Every one of you misses the point. The point is not that Trump is “man enough” to tell it like it is. (rolls eyes)
The point is, he - TRUMP - is the person hiring all of these “dumb as a rock” people to Cabinet positions. What does it say about his judgement? THAT, is the point.
Maybe the President should have listened to all those brilliant, patriotic Republicans in the Senate when they refused to approve Tillerson’s appoiintment.......oh...nevermind.
Trump is a total outsider. He has to depend on the Reps to make recommendations as far as staffing is concerned. There are about 4,000 jobs in the Plum Book. Tillerson was recommended by Bob Gates.
I give Trump credit for getting rid of the dead wood. Lincoln did something similar with his generals. Keep changing until you get the right one.
“The point is, he - TRUMP - is the person hiring all of these dumb as a rock people to Cabinet positions. What does it say about his judgement? THAT, is the point.”
It has been estimated that over 95% of the federal government is trying to destroy President Trump.
Most of the people with recent foreign policy experience are corrupt and/or would refuse to work for Trump.
President Trump was new to government in 2016 when Tillerson was chosen. People must have recommended him. Tillerson had many connections.
When he got into the job Trump realized he was not up to it. Trump replaced him, complimented him on his performance and allowed him to leave with dignity.
It is mazing that Trump has been able to accomplish as much as he has given the hostile environment that he is forced to operate in.
It is amazing that he is able to hire any good candidates given the abuse they are forced to endure.
That, is the point.
Everyone Trump hired came highly recommended and held top government or business leader positions. Trump’s fault his didn’t understand the scope of the government or large corporation’s incompetence.
Tillerson started as a production engineer and worked his way up to become chairman and chief executive officer of Exxon Mobile (the sixth largest revenue company in the nation). He held the position for eleven years.
On paper without knowing the person, this seems like a great hire. The man has a hell of a resume. Trump had to fill hundreds of positions. He had to fill these positions quickly based on resume and recommendations under duress by the media, Democrats, and never Trumpers.
The president is not the Human Resource manager, he has to depend on people to advise him on his hires. He had no government experience, he did a hell of a job considering the forces align against him and his experience. Sure there are plenty (should be expected), but most are blown completely out or proportion by the news media.
We are not at war (state’s job), best economy in decades, terrorism is on the decline, everyone that wants to work has a job, and doing a thousand things right. Forgive him the few he gets wrong.
Regarding Trump hires. When Trump came aboard he had no political machine to assist in the creation of a cabinet. Now he does. Personally, I don’t think it will matter much. You either work for Trump and his economics or you get out.
When Trump was elected, he had a very short time to put an administration in place. He did not have time to see some of his people under fire and in process. Nearly every administration does the same thing.
Trump’s judgement would make you out as a troll.
