Donald Trump is currently continuing his work in draining the swamp by hiring yet another Goldman Sachs guy to run an important job. Gary Cohn, President and CEO of the financial giant, has been tapped to be National Economic Council Director in the Trump Administration.
Trump ran on a platform of attacking Wall Street and Goldman Sach’s in particular. He repeatedly attack Ted Cruz’s wife for her work with Sachs, he claimed Cruz was owned by them, he blasted Hillary for her ties to them and speeches paid for by them.

But nevermind all that.
It is currently unclear if Trump’s plan to drain the swamp includes bringing down the financial giant by hiring all of its employees. This is Trump’s second Goldman Sachs hire, the first being Steve Mnuchin, who worked for the firm for years before working for George Soros.
