Trump and inherited wealth
Reader comment on: A Weak Argument Against Trump
Submitted by Harry Binswanger (United States), Mar 1, 2016 14:07
Good on ya, Mr. Stoll for pointing out the class warfare element in the attack on Trump's inherited wealth. The only relevance of his inheritance would be if he had squandered it, not grown it.
What the anti-Trump forces (which I count myself among) should be pointing out is that much (all?) of his gains are ill-gotten: governmental loans, special privileges, eminent domain, etc. mark him as, in Ayn Rand's phrase a money-appropriator not a money-maker.
