Trump’s cabinet

With the recent change of power in the White House, there have been a lot of changes. One of these changes is a whole new cabinet handpicked by Donald Trump himself. His choices have been heavily criticized, being called the most uneducated and whitest cabinet in modern history. Some of the appointees, such as Betsy DeVos and Rex Tillerson, have had huge controversy surrounding them, including that they don’t have the correct qualifications for the job.

Rex Tillerson, former Exxonmobil chief executive, was certainly an interesting choice for secretary of state. The secretary of state’s main job concerns foreign affairs and building relationships with other countries. This raises concerns to many, choosing a business man. The democrats in the senate expressed their concern about whether or not he would put Exxon or the people first. Tillerson has also been heavily criticized for his close ties to Russia; a concerning relationship for the secretary of state to have.

Jeff Sessions, appointed attorney general, is also a concerning pick for many. Attorney general is arguably the most important job in the cabinet, having control of law jurisdiction. He’s originally a senator from Alabama, so people aren’t questioning whether he has experience for the job. However, his views on climate change in particular are worrying. He is considered a “skeptic,” besides the recent facts coming out proving global warming, as well as 2016 being the hottest year ever. He’s also been tagged as a racist, with former colleagues saying he made jokes about the Ku Klux Klan. This is a major concern to the American population considering he would hold a very high position of power.

Overall, Trump’s cabinet has caused a lot of worry in the American population so far. Without them getting the chance to actually make actions, it’s hard to come to conclusions, but based on many of their track records, the citizens have a right to be concerned.
