This is not an insignificant post in an administration that plans to spend trillions on infrastructure.
This is a major league crony deal.
Notes The Washington Post:
In naming a former cabinet member, who has been married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell since 1993, Trump selected another Washington insider after campaigning on a promise to “drain the swamp” of the influences that he said permeate the capital.Another punch to the stomach of Libertarians for Trump. But wait until the wars come.
