Listen. Can you hear the champagne corks on Wall Street? They’re celebrating over there.
Donald Trump will nominate Steven Mnuchin as the next boss of the Treasury.
Trump said he will reform Wall Street, then he went out and hired Steve Mnuchin as his finance chairman. Mnuchin is a hedge fund manager. He worked for Goldman Sachs, the great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity.
Zero Hedge summed it up nicely:
Should Mnuchin get the nod, it will certainly elevate his former employer, Goldman Sachs, to its traditional level of being pari passu with the US executive and legislative branch when it comes to decisionmaking. It also would mean that the swamp may be about to get a whole lot deeper.
It will be interesting to see the response on the part of the “liberty movement” that fell for Trump’s schtick.
He’s going to pack his administration with CHR members, bankers, fat cat corporatists, and neocons.
Jeb Bush won the election, not Donald Trump.
