Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says he has "no expectations" when it comes to his role in the new Trump administration.
Giuliani is the leading contender for attorney general, according to two sources familiar with the discussions. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, once a top candidate for the job, appears to no longer be in the running.
"Donald has been my friend for 28 years, all my work on behalf of him is done out of great loyalty and friendship to him. I can see already he is going to be a great president and I'm glad I can play a small role," said Giuliani as he left Trump Tower on Friday.
Trump aides convened at the real-estate mogul's apartment building in New York City to begin weighing candidates for some of the 4,000 jobs he will have to fill shortly after he takes office on Jan. 20, 2017.
Trump said three of his five children and his son-in-law Jared Kushner would help oversee the transition.
Vice president-elect Mike Pence was put in charge of Trump's White House transition team on Friday.
Giuliani was named one of the vice chairs.
