Trump Names Yet Another Goldman Sachs Executive to His Team (Politically Correct Edition)
President-elect Donald Trump has named Dina Powell, an Egyptian-born, Goldman Sachs executive who served in the George W. Bush administration, to a senior White House role.
Powell has been advising Trump's daughter, Ivanka, but in her new position she will be an assistant to Trump and senior counselor for economic initiatives. She will focus on “entrepreneurship, small business growth and the global economic empowerment of women,” according to a statement from Trump's office.
The global economic empowerment of women?
Sounds like Trump is going to attempt to bring political correctness to the entire damn vast stretches of the Empire.
Powell is president of the Goldman Sachs Foundation, where she oversees some of the bank's largest philanthropic initiatives, including the “10,000 Women” program, which helps female entrepreneurs around the world.
“We will miss her at Goldman Sachs but know the country will benefit greatly from her deep commitment to creating opportunity and economic growth in communities throughout the United States,” Lloyd C. Blankfein said in a statement.
“The Trump administration has a unique opportunity to unleash the untapped potential of small business owners and female entrepreneurs, and by working together with the public and private sectors we can ensure they continue to be a critical part of growing the economy and creating jobs,” Powell said.
