Last week, we told you that despite liberal mainstream media reporting to the contrary, President-elect Donald Trump was well ahead of the curve when it came to rolling out the nominations for his incoming Cabinet.

Friday, during an appearance on "Fox & Friends," he suggested his work might well be done long before most presidents even start rolling out their nominations. The president-elect said:

"We have tremendous people joining the Cabinet and beyond the Cabinet, so you'll be seeing almost all of them next week. You know, we're getting credit for having one of the greatest Cabinets ever picked.

"These are people of great distinction, great success, which is what you need. You know, you're negotiating with people. You can't have people that didn't know how to get there."

So far, Trump has announced his nominees for seven of the 15 Cabinet positions and four additional Cabinet-level appointments. With an aggressive agenda planned, it's likely the president-elect wants his Cabinet ready to hit the ground running.

The eight Cabinet positions yet to be announced are:

  • secretary of state
  • secretary of the interior
  • secretary of agriculture
  • secretary of labor
  • secretary of housing and urban development
  • secretary of energy
  • secretary of veterans affairs
  • secretary of homeland security

Trump has yet to name appointees for the following Cabinet-level positions as well:

  • director of the Office of Management and Budget
  • administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency
  • U.S. trade representative
  • chair of the Council of Economic Advisers
  • administrator of the Small Business Administration
  • director of National Intelligence

In all, the Trump Administration has about 4,000 appointments to make prior to Jan. 20. Approximately 1,500 of those require Senate confirmation.
