Just today I noticed the theory again, popular in 2016, how Trump is rich therefore he cant be bought and that makes him a lucrative political player for us plebs. Well it turns out that very year he was in fact bought by (for one) Sheldon Adelson.

Recall another key Trump selling point for many of us:


Trump had run for office as a noninterventionist, with the slogan “America First.” “He quite honestly had very little interest in meddling in the Middle East in general and very little interest from a philosophical point of view,” a Trump confidant told me. As far as Trump was concerned, “all of this was an annoyance.” He went on, “ ‘The Sunnis, the Shias, the Jews, the Palestinians have been doing this for thousands of years, and I, Donald Trump, am not going to continue to add to the already outrageous investment of trillions of dollars in a region that breeds and funds terrorists against America while we starve our infrastructure investments at home!’” www.newyorker.com...


Then came the US Embassy move in Jerusalem, which triggered outcry for obvious reasons:


Trump 'most Zionist, least understanding' president
An American political scientist slammed President Donald Trump on Tuesday over his indifference to the issues the Palestinian people are exposed to.

Speaking at a panel organized by the Arab Center, a Washington-based think tank, Georgetown University Professor Michael Hudson said Trump is "the most Zionist and least understanding" president when it comes to the Palestinian cause.

Hudson also said Trump would get the worst grade out of any U.S. president for handling it.

The U.S. intends to officially relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14 to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel’s establishment in 1948 -- an event Palestinians refer to as the “Nakba” or “Great Disaster”, when more than 700,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes.

Trump sparked an international outcry last December when he unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and vowed to relocate Washington's embassy to the city.


So how much does it cost to buy Trump? In this case $25 million:


On September 23, Adelson announced a $25 million donation to Trump's presidential campaign, as part of a $65 million donation to the Republican electoral campaign for 2016. This makes Adelson by far the biggest donor in either party (Republicans or Democrats) in the 2016 election cycle.
en.wikipedia.org...


And here is Trump playing puppet or it:


Why does Donald Trump want to move the US embassy in Israel?

Moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem could set off a geopolitical earthquake, as Sky's Dominic Waghorn explains.​​​​​​​

Trump has long championed the causes of those on the hard-right of Israeli politics.

Not least because they have supported him. Take Las Vegas casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson - a passionate supporter of radical Jewish settler groups in Jerusalem.

He gave a cool $35 million to groups supporting Trump's election campaign, which bought him a seat on the platform among former presidents for Trump's inauguration.

He has been said to be furious at Trump's delays in moving the embassy.

Jerusalem's status has not been settled because negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians have never reached a final agreement.

Both sides claim it as their capital, so if America puts its Israeli embassy in Jerusalem it would be recognising it as Israel's capital.

That would be seen as taking sides and that could fatally undermine its role as an honest, neutral broker. news.sky.com...


So was it $25 million for that embassy move, or does Sheldon Adelson get a lot more for that money as in bending Trump every time he says "jump"? Now that Trump's a politician, seems pretty obvious now how that will play out...

Anyone who looks into Trump's campaign managers (David Bossie's) history will know exactly where Trump's loyalty lies, in his friends the ultra-rich.

Trillion dollar permanent tax cut? Billions in weapons sold to terrorists in Saudi Arabia? Anyone?

Oh wait, the media says mean things about him, all of his establishment ties don't matter, he's being "persecuted". Lol. That's the look they were going for when they began their scripted all-out assault on him.

Years in the making, the partisan wool has been pulled over our eyes.

The person who wins the presidency is indebted to the donors, that happens on both sides of the party line. Hillary really pissed off her donors because she more or less promised them she would win so they threw money at her. We need to fix this problem, it is a cancer in our society....Hillary owed way more favors than Trump did.

Lots of people wanted that.

If you are going to put forth a conspiracy theory that a particular person bought the president you can't link an artical saying that said person is angry his new property is moving to slow.

"Sheldon Adelson get a lot more for that money as in bending Trump every time he says "jump"?" ... clearly not.

No she didn't. Trump went on record saying that he owed "billions" of dollars in debt to the banks in the 90's. He is repaying his debts to those in power in exchange for decades of his fame and fortune.

No one gets into the oval office unless those in power approve it. The whole "underdog" and "outsider" schtick surrounding Trump has been used to great effect. His followers are again trusting the system and ignoring all the establishment moves Trump has made.

The media complained about him taking two scoops of ice cream instead of one so that means those moves are justified. The bread and circus playing out in the media is distracting people from the moves he has made that are against the best interest of those who are not billionaires.

Um, quit acting like that citation you responded to was yesterday and this is year 2021:


President Donald Trump signed the embassy waiver on June 1, 2017. The White House meanwhile stated that it did not represent a weakening of his support for Israel. It added that he stood by his promise of moving the embassy.[9] On June 5, 2017, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of reunification of Jerusalem by 90-0. The resolution reaffirmed the Jerusalem Embassy Act and called upon the President and all United States officials to abide by its provisions.[6]

On December 6, 2017, President Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and ordered the State Department to begin planning for the relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.[8] However, following the announcement, Trump signed an embassy waiver again, delaying the funding cuts as mandated by the Act, by at least six months. wiki


His first year was "America FIRST" yeah??!?!?!?!?!?

Maybe Trump should release his tax returns? That would silence anyone saying he was paid by special interests.

Unfortunately Trump's supporters justify his shadyness at every turn. He's so "transparent" yet won't release something every other president before him released.

Maybe do a "Double Header" and do a Pay-Per-Click on Twitter™ and reveal tax returns and for the grande finale Obama's Birth Certificate, or maybe I have My dwerpers mixed-up, wasn't it Herr Drumpf who knew a guy who knew a guy that could get the goods?


Someone should also tweet Herr Donald that there is already a wall, all He has to do is turn Twitter™ off for 4 min. and watch "Border: Live" That is if You can get Him off binge watching TheApprentice™

And imagine someone like that is running this country better than any other President in the last fifty years. Issues that need to be dealt with are front and center.

Yeah, Saudi Arabia REALLY needed those military grade weapons, they have terrorists to arm. The ultra-rich also REALLY needed that trillion dollar permanent tax break, how else would they have kept the lights on?

America first!***




***unless we're talking about Saudi Arabia, Israel or any of those people rigging our political system against the average American
