'While the Rest of the World Burned,' Billionaires Made More Money in 2017 Than Any Other Year in History

1. Gross corruption, greed, and men in power stealing the wealth of their nations.

 

Something has to give for the sake of the millions suffering. Putin was able to rob Russia blind. Trump is doing the same thing here for his buddies. Those tax breaks are protection money and it' working for them.

2. Welcome to DU.

Putin is Trump's hero. And the ignorance of the average Trump voter allows these voters to be easily led.
