President-elect Donald Trump will nominate three new members to the Trump administration, according to The Washington Post, a move that could spark the biggest reshuffling of the federal government since the early 1990s.
Trump has named Sens.
Tom Cotton, Mike Pompeo and Jeff Sessions to lead the Cabinet and he has also tapped Sens.
Ben Sasse and David Perdue to lead national security, health and education departments.
Trump will also name former Rep. Tom Price as secretary of health and human services.
The president-elect also will name two other Cabinet officials to replace former National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn, according the Post.
The Post said that the three nominees were: former Rep (R-Ga.)
Pete Hoekstra, who was named Trump’s top economic adviser.
Hoekstras appointment was seen as a major shakeup as Trump has been reluctant to name a Cabinet official.
The president has previously praised Hoekstras work on infrastructure, and his appointment is expected to come as a blow to a Republican Party that has long viewed the former Georgia congressman as a reliable ally.
Hoeks appointment is being seen as an attempt to shore up support for Trump and Democrats in the midterm elections that will occur next year.
The post also reported that Trump is also likely to nominate Sen. Tom Marino, a former Arizona congressman who served on Trump’s transition team and is now serving as director of the Office of Management and Budget, the post previously known as the White House budget office.
The administration has been beset by a string of controversies as the president-to-be has faced calls to step down amid reports that he pressured the FBI to drop its investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The former president-Elect also faced a backlash over his firing of Comey and the Whitehouse’s firing of the special counsel investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
The President-Elect and his Cabinet will continue to serve, The Post reported.
