Insiders Reveal Trump’s INSANELY CORRUPT Plan Not To Cut Business Ties After All
Trump True-Believers Have Been Hoodwinked…Again!
Yeah, about that swamp draining. A week ahead of his anticipated press conference detailing how he would sever himself from his business interests, sources inside Trump Tower are hinting that yet another Donald Trump con job is on the horizon. After spending the primary campaign bloviating about “Corrupt Hillary”, it appears that the American voter is on the verge of experiencing the ultimate con job firsthand. The New York Times reports that the President-Elect may not divest after all:
President-elect Donald J. Trump is considering formally turning over the operational responsibility for his real estate company to his two adult sons, but he intends to keep a stake in the business and resist calls to divest, according to several people briefed on the discussions.
Let’s be clear: this isn’t remotely shocking to a majority of Americans. He lost the popular vote by over 2.7 million for a reason: we’re not suckers. Trump claimed that “the president can’t have a conflict of interest” last month in a statement that was eerily Nixonian. His campaign-trail confusion over the definition of “blind trust” may have been the first hint. Donald Trump the businessman can profit off of Donald Trump the President in ways too tantalizing for a greedy egomaniac of his caliber to resist. And beyond profit, his presidential ability to lessen his debts could be even more lucrative. It’s clear who the corrupt candidate was in this election. Follow the money.

Republicans, Democrats and independent auditors and watchdog groups have already voiced their concerns, as the Times notes:
The Office of Government Ethics has told Mr. Trump’s lawyers that only a divestiture would resolve ethical concerns, guidance that was made public in an extraordinary stream of posts on the office’s Twitter feed.
His own team has similar worries:
Some on the transition team have privately expressed concern over how foreign and domestic interests could seek to curry influence with the president by doing business with his adult sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, that ultimately accrues to Mr. Trump’s financial benefit.
Does this matter to the President-Elect? Of course not. It’s obviously business as usual on Fifth Avenue.
This is not the first time he’s pulled the wool over the eyes of his supporters. Remember how he was going to “Build That Wall”? That’s not happening. How about those raucous chants of “Lock Her Up”? He flip-flopped on that immediately. The man who told his supporters he would “drain the swamp” instead tabbed the so-called “Foreclosure King” to run the treasury. And in a twist of events that must needle his most ardent backers, he’s offered nothing but praise and adulation for President Obama since becoming president-elect.
They were sold a bill of goods, this couldn’t possibly be any clearer. And now the world is made to suffer for their ignorance.
