Trump’s Cabinet picks aren’t standing by some of his controversial opinions — or even discussing them – Los Angeles Times

With the Senate having held confirmation hearings for seven of the incoming administration’s  choices for top positions, a clear pattern has begun to emerge — prospective Cabinet members have carefully walked away from some of President-elect Donald Trump’s more controversial promises.

Trump’s views on global warming and the potential usefulness of building a wall along the Mexican border also drew skepticism.
