  1. The author fails to mention that appointees are always political, while career government bureaucrats are supposed to be impartial and not involved in political campaigns except on their own time and dime.

    It’s entirely within Trump’s power to choose appointees, and those who opposed him already made their bed, when they could have remained neutral or said they’d support the GOP nominee whoever won. We now know at least Jeb Bush is a liar (if not all the Bushs who should be in the Democrat party IMHO) considering who they voted for and supported.

    I’m willing to give Trump a chance, even though I didn’t vote for him. If he increases freedom in the US, reigns in government overreach, and cuts spending then I’ll thank him. If not, then my prediction he’ll be just more of the same, except on immigration and trade, will be right.
