President-elect Trump has filled two cabinet positions and we think it’s a good time to put out our own list of ideal cabinet choices. We aren’t going to hit every position because honestly a lot of these positions are all but pointless. Energy Secretary…we’re looking at you.
Secretary of State: Stephen M. Walt. Walt is a neo-realist, professor at Harvard, and writer for ForeignPolicy.com. Many of his positions have been echoed by Trump during the campaign.
Secretary of Treasury: Jeb Hensarling “Economic growth for all, bank bailouts for none.” Bonus: he’s never worked for Goldman Sachs.
Secretary of Defense: William S. Lind – With 4G warfare exploding all over the world, it would be wise to put the guy who invented the term in charge.
Attorney General: Mike Lee. This is more of a process of elimination pick. Rudy and Christie are not good options. That leaves a lot of scrambling to find a good fit.
Secretary of the Interior: Harrold G. Hamm. “President Trump will release America’s pent-up energy potential, get rid of foreign oil, trash punitive regulations, create millions of jobs, and develop our most strategic geopolitical weapon: crude oil.” Preach, Preacher.
Secretary of Agriculture: Joel Salatin. “I am a Christian-Libertarian-Capitalist-Environmentalist-Lunatic.” We need radical new leadership in Agriculture. That means we need a radical new leader. Grass fed beef is still crap though, Joel.
Health and Human Services: Ben Carson. Tearing down Obamacare is all that matters. His passion about this is what thrust him into the spotlight to begin with. Turn him loose on it.
Homeland Security: Jeff Sessions. No explanation required. Roll Tide.
