President Trump Loves Money

July 12, 2019

Today’s  impromptu press conference with President Trump and Labor Secretary Acosta was appalling  for three reasons:

1) there was no vetting of Acosta before being chosen as Labor Secretary;

2) unless I heard wrong, Trump didn’t interview him before that appointment and

3) President Trump should have cut him loose when the Epstein scandal broke.

Perhaps more appalling was Trump’s expression of thanks for the Court ruling on the Emolument clause because he was giving up a big income in order to serve as President and income from the Trump hotel in DC made up for that!

This President is so driven by material interests that his statement raises concerns that American foreign policy may be driven by the material interests of his former company.

The Moscow effort to obtain a hotel concession while running for office is the most egregious example.
