The vast majority of Department of Defense employees will remain in their positions after the President-elect Donald Trump assumes office on January 20, according to Pentagon spokesperson Peter Cook.

Axar.az reports that, most Department of Defense employees will remain in their positions after the President-elect Donald Trump assumes office on January 20, department spokesperson Peter Cook said in a briefing on Thursday.

"The vast majority of the people in this building will not be departing," Cook stated. "The continuity that is here within the Department of Defense is significant."
Earlier on Thursday, incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer announced that Trump has asked more than 50 federal employees to stay in critical posts throughout the government. They include Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work and Brett McGurk, the US special envoy for the global coalition to counter the Daesh.
Cook noted in addition to the uniformed members of the Defense Department, a significant number of civilians who would also serve the United States, regardless of who is president of the United States.

The Defense Department had seamless transitions in the past and is prepared to do the same this time around as well, Cook added.
