During his staged “press conference,” the crooked US President-elect, Donald Trump, blatantly announced that he intended to continue running his business once he took office. Rather than place his sleazy business empire in a blind trust, he was handing it off to his repulsive sons.
In an attempt to camouflage his continued involvement, he had a woman he identified as a lawyer explain the scheme. According to the New York Times, she said, “President-elect Trump wants there to be no doubt in the minds of the American public that he is completely isolating himself from his business interests” and that the thuggish Trump brothers would be making decisions for the company “without any involvement whatsoever” from their insane father, who would supposedly be resigning from his positions within the Trump Organization. Trump’s daughter Ivanka will supposedly also be resigning.
Anybody believe any of that? No? Us either.
The purported lawyer also explained the Trump crime family’s refusal to sell the business and place its assets in a blind trust, as ethical authorities have expected—in her words, “President-elect Trump should not be expected to destroy the company he built.” After all, if that happens, what will he have to come back to once he’s impeached?
The Trump cabal even tried to put a happy face on their sleazy boss’s pressuring of foreign leaders to host events at his hotel, asserting that he would donate to the US Treasury all profits generated by foreign governments’ rental of rooms. We’ll see if anyone ever bothers to check into that, but we have our doubts.
Basically, corrupt Donald Trump just stood at a podium and told the international media, “Fuck you, I do what I want.”
