“Establishes that Presidential records automatically transfer into the legal custody of the Archivist as soon as the President leaves office” (Presidential Records Act (PRA) of 1978).
Former President Donald J. Trump who is living lavish in Mar-a-Lago in Florida post-Presidency. Has clearly not followed protocol or cared about the legalities of his public office as a Head of State or as the President. This is with his role as the Executive and public office he needs to national archive documents and logs, which should have been public in the first place.
We know that President Trump and Trump Organization prefers secrecy, and not really preferred transparency. That’s why every document or every investigation into has been stifled and taken to court to release documents from him. There is prolonged and used the courts to keep information away from the ones whose investigating him. This has been done so often and is common practice, that subpoenas never been respected and the investigators has to challenge him in court to get it. Therefore, recent news aren’t shocking.
However, for a man running a campaign of scaremongering and the hypocrisy of him is outrageous. As the former President is now revealed to shred documents, flush them in the toilets of the White House and taking 15 boxes of valuable documents after the term of office was over. While that all is Super-Bad…. there is reports that the National Archives are looking for more lost documents.
This is really showing how blatant he is and how reckless he is. As he knows this is wrong and the Whole White House staff should have known this. As the call-logs and documents has to achieved and kept after White House protocol. This is notes, working papers, drafts and whatever that the Trump Presidency was working on.
The Executive and President should know this as these documents becomes historical documents and proof of his term. We know his a crook and a dishonest actor when he does this. He brought with him the whole office without delivering what he was legally bound to give to the authorities as his term was over. If any other man had done this… he would have gone a rampage and called them something foolish.
“My mansion shit, moved in the West wing” (Tony Yayo – ‘G-Shit’ 2005).
That’s why Trump shouldn’t talk about Hilary Clinton’s emails, which was investigated by FBI. The same has to happen to Trump. His affairs in the White House and post-Office shows that he wanted to hide information and documents that could prove criminal behaviour or illegal activities. Because, why else would he breach protocol and be possibly litigated for not leaving it to the National Archives.
He shouldn’t have taken all of these documents, which is a lot. We can just wonder his hiding. As we have seen a planned executive order for him to order the military to takeover the voting machines post-election. Therefore, he knows perfectly well that these documents could hide skeletons, which shows his pure fascism and planned efforts to overthrow the Biden administration before it even started. This is why he took it with him to Florida.
Nobody destroys documents or shreds them, because his innocent. That is done because you know something is wrong and his hiding something. Just like Trump claimed about the deleted and hidden email of Clinton. It is not like this is any different and is a large scale. This isn’t a private server, but supposed public documents, which his bound by law to give to the National Archives. That was clearly to much to ask from Trump. He cannot even do that… and everyone else had to since Ronald Reagan. Therefore, all of the appointed staff, high ranking officials and the Trump administration should know about these statutes and stipulations. However, they clearly didn’t care or was afraid to say “no” to him. As his entitlement and larger-than-life ego is making him believe he could get away with it.
That’s why he even tried for so long… to use Executive Privilege as a Former President. Trump is that sort of fella and he tried to keep these things secret. Where he took top secret document and confidential ones. He has the nerve to run a campaign on Clinton’s emails, but is much worse himself and this should be indicted, charged and give the man the bracelets. As whistleblowers leaking documents like these are rotting in jail.
The former President should have the Department of Justice litigating him and it’s about time. They need to make an example of him. When they have gone after Edward Snowden and Reality Winner. They should go after Trump who took White House documents with him and he could have easily leaked them like these fellows. Peace.
President Donald J. Trump granted 15 individuals pardons yesterday. This is a clemency from Federal Prosecution and crimes. However, the President doesn’t have powers to circumvent state prosecution or investigations into people. Therefore, the limit is still there.
There is speculation about how these pardons was done… but most likely he traded the cards with several of donors and gave way to some, as they are his team and he doesn’t want them to rat him out after his time in office.
