Washington( CNN) President Donald Trump will nominate former members of Congress Scott Garrett and Spencer Bachus to two vacant points at the US Export-Import Bank — an entity Trump has in the past called “excess baggage” and agreed with reactionaries on shutting down.
Garrett would fill the responsibilities of Ex-Im president for a four-year term. In the past, Garrett was openly critical
of the Ex-Im Bank, tweeting
in 2015: “I resisted the House’s vote to reauthorize the corporate welfare program known as the Ex-Im Bank. #CronyCapitalism. ”
Garrett served as a New Jersey Republican congressman from 2003 to 2015 and was a country representative for 12 times prior. He was one of the nine founding members of the House Freedom Caucus.
