WASHINGTON — There’s officially one less name on Donald Trump ‘s list for Secretary of State. According to Trump ‘s transition team, Rudy Guiliani the former Mayor of NYC, has decidedly announced via the team that he has pulled out of any possible cabinet position for Trump.
The transition team noted in their statement that such was done on 29 November.
“Rudy Giuliani is an extraordinarily talented and patriotic American. I will always be appreciative of his 24/7 dedication to our campaign after I won the primaries and for his extremely wise counsel,” Trump said in a statement Friday. “He is and continues to be a close personal friend, and as appropriate, I will call upon him for advice and can see an important place for him in the administration at a later date. … Rudy would have been an outstanding member of the Cabinet in several roles, but I fully respect and understand his reasons for remaining in the private sector.” Giuliani will stay on as vice chairman of Trump’s transition according to the team itself.
