President Donald Trump Draws Margin Between The Rich and Poor In America


Olayiwola A. Ridwan, Correspondent

Americans have been reacting to the one-sidedness in the dispensation of the Donald Trump-led Administration, especially with the recent appointment of public officers. They have alleged the president of being bias, pin pointing his recent political appointments as evidence. It will be recalled that the President appointed billionaire investor Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary and the former Gold Sachs president Gary Cohn as chief economic adviser.

Without denying the allegation levied against him, the President noted that America, in her greatness, cannot afford to entrust her economy in the hand of the poor, emphasizing that the dream of America must be reflected on those who are custodians of her government.  According to a report, as published, on the Telegraph news website, ‘President Donald Trump has said he would rather not have a “poor person” overseeing the US economy.’ He disclosed that some powerful positions must not sold out cheaply as they are not only vital but integral to the prosperity of the States.

“I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense? If you insist, I’ll do it but I like it better this way.”  He recalled he response to someone demanding the rationale behind his all-rich political appointments. He categorically restated that his reason bothered on giving Americans the best, selecting those who are ready to sacrifice for the country and not really interested in accumulating wealth as they are well balanced in rounds.

“Somebody said ‘Why did you appoint a rich person to be in charge of the economy? I said ‘Because that’s the kind of thinking we want’.  “They’re representing the country. They don’t want the money. They had to give up a lot to take these jobs. They gave up a lot.”  “When you get the president of Goldman Sachs, smart. Having him represent us, he went from massive paydays to peanuts. These are great brilliant business minds and that’s what we need. That’s what we have to have so the world doesn’t take advantage.”
