U.S. President-elect Donald Trump will formally announce more cabinet picks in the days to come.
There are reports Mitt Romney, once his biggest critic could be named the country's next secretary of state.
Kim Jung-soo keeps us up to speed with how the incoming adminstration is taking shape.
According to the New York Times and other media outlets, President-elect Donald Trump will formally announce his decision to appoint Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary and Wilbur Ross as the country's next Secretary of Commerce... as soon as Wednesday.
Both candidates have extensive ties to Wall Street and limited experience in government.
The 53-year old Mnuchin started his career at Goldman Sachs, and worked there for 17 years before becoming a producer of Hollywood movies such as "Avatar" and the "X-men" series.
He has been quoted in the past about his intent to "lower taxes and life regulations," but experts agree that Mnuchin is severely under-experienced in matters of public policy.
It remains to be seen how he will support Trump's campaign pledges, which include repealing the Dodd-Frank financial reform act... and reducing the corporate tax rate.
The 79-year-old Ross, meanwhile, is a private equity billionaire.
He worked 24 years in the investment banking company Rothschild Inc, and helped Trump retain control of his casinos, which had been under threat from lenders,... by striking a deal with them.
Meanwhile, Trump met with Mitt Romney and Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus in New York on Tuesday.
In a quick meeting with reporters after the meeting, Romney reportedly praised the president elect, saying that Trump offered a vision "that connected with the American people in a very powerful way."
This is a sharp departure from Romney's past remarks -- he had previously called Trump a "phony" and a "fraud" who made worthless promises.
Earlier the same day, Trump announced his pick of Elaine Chao as his transportation secretary.
If confirmed,... she will become the second woman to be named to a cabinet position under Trump... and the first Asian-American.
Trump has also named orthopedic surgeon and Republican Congressman Tom Price as health secretary.
