Trump Commends Acting Cabinet Officials

President Donald Trump has said he is not in a rush to name permanent appointees to key government leadership positions in his administration, CNN reported Sunday.

"Well, I'm in no hurry. I have acting (administration officials). And my actings are doing really great," he told reporters Sunday at the White House.

Patrick Shanahan, former deputy secretary at the Department of Defense, assumed the role of acting DoD secretary following the resignation of James Mattis.

Other officials who took on top cabinet roles on an interim basis include Mick Mulvaney, acting White House chief of staff and Office of Management and Budget director; acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt; and Matthew Whitaker, acting attorney general, according to the report.
