Steve Rattner: ‘Essence’ of Trumponomics ‘Is To Help Those of Us at the Top’

‘He is yet to put anything forward that will actually help the people who elected him’

EXCERPT:

GEIST: "Can you talk about the effect that number has, the Dow, the NASDAQ, the S&P, on people who aren't Wall Street executives?"
RATTNER: "That’s the key point, because the effect is approximately zero. There will be some trickle down in your IRAs and your this and that. But this is the essence of Trumponomics. The essence of Trumponomics is to help those of us at the top with tax cuts, with making the stock market go higher, with deregulating our business, but he is yet to put anything forward that will actually help the people who elected him."
