And the fact that you think any politician, Trump or otherwise, appoints anyone to any position because of competence, or for a reason other than loyalty is laugh out loud funny.  

Read Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin, and get back to us.

Not only were they competent, they all disliked Lincoln immensely.  

Here's a list of "across party line" appointments by both Republican and Democratic Presidents in case you need more data.  Click.....
