Trump’s appointment of several billionaires to cabinet raises questions – Xinhua | English.news.cn – As the brash businessman prepares to take office, he is busy putting together a cabinet that includes a few billionaires, including now former Exxon CEO and incoming secretary of state Rex Tillerson.

“I think there is some legitimate criticism about billionaires in the cabinet and their views of economic and business policies-especially regulatory protections, market mechanisms and transparency, etc,” Dan Mahaffee, an analyst with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, told Xinhua.

“But for the working class voter, it is worth noting that much of the anger isn’t directed at the wealthy per se, but at the professional and political classes… There is still respect for wealthy individuals, including Trump, because they are seen as successes in their fields,” he said.
