Former General Electric CEO Jack Welch defended President Donald Trump against allegations of “flip-flopping” on many crucial issues.
Trump’s actions are “consistent, totally consistent” with his campaign platform promising jobs for Americans, the longtime Republican supporter said, defending Trump on CNN’s Smerconish on Saturday.
Trump has come under fire recently for appearing to change positions on top issues, shifting from campaign promises and statements he made while running for office.
Critics say Trump has changed his mind about China being a currency manipulator, the fate and integrity of Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and the importance of the Export Import Bank.
Welch won’t have any of that criticism.
“This flip-flop nonsense is ridiculous media blowback,” Welch told host Michael Smerconish.
“Remember, his platform was jobs, jobs, jobs, American, jobs. The things the media is beating him up for flip-flopping, that’s doing a smart thing, that’s jobs,” Welch said.
