President Elect Donald Trump Administration
 
 
 
 
Those Who Will Lead Us

I thought it might be interesting to see the kind of administration president elect Donald Trump is putting together. Pretty obvious to say the least.

Picture - The oval office of The White House.

 I look to the next four years with a sense of foreboding, but still trying to keep a positive outlook that those around and advising "The Donald" will guide him through a presidency that will be fair for all of the people of this great country, not only for white and wealthy Americans. Unfortunately the Trump administration picks point to the contrary.

Each of the following folks, and their positions on a variety of issues, will be analyzed and graded. Depending on the outcome of the analyses, each will receive an English Global Group, EGG, award....a GOOD EGG AWARD or a BAD EGG AWARD.
GOOD EGG AWARD - This award is based on contributions to society, unbiased and fair views towards all people including minorities, environmental protection, reduction in weapons both domestically and internationally, and a basic humanitarian attitude.
BAD EGG AWARD - This award is based on attempts to segregate society, biased views toward any group, desire to deregulate environmental protections, promoting gun ownership and an increase in nuclear arms, extreme religious views, and an attitude based on discrimination and hate.
Trump Administration

The following 27 picks for the Trump team, as of December 2016, will be representing the people of the United States of America for the next four years. Hopefully the outcome is not as bad as it already looks. All indications point to a general policy of government deregulation, greatly reduced environmental protections, a huge reduction in spending for education and social services, and an arrogant, and even an antagonistic, approach to international relations. In addition, wasting more money on building nuclear weapons which will hopefully never be used, and a dramatic increase in gun ownership thanks to the very outdated, poorly written, and strongly supported second amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. I can only hope that Trump is not busy tweeting when he has his finger on, and accidentally pushes, that nuke button.
