Trump’s new picks:
Steve Mnuchin, hedge fund manager: to Treasury
Elaine Chao, wife of Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell with Labour Dept experience, and potential ‘light hands’ on safety: to Transportation
Wilbur Ross, bankruptcy investment specialist: to Commerce
Tom Price, anti-Obamacare orthopaedic surgeon, and Georgia Congressman: to Healthcare
and, Mary Fallin, ‘drill baby drill’ Oklahoma Governor is the most likely candidate for Interior Secretary
Trump is getting the Republican Party on his side with these picks. Having assuaged the party, is he thinking he can now be more controversial on defense and state? In other words is he going to pursue his international isolationist instincts with like minded appointees in those posts?
