The average Trump voter would probably find it unbelievable that two months into the presidency they elected to replace Barack Obama’s, the government is still almost entirely in the hands of Obama's appointees.
Even more troubling are the elevation of some of the most problematic of those holdovers to influential positions in the Donald J. Trump administration.
Take, for example, Sahar Nowrouzzadeh who is being put in charge of Iran policy in President Trump’s State Department. He formerly lobbied for Iran and then became a leading architect of the Iran nuclear deal Candidate Trump properly derided.
Seasoned Washington, D.C. observers know that, in government, people are policy.
President Trump’s administration will be unable to deliver on his promised policy changes if he continues to rely on people who not only opposed him, but were responsible for the very policies he seeks to change.
