Cubs Co-Owner will be named Deputy Commerce Secretary

President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence held a meeting with Todd Ricketts, a co-owner and board member of the Chicago Cubs last Saturday.

They met at the National Golf Club Bedminster clubhouse in Bedminster, New Jersey to discuss job opportunities within the administration for Ricketts.

The Trump transition team released a statement about the short meeting.

"A constructive conversation occurred with Mr. Todd Ricketts," the report said. "It involved domestic commerce, ingenuity, and growth for our country. Discussions on tax reform regulations and entrepreneurial initiatives were also included."

Trump announced his intent to nominate Ricketts as deputy commerce secretary on Wednesday morning.
