A Trump Admin Won’t Include Any DC Insiders
A Trump administration will not have a cabinet stacked with “Washington DC insiders,” according to Donald Trump’s son, Eric.
In an interview Sunday, Eric Trump said his father will look for “the best and the brightest.”
“I think one thing my father will do, it’s going to be a different regime,” he said.
“It is going to be different people. He’s going to go out and find the most immensely competent and capable people. These are not going to be the Washington DC insiders who have been there for a hundred years and are the very reason why the system in Washington is very broken.”
“The amount of people who are not only calling but he’s speaking with is incredible and these are the best and the brightest,” he added.
Donald Trump has floated former Goldman Sachs executive Steve Mnuchin as a possible choice to head the Treasury Department. others could include Senator Jeff Session (R:AL), Governor Chris Christie (R:NJ), former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R:NY) and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson (R).
Sunday, Senator Sessions pushed back on criticism of Donald Trump over reported ties to Russian investors calling it “not the big issue for America today” and lauded Donald Trump’s plan to build better relations with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
“Donald Trump is right. We need to figure out a way to end this cycle of hostility that’s putting this country at risk, costing us billions of dollars in defense, and creating hostility that should not exist,” he asserted.
“We have a lot of bad leaders around the world that operate in ways we would never tolerate in the United States,” he added. “The question is, can we have a more peaceful, effective relationship with Russia, utilizing interests that are similar in a realistic way to make this world a safer place and get off this dangerous hostility with Russia.”
