Trump says he has full confidence in Sessions US President Donald J. Trump (C), along with Secretary of Defense James Mattis (R) and Navy personnel, rides an elevator to the flight deck of the Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier after speaking to sailors in Newport News, Virginia, USA. EFE

The first time I met Gen. David Petraeus, he said something that surprised me. It was the early days of the Iraq War and, while things were not going well, he had directed his region in the north skillfully and effectively. I asked him whether he wished he had more troops. Petraeus was too politically savvy to criticize the Donald Rumsfeld “light footprint” strategy, so he deflected the question, answering it a different way. “I wish we had more Foreign Service officers, aid professionals and other kinds of non-military specialists,” he said.

The New Heads of the “White” House

With wavering positions on a variety of topics, Trump's cabinet nominees may be the clearest picture we get of what a Trump presidency may look like. Largely rich, white, and male with no Latino in sight, the white house will certainly uphold the title.
