The cabinet of Donald Trump will replace Barack Obama's cabinet when each nominee is confirmed by the United States Senate and administered the oath of office, on or after January 20, 2017. Before confirmation, a high level career member of an executive department heads this pre-confirmed cabinet on an acting basis. The cabinet's creation is part of the transition of power following the 2016 United States presidential election.
