Attorney General Pam Bondi may or may not wind up with a Trump administration job that months ago was widely assumed by her friends and allies to be imminent, but on Wednesday she will moderate President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump’s Women’s Empowerment Panel at the White House. 

Panelists include U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Administrator of the Small Business Administration Linda McMahon, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Seema Verma.

“As Florida’s first female attorney general, I am honored to moderate this panel with such remarkable and accomplished leaders,” said Attorney General Bondi.

Also, according to Politico, Bondi also used the opportunity to "talk about children's issues" in a meeting with Trump, DeVos and Ben Carson, secretary of housing and urban development.

She even took time to pose for a photo with Trump in the Oval Office. She was accompanied by former Tampa Bay Bucs coach Tony Dungy and fellow All Pro Dads advocate Mark Merrill, and Derrick Brooks, former Buc and co-founder of Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate High School in Tampa.
