Trump at his Florida rally last week; “We stared down the unholy alliance of Lobbyist’s and Donner’s and special interest that made a living of bleeding our country dry”.
Yeah right. You stared them down and then gave them jobs.
EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler – former coal Lobbyist
HHS Secretary Alex Azar – former pharmaceutical Lobbyist
Interior Secretary David Bernhardt – former oil industry Lobbyist
Acting Defense Secretary Designate Mark Esper – former defense industry Lobbyist
Not to mention the 322 former Lobbyist’s who occupy many top positions in various departments of the federal government. Now to be fair, both the Clinton and Bush 43 administrations still hold the record for the number of Lobbyist’s employed. However their total was for 8 year administrations. After 2 1/2 years Trump is on track to match their numbers.
