MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is a step ahead of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
While Clinton is busy putting together her transition team in preparation for her impending move into The White House, Trump is already naming members of his cabinet. His first appointee? Former Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann.
Trump named the Tea Party darling his Secretary of State.
Bachmann has confirmed the appointment telling reporters that Trump has his ear on foreign policy.
In a Minnesota fundraiser for Trump on Saturday, Bachmann revealed that she is advising the Republican candidate on foreign policy.
The news came as huge disappointment for former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin who had desperately wanted the State Secretary job. Among Palin’s foreign policy expertise is the fact that she can see Russia from her backyard.
