Trump's team of gazillionaires
Donald Trump campaigned as a champion of the “forgotten man” and won the White House on the strength of his support among the white working class.
So far, he’s stacking his administration with masters of the universe.
Beyond Trump himself, who claims a net worth of more than $10 billion, the president-elect has tapped businesswoman Betsy DeVos, whose family is worth $5.1 billion, and is said to be considering oil mogul Harold Hamm ($15.3 billion), investor Wilbur Ross ($2.9 billion), private equity investor Mitt Romney ($250 million at last count), hedge fund magnate Steve Mnuchin (at least $46 million), and super-lawyer Rudy Giuliani (estimated to be worth tens of millions of dollars) to round out his administration. And Trump’s likely choice for deputy commerce secretary, Todd Ricketts, comes from the billionaire family that owns the Chicago Cubs.If you put the forgotten man in scary quotes, chances are you are a Washington elite who has no clue about the rest of the country. Yes, the forgotten man is real. If it takes a gazillionaire to help him, so be it.
What the men and women on Trump's team share in common is winning.
They know how to succeed.
Romney is an expert in taking over failed enterprises and turning them around. That was why I voted for him in 2012. We have a failed socialistic state run by people who don't know photosynthesis from polyester.
Unlike Obama's Team of Leeches, these peopel (if indeed they are appointed) will not steal the office furniture nor use their position to set up a cozy six-figure job lobbyinbg after they leave the government.
We need a Team of Gazillionaires to reverse the nation's economic polarity.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
