Tough Time Building His Cabinet

So far, Trump has had a hell of time getting his cabinet appointees confirmed by the Senate. It’s probably fair to say that there’s not a single president in U.S. history that has faced so much opposition to his cabinet nominations. Today, Vice-President Pence had to fill his role as president of the Senate and break a tie in order to get Betsy DeVos confirmed as Secretary of Education. DeVos has faced a great deal of opposition, particularly from those in the education field.

If y0u don’t know much about DeVos, here’s a YouTube video of her being grilled by Bernie Sanders.

Trumps First Week…..Good or Bad??

Good or Bad???

Sooo, Donald Trump has his first week as 45th President of the United States in the books. So, how did it go? Well, I’m going to let you decide because there are plenty of people that say it went well, while many others disagree.

For the good….

I found a couple of videos on YouTube that highlight everything that happened in the first week. I don’t think these videos fall under “creative commons”, so I’m not going to post them here, but I will provide the links. Click here for some information that may convince you it was a good week.

Now for the bad….

There’s no shortage of people that think Donald’s first week as POTUS was disastrous. I disagree with them, however, I do think it’s important to see both sides of the argument. With that in mind, here’s a good video to check out.

I hope these links were helpful!!! See you tomorrow!!

General James Mattis

So far, Trump has only been in the oval office for a few days. However, I am very excited about some of the people that he is surrounding himself with. One of his more notable appointments was General James Mattis as Secretary of Defense. Gen. Mattis has served a very distinguished career and I think he’s going to do an excellent job. I hope Trump will heed his advice more that Obama did.

If you aren’t too familiar with Gen. Mattis, here’s an interesting video. You can also watch the video on YouTube.

Enjoy!!
