You or Mycroft... are you impressed with Trump's lifetime record of discernment, his ability to read other people and
decide whether to invest in them by associating his name and reputation with theirs, IOW, putting his trust in them?
Just consider Trump's choices of attorneys
, cabinet picks, Flynn, and his recent endorsements of Orban of Hungary and of these G.O.P. candidates.
