“I do decline that there’s not one certified Hispanic that can be in his Cabinet,” Navarro informed CNN’s Anderson Cooper on “AC360.”
Trump’s last Cabinet choice of previous Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue to work as farming secretary sealed in an inaugural Cabinet without any Latino representation.
Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer protected the President-elect’s Cabinet and his dedication to variety.
“What you’re seeing and you’re going to continue to see not simply through the Cabinet however through the whole thing is a variety in gender, variety in believing variety of ideology,” Spicer stated at a press conference Thursday. “It’s not practically skin color or ethnic heritage, however you take a look at the totality of this Cabinet– an Indian-American, an African-American, an Asian-American, it’s about a great deal of things.”
Spicer argued that the No. 1 issue for Americans is Trump employing the very best and brightest, which Navarro took offense to.
“Do not inform me that Latinos are 17 percent of the United States and they are not amongst us finest and brightest,” Navarro stated.
