The Wall Street Journal today in an editorial demanded that President Trump hold a fire sale by selling off everything he owns in the next 73 days.
Why does the Wall Street Journal hate capitalism?
From the editorial:
The Trump Family Political Business
The left is already teeing this up as a daily target. Answer: liquidate.
One reason 60 million voters elected Donald Trump is because he promised to change Washington’s culture of self-dealing, and if he wants to succeed he’s going to have to make a sacrifice and lead by example. Mr. Trump has so far indicated that he will keep his business empire but turn over management to his children, and therein lies political danger.Blah, blah, blah.
The Wall Street Journal DEMANDS that President Trump appease the left?
That is not the American way.
When George Washington accepted the job as president no one in their right mind DEMANDED that he liquidate Mount Vernon.
President Trump already sacrificed for his country. He donated up to $100 million to his campaign. On top of that, he sacrificed potential earnings that, by the end of his first term, should easily top $1 billion. Economists call this opportunity cost.
Why does the Wall Street Journal hate capitalism? Does its editorial board (one member publicly stated he wanted Hilary to win 50 states) now consist of Social Justice Warriors?
I thought his enemies in the press and the Democratic Party would ruin him if he lost.
Now these blowhards are trying to ruin him even though he won.
When she became Secretary of State, no one on the Left DEMANDED Missus Clinton liquidate her foundation? And that was a criminal enterprise.
Stay the course, President Trump.
