Trump’s magical deceptions
RE: U.S. presidency
A good magician knows that observers must be distracted or they will see what is really happening. Trump surely understands this. If people are focused on “the wall” and who will pay for it, little attention is paid to the changes in financial regulations that he cares about.
He has ordered a review of the 2010 financial oversight law implemented in the U.S. to keep unscrupulous Wall Street money men from causing another financial crisis like the one in 2008-09. This will be overturned because he wants to help “friends of mine with nice little businesses.” He also has no interest in a law that prevents financial advisers from directing clients to investments that give the highest commissions. These are laws that protect ordinary people from the consequences of greed. Why middle class American voters think that a billionaire with billionaire friends has their best interests at heart is beyond me. How long will it take for them to catch on to the magician’s deceptions? John Nixon, Hamilton
