Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he's hopeful that a half-dozen of President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet picks will be in place by "day one."

McConnell met with the president-elect for about an hour in New York on Monday.

He tells reporters the two "had a good meeting about the senate agenda," which included discussion of Cabinet confirmations and repealing and replacing President Barack Obama's health care law.

Democrats have complained the hearing schedule is too rushed. Some candidates haven't yet submitted ethics disclosure reports.

But McConnell insists that "everybody'll be properly vetted as they have been in the past." He adds that he's "hopeful that we'll get up to six or seven — particularly the national security team — in place on day one."
