President Trump said Sunday he’s in “no hurry” to name permanent choices for a handful of Cabinet positions being filled in an acting capacity.

“I sort of like acting. It gives me more flexibility. Do you understand that?” Trump told reporters as he left the White House for Camp David. “I like acting. We have a few that are acting but we have a great, great, Cabinet.”

Trump’s Cabinet has undergone a series of changes in recent weeks. In addition to Bernhardt and Mulvaney, Matthew Whitaker is serving as the acting attorney general; Andrew Wheeler is serving as acting administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency; Patrick Shanahan is serving as acting Defense secretary; and Jonathan Cohen is serving as acting ambassador to the United Nations.
