Trump says he plans to interview candidates for staff replacements

President Donald Trump says he plans to interview potential staff replacements while he’s in Florida for a Thanksgiving break.

Trump would not say Thursday which positions he was interviewing people for, but Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and chief of staff John Kelly are considered among the most vulnerable in the administration.

Trump has said he’s generally happy with his cabinet but expects to make several additional changes. Trump demanded and received Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ resignation immediately after the midterm elections.

Trump was speaking to reporters after a Thanksgiving telephone conference with troops deployed abroad. He told the troops, “Your courage truly inspires us.”
