Goldman Sachs CEO Says He Is Trolling Trump ‘To Be The Champion Of Our People’
(DailyCaller) The chief executive of Goldman Sachs said Monday that one of the reasons he started tweeting, which include criticisms of President Donald Trump, is “to be the champion of our people.”
“The other thing I’ll comment on is when things really affect the ability of our people to be who they are and to do their job and to be effective as professionals,” Blankfein said in an interview with CNBC’s Jim Cramer. “And that’s got the LGBT, the immigrant ban, so that people couldn’t move around with their spouses when they have had a passport for another country. So I commented on those issues because, really, I kind of have to be the champion of our people.”
In just his fourth ever tweet from his official account, CEO Lloyd Blankfein appeared to make a pithy slight at Trump earlier in June while FBI Director James Comey was providing testimony to the Senate.
