Another sign he is going to fill his administration with theocrats, Wall Street/Corporate execs/lobbyists, and American Dominionists.

Lots of breaking with tradition, butI guess it's a president-elects choice to do what he wants. Sadly, even the man who's been the inaugural parade announcer for 6 decades has been replaced by a Trump supporter. Sure the original guy is 89, but sounds like he had hoped to do one more. I saw him interviewed and he said his favorite times were when Reagan and Kennedy were elected, so maybe just as well not to end on a Trump note.

This certainly will not be a "normal" presidency.
We have a President whose overseas (and domestic) properties are symbols of him and his presidency. His name is on these buildings and other properties and I can't help but wonder if these are in turn going to become de-facto embassies of his administration, and what is going to happen when one of these places is picked for a mass protest or a terrorist attack?

100% right...nothing about this next presidency will be normal. From his lack of knowledge OR interest in foreign affairs OR protocol....to Trump's ridiculous early AM revenge tweets. There's not one thing presidential or dignified about him.

Also, agreed...all those buildings emblazoned with the Trump logos could very well be security problems in the future which, of course, have the possibility of tax payer monies to deal with security concerns. They shouldn't be, but since he's already bilked the people NYC out of millions of dollars just for security for Trump Tower...who knows.
