Swamps are hard to drain.

Trump’s pledge to “drain the swamp” appears headed for the same fate as President Obama‘s promise eight years ago to end the reign of the special interests and “end the game-playing” in D.C.
In all corners of his transition team and his planned executive branch, President-elect Trump is placing lobbyists and Wall Street insiders. He’s not draining the swamp — he’s hiring the swamp creatures.
Steve Mnuchin was a Goldman Sachs banker who started his own investment firm seeded with money from George Soros. He then made huge profits by buying a failed bank off the government with help from a special tweak by regulators.
They did get rid of Chris Christie though.That was a move in the right direction.
