Political appointments by Donald Trump

This is a list of political appointments of current officeholders made by the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump.

Links to lists of announced positions from which candidates have withdrawn or appointees who have resigned or have been terminated, as well as lists of appointments to other independent agencies and of holdovers from previous administrations are below.

There are 1,212 presidential appointments which require confirmation by the U.S. Senate and 353 presidential appointments which do not require confirmation.[1] The Washington Post has identified 705 key positions requiring U.S. Senate confirmation. As of September 7, 2018, 364 of Trump's nominees have been confirmed for those key positions, 181 are awaiting confirmation, and 7 have been announced but not yet formally nominated.[2]

All members of the Cabinet require the advice and consent of the United States Senate following appointment by the President prior to taking office. The Vice Presidency is exceptional in that the position requires election to office pursuant to the United States Constitution. Although some are afforded Cabinet-level rank, non-cabinet members within the Executive Office of the President, such as White House Chief of Staff, National Security Advisor, and White House Press Secretary, do not hold constitutionally created positions and most do not require Senate confirmation for appointment.

AnalysisEdit

Certain news organizations, such as Politico and Newsweek, called Trump's incomplete cabinet a "conservative dream team"[3] or "the most conservative cabinet [in United States history]."[4] On the other hand, The Wall Street Journal stated that "it's nearly impossible to identify a clear ideological bent in the incoming president's" cabinet nominations.[5] The Wall Street Journal also stated that Trump's nominations signaled a pro-deregulation administration policy.[6]

Among Donald Trump's appointments there have been several former Goldman Sachs employees, such as Steven Mnuchin, Steven Bannon, and Gary Cohn, as well as several generals, such as Michael T. Flynn, James Mattis, and John F. Kelly. These appointments have generated some criticism, including allegations of violations of the principle of civilian control of the military and allegations of regulatory capture.[7][8] The Democratic senator from Missouri, Claire McCaskill, has criticized Donald Trump's cabinet stating; "I call it the three 'G' Cabinet: Goldman, generals and gazillionaires."[9]

On January 18, two days before Trump's inauguration, it was reported that he had by then nominated only 28 people to fill 690 positions requiring Senate confirmation.[10] In particular, there had been no nominations below the Cabinet level for the departments of State or Defense, and the staff for the National Security Council was incomplete, while none of the NSC leadership had any NSC experience.[11]

On February 28, 2017, Trump announced he did not intend on filling many of the numerous governmental positions that were still vacant, as he considered them unnecessary.[12] According to CNN on February 25, nearly 2,000 vacant governmental positions existed.[13]
