Meanwhile, President Trump visited Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Wednesday for a campaign-style event aimed at promoting the Republican push on healthcare. The rally was interrupted by protesters who booed Trump, prompting chants of “U.S.A.!” by Trump supporters. During the address, the president defended his Cabinet—by far the wealthiest presidential Cabinet in history—including billionaire Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

President Donald Trump: “And I love all people, rich or poor. But in those particular positions, I just don’t want a poor person. Does that make sense? Does that make sense?”
