According to this morning's news, the incoming Trump administration's transition representatives have not yet made contact with anyone in the Pentagon. The president-elect has had phone calls with Chinese and Russian leaders, and will be sitting down today with the Prime Minister of Japan ... all without prior discussion of relevant issues with anyone in the State Department.
I'm not sure we're off to a good start. But then, why worry? After all, Mr Trump has already told us he knows more than anyone else, he's his own best advisor, and only he can fix all our problems.
