Time and again Donald Trump is proven to be right.
Despite his outlandish rhetoric and bold claims, he seems to have his finger on the pulse. Perhaps that’s what forty years in business will give you: insight into the world and our culture.
Although the media wants you to think he’s off his rocker, Trump knows what he’s talking about. He was right about ISIS. He was right about the wall. And he was right about Brexit.
Now we see, once again, he was right about Hillary Clinton.
He wasn’t mincing words when he said she’s in the pocket of Wall Street. Even Bernie Sanders (when he had a backbone) said it. New details, however, proves his claim.
According to the review of donations by hedge fund owners and employees, Hillary Clinton has been the recipient of up to $122.7 million in political donations this election cycle. Donald Trump, however, has gotten a paltry $19,000 from that same segment of donors.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the amount given to Hillary Clinton by denizens of the hedge fund sector is more than twice what they gave in 2012 and constitutes a whopping 14 percent of all money donated to her so far.
It’s clear that Wall Street wants to buy this election. They don’t care about you, the everyday American citizen. They want to keep things the way they are: a status quo that allows the richest in society to call the shots. What do you think Hillary Clinton will do if she’s elected president? Not fight on behalf of the 330 million Americans that need help. But she will support legislation that favors those hedge funds and the 1% of the country.
She has to, they gave her big bucks to ensure it.
The massive donations to Team Hillary are in stark contrast to Clinton’s oft proclaimed desire to put an end to these types of political donations.
During her Thursday acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, for instance, Clinton again pledged to appoint Supreme Court justices “who will get money out of politics.” If necessary, she said, “we’ll pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United!”
Big claims. And big lies. First of all, she will never get enough political clout to pass an amendment (that takes 2/3 majority in Congress). Second of all, what the hell Hillary? You’ve taken millions of dollars to win the election. How dare you say you want to get money out of politics. You wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for your friends in Wall Street.
The hypocrisy of Crooked Hillary and the left knows no bounds. They will say one thing to voters and do another. They used to try to hide this behavior, now they flaunt it.
The only response is to get Hillary and every last one of her cronies, out of Washington for good.
