President Trump has understandably refused to hire so-called “Never- Trumpers.” They are prominent, mostly national security professionals who publicly – and scathingly – declared during the 2016 election their unalterable opposition to him.
Yet, Mr. Trump’s administration continues to employ, and even promote people, from his opposition’s team. For example, a promotion is reportedly in the offing for top State Department official Brian Hook who organized the group that put out the Never-Trump letter. Andrea Hall, a protégé of the notorious Obama propagandist Ben Rhodes, is said to be his replacement. And at least three out of four of the nation’s top intelligence officers are close allies of the ultimate Never-Trumper, former CIA Director John Brennan – with yet another possibly getting the intelligence portfolio at the National Security Council.
President Trump recently kept several insubordinate subordinates from holding key jobs. He mustn’t stop now.
