    All remaining selections for high-level posts in Donald Trump’s incoming presidential administration should be made by December 25, senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said in an interview Monday.

    WASHINGTON, (Sputnik) — The president-elect has already announced his appointments for chief of staff, senior strategist and national security adviser as well as nominations – to be considered by the US Senate – for attorney general and Central Intelligence Agency director.

    Asked on Fox News Channel if appointments and nominations will be completed between this Thursday’s US Thanksgiving holiday and Christmas Day, Conway replied: "That makes sense. He's a guy who – he has been doing this his whole life – making decisions, weighing options, consequences, results, and taking people's counsel and making the decisions."
