The Transition So Far: Splendid!

Start

Beginning with the joint appointment of Reince Priebus as chief of staff and Steve Bannon as chief “strategist,” the Trump administration has been signaling two things:

1) He’s not going to abandon the outsiders who voted him into office, no matter how much stuff the media makes up about them, and 2) it’s going to include establishment full-spectrum conservatives (especially those who value the life issue).

Today’s announcement of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as Attorney General is another great indicator. The media had tried to portray this as a race between pro-choice Rudy Giuliani and Chris Christie (whose record on religious liberty, parental rights, and judicial appointments leaves a lot to be desired).

Behind the scenes insiders told me it was a race between Sessions and Christie. With Christie removed from the transition team and Rudy taking himself out of the race, the path for Sen. Sessions to run the president’s legal team was cleared.

As APP’s president Frank Cannon said:

On life, education, religious freedom, sound money — really, across the board — Senator Jeff Sessions has proven himself to be an advocate for the Constitution and for the hard-working people of this great nation. We expect he will do an excellent job as Attorney General.

Through the quality of the people he is bringing on board, President-elect Donald Trump is demonstrating, in quick order, that he intends to end business as usual in Washington and truly make America great again. We applaud this appointment and look forward to Donald Trump’s presidency.

Donald Trump is dancing with the girl that brung him, and conservatives are dancing in the streets.
