President Trump’s cabinet of anti-secretaries serve the rich and connected, not you | #Education

President Donald Trump has slashed regulations with little heed for the environment, making it an unsafer world for all of us, and appointed cabinet heads who do what they can for the rich and the powerful, but not for us:

Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, a former oil lobbyist who likes drilling on public lands.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who supports public charter schools over regular public schools. She can afford to send her kids to private schools; can you?

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Sen. Mitch McConnell’s wife. Her family runs an international shipping company.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur L. Ross Jr., “King of Bankruptcy,” who built new companies from assets of defaulted ones.

Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia, who fought worker protections as a corporate lawyer.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, who Politico reported in 2017 “has long mixed personal and political business to benefit his friends and business associates.”

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, who used language promoting fetal personhood.

The next president will have to undo many things Trump has done. Think carefully before voting.
