Team Trump Denies Transition Is in Disarray

Updated on

Former Defense Intelligence Agency Director Michael T. Flynn is the leading contender to be President-elect Donald Trump’s national security adviser, two people familiar with the matter said Thursday.

Billionaire Wilbur Ross is under very serious consideration for Commerce secretary, with others in the mix, said the people, who requested anonymity because the selections haven’t been finalized. Ross is chairman of WL Ross & Co., the New York investment firm, and has been an economic adviser to the Trump campaign, calling for stronger trade enforcement.
