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 Vov.com:
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.
