President-elect Donald Trump is planning to meet on Monday with Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and former Texas governor and GOP presidential rival Rick Perry.

That's according to top aide Kellyanne Conway. She told Fox News on Monday that Perry is a possible contender to lead the Defense or Energy departments and that Fallin is being considered to head the Interior Department.

In a separate interview on CNN, Conway said Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker is "rumored" to be on the list for secretary of state. Mitt Romney, a former Trump critic, has been discussed as a contender for that job as well.

Conway warned against drawing any conclusions from Trump's meetings. She said: "Not everyone who consults with the president-elect or meets with him is going to be in his Cabinet."
