THE GIG'S UP : TRUMP HEAVILY INVESTS IN THE VERY ESTABLISHMENT HE ALLEGEDLY OPPOSES

I always thought he was a fake.

But this goes to show just how fake Trump is.

Trump's investment portfolio includes millions in the big banks, big pharma and big oil.

Trump’s May 2016 Federal Election Commission filing, which provides a range of values for each of his stock holdings, shows that the populist president-elect has no problem investing in Wall Street despite campaigning against its practices. “I’m not going to let Wall Street get away with murder,” Trump said at a January 2016 rally. “Wall Street has caused tremendous problems for us. We’re going to tax Wall Street.”

Yet The Donald owns anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million worth of shares each in Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase , Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs -- in other words, five of the famous “big six” banks. Though he once called longtime JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon “the worst banker in the United States,” Trump apparently had a change of heart and tried to recruit the veteran banker to serve as his Treasury Secretary, but Dimon is reported to have declined.[Dimon is on Trump's economic advisory panel]

...Despite campaigning on the pledge of “taking on big businesses,” Trump own shares in big pharma companies including Pfizer, Merck, Celgene and GlaxoSmithKline; retailer Walmart, and consumer goods firms Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson. He also hold stakes in a variety of multinational oil companies like Shell, Chevron and Exxon Mobil.

And not forgetting he has invested in the company that owns the Dakota Access Pipeline.

And that he and his daughter Ivanka use cheap, foreign sweatshop labour in the very nations he rants against, and the Trumps are very aware of the conditions in those cheap, foreign sweatshops.

It just goes on and on and on and on and on and on...
