Donald trump became the President of the United States for more than two months ago. However, due to political disagreements, the Cabinet of Ministers until the end and not formed. Therefore, trump is forced to rely on the closest advisors and even his daughter Ivanka, which, as it became known on March 29, will enter his administration. Who is who in the team of trump, who influences his decisions and what kind of financial flows they control — special projects in RBC

After the inauguration of Donald trump most of the Ministers of the former Cabinet and administration officials have left their positions — both on their own, and as a result of the dismissal. At the same time, the process of approval by the Senate of new Ministers delayed by the end of March, after 70 days of the presidency of the trump, in posts approved 19 of 22 Cabinet members (excluding the Vice-President and head of the administration for which you do not need to solve senators). President trump blames the opposition Democrats of the Senate. In its decisions, it relies heavily on “inner circle” of advisors and approved of Ministers, with whom he had close friendships and business relationships.

As we evaluated

Part of the “inner circle” of the new US President and key ministries identified on the basis of publications The Telegraph and The Wall Street Journal, as well as using several criteria. Key among them was an old acquaintance with Donald trump and active participation in his campaign. In addition take into account, what are the positions taken by these people from the point of view of influence on foreign and domestic policy of the new administration and their role in the preparation of the most significant and discussed of decrees and laws.

Based on the budgets of the departments for 2017, prepared by the office of management and budget (OMB) the White house. However, the figures are largely conditional — not all information (for example, the budgets of the NSA, CIA, etc.) is disclosed.
