Trump: Wall Street Protesters Should Picket White House

Monday, 10 Oct 2011 11:59 AM

If the protesters camped out on Wall Street in New York City and elsewhere throughout the country are upset about the lack of jobs, they should take their protest to Washington, real estate developer Donald Trump says.

Trump’s comment on “Fox and Friends” today referred to Occupy Wall Street protests in New York that began in mid-September and have drawn thousands. Similar protests have since sprung up around the country.

Story continues below video.

“Nobody really knows down there what they’re protesting,” Trump said. “You keep hearing different things and really very far flung things. But the interesting thing to me is they should really be, because it’s supposed to be about jobs, they should be picketing the White House.

“They should go and picket the White House, thousands and thousands down to the White House because supposedly it was about jobs and, you know, the White House is not doing much of a job on that.”

One aspect of the protests concerns banks refusing to lend money. As a result, small businesses cannot get loans and hire new employees.

“Well if they are saying that, they happen to be right because the bank are not lending, there’s no question about it,” Trump said. “The banks got bailed out and they’re not lending. “
