North Texas Congressman Meets With Trump

A Dallas Congressman may be in line for a top job in the Trump Administration.

Jeb Hensarling spent some time Thursday meeting with the President-Elect in New York.

“I’m on his team. I’m excited for what he can do for America… and, it was just a real honor to be here” Hensarling told reporters following his meeting with Trump.

Hensarling is believed to be a serious candidate to be Trump’s Treasury Secretary.

“We were talking tax policy… we were talking Dodd-Frank… we were talking trade. It was a wonderful conversation, and I stand ready to help the President” Hensarling told reporters following the meeting.

Senator Ted Cruz met with Trump earlier this week amid reports he might be a candidate to be Attorney General–or perhaps a U.S. Supreme Court Nominee. Congressman Michael McCaul and former Governor Rick Perry have also been mentioned as possibilities for high-ranking posts in the new Administration.
