I think the real difference is that they are looking out for themselves AND the system that serves them. If you tinker too much with the system, you can have unforeseen, and negative, consequences. I don't think Trump is smart enough to really see that. He's more for grabbing what he can get and damn the consequences.....he'll deal with those later. Sort of like the global warming argument early on. They had a good thing going with fossil fuels and now it's time to deal with it. Privatize the profits and socialize the expenses. THAT's a good, tried and true grift.
