What’s the problem? The proposed budget cuts haven’t happened and the new FEMA head doesn’t sound bad.
That’s funny others have forced him to stall the cuts - and you are wanting me to give Trump credit for not executing his promised budget cuts yet.
Fascinating how that Trumpteer’s logic works.
Congress has to vote on any budget cuts, and they haven’t yet.
Meanwhile Trump is selling the baseball caps he wears (@ $40.00) while inspecting the National disaster. It’s nice to be able to make a profit on other people’s misery. But of course he has done this all his life. This is beginning to sound like a real life horror story. I’m sure Trump is well pleased with his TV and Twitter ratings.
If I was religious, I’d quote the bible that the devil comes in many disguises.
He not even disguised he just doesn’t give a shit about laws, morals, ethics, you name it.
He still calls Clinton “Crooked” Hillary, but as we’ve seen with his deep connections to the Putin government and his ongoing conflicts of interest while president he’s the most corrupt president the US has ever had.
On August 5, the Trump Organization announced a new venture via Twitter: the Trump Estates Park Residences, “a collection of luxury villas with exclusive access to” the Trump International Golf Course in Dubai. The Trump-branded (though not Trump-owned) development is part of the company’s ongoing partnership with the Dubai-based real-estate firm Damac, which has previously made news due to its president Hussain Sajwani’s relationship to the Trump family. Individual units are expected to sell for 2.6 million Emirati dirhams, or roughly $800,000.
As with all of the properties with which the Trump Organization is involved, whether as owner or as licensor, the Trump Estates Park Residences creates a number of conflicts of interest. Whether the Trump Organization receives a portion of the property’s revenues or a flat annual fee in exchange for use of the Trump name (and in this case, that detail isn’t known), the company will be profiting from the villas—which means anyone looking to influence the president can try to do so by purchasing one of them.
The project also further entangles the Trump Organization, and by extension Trump himself, with a foreign government, creating the possibility that unscrupulous officials could attempt to gain some degree of leverage with the president by, say, issuing the property environmental violations or, alternately, turning a blind eye to irregularities in sales proceedings, in the hopes of receiving political favors. And the Trump Estates Park Residences certainly seem to go against the president’s pledge that his company would pursue “no new foreign deals” while he is in office, though the Trump Organization has justified similar projects by arguing that they represented merely the fruition of existing deals.
President Donald Trump still has not taken the necessary steps to distance himself from his businesses while in office. In accordance with a plan that he and one of his lawyers, Sheri Dillon, laid out at a press conference on January 11, Trump has filed paperwork to remove himself from the day-to-day operation of his eponymous organization. However, numerous ethics experts have voiced strenuous objections to the plan, which they say does very little to resolve the issue: As long as Trump continues to profit from his business empire—which he does whether or not he is nominally in charge—they say, the possibility that outside actors will attempt to affect his policies by plumping up his pocketbook will remain very much in play.
He’s turned the White House into Trump Inc., and nazis march in the streets to celebrate… when they’re not driving into crowds of people to kill or shut up those who actually want to take America back from this fraud.
