Trump to meet with Florida AG Pam Bondi while searching for Jeff Sessions’ replacement
President Donald Trump is slated to meet up with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi next week while looking for his next top law enforcement officer.
McClatchy reported that a source close to the president told the media outlet that Trump will meet with Bondi — considered to be one of the members of his attorney general shortlist — while he’s in Florida visiting his Mar-a-Lago resort for Thanksgiving.
Bondi, the report noted, cannot run for Florida AG after her second term ends and has long been considered a contender for U.S. attorney general due to her role as a Trump campaign surrogate in 2016.
In 2017, the president appointed Bondi to his Opioid and Drug Abuse Commission that’s chaired by former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