However, when your pardoning people like George Papadopoulos and Alexander Van Der Zwaan. These are not the most prolific people in the Trump Campaign Team of 2016. These was implicated in the collusion with Russia. The supposed “hoax” the President that has called it. Dismissed the Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the whole investigation. Where the President have blocked all witnesses and Congress investigation into it. They have made it impossible to dig into the truth.
These two was part of the Trump Team and they lied, they obstructed justice and the Trump Campaign even said their works was unimportant at one time. I remember Papadopoulos was called a “coffee boy” and a man serving coffee shouldn’t need a pardon. He should instead get some cream to make the coffee tolerable for more people.
So, if these people was innocent. Then they wouldn’t need to get pardoned, but appeal their cases and get it thrown out of courts. Just like all the election petitions in 2020. The Trump Campaign only shows that the US is broken system. Where the crooks can work together and if one of them get into office. The man in-charge can bail them out of the legal jeopardy they got into.
That these two are getting off the hook. Just shows what Trump intends to do. He has already helped his long term ally Roger Stone. There will be others who gets the help of the President. Especially now in the final days of his reign. This man will give clemency to the ones who was loyal to him. We can expect others being picked out and getting pardons. This being Paul Manafort or several others who was indicted. The man has already saved Gen. Michael Flynn. So, there is no reason for him to not save the whole gang.
What we can learn from this? Well, that foreign interference and working with foreigners in an election is cool if your Republican and Trump. However, the GOP and Trump Stans will die on this hill. We cannot expect anything else by people who eating the words of Newsmax, OAN and Fox News. Even Qanon is their voices of reason and that is Cult45 all over it. These folks will not care that the American Republic is traded for gold and licenses deals by their dear leader. No, they are following Trump blindly. So, that he worked with Russia to win is fine. The ones who are against communists and the reds, but can get help from Moscow. The ironies are so enriching from the outside.
Presidency of Trump has achieved a lot. There is a lot of damages to cover and fix for the administration. That the Department of Justice have been weaponized and therefore the up-coming investigations needs to be partisan and independent. There is a need see it and what to expect.
Trump clearly is a crony capitalist and a man who easily get corrupted. That is why he needs others to cover-up for him. Trump needs his allies, especially after he lost all his leverage of office. The Donald needs his former team to be on his side. As there are investigations into him and his businesses. He will be in court and these cases will be moved further. His executive privilege will be history. Therefore, he doesn’t need Papadopoulos and Van Der Zwaan has to be on his side. So, they will not tell more on him or expose him more. The man cannot afford that. Well, the man isn’t paying taxes. So, there is not that much he really can afford. The man has everything to loose and that’s why his few allies are bailed out and getting clemency. Though by doing that. He shows that the Trump Campaign was far from innocent. Because, if they needed pardons then they weren’t innocent at all. Peace.
The Tea Party Movement of 2009 eas an reaction the Democratic Party and the Presidency of Barrack Obama. Which ushered in a movement and aspiring leadership within the Republican Party. That in the end gave a platform to the likes of President Donald J. Trump that thrives on these populist and racists acts.
That President Trump is soon over, but his “Trumpism” and his theories will live on. This man will try to thrive on it and get monetary gains on it too. That is what he does. This is his next racket. Where he uses the political platform and his “legacy” to build on the “America First” and the MAGA crowds. To find ways to make himself viable. Create narratives and even use fiction to gain momentum.
That is why they are still forging the narrative of a stolen election. Continuing with endless law-suits that ends with nothing. The Trump Administration is trying to configure ways to earn funds, build a organization and find backers. Which will give them funds and capital post-Presidency. Since, the President needs it with defaulting debt, criminal cases and lack of good lawyers to carry the pending trials after the loss of “Executive Privilege” and leverage of the White House.
