Donald Trump lost the popular vote in the past election. His opponent had more than 2,5 million votes, which ordinarily, might have the “winner’ reflect on the fact that his opponent was more popular than him. But, this is the era of Donald Trump, whose supporters insist that one should not take his words, literally, since any fervent supporter knows that when he says that he “will impose a 35% tariff on goods from China,” he really did not mean a tariff. Or, perhaps, he has yet to learn that Congress passes tariffs, not the President.
His selections for the Cabinet are interesting, to say the least. Trump insisted throughout campaign that he “knew more than the generals,” and once in office, he would bring in people who were not part of the failed military. So, who has he appointed, three generals to serve in the Cabinet. Heck,he even appointed the head of World Wrestling to be in charge of Small Business. Heck, he appointed calm, quiet, Ben Carson to head Urban development. Perhaps, perhaps, there is a reason to this madness. If Trump appoints incompetent people to serve in his Cabinet, cries will emerge to end these Cabinet positions.
In other words, Trump’s goal is to appoint people who will destroy their Cabinet position. I guess this would save some money.
