So what’s up this? Trump hires Mitch McConnell’s wife?
from the Blaze:
Throughout the final weeks of his presidential campaign, Donald Trump ran on a promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C. But on Tuesday, the president-elect seemed to ditch at least part of his commitment.
Sources with Trump’s transition team revealed Tuesday that he had selected Elaine Chao, wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), to be his transportation secretary.
Chao, who served eight years as labor secretary under President George W. Bush, was the first Asian-American woman to hold a presidential Cabinet position, according to Politico.
Chao also served on Trump’s Asian Pacific American Advisory Council during the campaign.
The Trump transition team is expected to formally announce Chao as the next transportation secretary Tuesday afternoon.