This is why Trump will build on the nostalgia, the ideals of White AmeriKKKa and the “forgotten classes” of society. Where he can bring middle America and sprint into the White Supremacy and ideologies, where he still resembles their “dear leader”. That is why his tried every trick in the book to overturn an election. Just to ensure the safe space and legitimacy. Where he could still earn profits of his public office.
Trump is just using these avenues as he thrives on hate and racism. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t associate or defend these people. The man wouldn’t have ushered in these Executive Orders and made the policies as brutal during his term. As he would like ICE Agents to raid homes like the Gestapo and put kids in cages for profiteering companies to build makeshift camps for refugees and asylum-seekers. However, that is what has been done and that is why his favoured by racist within the Republic.
The ones who would like and endure a split of the Republic. To go back to the Confederacy and break the Union. So, that Trump could run the split Republic and be their sole-candidate. Be the Tin-Pot Dictator of the Republican South and rule the rural parts of America. Where he got the support. As that is the saving grace. They would enjoy to be run by a con, a scammer and liar-in-chief. That is their guy, because he deliver their racist backwards agenda.
This is why Trump is more dangerous than the Tea Party Movement. This is the extension and the hard-core base. The Qanon and armed militias trusting blindly in their “dear leader” and ride or die attitude, which even ends up in violent attacks on State Houses and threats of coup d’etat. Just like the ones that went after the Governor in Michigan. And the trying to seal the case with the Texas Attorney General petition to the Supreme Court. This is all using the powers and their stations to destroy Democracy from within and the Republican Party plays into it.
They are all following Trump and being led by his motives. His selfish and narrow-minded acts, which only serves him and his purpose. This man will feed into anything to possibly gain. Create fake culture-wars and spin all sort of conspiracy. It will be lizard-people, pizza-gates and whatnot. Without any proof and Alex Jones will play on the strings. Rush Limbaugh will sing his songs too. All of the Presidents Men will join in.
Therefore, the reactionary Tea Party Movement gave the world the likes of Ted Cruz, Matt Gaetz and Sarah Palin. However, what Trump will bring is much more. It will be even more fierce. If he will get a new party or a new movement. If he will bring a new TV station, which is more direct and insincere compared to Fox News. God knows, but if the Tea Party was a clue to 2020 and 2021.
Surely, that will be nothing compared to the masses that will join in the MAGA and “Stop The Steal” and whatnot now. These folks will be off the hinges and have no pity. These folks will not even conceal it and they have proven that. They have been allowed to thrive during this Presidency and will be much bigger danger in 2021 when Biden gets in-office.
Biden have to rule while these groups and while Trump vile them-up. There will be reactions and will be merciless means. Yes, the rallies and speeches now seems like rambling incoherent nonsense. However, that will not stop them. These folks will continue to battle, to confront and find means to get a return.
Trump will use this support for monetary gains and to be relevant. He will boost this as much as possible and use this as a stepping stone. Because, he needs some leafs of hope to cling-on too. Not that its anything good or positive for America as whole. Nevertheless, when has that ever been the case with this man? Never, right?
So, he just continues the negative spiral and wants to thrive on it. The GOP is playing along and letting him do so. We still don’t know the effects or if these will continue all through. However, the Tea Party built a momentum and made people’s careers. Why shouldn’t Trump do the same now. As he has been the President and can usher in his own. Even if it is despicable and disgusting as it gets. Because, there is where he has his base.
He will build something along the lines of Charles Lindberg and his America First Committee (AFC). That is where Trump belongs, the “alt-right” and white supremacists will all cling-on to that. This is his ball-park and where he can thrive. Be their leader and their patron.
That is how things seems and the lame-duck President is playing along to it. Especially, when its reported that he invited the “Proud Boys” to the White House. That says it all. He wants to find his space and get a pay-off like he always does. That is his motivation and his means to an end. There is nothing beautiful or sincere in this. Only a political bargain for his future. Which most likely is a weird and straight up knock-off of the Tea Party Movement with some sort of sprinkles of hate and racism. Peace.
