'I just don't want a poor person' running the economy

President Donald Trump said in a campaign-style rally in Iowa Wednesday night that he would be introducing legislation so that immigrants to American would not receive welfare benefits for at least five years.

President Donald Trump said he'd prefer not to have a "poor person" in top economic positions in his administration during a 2020 campaign rally on Wednesday.

President Trump, who made immigration a major issue during the campaign that ended in his electoral vote landslide, will strengthen "public charge" rules and ensure that they are enforced, the administration said.

"I love all people, rich or poor", he said. "Does that make sense?" he continued. They're representing the country. And when asked about Trump's blueprint for tax reform, Alan Cole, an economist with the conservative-leaning Tax Foundation said there's "Plenty of benefits to high-income earners.And for the middle class?"

In 2010, Goldman agreed to pay $550m to settle civil fraud charges by the SEC of misleading buyers of mortgage-related securities.

And, while Trump painted Wall Street executives as champions of the economy in his speech on Wednesday, he strongly criticized them in January 2016 at a rally in Iowa.

Meanwhile, Wilbur Ross, a former investment banker at Rothschild & Co., helped Trump avoid bankruptcy in the early 1990s and saved his Taj Mahal casino hotel from collapse.

It included protesters escorted out by police, Trump attacking the news media and supporters waving signs saying "Drain the Swamp" in Washington.

In a knock against his general election opponent Hillary Clinton, Trump said that no one knew what she stood for other than the fact that she was against him. They don't want the money.

"All we do is win, win, win", he told a cheering crowd.

He then went on to appoint millionaires to his cabinet, making it the wealthiest administration in U.S. history. Smart! Having him represent us - he went from massive paydays to peanuts - these are people that are great, brilliant business minds. "Pretty good imagination, right?"
