According to the Trump transition team press pool, the Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii will be Trump’s first meeting of the day, ahead of sit-downs with Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Mary Fallon and Elaine Chao respectively.

Gabbard drew media attention for her staunch support of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary and subsequent resignation as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee after the revelation that then-Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz favored Hillary Clinton over Sanders in the primary.

Trump’s transition team has stated that it would be open to bringing Democrats serve in the Trump White House.

It is not yet known what she will discuss with the President-elect or if he plans on offering her a position in the incoming administration, though the New York Times reports that she is being considered for UN ambassador.
