Donald Trump could quickly gain more Republican support if he announced who the members of his inner cabinet will be, says David Gelernter, a Yale professor and contributing editor to The Weekly Standard.

"For all the GOP's anguish, Trump could turn things around tomorrow if he chose. A Trump presidency will come down to the people around him," David Gelernter writes in The Standard’s May 30th issue.

"Trump ought to tell us, now, who his close advisers and inner cabinet will be. Unless he does that, there is no telling how he will govern.

"But if he made the announcement and did it right (having convinced his chosen advisers to work with him for the good of the country), he could win over nearly all Republicans by the next day."

Gelernter — a professor of computer science at Yale University and author of "Tides of Mind: Uncovering the Spectrum of Consciousness," published by Liveright — isn’t sure that’s in the cards for the presumptive GOP presidential candidate.

"Will Trump do anything like this? Name his advisers and run as a grown up? Everything about him says no, except this: He wants desperately to win," Gelernter writes.

"And this announcement would be the sort of dramatic, unexpected gesture he loves. So
don't put it past him. It could happen."
