Former Bush administration Treasury Secretary Henry “Hank” Paulson has come out in favor of Hillary Clinton for president. Not that it’s earth shattering news that the former Goldman Sachs CEO would not be supporting Donald Trump because like all those who reaped the rewards of globalism as the ordinary working class got the shaft, he knows who will protect his own interests. Paulson if you recall was the man who got on his knees to beg Nancy Pelosi for the bailout back in 2008 after his Wall Street buddies and their reckless gambling blew a hole in the economy.
Pelosi and her fellow travelers pitched in to save Paulson’s cronies and the rest is history. Mr. Paulson made his appeal via the nexus of anti-Trump hatred at the Washington Post editorial page.
Breitbart News lights into Hillary’s big backer with scathing blast of truth telling in the article entitled “Hank ‘Meltdown’ Paulson Cites Hillary’s Globalist Platform as Reason for Endorsement”:
Hank Paulson, George W. Bush’s treasury secretary, who presided over both the meltdown of the U.S. economy and the subsequent bailout of his close friends and associates, has endorsed Hillary Clinton — citing his belief that she’d be more likely to enact globalist policies on trade and immigration as part of the reason for his endorsement.
Paulson also posits that Clinton would be more likely to cut Americans’ medicare and social security, which Paulson cites as a top priority following the financial collapse he helped to create.
Paulson is also the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, which has given Hillary Clinton hundreds of thousands of dollars for speeches. According to Politico, Goldman Sachs rewarded Clinton with a total of $675,000 for three paid speeches.
