But aren't you being unusually forgiving of his not cutting ties with his own businesses and using the Presidency to enhance his family brand and line his pockets.... and install rich cronies in government positions?
I happen to believe he has divested from his businesses... in a more thorough fashion that was requested.
As far as his family and 'cronies' profiting from his actions, when in history has that not happened?
I see nothing in this administration that is unusual or dangerous to the country in that respect, and honestly cannot think of a way for family or close friends of any administration to not profit in some way.
Trump did make a black mark with me over the Internet privacy regulation, and I thought his idea of a health-care plan was ridiculous.
On the other hand the regulations on coal plants may be excessive. I know many regulations are such in a de facto sense, intended to criminalize an activity without actual passage of a law due to economic concerns.
Until he loses my trust... Trump hasn't lost my trust yet.
Keep on believing that the wealthy will empower you to be wealthier.
The wealthy didn't become so by sharing their wealth with you or empowering you to make more wealth.
You are a pawn for them to milk more wealth for themselves from.
I don't know about that.
Having more money can make things easier
I certainly wouldn't turn down a billion dollars if it were offered
You know, don't you, that various reports say he hasn't.
I think we're talking about different concepts of 'profiting'.
Chelsea didn't have a White House office
I don't think you'll admire his tax plan, either.
tax laws for corporations will change so that they only have to pay 15% instead of the current 35%
They're on emissions. You might not have lived near a coal plant or seen the impact of coal mining. I'm old enough that I have (you should google it if you're not familiar with it.)
I think this is true of most Trump supporters. I find it interesting.
