“Yes Virginia, your president is a crook.” This is a statement all intelligent and honest Americans can agree with. Trump’s private and public lives are a history of crimes and misdemeanors. This professional con artist remains involved in lawsuits and court actions today. His impeachment was inevitable. His own words and actions demand condemnation by congress in concert with the Constitution, but Republicans lack the courage to do the right thing.
I have read about cons and criminal actions which fooled dozens and even hundreds of innocent people. The 2016 election was the greatest con of all time. Millions of uninformed Americans chose to be ignorant and voted for the greatest con artist of all time. Trump’s life is a tale of lies, criminal action, and sexual deviance. This disgusting individual is now wearing the title of President of the United States.
Evidence proves that Trump escalated his criminal activity after the 2016 election. On Wednesday, the attorney general for Washington D.C. filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and his inaugural committee for misappropriation of non-profit funds.
“DC Attorney General Karl Racine filed the suit against the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee, the Trump Organization and the Trump International Hotel in Washington in DC Superior Court. He accused the inaugural committee of coordinating with the Trump family to grossly overpay for event space at the Trump International Hotel.”
Trump’s presidency is nothing more than a quest to increase his personal wealth. It is obvious that he is not a true billionaire, and money is his only goal. Currently he is using the United States treasury as his personal bank. His many trips to Mar-a-Lago and other resorts owned by your illegitimate president, and his hate rallies organized for the sole purpose of soothing his enormous ego have cost American taxpayers tens of millions of dollars. Trump is living the life of a real billionaire at your expense.
As I expected, Jim Jordan, co-founder of the “Freedom Caucus,” and others who call themselves “conservatives” have nothing to say about this enormous waste. You simply cannot believe anything a member of the Trump Party says.
This is not the first charge levied against the orange man-child of this type. You may remember that he required members of the military to stay at his resort in Scotland. When Pence was attending meetings Europe, he and his entourage traveled a great distance to stay at that same resort. This is a Constitutional violation. A sitting president is forbidden from profiting from foreign business interests. The list goes on and on and his party continues to allow these direct violations of the Emoluments Clause.
Trump must go; he is unfit to wear the title of President of the United States.
