Remember that awesome Trump speech in West Palm Beach, FL about the globalist establishment symbolized by Goldman Sachs bankers like Lloyd Blankfein which was cut and aired as Trump’s closing argument of the election?
“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs,” Donald Trump told supporters in South Carolina last February. “They have total control over Hillary Clinton.”
Clinton’s fealty to the finance industry in general — and Goldman Sachs in particular — was one of Trump’s most consistent lines of attack against the Democratic nominee.
The closing argument of the president-elect’s campaign featured images of Hillary Clinton and Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, as a voice-over decried the “global power structure” that had “robbed our working class.”
Thanks, in part, to Clinton’s genuine personal and professional ties to the mega-bank, Trump’s attacks proved effective: Even the GOP nominee’s biggest detractors came to view his opponent as uniquely deferential to Wall Street’s interests — despite the fact that she was proposing new regulations on the industry, while Trump was pledging to free it from the shackles of Dodd-Frank.”
Remember all those attacks on Ted Cruz over his wife’s small-time position at the branch office of Goldman Sachs in Texas?
“Republican rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was blasted for being married to a Goldman Sachs employee.
“Goldman Sachs owns him, he will do anything they demand. Not much of a reformer!” Trump said on Twitter on Jan. 16, 2016.
“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over him. Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton,” Trump blasted his Democratic rival at a South Carolina rally in February.
A Trump transition official refused to confirm Cohn’s appointment in a Friday morning conference call.”
We’re going to #DrainTheSwamp! Just kidding!
Trump has picked the Jewish president of Goldman Sachs, Gary Cohn, to head the National Economic Council which coordinates the Treasury, Labor and Commerce Departments. This is the person he chose to be his top economic advisor.
