Former Obama Adviser David Axelrod Defends Trump Transition Process

Former senior adviser to President Obama David Axelrod is defending President-elect Donald Trump’s transition process.

Lots of reasons to be concerned about @realDonaldTrump transition but the pace of announcements isn't one of them. That's not a fair shot.

We hadn't made any major appointments at this point in 2008. I don't remember being criticized for it. https://t.co/3yXvA8g6bL

Some members of the media and political pundits have described Trump’s transition as chaotic and lagging, but as the Washington Times’s Kelly Riddell notes, “According to a Fox News analysis, Mr. Trump is on track to name Cabinet members far earlier than most of his predecessors.”
