    The civil service in the US is highly political.

    And Mexico has just cancelled it's meeting with Trump.

    Not true in this case. This senior management team weren't put in place by Obama. So they aren't necessarily Democrats.

    I see you don't keep up with thread links.

    The US State Department is pretty left-wing by US standards.

    Maybe Trump will quite welcome a clear out, and use the opportunity to appoint a new management team (if he is entitled to).

    +1. It's the people who know how to actually get anything done. Which levers to pull, etc. Fairly important. Like a factory floor where all the mechanics quit.
