FILE - In this Jan. 6, 2016 file photo, former Energy Secretary and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson poses in his office in Santa Fe, N.M. President-elect Donald Trump's decision not to appoint any Latinos to his cabinet is drawing fierce criticism from Hispanics. The move means no Latino will serve in a presidential cabinet for the first time in nearly 30 years and comes at a time when Hispanics are now the largest minority group in the country. Richardson, whose mother was from Mexico, said the lack of appointments by Trump is telling. (AP Photo/Susan Montoya Bryan, File)
