Wednesday, December 7, 2016 (Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day)

President-elect Donald John Trump continues to fill cabinet positions. Here's a photo listing of the people, positions, with a brief bio of each appointee. I think some are also nominees, because the U.S. Senate has to approve them.

FULL LIST OF CABINENT APPOINTEES: www.hannity.com...

I wonder if President Trump will create any "czar" positions like President Obama did, for 45 positions?

I'll add to this thread as more are known. According to the above article, Donald Trump is about 50% done, as of today.

President-elect Donald Trump is planning to nominate Oklahoma Attorney General SCOTT PRUITT – an outspoken critic of the EPA – to lead the environmental agency, a senior transition source confirmed to Fox News.

ARTICLE: www.foxnews.com...

This should be good. I don't believe Pruitt feels that humans are causing Global Climate Change.

December 7, 2016

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen LINDA McMAHON, World Wrestling Entertainment’s (WWE) cofounder and former CEO, to head the Small Business Administration in his Cabinet, his transition team announced Wednesday.

“Our small businesses are the largest source of job creation in our country,” McMahon said in a statement. “I am honored to join the incredibly impressive economic team that President-elect Trump has assembled to ensure that we promote our country’s small businesses and help them grow and thrive.”

STORY: www.foxbusiness.com...

As a small business owner myself, I feel Linda McMahon is a stellar choice for heading the SBA! Since Donald Trump's entire adult life has been in owning businesses, this cabinet position is probably more important to him, than it was to most past Presidents.

I try not to duplicate what has already been done. (i.e. reinvent the wheel) I just bring it to ATS and let you do with it what you will. Ignoring it 100% is fine.

No one was chosen for race, gender, or because of donating to the campaign.

Establishment means qualified expert, experienced, and intelligent. I like the picks so far even a Democrat or two. As a patriot and business man myself, I am optimistic for the first time in years. And I will finally say it. I am sick to death of the Obama administration. I have hope again and it feels good, and I am sure as hell ready for change.

I used to be really into Alex Jones when I first got this stuff about 20 years ago.

I'm not sure if I became more discerning or he just got crazier, but it became too over-the-top for me.
