100 DAZE: MAJOR, MAJOR MONEY FOR THE TRUMPS by Ilene Proctor Alth0ough the president admits the job is harder than he could have ever imagined, Trump has bravely managed to suffer all the mainstream media’s slings and arrows over his manifest failures and monumental incompetence and stultifying simpleton speechmaking, by enriching himself and his grafter family to the tune of millions, Smart Ass Sass! Trump and his family are “making money hand over fist, Matthew “It’s a spectacle the likes of which we’ve never seen in the United States, and while it may end in disaster for the Trumps someday, for now it shows no real sign of failure.” Trump’s monarchy has unprecedented conflicts of interest in spite of Trump’s promises to separate himself from his businesses once sworn in as president, Trump has merely handed day-to-day management over to his two adult sons while daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner maintain active roles in their own companies while serving as top advisers in the White House. • The president generously allows himself to pull money out of the company at any time. • Eric, the junior Trump says he is giving his father regular updates on the state of the Trump Organization, on a “probably quarterly” timeline but with no specific commitments. • Donald Trump Jr. is not only a top executive at the Trump Organization but also does surrogate interviews on behalf of the president. Furthermore, Trump’s expensive weekend trips to his private club in Palm Beach, Mar-a-Lago provide multiple streams of revenue straight into the president’s pockets. The Secret Service shelled out $35,000 in golf cart rentals so Trump could be adequately protected on the golf course. Agents rooms’ at Mar-a-Lago are paid for in our taxpayer dollars, money which directly enriches the president. For instance, every month, “The Secret Service has to pay $64,000 for “elevator services” in Trump Tower,” “This is a fairly normal kind of expense for the agency, paying a building money to defray the inconvenience of taking elevators offline so they can be inspected for security purposes. But, again, there is nothing normal about the president personally profiting from the security procedure.” “There is something irritating about this, especially from a president who is making a big show of donating his salary to charity. Trump is directly pocketing what could easily amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in direct payments from the Treasury, while simultaneously claiming to be serving for free. What’s more troubling, however, is indirect financial entanglements into which we have little real visibility.” Ivanka’s Chinese copyrights for her clothing brand and the family’s business interests in the Persian Gulf. Most troubling of all, Trump may very well get away with it. Thanks to Republican gerrymandering of districts nationwide, Democrats could score overwhelming and unprecedented victories in 2018 and still only have the slimmest of majorities in the House of Representatives, meaning that efforts to bring the president to heel and exercise real oversight would remain an uphill battle. In other words and other meaning, President Truman said: THE BUCK STOPS HERE.
