Letter: Trump's team will be smart, experienced

David H. Burke

I’ve been for Donald Trump for president from day one. My second choice for president was either Ben Carson or Ted Cruz, in that order. Since I liked Trump, I took some heat; rolling of eyes, are you serious, but not so much when you came right down to it.

Looking to the future, I wondered who Trump might pick for his “team.” Here is my best guess: vice president, Jeff Sessions; Supreme Court judge, Ted Cruz; Chief of Staff, Newt Gingrich; Secretary of State, John Bolten; Attorney General, Chris Christie; Surgeon General & Health Care Benefits, Ben Carson; Homeland Security, Rudy Giuliani, Treasury Department, John Kasich; Head of CIA, CDR Gary Stubblefield, USN (Ret.); head of armed forces — open; Ambassador to the United Nations, Allen West.

These are my picks. However, watch out, as Trump will pick the best person for these jobs with experience and “smarts.” This will bring the country back from the brink and regain our leadership of the free world.
