LETTER

A quote from former Republican Congressional aide Mike Lofgren you might like to print, should raise a chuckle:

“Trump’s cabinet has so many billionaires it makes George W. Bush’s cabinet look like a Bolshevik workers council.”

Martin, are you saying that if you have heaps of money you have no rights to be on any council or be in any cabinet? Frankly I think Donald Trump may be doing the right thing having like-minded people around him - that is why Andrew Little wants the Greens. God save New Zealand.

I would think you would want successful people, who have obviously done well in life, sitting around the top table making the decisions to try and fix the problems affecting your nation. Donald Trump quite clearly did not run for President for monetary reward or for political ambition, may be for his ego, but I think he ran for genuine concern for his country and now wants to surround himself with people of like mind, as any president would do.
It's like people here getting on their high horse about millionaire Americans buying up land in New Zealand. God forbid we allow successful business people to apply for citizenship and bring their ideas and "ill gotten gains" to our "unblemished" shores. Tall poppy syndrome methinks!
