Trump's boasts and glittering generalities bear logical scrutiny. I won't begrudge him his right to try win an election, and I hope he does win IF he is going to expel the illegals, improve legal immigration standards while bettering the process, and make good on his pledges to run a foreign policy that betters our standing against China, Mexico, Japan, etc.
But Trump's claim that he is too rich to be bought is a bit too much to stomach as he creates a cult of personality around himself. Is Putin too rich to be bought, and if so, is he too rich to be corrupt, or has he simply eliminated the middle men of lobbyists and used the government to directly line his and his jewish friends' pockets with the wealth of Russia and its colonies?
Trump talks about how he has bought politicians of both parties. What is that other than corrupting our political system as a good businessman must do, in his view? Likewise, Trump admits that he has traded in Chinese wares, because as a good businessman that was the smart thing to do.
But what will the smart thing to do as a businessman be should Trump seize the reins of government? He will no longer need the middlemen of lobbyists. No more will he depend on campaign contributions to corrupt the government to serve his ends, and those of his many jewish friends. He will be the government, l'etat cest moi! It would simply be absurd to claim that a well connected billionaire could have no conflict of interests as the head of government, and that is the relevant issue, but no media nor candidates raise it, and we must wonder why Trump is given such a pass on issues such as this one. . . .
