Internal disagreements over key Cabinet appointments have split the Trump transition team, with one source describing it as a “knife fight.”

At stake are internal West Wing positions and key national security posts.

The disagreements highlight the dilemma faced by Trump, who is now torn between a campaign promise to shake up Washington and the need to build a national security team with policy experience.

Possible candidates for secretary of state include Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton. Retired Gen. Michael Flynn is a possible national security adviser pick, and Sen. Jeff Sessions may be in the running for secretary of defense or attorney general.
