Trump’s Economic Cabinet Picks Signal Embrace of Wall St. Elite
In a campaign commercial that ran just before the election, Donald J. Trump’s voice boomed over a series of Wall Street images. He described “a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations.”
The New York Stock Exchange, the hedge fund billionaire George Soros and the chief executive of the investment bank Goldman Sachs flashed across the screen.
Now Mr. Trump has named a former Goldman executive and co-investor with Mr. Soros to spearhead his economic policy.
So far, none of the nominees who will be shaping economic policy have any significant experience in government.
No ... no experience in government. They're just the puppetmasters, heretofore behind the scenes. Now they get to run the government. Kind of letting a fox into a henhouse to oversee egg production.
I'd love to hear the rationalizations from all the Trumpkins, about this one.
So much for Trump's 'populist' leanings.
The man's a billionaire, off the sweat and labor of the working stiffs he continually stiffs ... and he is filling his cabinet and administration with more of the same.
