Apparently Donald Trump likes to pick people for his cabinet that are in his own image. The selection of an Exxon CEO will have grave repercussions. Especially someone who has ties to Russian dictator Putin. Then there is the question of the conflict of interest. Will he divest himself from the company? Already the press had been hounding Trump for the conflicts tied to his business interests while he is president.
Finally, the stupidity of appointing people with no experience while never having political experience is mindboggling.
