Trump is the swamp

Posted9/16/2019 1:00 AM

Foreign governments, Republican PACs and congressional Republicans are spending millions at Trump's hotel in Washington. AG Barr decides to have a party at the same hotel, the tab being $30,000.

VP Mike Pence chooses to stay at a Trump resort 180 miles from his conference in Dublin. It appears that the entire hotel was booked for Pence at taxpayer expense.


Now the military is involved. At least one supply mission from Alaska to Kuwait, which normally stops at military bases in Europe to refuel, was redirected to a private airport in Scotland a dozen miles away from Trump's golf resort. The crews were directed to stay at the resort.

These are not isolated incidents, but a pattern of greed that is a clear violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution. The guy's a crook, and he's making patsies out of his supporters. The sooner he's gone, the better.
