A Donald Trump administration is coming, even as post-election rebellious demonstrations continue, but observations indicate Americans who felt the wayward boot of the Washington elites on their throats can expect the man who made lots of money in the private sector to achieve “big league” change now.
Trump’s administrative appointments are his own, of course, but voters for and against him have seen the amazing people surrounding and supporting him, and those include an innovative gay man, (Peter Thiel), a calm but passionate black neurosurgeon (Ben Carson), and the politically savvy woman who brought Trump forward and won the battle for the office of the president (Kellyanne Conway).
Peter Thiel, the tech-savvy innovator from America’s private sector, has just been tapped to officially join Trump’s inner circle. The New York Times used its own Twitter account to announce the possible new work ahead for Thiel.

As Thiel was “the only prominent Silicon Valley investor to back Trump,” he does seem to have the insight necessary to help Trump achieve his goals for this nation.
As for the astoundingly successful Kellyanne Conway, there was this social media tweet of congratulations.

Trump apparently has made an offer for a position to Conway, according to Bruce Golding’s post over at the New York Post, and back in July, there were very strong words of support for her posted on the Trump-Pence website from Trump.
“Kellyanne is a tremendous asset to our rapidly-expanding campaign team. She is a data and messaging expert and terrific on TV. It is great to have her on board.”
Of course, the promises are big from the businessman/president-elect. As pointed out from his website, Trump appointments must likely be made to achieve these goals listed in his “100-day action plan.”
Trump’s appointments must help him to “clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC.” Actions Trump aims to take include “a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated,” as well as “a five-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.”
Add to this his other goals to institute “a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government” and “a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections,” and perhaps voters can witness the beginning of an end to institutional corruption in their government.
Additionally, a Trump administration appointment to Dr. Ben Carson might be a very good thing as well for America. Dr. Carson might bring a bit of healing to the administration, as previously it was noted in the Conservative Tribune that the neurosurgeon endorsed Trump after making a decision to “bury the hatchet” with their political differences during the primary season.
Dr. Carson was quoted in a Fox Business report mentioned by the Conservative Tribune writer, and he likely moved Trump into the decision to meet with voters hurting in Detroit this year, as mentioned here at the Inquisitr.
“We move on because it’s not about me. It’s not about Mr. Trump. It’s about America. And this is what we have to be thinking about.”
As Trump continues to select and surround himself with advisers for his administration, the brash billionaire from the private sector may bring new ideas to truly improve government at the national level in America and bring real innovation and achieve the change voters dream of having to improve their own lives and stagnant job opportunities.
Peggy Noonan, writing for the Wall Street Journal, recently wrote this about the election and warned Trump as he pivots from campaign mode into setting up his administration.
“The previous 16 months were, for the Trump campaign, the victory project. What has to begin now is the reassurance project. The Democratic Party is in shock but will soon recover. Mainstream media, tired and taken aback, will reorient soon. Having targeted Mr. Trump in the campaign, they won’t be letting up now.”
Noonan also believes that Trump “should make a handful of appointments quickly, briskly, with an initial emphasis on old hands and known quantities.”
While Noonan advises Trump to include “accomplished Washington figures,” perhaps he should consider job offers to individuals who have shown they are not part of the “group think” that made America stagnant and a place of woe for millions.
In Detroit, per the previous quote from the Inquisitr story mentioned above, Trump got it exactly right many believed when he said this.
“Our nation is too divided. We talk past each other, not to each other, and those who seek office do not do enough to step into the community and learn what is going on.”
Trump administration appointments, it is hoped, will heal the divisions and accomplish much for ordinary, forgotten citizens who have reached the end of their own ropes and have dangled precariously for years while neither political party ever seemed to improve things, despite their promises.
