After the win comes the work. All eyes are now on who will be in Donald Trump’s cabinet. So who are tipped as the top contenders?
Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and high-profile Trump supporter, could be in line to become the next Attorney General.
While former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is thought to be in the running for secretary of the interior – that would put her in charge of natural resources.
Alabama senator Jeff Sessions, one of Trump’s most fervent supporters in the US Congress, is tipped for a prominent role in the cabinet – perhaps defence secretary.
Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the house, may get the secretary of state role or Chief of staff.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whose popularity has been hit by the so-called “Bridgegate” scandal, is also a possible pick for the Attorney General job.
And Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway – who helped get a more disciplined approach to the candidate – is tipped as a potential White House senior adviser.
