In late March 2017, President Trump nominated current White House deputy counsel Makan Delrahim to be assistant attorney general for the Antitrust Division. Delrahim formerly served as deputy assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice (DOJ) during President George W. Bush’s administration. Delrahim’s career spans antitrust, intellectual property and international trade fields, both in government service and in private practice. His confirmation hearing currently is scheduled for May 10. President Trump has not yet announced nominees for the three open commissioner positions at the Federal Trade Commission.
