Donald Trump Searches for Replacements to Fill White House Posts

Washington, February 21 (RHC)-- The New York Times is reporting that Donald Trump is "struggling" not only to fill his Cabinet -- with six members still unconfirmed -- but also to fill the important positions of deputy secretary, under secretaries and assistant secretaries for most agencies. 

The Times reports one of the key barriers is that Trump has been vetoing new people -- and even firing existing officials -- who have been at all critical of him.  Recently, Craig Deare, the recently appointed head of the National Security Council’s Western Hemisphere division, was fired and marched out of his office, less than 24 hours after Deare criticized Trump’s policies on Latin America during a private talk at the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.  

The newspaper reports that Deare’s firing is in addition to six top officials within the State Department who have been fired recently over concerns about loyalty.
