Trump says poor people shouldn't be involved in economic policy

At a campaign-style rally in Iowa on Wednesday evening, President Trump praised recent GOP special election victories and his administration's accomplishments to date, while criticizing the media and Democrats. "I think he could be doing better when it comes to interacting with some of the other people in government".

Speaking to his supporters in Iowa on Wednesday, Trump said: "Somebody said why did you appoint a rich person to be in charge of the economy?".

"Legislators who worked primarily in white-collar jobs before getting elected to Congress - especially profit-oriented jobs in the private sector - tend to vote with business interests far more often than legislators who worked primarily in blue-collar jobs", Carnes writes.

During a rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Trump doubled down on those who questioned his appointment of super rich banker Wilbur Ross as Secretary of Commerce. "But again, They just want to stop, they just want to obstruct". If you insist, I'll do it.

Despite campaign promises to "drain the swamp" of special and elitist interests in politics, since taking office in January, Trump has amassed one of the wealthiest Cabinets in the country's history.

"It's always terrific to be able to leave that Washington swamp and to spend time with the truly hard-working people, we call them American patriots, incredible people", Trump told a crowd here at an event reminiscent of his campaign rallies a year ago.


Indeed, Cohn received a massive payout when he sold his shares of Goldman Sachs, which were worth about $210 million.

"All we do is win, win, win", he told a cheering crowd.

Because they're representing the country.

The president also said that "those coming into our country must embrace our values" and he renewed calls for a wall along the USA border with Mexico, saying publicly what he reportedly had said privately to fellow lawmakers - that the wall would include solar panels. It makes sense. Let's see.

Mexican officials have repeatedly said they will not pay for the wall.

Unable to get Democrats to join Republicans in major legislative efforts, Trump said the wounding by a gunman last week of Republican Representative Steve Scalise in Alexandria, Virginia, had fostered a spirit of unity.