The incumbent “strong-man” and Republican President Donald J. Trump seems to willing to trade the truth, the will of the people and everything else for one simple thing: Him staying in power. He is willing to let people lose their licenses to practice law in filing in fraudulent petitions to the courts. The President is willing to use sedition and forging a coup d’etat by triggering the electoral college his way.
That is the sort of man that speaks of rule of law and justice. The man that supposed to be righteous President of a Republic. A man whose willing to steal the election for his own favour. Where all the stacks of odds is against him. He has lost both the popular vote, which he has done twice and also the electoral college. In the same manner as he won in 2016. Therefore, he should take the loose on the chin and man-up for civilian life soon.
However, as a fake “strong-man” and a bunker-boy he wants to be the greatest ever. The man who is supposed to be winning, but ends up loosing. It is always about him. Nevertheless, he is willing to jeopardize institutions and rule of law. Just so he can reign supreme. Because this man needs leverage and needs help to salvage anything before it is over. This man has so many loans and huge debt to repay. Without the office, his estates and his companies might suffer hard. As well, he might be only President in living memory because of court orders not allowed to open an Foundation in his name. That is the sort of ordeal waiting for him in January 2021.
If Trump had a chance he would made a shot and taken away certification from the various of states. Just to undermine the elections and ensure that he could win. This is why his even trying to sway state legislators in swing states to appoint electors who will vote for him. That is a coup d’etat and rig the election in his favour.
That the Republicans are playing this game and using the lame-duck position to do this. Only shows how little they care about the value of the polls. They don’t care about the ballots. Playing with the will of the people for his own gains.
The White House should make it easier for the Biden Transition. Instead, it is working and postponing the ideal easy move of an new administration when Trump is over. We can clearly see that the Republicans doesn’t value the state, but the individual is more important. That one man is more important than the laws and the moral judgment of character. They should have started like Bush and Obama did when their terms was over. Instead, his petition courts, being dismissed and having erratic mismatched press conference to conceal the lack of evidence for the courts.
President Trump shows again that he doesn’t value the Republic. Trump and his team only values power and feeding its base with lies and deception. Seemingly there are people buying into it and they want to be conned.
This is their long-con … to trick the public and its supporters. However, in legal terms and within the reach of electoral laws. They got nothing. None. Zero. They are on a fishing expedition and cannot catch a single thing.
However, we are seeing that the “strong-man” isn’t capable to rig himself to second term. He warned that he wanted to do this. Playing with the legitimacy if he lost. That is what his doing and trying configure himself on the throne yet again. However, that shouldn’t work. He should fail and fall flat. Nevertheless, it shows that the institutions and the American democracy is super fragile and needs reforms. Because, it cannot be this easy for a ruthless and a reckless person like Trump to fiddle with it this easily. Peace.
For a President of the calibre of Donald J. Trump. He does not deserve pardon, neither is it righteous. To all the folks he has hurt in his time in office. The way the Trump Administration has operated and worked. It is only right that the head of that government acts accountable. For a man who has stifled any investigation and used the office to get away from prosecution.
Trump has stopped the Congress in their investigations, blocked witnesses and avoided to release documents and testify. The man knows his in the wrong. The White House has breached the Hatch Act so many times. The White House has used foreign policy to earn profits for the Trump Organization. The Trump estates and hotels has been places of trading policies over a secret meeting. While profiting on the business and the deals being made.
This President have issued harsh treatment of civilians, asylum-seekers and minorities. The President have shown no remorse and no concern in putting kids in cages and separating families. This man has had no issues breaching international law and human rights violations. Stop the ICC from investigating practices in Afghanistan. A President dropping bombs all the time in Somalia with no oversight.
Trump needs to answer for sins. The criminal activity, the ones where he has conspired with foreign entities and foreign operatives to ensure victory. The man needs to answer the usage of the office for own personal gains. That is necessary by all accounts. Unless, the US is fine with a open corruption and heist within the oval office. That is all up to them.
