CNN Blasts Trump for Wanting Rich People to Run the Economy

What this CNN Panel doesn’t get is that this is exactly what Donald Trump was elected to do. Speak politically incorrect truths and take politically incorrect actions to change the culture in Washington and alter the direction of the country.

Here’s the terrible thing Trump said during remarks in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Wednesday night:

Somebody said, “Why did you appoint a rich person to be in charge of the economy?” No it’s true. And Wilbur’s a very rich person in charge of commerce . . . We can’t have the world taking advantage of us anymore. And I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions, I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense?

Oh the outrage! Putting people in charge of figuring out how to make America wealthy who have already figured out how to make themselves wealthy. How illogical!

But of course, if you express a reality that doesn’t treat everyone equally, that doesn’t assume the false premise that we’re all exactly the same deep down inside, then you’ve sinned against mankind. And deeply upset CNN.

Note how Cuomo repeatedly expresses disbelief that people in Trump’s audience are actually applauding the president’s line that he doesn’t want poor people running the economy.

It’s just another example about how average voters are so much smarter than the people on TV who are lecturing them. They get why they’re applauding. They want people who know what they’re doing in charge. And they’re not snowflakes who think Trump is insulting them, nor are they warped with the distorting thinking of limousine liberals who can afford to create their own reality instead of confront one that wil pay the bills.

Listen, I’ve proven many times that I don’t know how to make lots of money. Mr. President, if Wilbur Ross ever resigns as Secretary of Commerce, please, please please, don’t appoint me to the position.

And BTW, who was Barack Obama’s Secretary of Commerce his entire second term? Penny Pritzker, a billionaire from Chicago.

  1. Us yokels in fly-over understand a lot of what our President says to us.
    We understood way back in 2016 that MrTrump would be giving up his lavish home, his freedom to go wherever he wished, and the ability to get richer by being elected POTUS.
    We know he “lost” a fortune by divesting himself from the stock market and/or making more deals to improve his already massive pile of assets.

    We like that multi-millionaires are now sitting in the Trump Cabinet, some of them of advanced age, not to add to their incomes, but to serve the country they love.
    We know they are giving-back, and they are giving their expertise to reset our out-of-control government agencies.

    • I totally agree. I prefer someone that is wealthy, has succeeded just might be better at running the country than someone that lives on credit (see Obama) and then steals from the taxpayers (again see 0bama). We needs some that knows how to make money and has:)

  2. You don’t get jobs from poor people, unless of course, you work for the government or one of the poverty pimp organizations.
    Keith, required reading!
    This blog post needs to be on every front page and in econ 101 classes.

  3. CNN is just another voice of the demorats. So who cares what they say. Its all fake made up stuff. Anything to dump on Trump!

    Fox just stirs the Pot, we have NO voice!!!!

  4. More stupidity from the Clinton News Network. And what is the point of this exactly? Is Hillary Clinton poor? No, she is a money grubbing old bat. But anything goes, as long as you are a brainwashed democrap cultist. Trump 2020!

  5. I love that my President is filthy rich and his wife wears designer clothes. It is his money and he earned it! I hope his business continues to make a lot of money and I hope all of his children make a lot of money. The end.
