Democrats Unable To Stop Trump’s Cabinet Picks As Steven Mnuchin Is Confirmed As Treasury Secretary
Democrats Unable To Stop Trump’s Cabinet Picks
Democrats are trying to flex their muscles but are realizing that they have none. While that might sound biased realize that for all the charades and uproar they have caused over the last several weeks they have been completely unable to stop Trump.
Late on Monday the Senate voted 53-47 to confirm Steve Mnuchin to the Treasury Secretary position. Mnuchin is a highly successful businessman with over 30 years on experience working in the financial sector.
Senate Finance Chairman Orrin Hatch, a Republican from Utah, commented on Mnuchin “He has experience managing large and complicated private-sector enterprises and in negotiating difficult compromises and making tough decisions — and being accountable for those decisions. Mr. Mnuchin is clearly qualified to serve as secretary of the United States Treasury.”
Democrats have pointed out the ties that Mnuchin has to Wall Street since he is a former top executive at Goldman Sachs and has been a Hedge Fund manager. CNN reports that Chuck Schumer looked to try to score some points against Mnuchin knowing that the Democrats were powerless to stop him by pointing out that Trump has a “pro-Wall Street agenda.”
These same Democrats that are attacking Trump for his supposed “pro-Wall Street agenda” are the same Democrats that supported Hillary Clinton, who is the biggest sell out to Wall Street in modern history. Emails released by Wikileaks showed that Clinton was very comfortable being in bed with Wall Street.
Fox News reported back in July of 2016 that “Hedge fund owners and employees have so far this election cycle contributed nearly $48.5 million for Hillary Clinton, compared to about $19,000 for Donald Trump, an indication that Wall Street is clearly backing the Democratic presidential nominee.”
