Decisions Decisions.

Well as it looks like Donald Trump’s presidency  is getting closer and closer, and so that means a new cabinet needs to be form. Donald has to choose from a long list of professional, hardworking, and intelligent politicians. Which has been a little awkward due to the 2016 campaign where harsh words were said by him and his other Republican nominees. Since the choice of choosing your own cabinet brings two factors. Which are rewarding factions that backed them in the election, and broadening their support by choosing unifying figures. Which of course brings the awkward part because many things were said and people thought that because of those false accusations relationships would be broken, but apparently that is all water under the bridge. So the question now is who will be nominated by Donald Trump for his cabinet. Some of his choices have been said to be bad decisions, but for all I know some of them could be great. AT the moment lets see who he already asked.

Pruitt was a State Senator, representing Tulsa and Wagoner counties from 1998 until 2006. Not only that but he also has a close relationship with the fossil fuel industry. How close? Lets just say he has many lawsuits he has filed against the EPA. Which now he is someone ahead of. Donald Trump appointed fossil fuel and natural gas expert, to the head the E.P.A. Administrator, which is the Environmental Protection Agency. This decision brings a sense of strong comparison, because choosing someone who isn’t particularly  environmental friendly to be environmental friendly does not really work well. Even if Donald or Scott do not believe in global warming, I am hoping that they still understand that one: fossil fuels and natural gas will not be sufficient for us in the near future. And two is that if we do not make an effort in make (at least) The United States environment friendly when the whole world is working on saving the planet, then we are honestly a nation that cares for others. Because pollution effects everyone.

Mattis also known as Mad Dog Mattis, who is a retired United States Marine Corps general who last served as the 11th Commander of United States Central Command from August 11, 2010 to March 22, 2013. General Mattis, now retired, has been a critic of the Obama administration. He would need a waiver from Congress to lead the Pentagon because he has been out of uniform for less than seven years. Which this examples shows the power that the Republican party has. That when there has been set rules, they would try their best to go around those rules and to continue their plan that they have already set with. But throughout his years on the force, there has many occasion where he has said somethings that were either inappropriate and offensive. But of course, we already elected a President that did the same exact thing, so I guess the phrase, “If it ain’t broke then don’t fix it,” has been taken seriously.

Screen Shot 2016-12-09 at 3.39.46 PM.pngBen Carson  was also given a position. He finally accepted the position of  Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Which surprises me, because for awhile there Ben Carson said that he didn’t want to the job, because he felt that he wouldn’t amount to that expectation. Which also brings another question to me, making wondering why was he even running for President? Not I am not saying that HUD is an easy job, but I am asking why would he decide now to tell himself that he wasn’t ready to take on a big job like HUD. What would happen if he was elected President and then he just comes out and says, “I’m sorry but I do not think I am capable of handling this job.”

The latest news are telling us that Mitt Romney made also be getting an upgrade from his old job. Which makes, these two have had a long connection and they tend to discuss everything. What makes this choice unpredicted was the many foul comments that they have said against one another. Either calling each other weak. unfit, or a disappointment to the Republican Party. But like I said earlier, it is now water under the bridge. Now the reason for discussion is not because some of the people Donald Trump has nominate are people that have terrible things about him, but the discussion is what will things be like. We have a man that loves oil that the is now head of environmental protection, we have another person who is known for his hot temper, and then we have a brain surgeon that on the very last day of election finally realized that he was unfit for a government position.
