Trump should not tell businesses to fire people

I thought Republicans were opposed to government intervention in private business.  Yet, Trump:

  • Said individuals working for the media (ESPN, the Washington Post, and ABC) and NFL players who kneeled should be fired. Should he be telling private businesses who to fire?
  • Made sure Carrier got a deal to keep jobs in Indiana. (Carrier later cut jobs anyway.)  Is this fair to Carrier’s competitors?

He’s wrong to say things like this but the gutless hypocritical Republicans in Congress won’t stand up to him.  This doesn’t even cover the conflicts of interest from his businesses competing with private businesses not owned by government officials.  That’s wrong, too.  Sad!
