Ethics violations are committed every day by your illegitimate president. He continues to operate his foreign business ventures, which is a direct conflict of interests. Trump has been very blatant about this fact. When he signed an executive order banning Muslims from seven states, not included were two Muslim nations where Trump and his circle of sinners have business interests; Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
Not including Saudi Arabia is a serious mistake; 15 of the 19 terrorists who attack the United States on September 11, 2001, were Saudi nationals.
Before his inauguration, Trump and his circle of sinners signaled to the American people that they were not concerned about ethics violations. The General Services Administration had planned to schedule a series of classes for approximately 4,000 members of Trump’s incoming staff. Trump and his cronies canceled the classes, claiming that they would hold their own. Both George W. Bush and Barrack Obama placed their staffs in similar classes.
The GSA sent out this memo to Trump and his circle of sinners, explaining to purpose of these classes.
“It is intended to start at the top and extend throughout the Federal Government, establishing the tone and culture of collaboration and accountability for the President’s Administration,” read the request.
Of course Trump already knew that many of his nominees had controversial pasts. Jeff Sessions was a confirmed racist; Scott Pruitt continues to be involved in lawsuits against the EPA; Rex Tillerson has very close ties with Vladimir Putin; bot personally and professionally; and Andrew Puzder hated his employees and sought to replace them with robots. Puzder was also accused of domestic violence. And don’t let me forget Steven Mnuchin, whose bank foreclosed on more homes than any other American institution.
But Trump and his circle of sinners have a philosophy, which may not be new to Republicans; they are simply more open about their beliefs. “Ethics; we don’t need no stinking ethics!”
America has the most immoral government in the world, and it’s time for the people to follow the advice of Abraham Lincoln.
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
