President-elect Donald Trump announced Friday that the new head of his White House National Economic Council will be another Goldman Sachs executive. Gary Cohn, who is president and chief operating officer at Goldman Sachs, joined the Wall Street firm in 1990 and has since served in leadership roles involving bond trading, according to Reuters. He eventually become co-head of broader securities at the company and was promoted to co-president in 2006.
Gary Cohn? Seriously?
We knew that Hillary was taking money from Wall Street. We knew the degree of corruption of the Clintonian dynasty. We knew how much the system is rigged to serve the interests of the banking mafia, but this is beyond imagination for a candidate that has been fully promoted as 'anti-establishment'.

You guys obviously interpreted what he said wrong, he's going to build a wall to prevent the swamp from draining!
Bankers and hedge fund managers have been getting put in key positions for decades now, Trump is only continuing the tradition, building a dam (wall) to keep the swamp full.

Bolton was forced to resign as UN amabassador because of his open contempt for the UN globalist agenda.
That is right on par with the voter mandate that got Trump and republican majorities in congress and senate elected.

For many, The Donald is their messiah, come to lead them out of the miserable life towards that glory that is "America Is Great Again."...Today's Donald, is yesteryears Obama, both represent Change.
Totally agree! I said it before I'll say it again he is the Republican "messiah" just as Obama was projected as the Democrats "messiah"! And like Obama before him Trump will do very little to bring about any real "change" to the status quo...

Just another anti-Trump thread . Some folks should actually research (and I know that is an unknown term for some) ,
who the "bankers" (GS is an investment firm, not a bank) are. They are all registered Democrats. Of course , you didnt know that , either . Look at their views on some subjects before you post.Not just jump head first into an article just because it matches what you want to think...

Why are people arguing about a Goldman Sachs executive being nominated to the position of his "White House National Economic Council"
Seems like a good person for the job, It has nothing to do with private citizens whatsoever..

And with what bernie sanders said the day before November 8th, which was to hold our officials, or president, accountable....
They now have to operate their business in the interest of its people, not the interests of its company. This... this is actually quite brilliant, yet stupid, but con founding if you ask me.
Honestly everyone thinks they are going to run around creating lies, scandals, ponzi schemes... but if they do..... and it goes against our interest? Could we actually sue our own government?
Maybe all we have to do is hold them 100% accountable. If they fail they need to be fired.
In a strange way by putting these banksters in to positions of which they must play by the rules of the government... don't you think it will make it that much harder for them to try and leave us holding a dead cat in a bag?
