Lou Dobbs Concerned Trump White House Has ‘Lost Its Way’

Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs, a staunch defender of President Donald Trump‘s, expressed concern tonight that the administration has “lost its way.”

Dobbs talked about rising wages before saying, “I’d like to share a few thoughts, however, about what I fear is a new direction for the president and his administration and what could very likely be a catastrophe for the working men and women, small business and entrepreneurs, our middle class, the American family, the very people this president has represented from the moment he announced he would run for the presidency.”

Dobbs brought up the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting at the White House today, which included a number of CEOs like Tim Apple Cook, and said what America watched unfold was “a disastrous policy turn” and “heartbreaking.”

He showed video of Trump saying, “We want to have the companies grow and the only way they’re going to you is if we give them the workers and the only way we’re going to have the workers is to do exactly what we’re doing.”

Dobbs said the presence of the head of the Chamber of Commerce is “impossible to misinterpret” and wondered why the White House “would let him in the door” in the first place, calling him an “enemy” of the administration’s:

“If this White House thinks that listening to the beguiling prattle of Tim Cook, Tom Donohue, RINO senators like Susan Collins is helpful to this president, then the battle of the forgotten man and woman in this country will be decided by the very establishment that if president ran against, an establishment that spends vast sums of money and energy every single day trying to destroy him and his policies and historic presidency.”

“That Mr. Trump would advance the interest of the globalist elites ahead of our citizens would be a tragic reversal on any day,” Dobbs continued. “But today, on the same day the Commerce Department reported the United States had the largest trade deficit in our history, the same day the president of the New York fed said straightforwardly that economic growth is slowing, that the certain border is being overrun by record numbers of illegal immigrants, it all means the White House has simply lost its way and that the nation’s heart will be, after all, broken by the very same people who brought 50 years of consecutive trade deficit and the export of millions of middle class jobs and who have fed the swamp for decades.”