This man didn’t care if he traded Syrian bases and the Kurdish allies over a business deal in Turkey. That is what this President does and did it willingly. Giving his Trump Organization funding, while selling the stakes of American army abroad. That is what he has done. This is why he has a failed coup in Venezuela on his hands too. Where he even invited the wanted man on the throne at the State of the Union speech. This is how blatant the man operated.
Trump needs to answer for his misgivings, his lack of action and response to the COVID-19 and Coronavirus. There are so many cases and so many times he could have saved lives, but didn’t act. As the Commander-in-Chief. He could have sheltered more lives, but they weren’t important to him. If they were? He would have used enough of his power to install more Supreme Court justices. Because, he had the energy to do that…
Donald J. Trump needs to answer for his activity. Every action made during his tenure. The ill-will and the breaches of trust. The misuse of office and the corrupt activities done in broad daylight. As he was willing to trade the White House and Congress for some sweet dollars. That was his game. At the same time galvanise his supporters with White Supremacy and racist policies, which needs to be addressed now. Because, some of them will be a brunt on families for generations. Where the kids and parents are lost from each other and cannot live life together. That is all because of what Trump ordered and did.
As President, he was responsible for this. That is his legacy of how he treated people. How a President picked business interests over people’s security to have heath care insurance. That is the sort of man he is. If he has a heart? It is either for money or maybe Ivanka. The rest can sail their own boat. The people is useful to cheer him up, but can drown for all he cares. He wants titles and glories.
He can send the army and brutalize citizens for doing their legal duty of demonstrating. The man can use his office to dismantle and destroy people’s lives, because there is a buck for him in the end. That is the legacy of Trump. He is willing to trade lives over profit. Use foreign operatives to win elections and obstruct justice to overcome litigations.
This is why he needs to answer in the Courts of Law. That is why he needs to spend time to address petitions and cases pending. Why he needs to address the possible tax evasion, wire-fraud and whatever else awaiting him in the courts. Plus a possible of other investigations happening after his time in office. Because, that would be healthy and this time around he cannot block witnesses from testifying. Which he has done deliberately while he was in office.
President Trump doesn’t deserve to pardoned. If he gets pardoned, then you have forgotten about the kids in cages and the Zero Tolerance Policy. A policy he accepted and vouched for. Where he gave no mercy to asylum seekers. The same no mercy he deserves, as he enters the Courts of Law. That is justified and this man doesn’t deserve a bargain. He acted with haste to put other people’s lives in danger. It is time that he answers for that and also pays the price for doing so. Peace.
Without a shadow of a doubt the Democratic Party Presidential Candidate and now President-Elect Joe Biden has won the Presidential Election in 2020. This means that the United States will have another President, than Donald J. Trump from January 2021. Therefore, the man is now in shambles and shock. That’s why is erratic behaviour been worse sine the trickling in of results is not going his way. We can now see that his fall will be brutal.
It isn’t without a reason that he was impeached not to long ago. Secondly, that so many people around him was investigated, charged and indicted. The Trump Campaign of 2016 was filled with people who breached law and was convicted felons for doing so. That’s why the President cannot use a few more technicalities when his time in office is over.
Donald Trump doesn’t have the leverage of the Presidential Office. Which he and his close associates have used at a high rate. The Trump Organizations and the family members has used the Presidency to ensure deals, licences and other agreements to gain millions of dollars. The White House and the Trump Administration have also boosted the other family members and their possible trade agreements too. Even using foreign policy as a trading point to get millions siphoned into the Trump Organization. Therefore, the President loses a vital part of his business strategy. However, I am calling this piece losing leverage.
Trump has less of leverage to pay of loans, fines and litigation costs. The President has to answer to cases pending and awaiting. As the Trump Organization and other connected business are looked into.
