After Donald Trump pulled off the shocking upset over Hillary Clinton to become the new president-elect, many wondered who he would surround himself with in the White House. Trump has since made controversial picks, and is now asking advice from questionable people for who he should select next.

Trump advice

On Thanksgiving, Donald Trump held a dinner party at his Mar-a-Lago report in Palm Beach. Florida and invited many celebrities to attend. The hot topic of conversation was who the president-elect should pick for Secretary of State. The top two choices are reportedly former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and the 2008 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Trump is apparently torn on who to choose, as he weighs the pros and cons for both men. As reported by The New York Post, and later LawNewz, on November 27, Trump was seeking advice from the celebrities in attendance on who he should have lead the State Department.

According to the original report in The New York Post, Trump was asking "everybody" at the Thanksgiving dinner party who the next Secretary of State should be. On the guest list was legendary boxing promoter Don King, and male model Fabio. "Donald was walking around asking everybody he could about who should be his secretary of state," The New York Post writes.

The overall tone in the room was that the celebrities were more in favor of Giuliani, often offering criticism for the former governor of Massachusetts. In addition to Don King and Fabio, Donald Trump also polled Ike Perlmutter, CEO of Marvel Entertainment, and Christopher Nixon Cox, the granddaughter of former President Richard Nixon. While it's unknown when Trump will make his selection offical, even members of his former campaign are speaking out. Making the rounds on the Sunday political talk shows, former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was critical of Mitt Romney, openly questioning his potential loyalty

Moving forward

Regardless of who Donald Trump selects as his new Secretary of State, he will have less than two months to fill the remaining spots in his cabinet and administration. Previous reports from The New York Times and CNN quote advisors close to Trump and confirm that he has been "overwhelmed" with the job duties as president-elect, and that he has requested additional time with President Obama to help him prepare for being commander in chief.
