Previously I reported about one of Trump's campaign promises to drain the swamp, but with the people he placed in the cabinet is more like filling the swamp with sharks, instead of draining the swamp. He has also placed, in the different cabinet levels, people who are directly against the department they are running and want to destroy or eliminate the department in its entirety.
Donald Trump ran his campaign on the promise of draining the swamp, but more than half way through his administration he added more sharks to the swamp instead of draining the swamp. There were three groups of people that Trump added to his original cabinets with two of them being the most contraversial selections of all times.
The “Washington Outsiders” are the people who have made millions in the private sector, but have no-government experience.
The “Republican Insiders” are the ones who are deeply grounded in Washington or the republican mainstream and have experience inthe policy areas like health care that he said he would prioritize.
The “Military Figures” are the result of Trump obsession with authority figures like North Korea, Russia, and China. He selected three retired generals and a former Navy SEAL for his cabinet and top staff. He also brought on board other military leaders.
THE WASHINGTON OUTSIDERS
These are the people who have made millions in the private sector, but have no-government experience.
Stephen K. Bannon - Chief Strategist
Before Mr. Bannon became chairman of Mr. Trump’s campaign, he ran Breitbart News, a hard-right news and opinion website that often publishes nationalist, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim and racist sentiments. Mr. Bannon holds the same anti-establishment views of many of Mr. Trump’s supporters, though he was educated at Harvard and Georgetown and became wealthy working in entertainment and finance.
Ben Carson - Secretary of Housing and Urban Development
Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and former presidential candidate, was said to have indicated that he did not have the experience to run a federal agency. But he later cited his childhood in Detroit and his experience treating patients in the inner city as qualifications for the job.
Betsy DeVos - Education Secretary
Ms. DeVos is a noted Republican fund-raiser and activist for charter schools and for providing tax dollars to use toward tuition at private schools. She has not held public office but served as finance chairwoman of the Republican National Committee.
Linda McMahon - Small Business Administrator
Ms. McMahon, the billionaire former chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment and failed Senate candidate, was one of Mr. Trump’s biggest campaign donors.
Steven Mnuchin - Treasury Secretary
The wealthy hedge fund manager, Hollywood financier and former Goldman Sachs trader lacks experience in public policy but is seen as someone who can speak the language of Wall Street bankers.
Andrew Puzder - Labor Secretary
Mr. Puzder is the chief executive of CKE Restaurants, which operates the fast-food outlets Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. He has been a critic of Obama administration worker protections and of the Affordable Care Act, which he says has hurt the restaurant industry because rising premiums have left people with less money to spend dining out.
Wilbur L. Ross Jr. - Commerce Secretary
The billionaire investor is known as a risk-taking speculator with decades of experience on Wall Street, but he has never worked in government or managed a large organization.
Rex W. Tillerson - Secretary of State
The president and chief executive of Exxon Mobil has decades of experience negotiating with foreign companies, but he is expected to face close scrutiny in Senate confirmation hearings over his close relations with Russia. Mr. Tillerson is a longtime friend of President Vladimir V. Putin, and in 2012, the Russian government awarded him the country’s Order of Friendship decoration.
