Trump’s Promise to Drain the Swamp & Help The Common Man Was a LIE

When TRUMP was campaigning for President he promised to “Make America Great Again”, “Drain the Swamp”, and “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”

By the cabinet appointments and actions being taken by Republicans, it is clear those promises were a LIE.

 

Trump promised to “Hire the Best People” but is hiring the worst, most incompetent people imaginable who got their positions, not as a result of being qualified, but a reward for being Republican Party Loyalists.

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.

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.”

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.

The measure, which passed with more than 51% backing in November, would have created an independent ethics commission, limited lobbyist gifts to lawmakers, banned officials from joining lobbying firms for two years after leaving office and created so-called “Democracy vouchers” for registered voters to steer toward their preferred candidates.

Trump and GOP killed an energy anti-corruption rule for no good reason, advocates say

The goal is to prevent foreign leaders from skimming off the payments that drillers and miners make to their countries. Such corruption, which enriches the politically connected but deprives regular people of their country’s mineral wealth, is known as the “resource curse.”
