Tom Steyer Can’t Explain Trump’s Economic Success

The liberal billionaire is more concerned with political victories than making Americans lives better.

Liberal megadonor Tom Steyer, in an appearance on MSNBC on Thursday, struggled to explain American enthusiasm about President Trump’s economy.

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked Steyer why small and large businesses were more confident under Trump. Steyer, a billionaire, argued that businesses have seized control of America.

“There has been a corporate takeover of our democracy,” he said. “As a result, business is having its way.” He cited GOP tax cuts as evidence that businesses run the United States.

“Then why is consumer confidence up?” Ruhle interrupted.

Instead of explaining why Americans appreciate Trump’s handling of the economy, Steyer argued that an increase in Democratic turnout showed that voters want the president and his party out of office.
