No Holds Barred: Gina Rinehart’s No-Nonsense Approach To Politics And Business As Chief ‘Trumpette’

Must Read

Trumpettes are a group of wealthy women who enjoy supporting Donald Trump, and Australia’s richest person, Gina Rinehart, is one of them.

The mining magnate, with a net worth of $36 billion, was seen at Mr Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida as he held an event where he confirmed his plans to run for re-election in 2024.

In an Instagram post by ex-president’s son Eric, Mrs Rinehart was spotted with close My Pillow CEO advisor Michael J. Lindell in the background.

Mrs Rinehart, 68, has been a vocal supporter of Mr Trump for many years and flew to his side when he was elected U.S. president in 2016.

She is a well-connected political figure in Australian conservative circles. Mrs Rinehart’s surprise appearance at Mr Trump’s campaign kickoff has drawn new attention to her behind-the-scenes activities.

Mrs Rinehart’s group Trumpettes USA boasts celebrities such as Roseanne Barr, star of the 80s and 90s sitcom Roseanne.

The group was initially formulated by Toni Holt Kramer–a former Hollywood TV reporter, actress, and model who now owns a poodle.

In 2018, Ms Kramer spoke highly of Mrs Rinehart’s support, calling her ‘Australia’s chief Trumpette’.

She has mentioned the billionaire often on social media since then.

“I had the pleasure of meeting Gina Rinehart at Mar-a-Lago last year,” Ms Kramer revealed this information on US TV at the time.

“And someone said, you know, she’s a great supporter of the President. I’m so proud to say that Gina has become a Trumpette.”

It is no secret that Mrs Rinehart supports the ex-President. She met with him, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, and outspoken adviser Kellyanne Conway in 2016.

She supported his plans to reduce business bureaucracy and asked that the Australian government do the same.

“It’s a shame our government isn’t espousing similar policies,” Gina Rinehart said

“We must let our government know this would benefit Australians as well.”

“Unfortunately, government regulation and red tape are one of Australia’s biggest industries, and it is growing.”

In her home country, Mrs Rinehart is a strong Conservative supporter. She has even been helping fly Liberal leader Peter Dutton on her aircraft.

In addition to her other accomplishments, she has donated a large sum of money to the Institute of Public Affairs.

An honorary life member of the IPA, she has given speeches and demanded an end to governments using mining companies as their ‘perpetual ATM’. Companies like Hancock Prospecting fall victim to this false sense of security.

“We are constantly asked for donations to alleviate issues we didn’t create,” she told the IPA. 

Last year, she cautioned that if Australia’s current trajectory of big spending and hefty regulation continues, the country will face the same fate as Sri Lanka and Argentina: a sharp decline from prosperity to poverty.
