Schwarzman is also Trump’s informal counselor and has traveled with Trump on Air Force One, to spend time at Mar-a-Lago, since Trump became president.

Schwarzman donated $250,000 to Trump’s inaugural committee in December 2016.

Profiting From Trump's Agenda?

Blackstone profited off the housing crash and heavily invests in a company that fights worker efforts for decent livelihoods. Blackstone stands to profit handsomely from Trump’s agenda of tax cuts for the wealthy and financial deregulation. ● CEO Schwarzman has called Trump’s infrastructure plans a “super big deal” – and it may also be a very profitable deal for Blackstone, which is looking to raise as much as $40 billion for infrastructure investment. ● Blackstone invests in the oil and gas industry, which is poised to benefit from the Trump administration’s support for pipelines, extreme extraction methods like fracking, gutting of environmental regulation, and climate change denial.

Our Demands

  1. Withdraw from Trump’s Business Council;

  2. Issue a clear statement denouncing Trump’s anti-immigrant, -refugee, and -Muslim agenda, and act to stop Trump’s wall and immigration dragnet;

  4. Issue a clear statement supporting legislation eliminating the carried interest loophole; and

  5. Divest from companies that deny climate change, use extreme extraction methods, or profit from pipelines that threaten vital natural resources.
