Trump’s cabinet is shaping up to be mostly establishment warmongers from the last Bush administration. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore, and Alonzo Bodden, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Donald Trump is going to be president, and he’s about to make his first hires. Who will join the Trump Cabinet™? Over the course of the campaign, the former celebrity mogul dropped a number of hints, and he flirted with the idea of unveiling his Cabinet, reality TV-style, at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. (It didn’t happen.) Since Trump won the election on Tuesday, his aides have started to fill in the gaps. Trump hasn’t talked much about what he’s looking for in a Cabinet secretary, but he has promised that his picks will have “great ability” and will not be “politically correct.”
Here’s a look at who might make Trump’s A-list:
Treasury: “We don’t have our best and our brightest negotiating for us—we have a bunch of losers, we have a bunch of political hacks, we have diplomats,” Trump said in an interview on Morning Joe last summer, when asked who he would name as treasury secretary. “I know the smartest guys on Wall Street. I know our best negotiators. I know the overrated guys, the underrated guys, the guys that nobody ever heard of that are killers, that are great. We gotta use those people…Guys like [former General Electric CEO] Jack Welch. I like guys like [private equity giant] Henry Kravis. I’d love to bring my friend Carl Icahn. I mean, we have people that are great.””*
