Tag Archives: Donald Trump’s Unqualified Cabinet Picks
Two of Trumps campaign promises and slogans we’re “Drain the Swamp” and “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer”. As you can see by Trump’s horrible picks, his slogans and promises were lies believed by stupid, gullible people.
Donald Trump’s Cabinet Picks are hardliner Republican Millionaires and Billionaires who don’t give a dam about average Joe Americans.
Trump promised to “Hire the Best People” but is hiring the worst, most incompetent people imaginable.

Trump’s Labor Secretary Pick, Andrew Puzder Is Critic of Minimum Wage Increases
A article from the New York Times stated that Puzder sees “a role for government to provide advice to employers, rather than deterrence by ‘gotcha’ enforcement. This seems to indicate that he be on businesses side like most typical Republicans and will not stand up for workers who are abused by employers.
Labor Secretary nominee’s company underpays workers, group says
Why shouldn’t Mr. Andrew Puzder become Secretary of Labor? He has all the qualifications to become a perfect fit for the Trump administration. He’s a billionaire. He pays his employees starvation wages. He receives an enormous amount of corporate welfare as taxpayers are forced to provide food stamps, Medicaid and publicly assisted housing to keep his low wage workers alive. And he knows nothing about the job he is about to take. Sounds like the perfect nominee.
Jeff Sessions for Attorney General
The next Attorney General of the United States will have broad influence over whether each of us enjoy the benefits, opportunities, and protections afforded by the laws of the United States. The Attorney General heads the Department of Justice (DOJ), which not only prosecutes individuals charged with crimes but also represents the United States in state and federal court.

The real reason why trump picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson
Video title (Rachel Maddow): Exxon needs US policy change to cash in on big bet on Russia
Rachel Maddow shows ExxonMobil’s heavy investment in Russia, which it has yet to be able to exploit because of U.S. sanctions on Russia over the annexation of Crimea, and how a change in that policy could means hundreds of millions of dollars for ExxonMobil.
Rex Tillerson, 64, has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin
Tillerson, who has spent his entire adult life working at ExxonMobil, has no experience in government or in diplomacy. In fact, if confirmed, Tillerson would join an unprecedented and hard-to-fathom operation: in the Trump administration, the combined foreign policy experience of the president, Secretary of State, and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations is quite literally zero. Americans have simply never seen such a team.
What Tillerson has done, however, is work closely with Vladimir Putin, and spoken out in opposition to U.S. sanctions on Russia – the country accused of criminal intervention in the American political system. When making the case for Tillerson over the weekend, Trump boasted to Fox News, “He does massive deals in Russia.”
Betsy Devos Appointment as Education Secretary
Video title: Public (School) Enemy No. 1: Billionaire Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Pick for Education Secretary
Video description: Donald Trump nominated conservative billionaire Betsy DeVos to serve as Education Secretary. DeVos is the former chair of the Michigan Republican Party and a longtime backer of charter schools and vouchers for private and religious schools.
In response, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten said, “In nominating DeVos Trump makes it loud and clear that his education policy will focus on privatizing, defunding and destroying public education in America.” Since 1970, the DeVos family has invested at least $200 million in various right-wing causes. DeVos’s father-in-law is the co-founder of Amway and her brother is Erik Prince, founder of the mercenary firm Blackwater.
For more, we speak to former Assistant Secretary of Education Diane Ravitch, Center for Media and Democracy executive director Lisa Graves, and elected member of the Detroit Board of Education Tawanna Simpson.
Scott Pruitt, longtime adversary of EPA, confirmed to lead the agency
“Scott Pruitt as administrator of the EPA likely means a full-scale assault on the protections that Americans have enjoyed for clean air, clean water and a healthy climate,” Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club, said in an interview. “For environmental groups, it means we’re in for the fight of our lives for the next four years.”

Stephen Miller’s authoritarian declaration: Trump’s national security actions ‘will not be questioned’
