    Default The Poor Need Not Apply

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/06...eed-not-apply/

    On Wednesday, Donald Trump, at a 2020 election campaign rally in Iowa … STOP. Reread that, please. Yes, in office only five months, Trump already is campaigning for reelection. Compelling case for term limits, yet this is not the point of my essay.

    Nor is it the point of my essay that while at this event, Trump defended his Cabinet appointments—a bunch of billionaires, like former Goldman Sachs president and chief operating officer from 2006 to 2017, Gary Cohn, who now is Trump’s economic adviser. (You know, same Goldman Sachs that Trump condemned, during that other campaign, for controlling Hillary Clinton. Same Goldman Sachs Trump used to underscore Clinton’s alliance with Wall Street.)
    Here’s what Trump said to his Cedar Rapids audience: “In those particular positions I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense?”

    And:

    …this is the President of Goldman Sachs! Smart! Having him represent us, he went from massive paydays to peanuts. The peanuts, the little tiny…These are people that are great, brilliant business minds.

    Why did all the righties complain about those same Goldman Sachs people before ?

    Success in the upper echelon of finance doesn't necessarily mean they are honest !

    All I saw all over this site was how Hillary should not be president because of her Wall street connections.

    Wall Street connections were one thing but IMO it was about her "secret" Wall Street speeches that she refused to release publicly.. And then again it was about her being a Clinton. and all the baggage she carried.. So she had many more reasons NOT to vote for her..

    We can't see Trump's tax returns, and your worried about paid speeches made by Clinton.
    I bet she paid taxes on the income.
