Trump Cabinet excites his voters: 'We have to trust him'
As each Cabinet announcement draws fresh criticism of Donald Trump's latest appointees, many Americans who voted for him say the president-elect is doing what he promised to do: draining the swamp.
And they're excited.
To them, the idea of a defense secretary nicknamed "Mad Dog" is bliss. They rejoice in an energy secretary who once said he would eliminate the Department of Energy. And while some Trump supporters balk at ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson's close ties with Russia's Vladimir Putin, they say they will trust Trump's judgment about his secretary of state nominee.
Some Cabinet choices have been called into question for their lack of experience or their exceptional wealth. But many Trump voters say the affluence of his Cabinet picks is an advantage, not a liability.
