The Trump cabinet is the first in thirty years — President Reagan through President Obama — without a single Latino.
"This is a disaster and setback for the country," Arturo Vargas, the executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected And Appointed Officials (NALEO) told the Associated Press last week. "The next time a president convenes his Cabinet there will be no Latino perspective."
This is not about being politically correct.
The absence of Latinos at the White House comes as President Trump is already at odds with the nation’s largest minority group, and especially with people from Mexico.
