This morning on Fox news Kellyanne Conway at the White House urged the public to go buy Ivanka's products.

 

 

I couldnt believe I was hearing that. So much for ethics and conflict of interest. They dont even try to hide it.......

The market is up.   Must be because all those Trump supporters are listening to Conway.    :blink:

Trump has not separated his own business interests from the presidency.  Today he weighted in and criticized an American company for dropping his daughter's products.

Trump is either less intelligent than a 10 year or he is deliberately courting a terrorist response upon American citizens.

Isn't it a coincidence that the very Muslim countries where Trump has business interests are the same ones which were not on Obama's list? Is that why he decided to use Obama's list?

obama sure ain't gonna object to that. :lol:

Trump has to many conflicts of interest to be a legitimate president.  If his tax returns were ever released we may see better his obligations to Putin.

Staunch conservative David Frum has some interesting things to say about Tump's authoritarian grab for power and wealth.

https://www.theatlan...it-happen-here/

It seems that his boys are sitting in on meetings with foreign dignitaries and the word that these dignitaries are taking back home with them is if you want access to the White House you deal with Trump Enterprises.

the thread title doan make sense. losing the popular vote doan equate with illegitimacy.

 

so to princess of tap I ask this question.,,

 

can donald trump be blamed for the democrat party's decision to run Hillary? both camps' task was to target those states with the most electoral votes.

 

donny's strategists were an A-Team and her's a Z-Team.

 

a divergence between the popular and electoral votes is always possible in any general election.

 

if obama's people thought they had any kind of a legitimate case to deny trump the presidency they woulda acted on it and they did not.

 

so trump is legitimate. :)

Old Spicer just called Mar-a-Lago the Winter White House.  How is that for giving the Trump business franchise a handout from the Presidency.

Trial Balloon for a Coup? Analyzing the news of the past 24 hours

(5) On Inauguration Day, Trump apparently filed his candidacy for 2020. Beyond being unusual, this opens up the ability for him to start accepting “campaign contributions” right away. Given that a sizable fraction of the campaign funds from the previous cycle were paid directly to the Trump organization in exchange for building leases, etc., at inflated rates, you can assume that those campaign coffers are a mechanism by which US nationals can easily give cash bribes directly to Trump. Non-US nationals can, of course, continue to use Trump’s hotels and other businesses as a way to funnel money to him.

(6) Finally, I want to highlight a story that many people haven’t noticed. On Wednesday, Reuters reported (in great detail) how 19.5% of Rosneft, Russia’s state oil company, has been sold to parties unknown. This was done through a dizzying array of shell companies, so that the most that can be said with certainty now is that the money “paying” for it was originally loaned out to the shell layers by VTB (the government’s official bank), even though it’s highly unclear who, if anyone, would be paying that loan back; and the recipients have been traced as far as some Cayman Islands shell companies.

Why is this interesting? Because the much-maligned Steele Dossier (the one with the golden showers in it) included the statement that Putin had offered Trump 19% of Rosneft if he became president and removed sanctions. The reason this is so interesting is that the dossier said this in July, and the sale didn’t happen until early December. And 19.5% sounds an awful lot like “19% plus a brokerage commission.”

Conclusive? No. But it raises some very interesting questions for journalists to investigate.

Bogie56, but there is this little road block...

 

many will ask do they want pence?

 

end of story. :lol:

but no matter what donald trump won the presidency fair and square.

 

the mainstream media acts like the 2.8 million more in the popular vote for hillary equates to nobody supports trump.

 

what the hell kinda journalistic honesty never mind integrity is that?

 

simple, they're liberals too!

 

and white middle america has understood that for 50 years now.

Trump has doubled his membership fees at Mar-go-Lago to $200,000 and dubbed it the Winter White House.  Its web site features a picture of Trump.  He and the boys also have plans to build as many as 21 new luxury and affordable Trump hotels across America with the Trump brand.
