He has made a lot of dumb hires. In that respect he is very naive, he thinks everyone is as sincere as he is in service to their country.

You are right about that. For a man who has excelled in the shark tank of NYC big business he really seems rather like a Boy Scout (circa 1960 Boy Scout) about government. He really seemed to have no conception of the interlaced patterns of lying, manipulating, influence networks and profound moral and fiduciary corruption that is the Beltway culture today. The end of the Cold War created a new universe where tens of thousands of inner circle people and many institutions (CIA, FBI, etc) had to redefine the threat matrix to justify their existence at the levels they were at. This really unleashed forces that could not be controlled. I am sure DJT was dumbfounded when he found out how ethically and morally challenged men who were career military or CIA or FBI where. As one who was a career munchkin in this world I still find the level of depravity to be amazing. We fought the Cold War for this?
