FOX Business Network commentator Lou Dobbs says Donald Trump’s victory represents a triumph for blue-collar workers.
“Trump won because he identified with blue-collar workers and he spoke their language,” said Dobbs on his FOX Business Network show. “Blue-collar workers’ fortunes will turn around now they have someone who understands them.”
FOX News commentator Eric Bolling shared similar comments during a recent commentary. Bolling said Trump will stop greedy CEOs exploiting workers. During a recent “Cashing In,” segment, Bolling said Trump will crack down on the “globalist” CEOs and bankers who were responsible for outsourcing jobs.
“Banksters got massive wealth, CEOs got rich… [but] someone has to pick up the tab or take out the garbage,” he said.
However, as usual Bolling has things completely wrong. Trump has stocked his cabinet with millionaires such as Betsy DeVos and Linda McMahon, wife of WWE founder Vince McMahon, and bank executives who got rich from government bailouts.
Andrew Puzder, Trump’s pick for labor secretary, is a fast-food executive who makes more than $17,000 per day, while opposing raising the minimum wage. He is also in favor of replacing more workers with robots, according to CNN.
