When a man dies, ‘the woman must be prepared’
The Latest on President Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees (all times local):2 p.m.
President Donald Trump is poised to name three Cabinet members on Tuesday that are widely considered to be among the most controversial nominees he has made to his administration.
Vice President Mike Pence, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly are among those who have been widely viewed as being in line to replace retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson.
Kelly’s nomination, which is likely to be made public on Tuesday, would be the first to be announced during the transition.
It has been widely speculated that Kelly would replace the retired surgeon after he left the White House.
Trump is expected to announce a second Cabinet member in the coming days, according to Axios, and a third could be confirmed on Tuesday.
The three are expected to be confirmed in a cabinet meeting in Washington, D.C., the site of a gathering of the nation’s top political leaders and a potential base of support for the president’s agenda.
The three Cabinet picks were initially slated to be nominated in person by Trump at his first Cabinet meeting last week, but the meeting was postponed due to Hurricane Harvey.
During that meeting, Vice President Mike Flynn, retired Army Lt.
Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s pick for Homeland Security secretary, and retired Gen. Keith Kellogg were among those confirmed as being eligible for the top job.
Trump announced the third Cabinet pick during a speech in Alabama, where he declared his administration was “the greatest in the history of the world.”
He also called for Congress to approve the nominees and for the American people to elect the next president in 2020.
“When you see that there’s one Cabinet member that’s actually going to be the most qualified person for the job, that’s going to make all of our Cabinet appointments, and all of the other cabinet appointments, so much easier,” Trump said.
Kelly, who served as the White National Guard commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, is known for his harsh criticism of the Islamic State militant group, as well as for his pro-Israel views.
Trump has said Kelly would be “the toughest person to beat” in the military.
Kelly is the son of retired Army Gen. David Kelly, who was the top general in the U.S. Army during the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and the 2004 invasion of Iraq.
Kelly said that the current president is trying to make “unrealistic” claims about the size of the U,S.
“He thinks we are the most powerful military in the world.
He thinks we’re the greatest military in history.
I think that is just not true,” Kelly said.
Trump said during a recent interview with ABC News that Kelly was not qualified to be secretary of defense.
“I’m not a big fan of Gen. Kelly.
I don’t like his personality.
But he’s an honorable guy,” Trump told ABC News.”
You have to give Gen. John Kelly credit for getting the job done, because it was done very quickly,” Trump added.
“He didn’t want to be there for a year.
He wanted to be in charge.”
Trump also criticized Trump’s response to the deadly terror attack in New York City, which he blamed on “bad people.”
The president called it “an act of terror,” saying that the attacks were “preventable” and the government is “doing everything it can to stop it.”
“We can’t afford to be doing things that we can’t control,” Trump tweeted on Monday.
“There’s an act of terrorism happening in New NY that we cannot allow.
The President is right.”
Kelly said on ABC’s This Week that he believed Trump’s tweet was “a big mistake.”
“I believe he has the worst instincts and instincts for a president I’ve ever seen,” Kelly told ABC.
“I think he is very insecure.
He is very arrogant.”
Kelly served as an adviser to President George W. Bush before being named as an assistant secretary of state for public diplomacy.
He left the Bush administration in 2003 to serve as the Army officer in charge of counterterrorism and counterintelligence.
Kelly joined the Army in 2008 and was a captain in the 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group.
He retired from the Army Reserve in 2009 after more than four decades of service.
He has been described as a veteran of the wars that followed the 9/11 attacks, and he is married to a military widow, Jennifer.
