Last updated 22 Mar 2021

Subject to Senate Confirmation, this is the who's who in the Trump Cabinet. As good political scholars you will of course remember that there is no real constitutional basis for the Cabinet as all executive power is vested in the President. With a Republican controlled Congress any nominees here are likely to be confirmed shortly after Mr Trump's inaugaration.

Names being replaced on the backs of Cabinet Table Chairs
