I have always believed that Trump will go down in history as the most corrupt president EVER. This is just one more example. But here’s the bigger question: Who sets ethical standards for Presidents? Why aren’t there ethics standards already in place? He continues to rake in profits from his DC hotel, he charges the US Government for his trips to Mar-a-Lago (which are costing the taxpayers a fortune), he refuses to release his tax returns, and has publicly stated that he is immune from ethical requirements that he divest, even though all modern presidents have.
Add this to the secrecy around Trump’s health. All we know is one letter from a buffoon M.D. stating that Trump will be the healthiest president, EVER. We, the public. should be entitled to know the status of a president’s health. PERIOD. Today, the president goes in for his physical. Will any of the details be made public?
In the time of monarchial rule, every morning when the king arose he was required to relieve himself (#1 and #2) in front of his ministers and the royal doctor who would examine the king’s urine and feces and pronounce him “healthy.”
Given what we have seen with this administration, I hope we see some changes.
Trump sold $35M in real estate in 2017, mostly to secretive buyers
President Trump’s companies sold more than $35 million in real estate in 2017, mostly to secretive shell companies that obscure buyers’ identities, continuing a dramatic shift in his customers’ behavior that began during the election, a USA TODAY review found.
In Las Vegas alone, Trump sold 41 luxury condo units in 2017, a majority of which used limited liability companies – corporate entities that allow people to purchase property without revealing all of the owners’ names.
The trend toward Trump’s real estate buyers obscuring their identities began around the time he won the Republican nomination, midway through 2016, according to USA TODAY’s analysis of every domestic real estate sale by one of his companies.
In the two years before the nomination, 4% of Trump buyers utilized the tactic. In the year after, the rate skyrocketed to about 70%. USA TODAY’s tracking of sales shows the trend held firm through Trump’s first year in office.
