Trump greatly over-exaggerates his own net worth. He went on record in the 90's as being nearly a trillion dollars in debt to the banks.
Trump doesn't need to be bought because he already was a decade or two ago. He's paying back his benefactors for his fame and fortune. He's playing his part just like Obama was.

Autopsy of a Dead Coup
By Victor Davis Hanson| February 17th, 2019
If anyone here is still a conspiracy theorist, then this is a must-read.
For the first time (that I'm aware of) someone has detailed the timeline from election until know, naming all the players in the attempted coup d'etat of Donald Trump.
I know there are those who will immediately skoff at this.
But for those of you who (not necessarily support Trump) but believe that there was a true attempt to oust a sitting president, then I recommend you read this.
an exerpt. . . . . .
The Palace Coup
All of the above came to a head with the firing of the chronic leaker FBI Director James Comey (who would lie to the president about his not being a target of an FBI investigation, lie to House investigatory committees by pleading amnesia and ignorance on 245 occasions, and repeatedly lie to his own FBI bureaucrats).
In May 2017, acting FBI director Andrew McCabe took over from the fired Comey. His candidate wife recently had been a recipient of huge Clinton-related campaign PAC donations shortly before he began investigating the Clinton email scandal. McCabe would soon be cited by the Inspector General for lying to federal investigators on numerous occasions—cynically stooping even to lie to his own New York FBI subordinates to invest scarce resources to hunt for their own nonexistent leaks as a mechanism for disguising his own quite real and illegal leaking.
The newly promoted McCabe apparently felt that it was his moment to become famous for taking out a now President Trump. Thus, he assembled a FBI and DOJ cadre to open a counterintelligence investigation of the sitting president on no other grounds but the fumes of an evaporating Clinton opposition dossier and perceived anger among the FBI that their director had just been fired. In addition, apparently now posing as Andrew McCabe, MD, he informally head counted how many of Trump’s own cabinet members could be convinced by McCabe’s own apparent medical expertise to help remove the president on grounds of physical and mental incapacity under the 25th Amendment. This was an attempted, albeit pathetic, coup against an elected president and the first really in the history of the United States.
At one point, McCabe claims that the acting Attorney General of the United States Rod Rosenstein volunteered to wear a wire to entrap his boss President Trump—in the manner of Trump’s own attorney Michael Cohen’s entrapment of Trump, in the manner of James Comey taking entrapment notes on confidential Trump one-on-one meetings and leaking them to the press, and in the manner of the Department of Justice surveilling Trump subordinates through FISA and other court authorizations.
McCabe was iconic of an utterly corrupt FBI Washington hierarchy, which we now know from the behavior of its disgraced and departed leadership. They posed as patriotic scouts, but in reality proved themselves arrogant, smug, and incompetent. They harbored such a sense of superiority that they were convinced they could act outside the law in reifying an “insurance policy” that would end the Trump presidency.
The thinking of the conspirators initially had been predicated on three assumptions thematic during this three-year long government effort to destroy Trump:
There have been many threads that have hinted and even openly exposed certain portions of this.
But this is the full picture.

You honestly think Trump is beating those in power and that the best those in power have is a smear campaign that isn't even working? Lol.

When your own people are contemplating removing you from office, that is a symptom of incompetence from the President. It is too bad they failed but it wont matter in 2020. I voted for dickhead and I will be fixing my fallacy next go around.
