DemDaily: Cabinet Update!
December 1, 2016
The 115th Congress will be sworn in January 3rd and the first order of business will be Confirmation Hearings for the Cabinet.
The Senate will have less than three weeks to confirm the government's top posts if the Trump Administration is to be prepared for Inauguration Day - Tuesday, January 20th - when the official transition period ends and all 4,000 Obama "political" appointees tender their resignations.
The Cabinet includes the Vice President and the heads of 15 executive departments, who are the senior-most administration officials, and the next in line in succession to the President after the Vice President, the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate.
Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency
Director, Office of Management & Budget
Ambassador, US Trade Representative
Ambassador, US Mission to the United Nations
Chair, Council of Economic Advisors
Administrator, Small Business Administration
Despite Trump's populist pitch that he will be a voice for the blue collar worker and downtrodden, all of his official nominees are millionaires.
"If I am elected president, I will end the special interest monopoly in Washington ... Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you the American people." - President Elect Trump
