Warren G. Harding and Donald Trump PART 2

This is part 2 of the Warren G. Harding and Donald Trump comparison.

The second part is some written content with videos added. Scroll below the text below for the audio from portion 1.

Whereas Pres Harding has his Ohio gang…

President Trump has his Goldman Sachs gang. Predecessors (such as Robert Rubin in the Clinton administration and Hank Paulson in the Bush administration) have blazed the path for such illustrious actions as the repeal of Glass Steagall….

and the implementation of the Toxic Asset Relief Program respectively…

The path illumination I refer to is for the current Sec. of Treasury Steven Mnuchin. Rubin, Paulson and Mnuchin all share the status of alumni of Goldman Sachs. When the history of this time period is written there is no doubt that this GS alum will have reached the heights that his predecessors have achieved.
Adding to Trump’s gang are Gary Cohn, Head of the Economic Council and former GS President and COO, Dina Powell, Ivanka aide and member of the National Security Council, and now Anthony Scaramucci, Goldman Sachs alumni and White House Communications director.

The “Squid”, a Rolling Stone nickname for GS is also amply represented around the globe with such illustrious alumni as Mario Draghi, Pres. of the European Central Bank, Mark Carney, head of the Bank of England and Malcolm Turnbull P.M. of Australia, just to name a few.
Banker Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.”

It would seem that the Donald has done a U-turn from the campaign trail to the Presidency in his views of Wall Street in general and Goldman Sachs in particular.

The 45th President is becoming very reminiscent of the 29th President as a gang is a gang, is a gang.
