Weekly Primer: Industry Insiders, Former Lobbyists Make Cabinet Room Debut

When President Donald Trump convened his Cabinet for a meeting Wednesday, there were a few new faces around the table: Sitting to the President’s left was Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan; on the President’s right, acting Interior Secretary David Bernhardt.
