LOBBYISTS BEING REMOVED FROM POLITICS … HOW COULD THIS BE A BAD THING?
Following the ’60 Minutes’ interview with Donald Trump where it was reported that there were lobbyists in the Trump transition team, an interesting thing happened. They were all removed. Vice President-elect Mike Pence reportedly ordered the removal of all lobbyists from president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team. Being able to change on the fly when you see an issue or flaw is a good thing, not a bad one. The liberal New York Times can spew all their nonsense they want about Trump transition being in disarray, identifying flaws and correcting them are a good thing, that is what one does in business as opposed to beating a dead horse, or donkey. But then again, we all know what the people think of the media.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence reportedly ordered the removal of all lobbyists from president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team, The Wall Street Journal wrote on Tuesday night.
The decision was one of Pence’s first since formally taking over the team’s lead role. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was abruptly dismissed from the post last week.
Critics have excoriated Trump for including lobbyists, Washington insiders, and Republican Party veterans among his team, suggesting it contradicts the anti-establishment message that defined his campaign.
“[Americans] do not want corporate executives to be the ones who are calling the shots in Washington,” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said earlier Tuesday. “What Donald Trump is doing is that he’s putting together a transition team that’s full of lobbyists — the kind of people he actually ran against,” she said.
Donald Trump tweeted, “Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!”
