    Buffett Supports Trump on Cabinet Picks ‘Overwhelmingly’

    by Amanda L Gordon and Noah Buhayar
    January 19, 2017

    Warren Buffett said he “overwhelmingly” supports President-elect Donald Trump’s choices for cabinet positions as the incoming commander-in-chief’s selections face confirmation hearings in the U.S. Senate.

    “I feel that way no matter who is president,” the billionaire Berkshire Hathaway Inc. chairman and chief executive officer said Thursday in New York at the premiere of a documentary about his life. “The CEO -- which I am -- should have the ability to pick people that help you run a place.”

    Buffett, 86, backed Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, stumping for her in Omaha, Nebraska, and headlining fundraisers.

    Sounds like he doesn't care one way or the other. With his finances one place is as good as the other and he'll come out with a billion or so more than he has today.

    Then an other way to look at it, most of the Cabinet are old cronies.

      As R. Crumb's Mr. Natural used to say, "Twas ever thus."
      President Trump's decision to pick people whose qualifications and abilities are known to him is in keeping with any previous administration.

        The difference is Trump knows top-notch people.
        Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                Unlike most anti_Trumpers... Buffet realizes that Clinton lost...

                I think Buffet is probably familiar with Wilbur Ross and Steve Mnuchin... And this is probably driving his approval of Trump's cabinet.
