This week, over on the Election Central Web site we begin to examine some of the top advisor picks made by President-elect Donald Trump.

On Friday, President-elect Donald Trump appointed three new members of his cabinet, bringing the total to five as of the weekend. Retired General Mike Flynn has been appointed to the post of National Security Advisor. For Attorney General, Trump has selected Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. And for the Director of the CIA, Trump has appointed Kansas Representative Mike Pompeo. These are in addition to Trump’s earlier picks: Reince Priebus for Chief of Staff, and Stephen Bannon for Chief Strategist and Senior Counsel. While they come from different careers and backgrounds, the five appointees share several things in common: all are men; all showed great loyalty to Trump throughout his campaign; and all have already received strong criticism from Democrats.
