Rudy Giuliani used to be called America’s Mayor. In the near future, he might be called America’s Secretary of State. Word is that he’s being considered for the role in a Trump administration.
The Associated Press reports via Boston.com:
Rudy Giuliani emerges as favorite for Trump’s secretary of state
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has emerged as the favorite to serve as secretary of state in Donald Trump’s incoming administration, a senior Trump official said on Monday — another indication the president-elect is putting a prize on loyalty as he narrows down his Cabinet picks.
The official, who was not authorized to speak on the record and requested anonymity, said there was no real competition for the job and that it was Giuliani’s if he wanted it. But a second official cautioned that John Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, remained in contention for the job.
Of course, the Associated Press had to throw this in:
Giuliani, 72, would be an out-of-box choice to lead the State Department. A former mayor, federal prosecutor and top Trump adviser, he lacks extensive foreign policy experience. Known for his hard-line law-and-order views and brusque manner, he would set a very different tone than previous holders of the job, including Trump’s ex-rival Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.
We’re going to have to just overlook certain parts of media reports, folks.
They’re going to take shots at the Trump administration any way they can.
Rudy would be a great choice. Certainly better than Hillary.
