President-elect Donald Trump has been working at a furious pace over the past week to interview possible candidates for the many governmental positions he must fill, as well as get advice from the most experienced people in the Republican party.
Several dozens names have been floating through the air as possible cabinet choices, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who discussed his meeting with Trump on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor.”
“We talked about a position but, you know, I’m not sure it was the right fit,” Huckabee explained to Eric Bolling who was subbing for O’Reilly.
Huckabee’s name has been floated as a possible secretary of state, as well as other cabinet positions. Huckabee did not specify which cabinet position he had Trump “talked about.”
Huckabee also claimed that he was being considered for either a cabinet position or an advisory role, Politico noted, but he declined to comment further.
“Primarily cabinet, but as to which agency, the reason that I wouldn’t discuss it is because somebody’s going to get that slot and I don’t want them to think that they are No. 2,” he explained.
Huckabee, a vocal Trump supporter, also denied the rumors that he is being considered to be ambassador to Israel, claiming that the media is once again just making things up.
“That was not something that was even discussed,” he stated. “Where the press comes up with this stuff, they only know. But it was totally manufactured. Not true.”
Independent Journal Review also reported that in addition to Huckabee sending out a strongly worded tweet on the matter, an anonymous Trump official denied the claim that Huckabee was under consideration for the ambassador position.
Media buzz that I was named Amb to Israel is NOT true. Was never discussed with PE Trump; slot probably not picked until State Dept in place

At this point the only person who really knows who is being considered for anything is Trump, and maybe a handful of his aides. Until the Trump team actually releases an official statement on who has been selected, we won’t know anything for certain, but it is fun to guess.
