Chomsky: Trump ‘kind of a con man’
Noam Chomasky says Trump bamboozled people.
“He’s kind of a con man,” Chomsky said in an interview with the Pacific Standard. “He was able to say things to a sector of the population that, in a way, articulated their own concerns and feelings, and did it pretty effectively.”
“To what extent that reflects his own views, to the extent that he has views, is very hard to say.” he added, noting the president-elect parroted “anti-establishment,” anti-Wall Street rhetoric before hiring five former Goldman Sachs employees.
“He says he’s going to bring back jobs and coal and manufacturing,” Chomsky noted. “How’s he going to do that? By picking a secretary of labor who’s very anti-labor.”
