‘You’re Putting a Whole Bunch of Critters in’ the Swamp: Tapper Grills Trump Adviser on Cabinet (Mediaite)

One of President-elect Donald Trump’s most resonating messages towards the end of his campaign was his promise to “Drain the Swamp,” claiming he would rid Washington of the political and financial insiders. However, three weeks after he surprisingly won on Election Night, many of Trump’s picks to fill out his administration have largely consisted of those he railed against.

Speaking to Trump adviser Jason Miller, CNN host Jake Tapper brought this up, specifically in regards to the recent announcement that former Goldman Sachs banker Steve Mnuchin would be Secretary of Treasury.

Tapper wanted to know how Trump could resolve his campaign messaging with his actions now. After Miller praised the choices of Trump so far, Tapper grilled him on how it strays afar from what he said on the trail
