VIDEO: More Proof that Wall Street owns Hillary Clinton, but not Donald Trump

We know Wall Street owns Hillary because she is paid by them for expected services.

Yet more evidence that Wall Street owns Hillary Clinton is found in this Fox News video:

I’ve already pointed out that the only reason Trump is falling behind Hillary Clinton is that donors expect a return on their investment. While this doesn’t absolutely prove Trump’s sincerity it is strong evidence that his statements opposing corruption are genuine. He is acting as the champion of all Americans, not just the wealthy.

The most important statement in the interview above is “particularly Wall Street” (2:57). Traditional donors to the Republican Party including the Chamber of Commerce (that wants amnesty) and particularly Wall Street, won’t support Trump.

Hillary Clinton gets their money, not Donald Trump.

As CNBC reported recently:

Wall Street is not pleased.

A top advisor to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Monday that the party wants to reimplement Glass-Steagall, Depression-era legislation that was designed to prevent big bank “supermarkets,” but which was repealed in 1999.

After the surprise announcement, which came on the first day of the Republican National Convention, Wall Street sources sounded off on the idea that a Republican would reverse course on policies nearly 20 years old and now taken for granted by big banks.

One lawyer, who works with financial institutions on behalf of a white-shoe firm in New York, called the idea “scary.” Even Wilbur Ross, one of the Trump campaign’s biggest supporters from the finance industry, called it “surprising.” Others on Wall Street who spoke to CNBC used stronger language that can’t be printed.

I actually don’t think Glass-Steagall repeal was the reason for the financial crisis, though it still might do some good to reinstate it.

But Wall Street doesn’t ever want to explain how the financial crisis happened and how to protect the public. Until they do, they have no right to complain if others come up with wrong answers. The Federal Reserve is the true answer, but Wall Street will never admit it.

Neither will their hired servant, Hillary Clinton.
