Trump has been off the rails. Americans have been robbed of their voice and corruption has prevailed once again. The majority spoke and was ignored. Donald Trump is #notmypresident, and he never deserve the respect of the American people.
Trump own multiple business that cover a variety of industries. If Republicans think for a second that Trump doesn’t intend to use the White House to benefit these businesses they’re nothing short of fools.
From Occupy Democrats:
In what will come as a surprise to absolutely no one familiar with what is rapidly becoming the most openly corrupt administration in American history, the Office of Government Ethics is having supreme difficulty in getting access to the transition team.
New emails obtained by NBC News reveal that since November, the Trump team has been ignoring the OGE and making appointments without first consulting with the ethics agency over possible conflicts of interest. “We seem to have lost contact with the Trump-Pence transition since the election” says OGE Director Walter Shaub.
Once the Trump Administration actually takes over the duties of government, “they run the risk of having inadvertently violated the criminal conflicts of interest restriction at 18 USC 208. If we don’t get involved early to prevent problems, we won’t be able to help them after the fact.”
The careless attitude with which Trump has approached the host of conflicts of interest and possible ethical concerns indicates that, as we all have feared, Trump has no intention of even pretending to run an honest administration and instead will be overseeing a deregulatory free-for-all and the auctioning off of government services to the highest bidder – all the while directing more and more profit to his business corporation, which he has made no progress in divesting himself from despite promises to the contrary.
“Conspicuously absent is any evidence of the preparations allegedly being undertaken by President-Elect Trump to resolve potential conflicts of interest through some manner of divestment. If the President-Elect’s lawyers and compliance officers are not coordinating with OGE, who, if anyone, within the government are they coordinating on these matters?” said federal employment lawyer Bradely Moss.
Something needs to be done. Impeachment maybe? Our country cannot survive if we continue to go on like this. Trump claims to be “clearing the swamp”, but in reality he’s just making the swamp larger.