Donald Trump is losing not only leverage to salvage his companies and cough up dough to failing businesses. He is losing the “Executive Privilege” which he has used exponentially. That he has used to block people from testifying and also said as President he would be to busy to participate in cases he was involved in. Still, he would have time to visit his estates and golf courses, but not had the time … to answer these cases.
So without leverage and executive privilege the Donald J. Trump will not be as powerful as his been the last four years. He has thwarted things, stifled and let things pending. If the Washington D.C. wants the stench of corruption, international interference and possible breaches of criminal codes done by associates of the President. They should get involved, investigate and get the truth all out. Because, there been enough of shady actions made, which has benefited the President and his allies. These has earned fortunes on using the state as cash-cow. That cannot just be brushed under rug. Now that his not President anymore. He needs to answer to this.
Especially, since he got no Executive Privilege and Leverage to linger on. He has gotten away with it for years. However, now the Tax Returns can be released. The Trump Organization and their businesses can be exposed. This is why they are struggling to cope with the new reality. Because, they have no way to save it.
Now, there is time to unravel it all. The most corrupt President in a long time. The one making Harding look like saint. The man proving that you can actually put the White House sale and trade bargains with everyone. As long as he gets a cut. That is the man that President Trump was and is. A man who has to answer for all of this. Time will tell and we can only smell the coffee. Peace.
White AmeriKKKa is clearly not enough for the incumbent President Donald J. Trump. Who is slowly losing to challenger Joe Biden. The ruling party and the ones who had all houses in Congress. Are now soon only left with the Senate. They had all branches of government, but because of unpopularity. He has lost everything except one.
Yes, the judiciary is changed by all the judges, which has been appointed with haste from the Supreme Court down to lower courts in the states. The President have worked on overtime with the legislators to push it through the House of Representatives and the Senate. That is why the Republicans are fearing what is happening.
Their autocrat, big-man in office is losing. Little by little … his losing to Biden. It is just a few more delegates to the Electoral College before the Presidency is lost. Instead of being the Commander-in-Chief dropping bombs over Baghdad and Somalia. He will go back to struggling debts, losing relevancy, court cases and investigations into his firms. Therefore, the President is not only losing office, but his leverage.
That is why his so erratic, the old man knows this. His racist behaviour and lack of moral judgement haven’t saved him. It has galvanized his supporters, but haven’t covered all bases. The party have gotten more than the White voters, but that is key to his political base. This is why Proud Boys, KKK and other violent right-wing radical groups are behind the President. These together with evangelical Christians, because he served their mission on their conservative causes.
Still, that isn’t enough to save him. The deliberate acts of Trumpism. The Muslim Ban, Border-wall and the tax-breaks for the rich isn’t enough. The President cannot save his office. He has lost in the battle with a pandemic. The incompetence of this administration in combination of nepotism and graft in office haven’t served him well in public.
It’s been four dark years and it’s not yet over. The President have been more pre-occupied with his own narcissist needs, than actually governing. He has spent so much time on his properties. That nearly one third of the time he played golf or was living lavish on the public’s dime.
Trump could order the army on the streets to stop Black Lives Matters protests, but was cheering on right-wing militias taking over the Capitol of Michigan. Even not speaking ill of the ones who was planning to kidnap the Governor of Michigan and such. Because, that is going against his own radical right-wing base. This why Qanon and others are also keen followers of the President.
The President gave the Alt-Right and the Confederacy a voice. Instead of debunking and dismissing it. Trump thrived on it and coined himself by these folks. So, even if his losing. This part of AmeriKKKa will not go away after being so prominent and even having a messenger in the White House. The President gave them a voice by appointing Stephen Bannon and Stephen Miller who are the likes who has worked for these values.
A man who wants to use legal means against his opposition. Use the Department of Justice to detain and make cases against his opponents. A man who has no trouble using force against demonstrators. A man who praised dictators, but spoke ill of democratic elected leaders across the world.
