Trump fails to understand that being the President of the United States is a full-time job; he is not the Queen of England. President Obama said that it is the hardest job in the world, and we know that Trump has never worked a day in his life. But Trump continues to make efforts to be allowed the presidency, and the control of his business ventures. (Could a heart attack be coming soon; please. I know that is mean, but my America is far more important than one immoral man).
Ethics laws were enacted to protect American business interests around the world. If a president can use his power to further his economic ambitions, he is given an unfair advantage. We know that Trump has ties with at least 12 nations. His five-year association with the wealthiest man in the world, Vladimir Putin, certainly raises multiple questions. His selection of another Putin asset, Rex Tillerson, as his Secretary of States raises red flags everywhere.
Newt Gingrich is the former speaker of the house who will forever be remembered for other facts. He was the nation’s best known philanderer, and a criminal who was forced from public office. He must be labeled a traitor, and it is perfectly understandable why he is a Trump supporter.
Gingrich believes that the ethics laws should be changed just for Trump. Trump has already proven that he lacks morals; we cannot allow him an opportunity to commit more crimes while living in the White House.
“We’ve never seen this kind of wealth in the White House, and so traditional rules don’t work,” Gingrich said Monday during an appearance on NPR’s “The Diane Rehm Show” about the president-elect’s business interests. “We’re going to have to think up a whole new approach.”
Firstly, let’s be honest; Trump’s actual wealth is questionable. No one has seen his tax returns. We know that he not only refuses to donate to charities, he has stolen from his own foundation. Is Trump’s wealth “all on paper?” No one outside of the Trump family knows for certain; but many of us have doubts. And why should we change the rules for Trump? 43 other presidents have been required to follow the rules, and several of them were very wealthy for a fact. (Grover Cleveland was elected twice, but a term apart. Although Trump will sadly be our 45th president, only 44 men have held the office).
Trump should never have been allowed to receive the Republican nomination. His is neither worthy nor qualified to lead a nation of true Americans.
Finally, I predict two possible events in the not-too-distant future; Trump will be either impeached or ‘hung on the White House lawn,’ as predicted by psychics. Personally, I don’t give a damn which happens, as long as he is not our president. Of course we still would have the biggest homophobic in America taking his place in Mike Pence.
