Trump rewards his pals and consolidators with plumb poles as he exits the gate

As time is running out for his presidency, Donald Trump has rewarded some of his top fundraisers with confident federal positions that will outlast his tenure alone.

The White House announced Thursday that Trump had appointed lobbyist Brian Ballard to the board of directors of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and Jeff Miller, also a leading lobbyist, to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.

Both men were major fundraisers for the president’s re-election. Miller reported that he “bundled” more than $ 3.5 million for Trump Victory, the joint fundraising account that housed the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee field operation. Ballard has raised nearly $ 600,000 for Trump Victory.
