-Wilbur Ross, the billionaire investor who donated the maximum contribution to Trump's joint fundraising committee, was tapped for Commerce Secretary. According to Reuters, Trump just made the announcement during a luncheon in Washington honoring his supporters. In 2009, President Obama appointed Steelers owner Dan Rooney as US ambassador to Ireland.

"The ambassador, Woody Johnson, Court of St. James".

Johnson, 69, was the national finance chairman for Jeb Bush's presidential campaign, but endorsed Trump in May. This is probably encouraging news for Jets fans, who haven't seen their team make the playoffs since 2010 and have lamented Johnson's constant meddling with the team.

If U.S. buyers are choosing German models, as Trump suggests, then "that's why the U.S. needs to build better cars ", he said. The largest of BMW's plant in the United States is located in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Although his appointment is yet to be made official, Johnson is widely expected to take over from Matthew Barzun, who served as USA ambassador to the United Kingdom since 2013.

Trump also added that Johnson will be "going to Saint James".

In May, Johnson endorsed Trump for president. During the 2016 election Johnson served as vice chairman of The Trump Victory Committee. Johnson will reportedly hand over his duties as owner of the Jets to his brother Chris.
