Donald Trump continues to use Twitter like no one before him, and on Tuesday, he turned to his trusted mode of communication to reassure followers that all is well as he makes the transition to the White House.

"Very organized process taking place as I decide on cabinet and many other positions," he tweeted. "I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!" Trump's transition team has been going through very public turmoil. Mike Rogers, a former House Intelligence Committee chairman who was advising Trump on national security picks, departed Tuesday. A former State Department official under former President George W. Bush, Eliot A. Cohen, tweeted Tuesday he had an exchange with Trump's transition team and recommended people "stay away. They're angry, arrogant, screaming 'you LOST!' Will be ugly."
