Far from swamp draining, the president's arrival by the Potomac shores may be compromised by elites' easy access
In Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, his frequent, unbridled slaps at Wall Street elites and arrogant, job-busting corporate executives gave him the “populistic” patina he needed to win. But wait a minute. Who are those guys escorting the Donald into the Oval Office?Oh, my God, they’re Wall Street elites and arrogant corporate executives! Trump campaigned on the theme of remaking Washington by “draining the swamp” of pay-to-play corporate favoritism and cronyism. But those swamp critters may be the very ones aiming to buy favors from the president to be by putting up tens of millions of dollars to pay for his inaugural extravaganza and his transition operation.
