Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump announced his economic policy advisory team on Friday — a collection of 13 men.

While the list does not include any women or racial minorities, it does include five Steves. The people Trump will ostensibly rely on for economic guidance are are:

University of Michigan economics professor Justin Wolfers noted on Friday on Twitter that the list is short on actual economists and that Navarro appeared to be the lone person on the list with a Ph.D.

Trump, who has previously boasted that he has been “very, very good for women” and “way ahead of the curve” on women in the workplace, in a Thursday interview named only one woman he would include in his cabinet: his daughter Ivanka (a move that would likely be illegal under a 1967 federal anti-nepotism statute).

An earlier version of this post incorrectly identified Barrack as white.
