Donald Trump 'in No Hurry' to Name Permanent Cabinet Members
President Donald Trump says he isn't in a rush to tap any permanent Cabinet replacements.
"Well I'm in no hurry.
I have acting.
And my actings are doing really great," Trump said.
He told reporters outside the White House Sunday he likes having "acting" officials because they give him "more flexibility." As it stands, there are acting officials serving as chief of staff, interior secretary, defense secretary, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., attorney general and EPA administrator.
Though William Barr has been nominated for the attorney general role.
All of the open Cabinet positions require Senate confirmation.
