President-elect Donald Trump has two priorities in assembling a government and team: loyalty and effectiveness, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Friday night.
In an interview on Fox News' "Hannity," Conway said a process is in place to cull through a number of people who want to serve in the new Trump administration.
"Donald Trump honors loyalty," she said. "That is important to him. He is loyal to people in return."
She added he also wants "to find people that are qualified and effective to do the job."
"I think those are probably the two major criteria for him," she said. "I will tell you that there are very talented men and women who were a part of his campaign, and who were frankly part of his outside advisers, or folks who supported him – who did so vocally or visibly."
"We are hearing from many of them," she said. "There is a process in place. We have an executive director working tirelessly to process some of these credentials and see where we are."
She said, however, what really excites the transition team is Trump's victory itself.
"People finally got their wish, they got the outsider… somebody who is going to go to Washington as our president, who owes no one anything," she said. "That is truly an election for the people, of the people and by the people."
