Despite supporting Hillary Clinton before the election, Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs vindicates the choice of the “deplorables.”
It must be surprising that Goldman Sachs vindicates Donald Trump’s economic record. Back when Trump was campaigning on making the American economy great again, all the economic and financial “experts” were treating his promises as ridiculous. No one then imagined that the head of Goldman Sachs would be not only praising Trump, but admitting that the economy would have been weaker if Clinton had won. Blankfein himself didn’t imagine it!
Business Insider reports, “Goldman Sachs CEO gives Trump credit for the economy, says it’s better than if Hillary Clinton won.”
“If the president didn’t win and Hillary Clinton won … I bet you the economy is higher today than it otherwise would be,” Blankfein said in an interview with CNN’s Christine Romans.
Blankfein had backed Clinton’s bid for the White House.
Two days before Trump’s inauguration, he linked Wall Street’s newfound confidence to Trump, but fell short of giving him full credit.
