Trump's Expanding List for Secretary of State - Stavridis, Huntsman, Tillerson, Bolton, Manchin

A mix of individuals now on the list.

The emergence of new names indicates that Trump is conflicted about his short list and faces persistent division in his inner circle of advisers over the key choice. The Trump transition team says Trump is considering as many as nine candidates for secretary of state, with the selection process appearing far from over.

Among the new names being discussed:

Retired Adm. James Stavridis: A four-star who spent more than 30 years in the Navy, the current dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts and a onetime possible VP candidate for Hillary Clinton. A senior Trump transition official told ABC News that the team is considering him for secretary of state. Stavridis' office told ABC News, "At the request of the Trump transition team, Adm. Stavridis will meet with President-elect Trump on Thursday of this week in New York. There has been no discussion of a position in the Trump administration."

ExxonMobile CEO Rex Tillerson: The Texas oil executive is scheduled to visit Trump Tower in New York for a meeting with the president-elect on Tuesday. A senior transition official told ABC News he is under consideration for secretary of state. Tillerson, who has worked at Exxon for more than 40 years, has been the CEO since 2006. He has no formal diplomatic experience. According to various news reports, Tillerson supports the Paris climate agreement.
