The Washington Post reported that “Trump has sometimes expressed confusion about what agencies and secretaries are in charge of what duties.” Loyalty trumps knowledge as the President plays musical chairs with nominations and appointments.
John Kelly, a retired general, started as Secretary of Homeland Security before Trump made him Chief of Staff.
Mike Pompeo, a three-term Congressman, began as CIA Director before Trump nominated him as Secretary of State.
Ben Carson, an acclaimed neurosurgeon, serves as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Rick Perry, the former Governor of Texas, is the Secretary of Energy, though Trump reportedly considered nominating him as VA secretary in March.
Ronny Jackson had been the Trump’s physician before he nominated him to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs (he eventually withdrew) despite having little management experience.
Donald Trump has assembled the most unqualified and corrupt cabinet in modern American history. His administration’s unabashed and unchecked cronyism has created a government of officials with no experience in the offices they oversee.
