MADISON, Wis. — President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team is ignoring questions about efforts to recount votes in key battleground states, focusing instead on the latest additions to his administration.

Trump has chosen Fox News analyst Kathleen Troia “KT” McFarland to serve as deputy national security adviser and campaign attorney Donald McGahn as White House counsel.

In Wisconsin, election officials say they will move forward with the first presidential recount in state history.

Trump is spending the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend with family at his Palm Beach estate, Mar-a-Lago, and is expected to return to New York on Sunday.

He is scheduled to meet Monday with several prospective administration hires, including Pennsylvania congressman Lou Barletta and Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David Clarke.
