Here Are the Ways Trump Cashes In on Being President (UGH)
Cheat ^ | 7/5/208 | Cheat

When candidate Donald Trump said he was gong to “drain the swamp,” most people thought it meant he would stop corruption in Washington D.C. That means limiting access of lobbyists, curbing deals with foreign governments, and refusing to profit off the White House.

Well, that never happened. In fact, since Trump got to D.C., America has seen an unprecedented attack on presidential ethics. We’ve witnessed Trump campaign donors get cushy White House jobs, Goldman Sachs bankers write the GOP tax plan, and a spokeswoman promote Ivanka brands on TV.

Call it Swamp 2.0, or “The D.C. Swamp on Steroids.” But no one is profiting like Trump himself. Since the president continues profiting from his businesses, each of the 110 days Trump spent at his properties in 2017 was a marketing event. Likewise, every time someone stays at the Old Post Office in D.C., Trump gets paid.

But these are just a few examples of Trump and family monetizing the presidency.

The Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign spending and politicians’ finances, published Trump’s financial disclosures in late 2017. From the public records and other reports, it’s clear where and how Trump is making money off the office.

Here are the ways Trump is cashing in on the presidency.

From what I think I know about Donald J. Trump’s record BEFORE he because President, it appears that he may well be doing LESS WELL now that he live’s in the White House.
I don’t believe he walked into the White House wealthy from Lottery winnings.

Trumps businesses are making more money? So is just about every other business in America. It’s called winning.

He doesn’t take a salary - he donates his presidential pay to charity. He’s not allowed to run his businesses anymore.
Countless people want to assassinate him and his family. I think he was enjoying life and wealth more before he took office, but that’s just me.

Goldman Sachs bankers write the GOP tax plan

NJ (s)elected their SECOND Goldman Sachs banker to the Governorship and the POS is tax and spending while redistributing wealth. The hypocrite left can suck it.

I guarantee Mr.Trump took a hit becoming President Trump in his wealth and works for FREE. How RICH is the Kenyan, and BOTH Klintons now? Why do politicians who work for us and are paid by our TAXES become multimillionaires!!!???That's obviously rhetorical and most Americans care less.

I’ve noticed a lot of crap gets posted on FR. It doesn’t do anything for morale, and gives publicity to the enemy.
