President-elect Donald Trump has tapped three conservative loyalists and Army veterans to lead his national security and law enforcement teams.

Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, who jumped aboard the Donald Trump train long before the real estate mogul sewed up the Republican nomination, on Friday accepted the offer for Attorney General.

Trump has also picked Kansas congressman and Tea Party favorite Mike Pompeo to head the CIA under his administration.

And Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn has been chosen to be his National Security Adviser.

Sessions, 69, who advised Trump on immigration during the bruising campaign, was U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama from 1981 to 1993 before being elected to the U.S. Senate in 1996. He was re-elected to a fourth term in 2014, FOX reports.

Mike Pompeo, of Wichita, met with the president-elect’s transition team in New York’s Trump Tower earlier this week. He is a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence and has been an ardent supporter of the Patriot Act and the National Security Agency’s collection of bulk data.

Pompeo was a vocal critic of President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran and has come under fire for what his critics have called anti-Islamic rhetoric.

And Flynn, who served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) between 2012 and 2014, has advised Trump on national security issues for months. As national security adviser, he would work in the White House and have frequent access to the president.

Three rock solid picks.

God Bless.
