Donald Trump denies transition disarray after sackings

US President-elect Donald Trump has defended his handling of the transition to the White House, amid reports of disarray in his team.

Mr Trump tweeted that the process of selecting his new cabinet and other positions was "very organised".

US media say two senior members of the transition team working on national security have been forced out.

Mr Trump, a property tycoon and Republican outsider, won an unexpected victory against Hillary Clinton.

He has already replaced New Jersey Governor Chris Christie with Vice-President-elect Mike Pence as head of the transition team.

Media reports say Mr Trump's son-in-law and close adviser Jared Kushner was behind the change.

Mr Christie was New Jersey attorney general when Mr Kushner's father was tried and jailed in the state for tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions and witness tampering in 2004.

Former Congressman and House intelligence committee chairman Mike Rogers, who was handling national security for the transition, announced on Tuesday that he was leaving.

He and another member of the national security team, Matthew Freedman, were sacked, according to the New York Times.

Mr Rogers is thought to have been close to Mr Christie, while Mr Freedman is said to be a protege of Paul Manafort, Mr Trump's former campaign manager who quit in August.
