The internet is having a field day with Donald Trump after he referred to his cabinet picks as “finalists,” in a tweet sent from his Twitter account Tuesday night.
In an apparent an effort to downplay reports of turmoil within his transition team following Tuesday’s shake-up that led to the ouster of several recently appointed members, the President-elect wrote on Twitter:
“Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Observers were apparently taken aback by the wording of that tweet. Several suggested Trump is treating the cabinet selection process like a contest.
Here’s a glimpse at how Twitter reacted:
