Not even a token Latino

    Trumps cabinet is mostly white men but there are white women also. At least a token black. Latino, not a chance. Not representing the population either. Hopefully many will open their eyes and notice the persons deemed worthy and able versus the neither worthy or able.

    Maybe he contacted some Latinos and they turned him down. After all the disparaging remarks he has made about Latinos, it would not be surprising if they turned him down. On the other hand as Trump spokesperson Sean Spicer said:

    “I think that when you look at the totality at his administration — the people that he’s talked to, the people that he’s met with, the people that he’s appointing — you see a president who’s committed to uniting this country, who’s bringing the best and brightest together. Look at the cabinet — Elaine Chao, Dr. Ben Carson, Nikki Haley, the first Indian-American.”

    But no Latinos in his "best and brightest" list? But Rick Perry is?

    Sarcasm ? He started by identifying Mexicans immigrants as the evil, illegal, rapists that we're stealing jobs. Therefore it was implied they had to be stopped. Latinos are 17% of our population. Dismissing and demeaning them is sad. In a trade, he won. For what that's worth. Much negativity underlying this man.

    Carson won't last long; he's too stupid for that job. It is quite an difference plucking "babies" apart versus leading an awful large group of people with total different skills. I guess Trump puts him there to be able to fire the guy, in order to prove "black's are no good for nothing" as an"racist" which he is.

    Interesting criticism from a formerly loyal Republican.
