Trump’s commerce secretary will be Wilbur Ross, a billionaire investor who worked as senior managing director of Rothschild Inc.
The Cabinet-level position, which requires Senate confirmation, serves as the government’s chief business advocate. The Commerce secretary is a liaison between companies and the White House. Ross could play a key role in what are expected to be Trump’s signature economic policy issues like trade and jobs.
Increasingly, it looks the Trump signature will be shaped and driven by banksters and guys like Ross who specialize in leveraged and distressed buyouts, making a killing off the Federal Reserve asset rollercoaster.
He also worked as New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s privatization advisor and was a member of the Wall Street secret society Kappa Beta Phi made up of high-ranking financial executives. Robert Rubin, Jon Corzine, and John C. Whitehead, the former head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Rockefeller confidant, and Goldman Sachs chairman are also members. Ross is the “Grand Swipe” or leader of the group.
It should be noted Ross helped Trump keep his casinos and other properties after the real estate market in New York City bottomed-out. Ross worked for Rothschild at the time.
