ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A steady stream of Cabinet hopefuls made their way across the opulent lobby of New York's Trump Tower to meet with President-elect Donald Trump on Monday, spurring continued speculation about the policies he will put in place when he takes office on Jan. 20. Trump met with Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard and former Texas Governor Rick Perry, the latest in a series of dozens of meetings in a relatively open - and unconventional - transition process. Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser, told reporters the President-elect will announce his Cabinet picks when he's ready and "not a minute sooner." Trump spoke often with reporters camped out at his New Jersey golf course over the weekend about his deliberations, but has not yet given a traditional news conference to talk about his priorities. He was holding an off-the-record meeting with a group of television anchors and executives on Monday afternoon. The president-elect was not expected to announce new Cabinet picks on Monday, but later in the day planned to release a video on what he hopes to work on first with the Republican-controlled U.S. Congress, his spokesmen told reporters. That list of priorities included trade, lifting regulations on oil, gas and coal production; protecting U.S. infrastructure from cyber attacks; and immigration, his spokesmen said. Trump planned to decamp from his Manhattan office tower for Mar-a-Lago, a golf resort he owns in Florida, on Tuesday or Wednesday, where he will spend Thanksgiving on Thursday, a spokesman said. Vice President-elect Mike Pence will travel to Mississippi later this week for the holiday, where his son Michael, who is in the Marines, is stationed.
