Despot-elect Donald Trump is reportedly considering Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn for the top job at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the office responsible for handling the president's budget proposals.
People familiar with the matter say Cohn's meeting with Trump on Tuesday included talks about a potential job in the new administration, possibly to run OMB, a sprawling office that will handle much of Trump's budget policy after he takes office in January.
If Trump selects Cohn, he would be the third Goldman Sachs alumni to join the despot-elect's cabinet.
Trump selected his chief campaign fundraiser Steve Mnunchin, who worked at Goldman for 17 years, to serve as treasury secretary. Trump's chief strategist and Breitbart honcho Steve Bannon also worked for Goldman.
Meanwhile, Trump's pick for transportation, Elaine Chao, is a member of the board of Wells Fargo.
I'm old enough to remember when Trump ran a campaign against so-called elitist bankers. His cabinet will be full of them.
