Donald Trump Cabinet In White House Crisis Simulation

Donald Trump's cabinet arrived at the White House for a series of crisis simulations.


Washington:  Members of Donald Trump's cabinet arrived at the White House on Friday for a series of crisis simulations designed to prepare them for taking office next week.

Current cabinet secretaries as well as Trump's national security advisor, Mike Flynn, and his state and defense picks Rex Tillerson and James Mattis are among those taking part.

The White House said the tabletop exercises will go over previous crises like natural disasters and national security emergencies and game out hypothetical future scenarios.

"Some (are) related to domestic emergency response, the response to a natural disaster or a significant weather event, for example," said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

"It also will include some foreign policy and national security exercises as well."

"The exercise provides an opportunity to familiarize members identified by the president-elect to fill senior administration positions on the authorities, policies and coordination structures that this administration has used to respond to major domestic incidents."

Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said the exercise was to help ensure a "seamless transition."
