Trump vs. the global elite

Donald Trump has found a new enemy in his quest for the White House: the global elite.

In a series of economic speeches, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has railed against the forces of globalization, arguing the changes in the economy have betrayed workers and wiped out the middle class.

At the center of the "rigged economy," Trump argues, are "powerful corporations, media elites and political dynasties" and his general election opponent, Hillary Clinton.
"Hillary Clinton and her friends in global finance want to scare America into thinking small — and they want to scare the American people out of voting for a better future," Trump said Tuesday in a speech near Pittsburgh.

“I want you to imagine how much better our future can be if we declare independence from the elites who've led us to one financial and foreign policy disaster after another.”

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is totally controlled by the special interest groups,” Trump said in defense of his plan to possibly pull the United States out the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the TPP.

“They want to have TPP, one of the worst deals, it will be the worst deal since NAFTA,” Trump said.

Trump tweeted that the Chamber should fight harder for the American workers because “China, and many others, are taking advantage of the U.S. with our terrible trade pacts.”


But Trump is undaunted in the face of such criticism. His central pitch to the electorate — that he will “Make America Great Again” — rests on the promise of a revitalized economy where U.S. workers come first.

But in order to get there, he argues, “the people who rigged the system” must be defeated.

“The people who rigged the system are supporting Hillary Clinton because they know as long as she is in charge nothing will ever change. The inner cities will remain poor. The factories will remain closed. The borders will remain open. The special interests will remain firmly in control,” Trump said.

Trump was born into the powerful elite, he got richer by exploiting everything he's complaining about. He has more ex-wives than consistent political ideologies. Trump is the populist punk that guarantees another Clinton Presidency.
