Well, in the past, the Presidents that have done the most for the poor have usuallly been rich. :-)
FDR was rich. JFK was rich. LBJ was rich. In 2004, the Dems wanted to elect someone rich.
Oddly, history is replete with rich people who want to help the poor. I would suggest that enough evidence exists that Trump and Cabinet, by far the richest we have ever seen, should be afforded the benefit of the doubt.
