As the Republican National Convention wraps up, there’s a rumour going around out west (Australia, not California) that a prominent businessman could be joining the Trump camp. A caller to 6PR in Perth flagged the idea that Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest, mining magnate, was about to get a gig as a senior adviser to the one and only Donald Trump. Business has picked up for Twiggy lately, with Fortescue Metals exceeding its production forecasts for iron ore last financial year, after he had previously called for a cap in iron ore production when prices were down. Forrest is not new to the political scene, but working for Donald Trump …? We watch on with interest.
Twiggy and Trump on the trail?
A caller on Perth radio said that mining magnate Andrew Forrest would soon be working with Donald Trump in America.
