There is an opinion piece on Slate about this. What it may boil down to is "So, if there are few good reasons to bail out the cruise business, and some very good reasons not to, why does Trump think they’re a “prime” candidate for help? Well, he happens to be friends with Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival, which also sponsored The Apprentice. And this president always puts his friends first." He must be conflicted, however. The thought of using U.S. tax dollars to help out all those non-American employees! Nah, that's just collateral damage.
