Goldman Sachs President To Advise Trump On Economy
US President-elect Donald Trump has hired the president of the notorious Goldman Sachs to advise him on economy.
In a news release on Monday, the future president repeated his anti-establishment economic promises, juxtaposing them with the official announcement of Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn as the director of his National Economic Council (NEC).
“As my top economic advisor, Gary Cohn is going to put his talents as a highly successful businessman to work for the American people,” Trump said. “He will help craft economic policies that will grow wages for our workers, stop the exodus of jobs overseas and create many great new opportunities for Americans, who have been struggling.”
Trump’s appointment of billionaires, corporation CEOs as well as retired generals in his administration is drawing criticism from his opponents and supporters.
