President-elect Donald Trump is considering a woman and an openly gay man to fill major positions in his new leadership team, history-making moves that would inject diversity into a Trump administration already facing questions about its ties to white nationalists.At the same time, Trump is weighing whether to select the first woman to serve as chairman of the Republican National Committee.Internal deliberations about staffing come a day after Trump made overtures to warring Republican circles by appointing RNC Chairman Reince Priebus as his White House chief of staff and Breitbart News executive Stephen Bannon as chief strategist and senior counselor.The two men had made up the president-elect's chief of staff shortlist, and while Priebus received that job, Bannon's post is expected to wield significant clout. Priebus on Monday defended the media mogul, saying the two made an effective pair as they steered Trump past Democrat Hillary Clinton and toward the presidency. Priebus, who lashed the RNC to Trump this summer despite some intraparty objections, is a GOP operative with deep expertise of the Washington establishment that Trump has vowed to shake up.In announcing the appointments, Trump said Priebus and Bannon would work as "equal partners" -- effectively creating two power centers in the West Wing.
