Barletta Discusses Labor Secretary Position with Trump

lou-barletta-portrait-680x1024It appeared to all be falling into place.

Congressman Lou Barletta, who was an early endorser of Donald Trump, sits on the House Transportation Committee and is a member of his transition team, was being talked about as a possible Secretary of Transportation.

Then this morning, just hours before Rep. Barletta was set to meet with the President-Elect, we learned that a decision was coming soon.

The Secretary of Transportation was going to be…Elaine Chao. Chao served in the George W. Bush Administration as Secretary of Labor, the only cabinet member to last all eight years. She was also Deputy Secretary of Transportation in the George H.W. Bush Administration. Finally, she is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Despite the seeming disappoint, though, Congressman Barletta was unfazed. Perhaps because he has another position in mind.

    I wish to express my admiration for your kindness supporting folks that really need guidance on this important idea. Your special commitment to passing the message up and down appeared to be particularly invaluable and has consistently encouraged others just like me to reach their dreams. Your new interesting instruction can mean much a person like me and even more to my office workers. Best wishes; from all of us.

    Lou Barletta would just love dealing with the Hispanics as head of Labor Dept. Maybe have his own Deportation squad?

    Really just goes to show you that Trump isn’t looking for expertise; he’s looking for loyalists.

    Especially ironic considering his dismal treatment of organized labor.
