    US President-elect Donald Trump is considering former Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally for the position of next secretary of state, Trump’s senior advisor Kellyanne Conway told Fox News Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Mulally met with the president-elect at Trump Tower in New York City on Thursday.

    "The secretary of state field has obviously broadened and widened," Conway said, listing Mulally among the names being considered for US top diplomat.

    The adviser noted that Trump is expected to make the decision sometime next week.

    "It's going to come down to one man's decision on who he's most comfortable with and who can work with other Cabinet members," Conway concluded.

    Conway said the others under consideration include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney, US Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, retired General David Petraeus, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, former UN Ambassador John Bolton, and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher of California.
