Palin: ‘I’m On The Other Side Of The World’ Amid The Trump Transition


Appearing on Breitbart News Daily, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin put a snowbank’s worth of cold water on any speculation that she might be part of the Trump administration.

“ … transition meetings are going on in New York, while I’m on the other side of the world,” she said in the interview.

Palin, who was one of the first big-name conservatives to line up in support of President-elect Donald Trump, has been mentioned in connection with the Department of the Interior and the Department of Energy. She was widely quoted in 2015 as saying she would like to be Secretary of Energy.

In her interview, she said she’s more interested in what Trump does than in getting a Washington job.

“I told Mr. Trump early, early on that I’m a believer that you don’t need a title, and you don’t need an office to make a difference,” she said. “I’m sincere. I told him that, and maybe he’s taking it absolutely literally, and I’m not offered a post – which, however it goes, is fine with me.”

She said her aim was to have Trump change America.

“I just voted for him to be the leader of the free world, our president, so I trust him to build a team that works for him,” she added.

Palin said Trump’s standards need to be high because his team has much to do.

“He’s going to have good people around him to change policy that has been shoved down America’s throat, unfairly and unconstitutionally, and that is going to do wonders for, not just our psyche, but our economy, practical things, and national security,” she said. “The things that Trump and his team will be able to undo, and then the things that he will be able to do, that he has promised to do — it’s all good.”

Palin said she was encouraged by what has been done since the Nov. 8 election. But she added that Trump has a lot of promises to keep.

“We expect no betrayals. No betrayals this time. America can’t take another political betrayal. So the things that have been promised, we voted for them, we expect them, and we are going to hold everybody’s feet to the fire — everybody on that team, the president included. And I say this with all due respect, but it’s going to be our job as voters to hold everybody accountable,” she said.

Palin said Trump’s first 100 days will be the first volley in wiping out eight years of bad government.

“What I expect in the first 100 days is implementation of policies that will undo this administration that had operated independent of the electorate, like with ObamaCare, and with the omnibus, and those things that Congress actually capitulated on, and allowed Barack Obama to do to us,” she said. “In the first 100 days, Trump can undo what the administration had done unconstitutionally.”

Palin noted that whatever comes next for her, she will not change her unconventional style.

“I am a believer in preaching outside of the choir,” she said, and “infiltrating and influencing pop culture.” She noted that Trump had been able to link culture and politics in crafting the campaign that took him to the White House.

” … one of the elements of the perfect storm that he is was already his notoriety and his influence on pop culture. That was one of the things that he brought to the table that certainly I recognized early on, and said yep, he’s the one, because he taps into the pop culture thinking,” she said.

“I don’t think any of us should hesitate to be a part of that, if we’re going to do it for good,” she advised other conservatives.
