Krauthammer: Trump's Cabinet Picks Not Consistent With His Campaign Rhetoric
On "Special Report" tonight, Charles Krauthammer said that there hasn't been consistency between Trump's campaign rhetoric and his cabinet appointments.
Krauthammer noted that Goldman Sachs was a common "whipping boy" for Trump on the campaign trail, yet he nominated former Goldman partner Steven Mnuchin to be his treasury secretary and he is reportedly considering Goldman president and chief operating officer Gary Cohn for director of the White House National Economic Council.
"There isn't a lot of consistency between the campaign rhetoric and the appointments," Krauthammer said.
Krauthammer added, however, that he doesn't believe Trump cares about that, and the president-elect actually doesn't need to.
"People are going to judge him by how he does, not by how consistent what he does now is with the rhetoric in the campaign," Krauthammer said.
He pointed out that Trump has "jettisoned" a lot of the things he said during the campaign, and that's a good thing.
"This is all going to depend on who he feels the most comfortable with and who are the best people."
