Trump’s Latest Picks Aren’t Draining The Swamp

Donald Trump pledged to drain the swamp. Thousands of Americans chanted that three-word phrase. His surrogates took to television to pledge that Trump would do the same.
Trump’s latest moves do little to fulfill such pledges. In the past several days, Trump has done the following:
1. Goldman Sachs Former Soros Employee Steve Mnuchin Democratic Donor For Treasury Secretary. Steve Mnuchin has pledged to work to cut the corporate tax, but added that “there will be no absolute tax cut for the upper class. Any tax cuts we have for the upper class will be offset by less deductions that pay for it.” During the campaign, Trump and company said that Ted Cruz’s wife working for Goldman Sachs was evidence of Wall Street corruption. Now Mnuchin will head the Treasury Department. Mnuchin also oversaw a company involved in some rather shady foreclosure practices. Why did Mnuchin back Trump? He said months ago, “Nobody’s going to be like, ‘Well, why did he do this’ if I end up in the administration.”
2. Democrat Wilbur Ross Jr. For Secretary Of Commerce. Ross is a career Democrat and billionaire investor. Ross helped Trump rebuild his failing casino empire in the 1990s. Ross has said America needs a “more radical, new approach to government” and opposes free trade. Ross was on the New York Democratic Committee and funded Bill Clinton.
3. Considering Goldman Sachs COO For Head Of Office of Management and Budget. Gary Cohn is the COO of Goldman Sachs, and was considered the heir to CEO Lloyd Blankfein. Cohn is another registered Democrat; he’s given money to Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI), Mark Warner (D-VA) and oodles of bucks to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
