Trump picks Barrack for inauguration

U.S. president-elect Donald Trump on Thursday picked Tom Barrack, a private equity executive and Trump's longtime friend, as a chairman of the inaugural committee, Associated Press reported.

Barrack is the founder of the Colony Capital private equity firm and he has supported the Republican candidate vigorously throughout his campaign. In his new role he will be responsible for raising funds for the ceremony amounting to millions of dollars.

He told CBS earlier today that Trump used all necessary means to convey "a disruptive message" and that the public will see "a softer, kinder" version of him now that he has won the election.
