From NBC News’ negative prediction of Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominations:
There have been questions about racism, calls for probes of insider trading, and implications of sympathy for ruthless dictators.
And the confirmation hearings for Donald Trump’s Cabinet picks haven’t even started yet.
Trump may face the rockiest path of any of his recent predecessors in filling his Cabinet. Democrats in Congress are already threatening to slow-walk confirmation proceedings if nominees don’t turn over background information and financial disclosures on time. And they’ve identified a hefty chunk of the Cabinet designees – eight – as prime targets for aggressive questioning.
