The news pundits spend hours trying to explain the Trump White House but they never get to the real issue. Donald Trump and his family are only interested in promoting their own interests, in this case their egomania and greed. Trump has not divested from his business interests, or shown his tax returns, and has promoted only policies where he can benefit (Keystone pipeline, for example).
Trump has made a concerted effort not to criticize Russia whose oligarchs and banks have funded his ill-conceived projects. One bank, in particular, VneshEconomBank is on the sanctions list established by Obama and other allies. Why do you think he wants to remove the Russia sanctions?
His son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has had undisclosed, until recently, meetings with the CEO of the bank. Kushner's New York developments are in financial trouble and VneshEconomBank, or VEB, is one of its financial backer. Kushner is also an infamous slumlord in New York which hints at his greed. Kushner tried to establish a backdoor with Russia not to pass secrets but to get money. ABC News reported recently that Kushner is $1.3 billion in debt. And don't think for a second that Donald did not approve of that!
Today, Donald pulls out of the voluntary Paris Climate Accord, a move that benefits oil producers, Russia and Saudia Arabia, remember the $110 billion arms deal of last week. Do you think the Saudis may have suggested that Trump should pull out of the accord?
And then there is Ivanka who runs slave labor sweat shops in China and elsewhere to produce her overpriced merchandise. After receiving licensing deals in China, Donald's criticism of China has cooled.
All the talk about Trump playing to his base is bullshit. Trump has a following of suckers who don't even grasp the policies of Trump. Trump is playing to his pocketbook. He is too stupid to be a spy. In fact, he is being controlled by spies because of his greed and stupidity. His usefulness to those handlers depends on him doing their bidding or else they cut off the money flow. Trump and his family are losers and now they are traitors due to their incompetence and greed, end of story.
Comments to think about.
