    Donald Trump's aides are considering a number of his loyalists for major posts should he win the White House, NBC News reported. 

    Three campaign advisers said that among the names being considered are Rudy Giuliani for attorney general, Newt Gingrich for secretary of state, retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn for defense secretary or national security adviser, Trump finance chairman Steve Mnuchin for Treasury secretary, and Republican National Committee finance chair Lew Eisenberg for commerce secretary.

    Reince Priebus, under consideration as Trump's chief of staff, earned the candidate's trust by steadfastly defending him while other top Republicans denounced Trump or shied away from brand.

    Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions has taken a major role managing the transition effort as the official transition chief, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, has drifted from the campaign. It's not clear if Christie is being considered for a significant role in a potential administration.
