Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and a vice presidential candidate during Sen. John McCain’s campaign run, said she could easily see herself serving in Donald Trump’s White House administration, say, as an energy secretary.
“I think a lot about the Department of Energy because energy is my baby,” Palin said, during an interview on “State of the Union” on CNN. “Oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations, for us to import their … resources.”
She went on, adding she might not hold the job that long, however.
“I think a lot about the Department of Energy,” she said. “And if I were head of that, I’d get rid of it. And I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states.”
And one more comment, the Hill reported: “So you know, If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be … really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.”
Trump, the frontrunner for Republican candidates, has previously stated the possibility of appointing someone like Palin to a Cabinet role.
