Confirmation process[edit]

Below is a list of confirmations for Cabinet positions, Cabinet-level positions, and other significant positions that were approved through the Senate between January and May 2017, by a recorded roll-call vote, rather than by a voice vote.

Despite being nominated promptly during the transition period, many cabinet members were unable to take office on Inauguration Day because of delays in the formal confirmation process. As of 8 February 2017, President Trump had fewer cabinet nominees confirmed than any other president except George Washington by the same length of time into his presidency.[3][4] Part of the lateness was ascribed to the delays in submitting background-check paperwork.[5] The last confirmed Cabinet member, Robert Lighthizer, took office as U.S. Trade Representative on May 11, 2017, four months after his nomination.[6]


Senate votes[edit]

Notes: Sources: Affiliation:

*Vice President Pence provided the tie-breaking vote.

Candidates for Cabinet positions[edit]

After election day, media outlets reported on persons described by various sources as possible appointments to senior positions in the incoming Trump presidency. The number of people which have received media attention as potential cabinet appointees is higher than in most previous presidential elections, partly because the Trump'16 campaign staff (and associated PACs) was significantly smaller and less expensive,[7] thus there are not as many people already expected to receive specific roles in the upcoming Trump administration. In particular, "Trump ha[d] a smaller policy brain trust [policy group] than a new president normally carries"[8] because as an anti-establishment candidate who began his campaign by largely self-funding his way to the Republican party nomination,[9] unlike most previous presidential winners "Trump does not have the traditional cadre of Washington insiders and donors to build out his Cabinet."[10] An additional factor that tends to make the field of potential nominees especially broad, is that unlike most presidential transition teams who select politicians as their appointees, the Trump transition team "has started with a mandate to hire from the private sector [as opposed to the governmental sector] whenever possible."[10]

Until the Trump Administration announces their official cabinet, and those nominees are confirmed by the Senate (where applicable), this page will continue to be updated with new information and potential positions. The membership of the presidential cabinet also tends to evolve during the course of the presidency; turnover often causes individual names to change, and more rarely, creation of new departments and merging/downsizing of existing departments can alter the size of the cabinet.

Candidates for Cabinet-level officials[edit]

Cabinet-level officials have positions that are considered to be of Cabinet level, but which are not part of the Cabinet. Which exact positions are considered part of the presidential cabinet, can vary with the president. The CIA and FEMA were cabinet-level agencies under Bill Clinton, but not George W. Bush. The head of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (aka the drug czar) was a cabinet-level position under both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, but not under Barack Obama. (Not to be confused with the head of the DEA, who has remained in the org chart underneath the cabinet position held by the Attorney General.) Designation of an agency as being cabinet-level requires[citation needed] that Congress enact legislation, although executive orders unilaterally created by the president can be used to create many other types of position inside the executive branch.[citation needed] Members of the cabinet proper, as well as cabinet-level officials, meet with the president in a room adjacent to the Oval Office.

Vice President[edit]

There were dozens of potential running mates for Trump who received media speculation (including several from New York where Trump himself resides). Trump's eventual pick of Governor Mike Pence of Indiana was officially announced on July 16, 2016 and confirmed by acclamation via parliamentary procedure amongst delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention on July 19, 2016.

Removal of the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers[edit]

On February 8, 2017 President Trump outlined the 24 members of the Cabinet with the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers excluded.[200][201] In addition to the chair, there are two other members of the council (also appointed by the president), as well as a staff of economists, researchers, and statisticians.

  1. ^ The sources usually indicate this is specifically sitting U.S. Rep. Duncan D. Hunter age 39, not to be confused with his father the former U.S. Rep. and former 2008 presidential candidate Duncan Lee Hunter age 68, who previously held the exact same elected office before retiring from the seat (his son thereafter winning and becoming his replacement). Both the father and the son are being considered for potential roles within the Trump administration in defense-related positions,[50] as both are veterans (war on Terror and war in Vietnam respectively), and furthermore both served on the House Armed Services Committee during their respective tenures.
  2. ^ As of December 9, 2016, multiple media reports surfaced that Cathy McMorris Rodgers was anonymously leaked as being Trump's decision for United States Secretary of the Interior; according to she had been picked,[68][69] and according to she had been offered the role,[70] but most other news reports were slightly more cautious. Rodgers was most commonly called the reported pick[71][72] or the expected pick,[73][74][75][76][77] or similar phrases by the media. Some smaller media outfits said only that she was the likely pick.[78][79] CNN was the most cautious, only stating in passing that Rodgers was the leading contender,[80] albeit in an article that was more about discussing the various influences upon the vetting-process rather than being solely concentrating on the latest updates as to the status of the role itself. At least one media entity, The News & Observer (online since 1994), published a report during the afternoon of December 9 questioning the coverage of Rodgers as the expected pick, stating that an anonymous official -- presumably different from the one that had leaked the Rodgers scoop earlier -- with the Trump transition team has specifically refuted that Rodgers was the expected pick, and that quote "No offer has been made... still looking at candidates."[81]
