‘Total and Complete Joke’: Trump Targets Corporate America on Face the Nation

trumpDonald Trump went after corporate America on Face the Nation today, bashing hedge fund managers and lobbyists and CEOs who get to do what they want because they appoint their friends to the company board.

Trump again swiped at Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton for being owned by donors, adding to John Dickerson that there should be a corporate tax deduction to get companies to bring jobs back to America.

But when Dickerson asked about CEO pay being so much larger than the pay of the average worker, Trump said it’s because company CEOs put their friends on the boards and “get whatever they want, because their friends love sitting on the board.” He called the whole thing a “total and complete joke.”

But when asked about his possible campaign finance reform plans, Trump simply said, “The biggest reform is to get competent people.”
