Donald Trump Adds 2 New Appointments to Growing Administration

Nov 25, 2016

Donald Trump made two new appointments to his growing administration over the holiday weekend, according to reports.

The president-elect chose Kathleen Troia "K.T." McFarland, a former Pentagon official, as a deputy national security adviser and election lawyer Donald McGahn as White House counsel.

McFarland, who served as assistant secretary of defense under President Ronald Reagan, worked as a Fox News (fox) analyst and will serve under Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, Trump's choice for National Security Adviser. McGahn is a former FEC official who served as Trump's campaign lawyer.

Trump's choice of McFarland adds a third woman to an administration that critics have noted is overwhelmingly older and male.
