Trump to meet with Pence to weigh appointments

President-elect Donald Trump's transition team says the incoming president will meet with Vice President-elect Mike Pence in New York on Tuesday as he makes decisions on his senior staff and Cabinet.


Pence is overseeing the transition effort.


Spokesman Jason Miller tells reporters that Pence will meet with Trump at Trump Tower to review "a number of names" for the incoming administration.


Miller says, "This is an absolute top priority."


Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions has been meeting with Trump officials on Monday evening. Miller says Trump "would be lucky to have him in any capacity and vice versa."
