President-elect Donald Trump has scheduled a full day of interviews for Monday back at Trump Tower with business leaders and law enforcement professionals, transition team officials announced.

Mr. Trump is spending the long Thanksgiving weekend at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, taking a break from the interview process, which has included meetings with nearly 60 individuals since his Nov. 8 election win.

The next round of interview when he returns to Trump Tower in Manhattan will include:

– Sandeep Mathrani, CEO of General Growth Properties;

– Former Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Paul Atkins, who currently serves as CEO of financial industry consultant firm Patomak Global Partners;

– Kathleen Hartnett White, director of the Armstrong Center for Energy and the Environment at the Texas Public Policy Foundation;

– Rep. Lou Barletta, Pennsylvania Republican;

– David L. Steward, chairman and co-founder of World Wide Technology Inc., one of the largest black-owned businesses in America;

– Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt;

– Sheriff David A. Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, and

– John A. Allison, founder of asset management firm Unio Holdings.

Mr. Trump named two more Cabinet-level nominees Wednesday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and school reform activist Betsy DeVos for secretary of education.

He previously tapped Sen. Jeff Sessions for U.S. attorney general, retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn for national security adviser, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for White House chief of staff and former Breitbart News chairman and Trump campaign chairman Stephen K. Bannon for senior strategist.
