Donald Trump just used his presidential power to advertise L.L. Bean.
Trump endorses L.L. Bean after founder's granddaughter donates.
Trump says buy LL Bean — but many products are made in China.
It was just revealed that LL Bean or the grand daughter who sits on the Board donated between $30k and $60k to a Trump Super PAC.
In return for their "support", Trump used the Office of the Presidency (President-elect) to tweet an advertisement for the company...
After the donation was revealed, one group called for a boycott of LL Bean. So it could be argued that Trump was trying to counter the calls for a boycott.
But even he has to realize the OBVIOUS conflict of interest, doesnt he?
Is he really this stupid or does he simply not care?
You have to ask the same question regarding his appointments of industry insiders to key positions within his administration...
