'Capital Group, the company of UK PM’s husband Philip May, profited from Donald Trump’s caging of children in immigration detention centers. The centers are run by General Dynamics, which is partly owned by May’s investment firm.
General Dynamics has been assisting the US Office of Refugee Resettlement in processing immigrant-children cases during President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. As many as 2,000 children are reported to have been separated from their parents in just six weeks under the controversial policy. A distressing audio clip of children sobbing went viral on social media.
A number of high-profile corporations have invested in ‘defense’ company, General Dynamics, which manufactures weapons. Philip May’s Capital Group is one such corporation. Its Capital Research Global Investors (CRGI) owns just under $4 billion worth of shares in General Dynamics as of June 20, representing almost seven percent of the company.
Proceeds from the company holding children in detention centers will therefore have helped to finance Philip May’s paycheck from his role as a relationship manager with Capital Group.
Theresa May’s husband has worked in this role for the $1.4-trillion global research investment company since 2005, and is reportedly the Tory leader's “closest adviser,” according to Business Insider.
It’s not the first time that his company has been exposed as a major shareholder in controversial businesses. Back in April, RT reported that May’s Capital Group was the largest shareholder in military arms manufacturer, BAE Systems, whose share price soared after airstrikes in Syria were carried out by Western coalition forces, including Britain.
It’s also the second-largest shareholder in Lockheed Martin – a US military arms firm that supplies weapons systems, aircraft and logistical support. Its shares also rocketed after those missile strikes.'
