The departure of state department careerists is alarming. These are men and women who have worked for both Republican and Democrat administrations. The fact that these people who have dedicated their careers to the State Department have decided to quit speaks volumes about the type of State Department we are going to have for the next 4 years.

I hope that Trump is a great president and that he does good things for the country. I also hope that we will curb climate change before it’s too late.

I hope Elon Musk can have a positive effect on Trump.

Hopes are often different from reality.
