    I don't care that they're rich. I care that these people are responsible for most of the problems we've experienced throughout the years and are on the receiving end up large corporate bailouts and laws designed to give them tax breaks while screwing everybody else over. They know they won't be in these positions forever, might as well change things to make themselves even more better off.

    A poor person would not know how to balance a national budget! A rich guy who is used to handling a lot of money would be far more experienced and qualified! And I am poor! I`ve taken no offence by this comment of Trumps. Its just common sense.

    His thoughts are totally stupid. Most of the people in his "cabinet" were born into wealth and never really knew the true struggle that us regular citizens endure daily. Those are people out of touch with the reality that we are too familiar with. If he actually felt that way, then he should have hired people who earned their wealth the old fashioned way. This is basically just pay-to-play.

    Our government is supposed to be for the people, by the people. It's NOT a corporation meant for profit!! It's meant to benefit our citizens, NOT your bottom line!

    Well if they do bad things in their position, at least he thinks that it won't be because they can be bought out and need the money...like most of the current "swamp"...it will be because they are just "bad" people in general..so I think he is placing people he thinks are "good" people in general and hoping the evil that $$$ corrupts is eliminated!!

    I am so sick of the FAKE NEWS! Common sense tells you one thing! If you can't make it in America, you can't make in ANYWHERE! So instead of hiring a rich SUCCESSFUL person to handle the economy, you get a POOR UNSUCCESSFUL ONE.

    I don't think these people work for free. If they don't care about money pay more taxes like every American.

    No they are people who are rich and could careless about the poor and their problems because at the end of the day why do they care about problems that don't affect them
