Excellent point. No. As you say, it's also lying to the people. What a jerk. But what do you expect from a Trump appointee? Everyone except one of his brainwashed, gullible disciples can see he appointed a bunch of low life crooks, or people who rapidly became so disgusted with him they quit, leaving us with the low life crooks.
If Trump had been honest, which he seldom if ever is, he would have told us that if we thought we had a swamp now, wait until you see what kind of swamp HE would create.
