Donald Trump was at it again, wowing a crowd of his supporters and admirers at a rally in Iowa where he defended appointing millionaires and billionaires in his Cabinet positions despite the fact that he continues to portray himself as a champion of “forgotten men and women” all over America.
Trump’s administration consists of more millionaires and billionaires than any other administration in US political history.
At the rally, he was defending his appointment of former Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn as White House Economic Adviser and Mr Wilbur Ross as Commerce Secretary. Wilbur Ross has a networth of US $2.5 billion.
“I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense?” he said to a large crowd of his supporters and fans who cheered and screamed “We Love you Trump!”
Although Trump prefers to surround himself with millionaires and billionaires and identifies as a very successful businessman, he always doesn’t talk about his multiple bankruptcies and business failings and hundreds of lawsuits from his contractors.
He also capitalised on the victory of Karen Handel in Georgia’s special election saying the Republicans were so popular across America.
“We are 5-0 in special elections. The truth is, people love us. They just haven’t figured it out yet.”
Meanwhile, there were calls from his critics to stop his rallies and start governing.
Michael Bloomberg, the former New York Mayor and billionaire philanthropist called upon Trump to stop tweeting and focus on governing.