Trump is the strong-man, who never was strong, but weak. He could be brash and macho, but go into hiding if he was pushed. The President wanted internal conflict and easily fired staff. He didn’t build, but was working hard to destroy. Create uncertainty and misuse his office. This is why the things that made it possible. Is also the reasons why his losing. Instead of creating things, he was busy destroying. He hopes that he had destroyed faith in the system and working to undermine the election system.
Trump is a losing autocrat. Who couldn’t hold power. That is the betterment of society, but he has opened can of worms you cannot get back into the box. The President have left a scar and wounds, which needs time to heal. That is up the to the public to either steer this way or neglect it. The truth is that society and the state needs to reflect on the values he ushered into power. Using the means of office to get them to upper echelon. Weaponize usage of asylum and seeking refuge, also the way he addressed immigrants. That got to be addressed and fixed.
Trump wanted to be a dictator and earn the spoils of office without working for it. Now, his losing it all and his legacy will remain. Trumpism will remain as a factor. What he exposed and delivered in office will not be gone over night. The US government and policies have to be altered and will take time. There is always hope…
Trump is now a lame duck until Biden is sworn-in. We can wonder how he will act and do. What we do know. He would love to reign for life, but the public have kicked him out. Peace.
I know, the world is a crazy place in 2020. Where the soon up-coming elections is happening in November 2020. This is vital and important. Not only for the American public, but for the stakeholders of the Trump Organization and President Donald J. Trump.
The expose of the amounts of debt circulating in the Trump Organization is the overshadow of his campaign. Trump will have mature loans, which needs to be paid, because they are due on several of properties and other personal loans too. This is maybe why he has coined himself the King of Debt.
Not, only has he not to profitable business, estates and golf courses. However, the President has earned the most on licensing deals and not on real estate. That has been the reality of the business deals of late. This being both abroad and elsewhere. That the Trump Organization has earned millions of dollars on these transactions and deals.
The Trump Organization have had big payments from foreign dignitaries and companies happening because of the Presidents office. Since, he has the political office and has been the Head of State. This has made people live in his Hotel in Washington D.C. and used his other properties. Become tenants on his properties and possibly pay an overprice to be in the good graces.
This is a sort of sale of the White House and the Presidency. Because, the President and his business needs spenders to run. To be able to get through and have enough funds to operate.
It is bad enough that a supposed billionaire and a wealthy person on Manhattan, New York have paid nickel and dimes in taxes over the years. That he has possibly given one audit to the IRS and another to investors. This is to trick the numbers to ensure the best outcome at any given day. Instead of giving the real numbers and true value of the business at any given time.
If the loans and the debts are so bad as the media states. Then his “empire” and his businesses needs leverage to get through. He needs something to bargain the creditors and get other investors to bail him out. He cannot live on a prayer and hope his other family members hit a strike of gold. Since, they are leeching on to the business and continuing the enterprise. Just like he did. They are all moochers of this system and enlarging their names by being connected to it.
Therefore, the only way he can save this by date and by the maturity of the loans. To seal the debt and have a positive outcome. Is to actually get foreigners to bail him out and give them favourable policies. Trade foreign policies for deals, which enrich the President and saves his fledging company.
That makes sense and seems like a enterprise he would join. He will act like Republican and sing songs of “conservativism” or fake that. Just so he can trade policies for business deals. To save his own ass and by the skin of the teeth. That is his leverage. Because, his businesses and the ways operating needs this sort of play to get traction.
Since, the incumbent need the gravy train coming. Especially ahead of the mature loans, which is coming his way. If not he has restructure the loans and find ways to get liabilities moving. Even sell other estates to cover the payments needed.
Yes, this is bribing a public official and open bazaar corruption. However, that has been his game since he went into office. He has used the office to enrich himself and gain profits for his businesses.
