Trump Has Received Money from 22 Foreign Governments

Source: PoliticalWire


June 12, 2019 at 7:25 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

“Representatives of at least 22 foreign governments appear to have spent money at Trump Organization properties, an NBC News review has found, hinting at a significant foreign cash flow to the American president that critics say violates the U.S. Constitution.”

“The extent and amount of foreign spending at Trump’s hotels, golf clubs and restaurants is not known, because the Trump Organization is a private company and declines to disclose that information.”

3. Well, he put it in an open trust and his brother Billy drove it into debt. Regardless, he did not

violate the emoluments clause by using his position as President to make money for himself and his family members through his businesses. This asshole does it openly -- and gets away with it because of the GO Grifter P.

4. I wonder ...

what will happen to the Trump Organization financially when he is out of office? I suspect that the foreign governments' patronage will decrease drastically, golf club memberships will tank, plus the Trump brand is losing marketability daily. I guess he'll take all the money out he can and bankrupt it.

What will the grifter-in-chief do after that? Perhaps he could retire to North Korea to hang with his BFF Kim and write his memoirs?

10. You know what he'll do.

He'll file for bankruptcy, same as always. Privatize the profits, socialize the losses. It's why wealthy people stay wealthy. Of course all of Trump's wealth was inherited, as is 35-45% of all wealth in the U.S.. As a businessman he pretty much sucks ass.

11. I am sure he is stuffing money into foreign banks

That racist crowd he brought with him to D.C. probably doesn't want to see him appear desolate particularly compared to his black predecessor.

12. And running the money into tax avoidant schemes

because under red don, the IRS has been politicized to such a degree that it will never look into his scams.

5. And he sits there like Scrooge McDuck....

Chortling evilly under his fat induced labored breath...”What cha gonna do bout it? “...while he counts his ever growing mountain of emoluments.

And on cue there is the collective “He’s right, what are we going to do about it?”

7. This presidency gig

is the most lucrative scam he has ever pulled in his entire corrupt life. Everything is free, for his "kids" too. Vacations in the UK, spending taxpayer money. No wonder he is fighting to keep the "job". Fraud runs wild in the gop. Long past time that something is done about this. Putin sure knew what he was doing, "fixing" the voting machines, with help from McConnell and the rest of the clowns in the gop. They all helped Vlad destroy this country, for a few rubles. TRAITORS every last one.

9. It's not just money from foreign governments going in his pocket

but every time he stays--with or without entourage--at one of his properties, taxpayer $$ are going in HIS pocket for the expense of the stay. The expenses of his staff, Secret Service, etc. to stay at one of his properties are being paid to his organization.

It's one giant con.

Boy, there are some stupid people in this country. He never should have been sworn in, and it shouldn't even be close in 2020 if people will wise up and get out and vote for the Dem.

15. You are so right

It's all a con for him and his entire grifter family.

I believe he will be voted out next year, because we Dems will be smart enough to choose an excellent candidate. But not only that, a lot of people will vote AGAINST Chump next year even if they aren't for the Dem candidate. We need to get out the vote and ride the anti-Chump wave that has already started.

17. SHOCKED

that this asshole is a crook and has been his entire life.
What is the shocker is that this was all publically know!
In fact the idiot acknowledged the truth on T.V. but voted for the dumb ass anyway. Like he was going to be Robbin' Hood for the everyone. Well, some got richer while the rest of got royally screwed.

18. He should be made to...

...pay triple what he made from the position he holds in OUR government to the Treasury , and made an example of for others , and consequences that would prevent future presidents for doing that.

19. In isolation this is just giving the governor a harrumph

If we want to nail Trump to the walk with this - and if we can firm this up to the point it’s actionable, not even the Trump-fellating Senate will be able to ignore it - we have got to have Trump’s business records so we can prove he’s selling influence. I know he’s doing it, but you can’t impeach, convict, criminally convict and sentence to be fed to man-eating sharks anyone unless you can PROVE criminality.

22. Nothing will be done. His support is where it was when he was inaugurated.

It doesn't matter how many stories about the criminality, greed, and dishonesty come out about Trump, nothing happens. This isn't the America we knew. We have lost our nation.
