Unlike passed presidents, Trump appoints people based on their qualifications. And he demands they perform. Obama appointed his political opposition to the Administration to silence them (Biden, Clinton and Kerry). And Obama was content with letting them bungle their way through it, rather than risk having them as active opposition. Trump doesn't play that political game. You perform or you're out.

USA Today...completely wrong in your ridiculous statement. The opposite is true. Not one of trumps appointees is qualified...maybe Mnuchin (lowlife). President Obama was a great man, a wise man and the history books will tell the truth about that. Those books will report trump's end, in prison.

Rex Tillerson was not the right Secretary of State for president Trump and Tillerson disagreed with Trump on major decisions related to Iran, North Korea and Israel which are critical for Trump. Undoubtedly, President Trump needed new Secretary of State after more than a year with Rex Tillerson. The former CIA chief and now new secretary of state Mike Pompeo unlike Rex Tillerson supports his efforts to cancel the Iranian nuke deal, support Jerusalem as capital of Israel and support tough talks on removing North Korea nukes and SCBMs. Rex Tillerson never supported all-heartedly the Trump-Kushner policy in the Middle East and against North Korea including calling Kim Jung Un ĎLittle Rocket-man including cancelling the Iranian nuke deal while supporting Israel capital Jerusalem. Rex Tillerson was not great friend of Israel, and was not tough on the cancelling of the Iranian nuke deal as expected from President Trump.

Nah! Mnuchin's a lowlife financial predator. He and

his 1%er elitist "Besties" made Billions, by buying the

failed Indymac financial institution for peanuts and

then by evicting Senior Citizens, some of whom owed

only late fees of less than $100. So he's a scumb@g.

It's even worse than that. Cadet Bone Spurs can't retain

current employees, nor can he hire qualified new ones.

Mike is much more of a DJT stooge than Rex was.

They all didnít happen in the first year.

And Obama has the decency to fire people in person.

He didnít Tweet it out to the world before the person being fired was told.

Trump is not the model of professionalism, consideration, decency or credibility.

Trump is pretty much everything you would not want in an employee, a boss, a parent or a husband.

Trumpís behavior is more closely aligned with a Gang Member.

Oh now you want to move the goal post. Typical. Obama didn't have 95% negative coverage from the Media just because he won the election and you had to dream up a Russian collusion fraud that your own candidate was actually doing. Why do you hate America so much, after all they are supporting you with an EBT, Phone and Section 8 housing.

List Betsy Devos's "qualifications." LOL.

Why does Ill Duce Trump keep making these apparently awful hiring decisions that so many of his personnel "can't perform," as you yourself aver?

How specifically was Tillerson incorrect on an issue or not performing? I say you don't know the first thing about what you're going on about. it's the usual right wing base gibberish, ignorance and illogic.

Well, it is understandable that you are experiencing a rise in bile.

A little Lamb in Pennsylvania has thrown Trump for a loop.

Take your hostilities elsewhere.

Nobody wants to deal with the splatter when you bust a gut.

So you try to reply, non-responsibly, with 2 dated

articles about 44, with links that don't work. While

you again run away from Cadet Bones Spurs' many

Presidential blunders and crappy staffing choices.

Why can't you support Donnie's lousy decisions?

They perp-walked his "body man" put of the W. H.

It is getting worst for the desperate, failing Trump as showing all failing sadness in his foreign policy, by coming up with Pompeo who is worst to show more those to be worsening .
