I prefer having rich people in charge of the economy

President Donald Trump defended his appointment of several billionaires-including the former President of Goldman Sachs-to his Cabinet and senior posts at a 2020 election campaign rally in Iowa Wednesday.

"And you could give us a lot of votes and we'd even be willing to change it and move it around and try and make it even better", Trump said.

Making a particular reference to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, a billionaire former investor, Trump said:, "They don't want the money".

Trump also said he'd soon propose a new immigration rule that anyone seeking to come to the US has to be able to financially support themselves and not use welfare resources for five years.

Trump, during his rally, cast off such criticism, saying the appointment of such people as Gary Cohn, a former president of Goldman Sachs, would help the country better represent itself on the global stage. "Does that make sense?" he clarified.

Buoyed by Republican victories in special congressional elections in Georgia and SC on Tuesday, Trump blasted his opponents as "unbelievably nasty" and said cable news anchors appeared stunned by the Democratic losses. The president visited Cedar Rapids, where he discussed his preference for millionaires and billionaires, not "poor people", running the economy.

"When you have over 6,000 people in or around the U.S. Cellular Center and really we didn't have any major incidents, no injuries per say".

Well, turns out there's no secrets - he actually just prefers rich people, admitting that himself while speaking at a rally in Iowa earlier this week. "That's what we have to have so the world doesn't take advantage".

President Donald Trump proposed Wednesday night reforming the welfare system by putting into law a statute that has been the law of the land since 1996.

On the health care bill that Senate Republicans are set to unveil on Thursday, Trump said he hoped they "surprise you with a good plan", but one with "heart".

During the rally, the president also criticized Democrats for losing in recent congressional special elections, according to The Hill. "But these are people that are great, brilliant business minds, and that's what we need." the US President continued.
