Under Trump the obsequious, the craven, the ignorant … will inevitably, necessarily, rise to the top, and professionals will find themselves working against longer and longer odds to keep the machine going, and doing it surreptitiously with the hope that nobody notices.
Will be making a decision soon on the appointment of new Chief Economic Advisor. Many people wanting the job – will choose wisely!

On those grounds, I strongly doubt that there are “many people wanting the job” of being his Chief Economic Advisor. And anybody who does is, by definition, second-rate and unfit to hold the position.
