Donald J. Trump is America’s 45th president. Here are the men and women the president selected to advise him.
Breaking with his campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” Trump picked an unusual number of billionaires experienced in both lobbying the federal government and campaign finance. Time Magazine reports that eleven of Trump’s 19 appointees have sat on the boards of corporations or organizations that have lobbied the federal government, spending a total of $497.5 million. Rex Tillerson, Trump’s pick for Secretary State, is a former oil executive with no political experience and strong ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Many of Trump’s cabinet appointments are major Republican donors, like Linda McMahon - Trump’s pick to lead the Small Business Administration - who has given more than $20 million. Several appointees are friends of Trump who helped the president finance his campaign. Steve Mnuchin, Trump's nominee for Treasury Secretary, is a former Goldman Sachs senior executive and served as the Trump campaign's national finance chairman.
