People who truly believed a billionaire reality TV star was going to get into the White House and “drain the swamp” are getting a pretty clear picture now of just how full that swamp is going to be under a Donald J. Trump presidency.
When he isn’t considering neocons and appointing die hard establishment Republican top brass, he’s busy filling up the ranks with Wall Street.
From a 17-year Goldman Sachs banker who once worked for George Soros as Secretary of Treasury, to a billionaire Senior Managing Director at Rothschild, Inc. for Secretary of Commerce, it’s becoming blatantly obvious the U.S. government will be business as usual only better for megabanks with the Trump Administration running things.
And don’t forget, he also promised to lower taxes for the wealthy in a “trickle down economics” scheme that has proven time again not to work (but it will line the pockets of rich people like… well… Donald Trump and his banker friends).
Now, adding insult to injury, elite bankers are openly laughing at voters who believed Trump when he promised to “drain the swamp”.
Check out this excerpt form an interview with Hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson that appeared in Bloomberg yesterday:
Hedge fund manager Whitney Tilson was feeling happy Wednesday morning.
After Donald Trump ridiculed Wall Street on the campaign trail, the President-elect tapped former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. executive Steven Mnuchin to be his Treasury secretary and billionaire investor Wilbur Ross to lead the Commerce Department. Trump even met with Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn inside Trump Tower.
It would suit Tilson just fine if voters who backed Trump because he promised to rein in Wall Street are furious now that he’s surrounding himself with bankers and billionaires.
“I can take glee in that — I think Donald Trump conned them,” said Tilson, who runs Kase Capital Management. “I worried that he was going to do crazy things that would blow the system up. So the fact that he’s appointing people from within the system is a good thing.”
Wasn’t Trump bashing Hillary just a few months ago on the campaign trail for her cozy ties to Wall Street? How exactly is he any different in that regard now?
The worst is people who are so mired in their own cognitive dissonance that now, when it is coming into clear view just how swampy the swamp will remain under Trump, they’ve changed tactics to arguing that Trump just has to appoint these lecherous creatures of Wall Street into his administration because those are the only people who know how to run things.
America doesn’t need more of the same clowns who created this corruption circus in the first place.
These people Trump is appointing aren’t going to change anything for the better unless that means better for themselves. They know how to run the corrupt money machine per the status quo and keep things business as usual. But wasn’t Trump going to “Make America Great Again”? It’s becoming more and more evident by the day that phrase must mean an entirely different thing to him and his crony Wall Street friends than it means to the majority of people who voted for him.
