Insider Provides Scoop On Bilderberg's Take on Trump

This year's Bilderberg meeting is over.

Two top Trump Administration officials attended the event, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. Ross is very close to Trump.

After the gathering, most attendees did everything they could to dodge the press waiting outside the event hotel and at the airport, but intrepid Guardian reporter Charlie Skelton managed to speak with attendee Michael O’Leary, CEO of Ryanair:
 I asked him about the top item on this year’s agenda: “The Trump Administration: A progress report”. What was Bilderberg’s verdict?

O’Leary thought for a moment. “I would say … reasonable. He’s got things done, but there’s more to do.”
He's got things done, but there's more to do, from a Bliderberg member perspective? Yikes!

More from Skelton:

Trump’s commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, must have made a good case. Ross was a clever choice of envoy: a private equity billionaire, a former trustee of Brookings and a former Rothschild investment banker. He’d fit right in at Bilderberg.
I asked if O’Leary had found the conference useful. “Absolutely,” he said. “It’s always very useful.”...
The relationship between Bilderberg and Goldman Sachs runs deep. This year’s conference featured senior figures from the bank; the annual returns of American Friends of Bilderberg, a tax-exempt group, show it registered to the address of a Goldman Sachs board member, James A Johnson. Its sister organisation, the UK-based Bilderberg Association, is heavily funded by Goldman Sachs and registered to the business address of Simon Robertson, former managing director of the bank’s London operation, Goldman Sachs International.
The current chairman of Goldman Sachs International, José Manuel Barroso, sits on the Bilderberg steering committee, alongside the chairman of the bank’s International Advisory Board, Robert Zoellick.
Trump's top economic adviser is former Goldman Sachs CEO, Gary Cohn.
