trump Transition Team

The big news out of DC is that there is already a huge shake-up in the transition team of President-elect Donald Trump.

The transition effort has been headed by New Jersey governor Chris Christie, but FOX News is reporting that Vice President-elect Mike Pence will take over as chair of the transition team with Christie staying on as vice-chair.

It has been expected that Mike Pence’s role as Vice President would be more than just a figurehead to attend funerals and state events. This move for him to chair the transition team perhaps signals the bigger role within the administration that he will take beyond what the vice-president typically does.  Does this move also signal that Christie may not have a role in the Trump administration counter to what many anticipated?

Only time will tell.

While ex-New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and retired Lt. General Mike Flynn have been part of the transition team, there are also new additions that have been announced. Added to the transition team are RNC chair Reince Priebus, Breitbart chair and top advisor Steve Bannon. Also being added to the transition team are three of Trump’s children, Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Trump, Jr as well as his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
