Paulson Cites Hillary’s Globalist Platform as Reason for Endorsement

Hank Paulson, George W. Bush’s treasury secretary, who presided over both the meltdown of the U.S. economy and the subsequent bailout of his close friends and associates, has endorsed Hillary Clinton — citing his belief that she’d be more likely to enact globalist policies on trade and immigration as part of the reason for his endorsement.

Paulson also posits that Clinton would be more likely to cut Americans’ medicare and social security, which Paulson cites as a top priority following the financial collapse he helped to create.

Paulson is also the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, which has given Hillary Clinton hundreds of thousands of dollars for speeches. According to Politico, Goldman Sachs rewarded Clinton with a total of $675,000 for three paid speeches.

“When Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs executives and technology titans at a summit in Arizona in October of 2013, she spoke glowingly of the work the bank was doing raising capital and helping create jobs, according to people who saw her remarks,” Politico writes. “She spent no time criticizing Goldman or Wall Street more broadly for its role in the 2008 financial crisis.”

“It was pretty glowing about us,” one attendee told Politico, “She sounded more like a Goldman Sachs managing director.”

Dave T: Thank you Mr. Paulson for this great endorsement which I presume is payback for Jeb's failure in the primaries. I am shocked at the behavior from GOP establishment. They are as corrupt and crooked as those on the left. Why have a government at all when you have corruption at the levels we have today.

It isn't chic to be a nationalist.
Globalism is the way of the bankers.
They will own everything and enslvae us all with taxes.

Supporting globalism will bring on the demise of the United States. Look at the direction our country has gone the last 8 years due to the globalist agenda.