Now that we know how dire things is… we can imagine that the old man doesn’t want to lose his leverage. The one bargain chip that makes sense and make dollars. Not that he can trade on his name or character after four years in office. Unless, he wants to sell merchandise to White Supremacist, Alt-Right, Qanon and the KKK. Peace.
For someone living on image and on PR. What the New York Times piece did to President Donald J. Trump. They shattered the glass, they broke not only a story, but broke a fragile, piss poor businessman and shown his true character.
President Trump have lived on a lie. That his Trump Organization was a giant conglomerate. A corporation with many ties, a hectic financial structure and a supposed viable real-estate portfolio. Alas, that is clearly not the case.
His businesses like so many cases in the past is practically bankrupt. His living on a loans, rates for licencing deals and hallow points of extortions of the properties he does have. This isn’t a viable business and the model of profits is on idea that he can offer them something. That is why he has had favourable foreign dignitaries on his properties. It all makes sense now.
That Trump is morally bankrupted has been known. His a despicable racist-in-charge. It has been proven time and time again. Trump has proven that he doesn’t care about others or only does it when it has favours him. Also, if they possibly have liabilities or leverage over him. Then he might bend rules or regulations to ensure he gets the cut he needs. So, these things can possibly go away.
If the Saudis have paid him money. I am sure he will do their dance. Surely, through several of shady loan to the Trump Organization. The Organization possibly own “Moscow money” and that’s why he sings show-tunes to them. The Ohio Gang and President Harding created a lot of scandals because of their financial ties back-then. If they could that, what would the finances and fiscal character of this President do?
I believe he would do whatever it takes to get from red to black. The President would ditch international agreements, destroy ties with other countries and change the balances of power within a war. Just to ensure his estates and his accounts are saved. He doesn’t want to sell the Trump Tower. The President doesn’t want to loose his golf-courses or several of hotels. That will hurt his pride and his business acumen, which is clearly not stellar. This we know, because of all of his bankrupties in the past.
President Trump hasn’t only tricked the taxes and possibly broken various of statutes, which is the reason for the audits of his taxes. The reason why the Attorney General of the Southern District of New York (SDNY) have filed cases and is investigating the President and his Organizations.
This all make sense. The man can be bought, because he has nothing. The man wanted to be branded as a rich billionaire! While he was broke and carrying water over his head. This is why he cannot loose the office. Because, he needs the office and the powers of it. That gives him leverage and the abilities to please both his creditors and get foreign dignitaries to bankroll his businesses. This is misuse of his office, but that is the only way he can fix his failing corporations. That is really not ‘The Apprentice’ style, but more the broke broker who is high on his own supply. Looking for the next deal to fix the former failing deal.
Who knew Harding could be run circles around by someone like Trump? Trump is misusing the office to save his ass. The President apparently needs the office to save his business. He is neither rich nor smart. The man can easily become someone’s donkey, because they are giving him the carrot and the stick. The whole motivation for his actions can be to save his “empire”, which is burdened by loans and lack of revenue. That is also the reason for why the IRS Tax Forms never was released into the public in the first place. Where the supposed “billionaire” didn’t pay much or little, to no taxes for years.
Some would call what the President has done using Foreign Policy to cover his businesses, loans and lack of taxes as a racket. I could see that too and wouldn’t be shocked if he did. Because, the man doesn’t have scruples, but wants to save his failing enterprises. While he can use the Office and the Government to salvage the hurt. That is maybe why he has stayed so many days at his estates as the President. To cover more expenses and ensure profits to the bankrupt Trump Organization.
He owns $421 million in loans and $100 million in penalties to the IRS, which means there is enough motives to do what he does in office. He needs salvage and what else can he do than trade Foreign Policy for Financial Favours. That is very simple to equate and makes sense.
President Trump is broke and needs a windfall, but first he needs to answer to the SDNY and other pending cases. Which been looking into him… for various of reasons. This “empire” will fall and his businesses will crumble, unless he has some oligarchs bailing him out. Peace.
