TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is keeping mum when asked if she would take a position in President-elect Donald Trump's administration, saying she would "not discuss anything confidential."

Bondi spoke to reporters at the Tampa International Airport on Friday during a news conference about human trafficking. She said she is happy as Florida's attorney general.

She added that she's spoken to Trump and other members of the transition team about the issue of human trafficking and that Trump is "committed to fighting human trafficking in our country."

Most of Bondi's news conference focused on the issue, which she's been vocal about since taking office in 2011.
