Trump Wants America to Be His Newest Business Acquisition for Personal Gain

Despot, Tyrant, Dictator, Oppressor, Czar, Potentate, et al
(Take your pick – all these labels fit)

Believe it not, however the evidence is compelling Trump wants America to be his newest business acquisition. Look back and see here with this short introduction from

Mitt Romney said during his 2012 presidential campaign he’d like a provision in the Constitution “… to say that the president has to spend at least three years working in business before he could become president of the United States.”

Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner parroted this theme in an interview this March: “We should have excellence in government … The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens.”

Nevertheless, a big part of Donald Trump’s appeal as a presidential candidate was that he was going to bring his “on time and under budget” philosophy to Washington. He was going to run the country like a business.

So far it hasn’t worked [and] at nearly every turn, Trump has undermined his own agenda.

His administration is failing precisely because Trump is running the country like he ran many of his businesses – that’s why so many failed as seen in this chart with more info here.

More here from TPM that is quite astonishing story and detailed timeline of Trump: The Lawless President – who is clearly bent on reshaping America.

My 2 cents: Now only to reshape the country in his own image but in a very ugly image. The result he seeks it to be a one-man operation – that will be managed by and for his top wealthy cronies who will serve as his board with him as the CEO –unable to be fired or replaced.

Their business motto: “We are now: Government of the wealthy, by the wealthy, and for the wealthy” They now called “Trump’s Plutocracy” – which was formerly known as Trump Empire, Inc. And we open for business.” Finally, the evidence is compelling for all Americans as Kushner said we are: “The Trump customers” – and he country is Trump’s “newest and latest business acquisition.”

So, how much longer can we the people collectively tolerate this abuse in the name of Trump’s ego and insanity, for surely that is precisely what we are dealing with at this point in time, and it’s ugly.

GOPers talk all the time about: “We are doomed due to the DEMS, etc., etc., yada, yada, yap, yap –

I say: Look in the nearest mirror to see the real problem.

P.S.  GOPers are not the solution, either. Their failures are historically long, but under Trump will seem infinitesimal by the time he is done.

Tyrants and dictators and despots with their oligarchy firmly in hand tend to rule that way – their way or no way.

Thanks for stopping by.
