Former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein may be a Democrat, but he says he’d probably back President Donald Trump over Bernie Sanders in November. “There’s a long time between now and then,” he told the Financial Times. “The Democrats would be working very hard to find someone who is as divisive as Trump. But with Bernie they would have succeeded.” Later, he added, “at least Trump cares about the economy.” Sanders responded in a tweet later. “I welcome the hatred of the crooks who destroyed our economy,” he wrote. Blankfein replied to Sanders’ tweet and said he doesn’t have “hatred” for the senator, but disagrees strongly with policies that would have the government “manage so much more of the economy.”
