Trump taps Peter Thiel to join presidential transition team - Libertarian

Venture capitalist Peter Thiel will join President-Elect Donald Trump’s transition team, a move that solidifies the Facebook Inc. board member’s power and could help Silicon Valley have a say in the next administration. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-11-11/peter-thiel-joins-trump-s-presidential-transition-team

"Thiel’s title and exact role are still being etched out, but the Facebook board member will have a hand in vetting of presidential appointments and help select which of Trump’s campaign promises should become policies...

“Just as much as it’s about making America great, Trump’s agenda is about making America a normal country,” Thiel said at the National Press Club on Halloween. “A normal country doesn’t have a half-trillion-dollar trade deficit. A normal country doesn’t fight five simultaneous undeclared wars. In a normal country, the government actually does its job.”
