Donald Trump’s campaign manager told Morning Joe that, regardless of who the new Secretary of State is, Trump will have the final, “total call” on trade negotiations.
Harold Ford, Jr. asked Kellyanne Conway if President-elect Trump’s intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) means he’ll pick someone with business experience to be secretary of state (like Mitt Romney).
Conway answered by first suggesting Romney and his main competition for State — Rudy Giuliani — are both great businessmen, and then by asserting that Trump will have the lead (and “total call”) on trade negotiations.
Conway reminded Morning Joe viewers of the support TPP had in GOP circles, including a joint op-ed from Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).
As time before the commercial break expired, Ford, Jr. asked Conway if Trump will look to appoint Democrats to high-ranking positions in the administration.
Conway said: “I think the answer is yes.”
