Does Donald Trump work for America, for Russia, or for Donald Trump??

There is very little that we know about the "counter-intelligence" investigation.

In foreign policy, does Donald Trump work for America?

Or does he work for Russia and his other foreign interests?

Or does he work for Donald Trump?

Is he compromised by some foreign adversary?

Is it really in America's interests to build nuclear power plants across Saudi Arabia and the Middle East? There have been suspicions since before the meeting in the Seychelles with Erik Prince and the Russian oligarch.

Is Donald Trump working for America's interests in North Korea? Or is Russia attempting some sort of geo-political balance with China, a long-time ally of North Korea? It did raise eyebrows when Kim Jong Un rode a train to Vladivostok this week to meet with Vladimir Putin? Also, it was suspicious that the Russian Prime Minister, Lavrov, was reportedly in Hanoi when Trump had his aborted summit with Kim?

There are many questions still lingering about the butchering of the Washington Post journalist, Khashoggi, by a group of assassins led by the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, who happens to be a good friend of Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law.

He still maintains his dual Towers in Turkey and that raises questions about whose interests he is supporting in that part of the world?

There are still many questions about Mr Trump that have yet to be answered.

1. I suspect he is primarily motivated by self-preservation

I mean, greed and the need for attention, at the bottom of it all, but as far as "who does he work for?" I would think in his mind, it would be himself.

In the public-facing office of POTUS, he seems to basically do the bidding of Russia, so in that sense he works for the oligarchs (and this is probably true in a more general sense too; he and the GOP in general serve the interests of the wealthy as a matter of policy--that's their basic platform. So, in that sense, he works for Capital.

My opinion is that he couldn't give a single hair on a rat's ass about America; not in the sense of the continent itself and all its natural resources, the people who live on it, nor the concept of the United States and the Constitution that sets forth its principles.

As far as the counterintelligence measures that anyone may be taking, who knows? Whose interests to the U.S. intelligence agencies really serve? I'd think at the root of it, the same bunch--the wealthy. But maybe there are some true patriots who actually take their oath of office seriously and are taking active steps to fight back against foreign attempts to weaken and compromise our nation.

I have to say, if I were in charge of the situation, I'd probably want to keep the bastard right where he is (opening multi-pronged investigations, obviously, which I think actually is happening already with SDNY and hopefully with some more forceful oversight actions by congress)...but I would try to turn him, or manipulate him...feed the Russians a bunch of bullshit. Just treat him like any other asset...take advantage of him and use him as a weapon against our adversaries. This would of course be a very delicate matter with respect to the "I-word," and would involve a certain degree of...erm..."extra-legal" activities, but hey, you know, these are not normal times.

4. I don't think America makes the top 100, if it makes the list at all

And the same goes for the vast majority of Republicans

3. Trump is by the Trump, for the Trump, and about the Trump

I think is so inherently vane and selfish he couldn't work towards someone else's interests even if he wanted to.

5. Trump

Lies saying he works for America, Denies working for Russia but lies and is, and is desperate for cash so everything else he does he tries to skim money from it for himself. Trump's a career corrupt con man and criminal, and a serial liar so he'll never be honest or truthful, and why he attacks the truth and those that tell it.

7. Always Donald Trump. Thinks he's using Russia, China, NK, SA, and Turkey to accomplish that.

Eventually he will find out that they are using him.

8. I would have thought you could stop after "Does Donald Trump work?"

And then just answer "no."

9. I think he's batshit nuts and works primarily to prove to his father he isn't the loser

his father saw him as.

It's fucking Citizen Kane. The thing he craves more than anything is love, but he has no capacity to love or possibly be lovable.

12. I think he has opened the door to foreign influence

like never before. I imagine many in the intelligence community are confused about what their job actually is. Are they there to protect the oligarchs as somebody mentioned above. I think he does work for himself basically. He does not care about America or the constitution. He does not care about rule of law.
