Donald Trump's transition team is reportedly considering Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia for the title of energy secretary, according to sources close to the team. The conservative Democrat “is being considered to show the coal people how serious Trump is about coal,” one source said. Manchin told POLITICO Thursday afternoon that he and his staff haven’t been contacted by Trump’s transition team and that he had not planned any trips to New York City to meet with the president elect.
