Financial Expert and Nationally Syndicated Host Dan Celia Says Donald Trump’s First Week in Office is a Promising Beginning, with Historic and Significant Meetings with Business and Labor Leaders
PHILADELPHIA, Pa.—Donald Trump certainly had a busy first week as President, welcoming a steady stream of visitors to the Oval Office for face-to-face interaction with congressional leaders, foreign dignitaries and members of his newly tapped Cabinet—not to mention the signing of several executive orders to make good on his campaign promises.
But among the most important—and unprecedented—meetings, says financial expert and nationally syndicated television and radio host Dan Celia, were those with influential leaders from corporate America’s top companies, as well as the heads of labor from around the country.
“No president—in his first few days in office—has sat down and talked with some of the people that are responsible for America’s economic future,” wrote Celia in a new op-ed for Townhall.com, where he serves as a regular contributor. “President Trump is setting out to make sure that corporate America understands his ultimate responsibility to begin rebuilding middle-class America.”
Even though these corporate leaders and labor heads may have supported Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, their comments as they left the Oval Office were nothing short of remarkable.
“They voiced overwhelming support and a palpable excitement over the steps this president will take to keep jobs in America, rebuild our middle class and regain our economic might,” Celia said. “President Trump asked many of these leaders about what needs to be done to create more jobs and bring more industry to America. Their optimism about Trump’s leadership in the business realm perhaps signals the beginning of a Renaissance era in America, the likes of which could make the 1950s pale by comparison.”
Celia has often written and spoken about the decimation of the middle class over the past 10 years. Now, however, he feels confident that the country will soon break out of its 1978-style labor participation rate.
“We will begin to see pressures on the labor force, where wages will rise and companies will strive to retain good employees, where job opportunities will abound, and where we begin to see the idle hands of the inner-city unemployed enter the American workforce,” Celia wrote in Townhall. “Such developments will bring new opportunities, as will steps to stop any more federal hiring so we can get a handle on what we have, get Obamacare in check, and halt any new regulations from happening as we begin to eliminate the duplicity and regulations erected on an ideology of more government control.”
In his ministry, Financial Issues Stewardship Ministries (FISM, www.financialissues.org), Celia hones in on biblical investing and advises Christians how they can honor God by choosing companies that are not associated with immoral or anti-biblical issues, such as having stake in abortion, pornography, same-sex marriage or other matters that should be concerning to Christians. Through FISM, Celia educates investors by researching the organizations that corporations support and then encourages biblically responsible investing so that God is honored, especially as Americans plan for the new year financially.
