Trump's New Finance Manager Worked For Soros and Goldman-Sachs

Trump on Thursday named Steven Mnuchin, chairman and CEO of private investment firm Dune Capital Management LP, to serve as the national finance chairman for his presidential campaign.

Mnuchin, also a former partner at Goldman Sachs, will bring finance experience to the campaign’s fundraising operation, the statement said.

Mnuchin’s 17-year stint at Goldman Sachs is only the beginning. Get this:

He also worked at Soros Fund Management LLC, founded by liberal mega-donor George Soros.

This is a lot lik what Mauricio Macri did here. Hired people regardless of their political ideology to get the job done according to how HE wanted it.

I'm not surprised Trump is hiring people that he knows have been successful and know what they're doing. He is not going to and should not hire people because of ideology but because of their abilities.

PS: I can't find any reference that says he worked at Soros Fund Management. He worked for OneWest Bank which was partly funded by Soros.

Nico - if you check the Open Secrets link you'll find his connection to the progressive non-profit wiki: America Coming Together in 2004, a Soros backed entity

Thanks anon.

It still doesn't change the main point of my comment.

If this guy's qualified for the job then I'm glad Trump picked this guy rather than someone who is a "conservative" but has no idea WTF they're doing.

Put it this way, if Trump had picked Ben Carson as his finance manager, I'd start worrying about the dude right away because he's clearly incapable of picking the right people.

The guy works in finance, Soros, doesn't matter how much you might hate him (and that hatred is totally justified), is one of the most successful people in finance. He is the Bill Gates/Steve Jobs of the finance world. As a programmer I wouldn't turn down a job at say Apple (with a fag as its CEO) I don't expect a smart finance guy to turn down a job at one of Soros's companies.

That is pragmatism and its about time a leader used it to benefit the US.

In the end it is possible, highly unlikely, but possible that Trump is in cahoots with Soros. But that is an unlikely scenario, your alternative is Hillary who is DEFINITELY in bed with him. You gotta decide between these two. Any vote for a third party candidate is a vote for Hillary at this point.

Besides, labels have lost all meaning during this election cycle anyway. In 2010 and 2014 voters gave the House and the Senate to the "conservative idealists". What have you guys been able to achieve by doing that?
