What is actually reasonable about this Trump's choice? Or any of his choices?

Yes, definitely someone who knows her business; however, I'm always a bit concerned about private 'consultants' and their companies in these roles. Too much conflict of interest sometimes. She heads up Tier Tech International and LEG Inc.
