When the Trump administration announced it would privatize the nation’s furniture warehouse in May, its chief executive, Paul Bremmer, declared the decision to turn it into a private company was a “gift to America.”
“I think it’s a great deal for the American taxpayer,” he said, “because it gives us a tremendous amount of flexibility.”
The announcement prompted some critics to claim that the Trump government had created a “firmament of corruption” that would soon undermine American democracy.
But that’s not the case.
It was a gift to America, said the company’s chief executive.
It’s not just the government that is making a fortune out of the privatization of the warehouse.
“It’s the private sector,” said Stephen R. Levitt, a professor at Princeton University and an expert on government and public-private partnerships.
He said the Trump warehouse was not only designed to profit from government-subsidized projects like the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline but was also a private venture run by the private firm Bain Capital, which had previously been in charge of the renovation of the New York City Transit Authority’s PATH subway system.
In fact, Bain Capital’s stock price has risen by more than 50 percent since Trump’s inauguration, thanks to his business deals.
The privatization of this warehouse has helped Bain Capital raise more than $5 billion.
In June, Trump’s Treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, told a congressional hearing that the “trickle-down effect of private investment in infrastructure and infrastructure projects” would lead to the construction and maintenance of a “great deal of infrastructure.”
And in February, the Trump budget blueprint called for a $1 trillion “national infrastructure plan.”
The Trump administration has also announced a $500 million investment to create more than 1,000 jobs for local construction workers.
The private company that has hired the largest number of contractors to build the Trump White House, a $9.7 billion project that was originally supposed to be completed by 2021, has hired a record number of workers, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
The Trump White Houses office building is one of the largest in the world, and it is being used to build new office buildings, according the Department.

And according to a report by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, the U.S. is now the third-largest construction company in the globe.
The center’s analysis found that the $1.2 trillion project, which is being built by a consortium of private companies, will create nearly 3,500 construction jobs and cost taxpayers more than a trillion dollars.
The project will also create an additional 3,000 construction jobs, and will create 3,400 jobs in manufacturing over the course of its construction, according Center for Public Integrity.
But the Trump plan could also create many more jobs in the private economy than that, experts say.
For example, according a study by the Urban Institute, between 2017 and 2019, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates saw the biggest increase in construction jobs in that country, as well as the highest number of construction workers, with the United states second and third highest, respectively.
The report also found that in 2022, there were 2.7 million people working in the construction sector in the U, A.D., with 3.4 million people employed in the service sector.
But there were more than 3.7 times as many people working as construction workers in the second-largest economy in the Middle East, Egypt, according Bremmers company, which operates the warehouse in New York.
A number of Trump administration supporters have expressed skepticism that private firms will be able to deliver projects that the government is not willing to fund.
But, according R. Daniel Bresnahan, a visiting scholar at Georgetown University, the privatization process can often be successful.
Bresnanahan has studied the private construction industry for more than 20 years.
“The question is not whether private firms can do it,” he told Politico.
“But what is the degree to which they can be successful, given that they are working in a highly regulated industry?”
Bresmann, who has studied how the private industry works, said that while the private contractors will typically use the public-sector contract process to bid for a project, the government will often make the final decision.
For instance, in 2018, the Department built the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and Trump was forced to shut down construction of his controversial “America First” border wall in 2019 after Congress rejected the project.
In 2018, Congress blocked the Trump Administration’s proposed $2.8 billion loan for the construction, but it was approved by the House Appropriations Committee, which approved the loan for $2 billion.
