Trump picks Nikki Haley and Betsy DeVos as first women for cabinet


US President-elect Donald Trump has appointed the first two women to his incoming administration.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was nominated as US envoy to the UN and Betsy DeVos as education secretary.

Both are former critics of Trump, with Haley once saying she was "not a fan", and DeVos branding the Manhattan tycoon an "interloper".

Meanwhile, Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he was "seriously considering" his presidential primary rival Ben Carson for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
