Trump is always talking about having good business ethics, staying within the law. Sometimes people in business do some messed up things to others even though it might be legal, and I'm sure Trump has done a few things in his days, but NOT the deranged things that Obama has already done and wants to keep doing to the American people.

When will people realize the POTUS has NO control over anything other than personal and Micky Mouse crap bread and circuses? The real backroom dealings go far beyond any president.

How do we fix that revolving door? As much as we would like it to be so and despite their claims. Presidents are not experts on every facet of the world. When the executive branch needs to consult on matters of fiscal policy who should they go to? Typically they go to the established members of that field which means high level management in the large banks and investment firms. Should we want them to go to people with fewer qualifications? The same is true of Congress, most of them are Lawyers they are not MBA's.
Remember what happened to the Soviets when they killed all of the skilled labor and let the layman run various sectors? They killed the watch makers and no one could tell time. They killed the farmers and millions died from famine. It's good to consult experts to decide policy.

You can get skilled experts from small companies as well.
