    Moire proof Trump is using his presidency for personal gain for he and his circle....

    TRUMPíS TEAM OVERSEEING WALL STREET BRINGS IN MORE GOLDMAN SACHS ALUMNI, DOCS REVEALhttps://theintercept.com/2017/07/15/...i-docs-reveal/


    Why do ya think Trump did not take his salary for the Prez's seat?

    When in fact, Trump is filling the swamp with "Super Gators"............


    AFTER USING GOLDMAN Sachs as a punching bag for his campaign, sharply
    criticizing his political opponents for ties to the investment bank, Donald Trump has taken unprecedented steps to appoint former Goldman Sachs attorneys and executives to the upper echelons of government.


    It goes far beyond whatís been reported. Not only is Jay Clayton Trumpís chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission, after serving as the attorney who advised the bank during the bailouts of 2008, but new disclosures show that the team Clayton brought with him to oversee the financial market regulator are also former Goldman Sachs attorneys.


    The Intercept obtained the ethics disclosure form for Sean Memon, Claytonís deputy chief of staff, which shows that Memon previously worked for Goldman Sachs, as well as a range of other Wall Street clients, including Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, AIG, MetLife, Ally Financial, and Deutsche Bank.


    Last month, Clayton also brought in Steven Peikin as one of two directors of the enforcement division of the SEC, one of the most prominent positions at the agency. Peikin, like Memon, previously served as an attorney to Goldman Sachs and other banks. All three men are former lawyers with Sullivan & Cromwell, arguably the most influential law firm of the 20th Century.


    While previous administrations have retained staff with ties to major banks, Trump has turned his administration into somewhat of a Goldman Sachs alumni organization.


    Trumpís inner circle consists almost entirely of former Goldman Sachs executives, including his chief political adviser Steve Bannon, his national security adviser Dina Powell, and his top economic advisor Gary Cohn. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin worked at Goldman Sachs for 17 years. Last month, Trump nominated Eric Ueland, a former Goldman Sachs lobbyist, to serve as as the Under Secretary of State, one of the most senior posts in the State Department.


    The appointments coincide with Trump advancing a regulatory and tax agenda that is largely identical to the policy demands of the financial services industry.


    In June, the Treasury Department released a report outlining a new wave of prospective deregulation, including loosening capital requirement standards imposed after the 2008 financial crisis and gutting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureauís ability to police financial institutions. The tax reform priorities of the administration, which include lowering the corporate income tax rate and creating a tax holiday for overseas corporate earnings, are strongly shared by the leading figures on Wall Street, including Goldman Sachsís Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein.


    The 'SUPER SWAMP" is alive and well, profiting

    These are quality qualified people according to Roy. I was wondering where the hell he heard that line from. Sure enuf Roy heard it from Trump lol. It's weird because Trump also called these guys parasites and Hillary and Cruz were nothing but puppets to them. Weird. The thieves of wall street are rearing their ugly little heads again and we got to thank all the god dam nitwits who fell for the Billionaires bullshit once again. MAGA

    Every president has used his presidency for personal gain in some way. But most benefited after the fact on book deals, speaking tours and consults fees. What makes Trumps benefiting so egregious is that he has been running a good ol' boys club since day 1 where him and his cronies gonna rake in the entire time at the expense of our democracy. In a way, may it's better he ripped off the band-aid, and then again, maybe not. We'll see

    Trump is in his 70's. He is a billionaire. He didn't need to run for President. This thread belongs on the fake news channels, because that is what this thread is, fake news.

    None of this matters republicans won so they get bragging rights for 4 years. Whatever party energizes their base and appeals to the blue collar vote will get it next time and the losing side will be crying foul play.

    Yep Trump is worth billions and became President to make millions.. Idiocy runs deep in these threads..

    He became President because he didn't like seeing what was happening with Obama in the last few years.. He became president because we needed change and God was watching..

    Trump had his reasons... Trump wanted to stimulate business growth so lowering corporate taxes was always part of the plan to further stimulate job growth...

    Golman Sachs people apparently can get the job done.. Trump is all about hiring the best people for the job..

    Without a shadow of a doubt if President Hillary had appointed the same people you would have screamed, cried and jumped up and down.

    He did what he does best: he tricked the simpleton lemmings into thinking he's a lot sharper, stronger and more powerful than he actually is.

    Sadly, now we all have to live with the consequences.

    Pauly obamas cabinet was filled with citi bank...what's the point here? I'd like and challenge anyone on here to tell me who the perfect presidential candidate is. You do realize it takes 100's of millions of dollars to run for president. You tell me how they would do it without scratching a few backs. They all do it every single on of them. Do I think trumps perfect? No. Do I think I'm a sucker because I voted for him? No. Someone please tell me who's absolutely perfectly politically.

    There is an overarching point to what youre saying and its not in the illusion youre speaking of. The people "running" are not some arbitrary candidates, they have long ties with the "establisment" whether through kinmenship, decades-long loyalty, and/or ideology.

    Yes, it's easier to fool people than convince them that they have been fooled.
