If anyone doubts that Trump’s massive empire will not serve as a conflict to him leading our county, you only need to turn your head towards his first diplomatic achievement.
What would be the first thing you’d do if you were president elect? Suddenly, you had all this power and persuasion and could really do anything you wanted. You would assume, as “President of the United States”, you would want to serve America. Your top concerns would be helping America, right?
Trump has already proven that his allegiance is with his wallet not you. All of those toothless and uneducated supporters waving confederate flags at his rallies, you were all played!
Perhaps a great indicator of the next four years, and the tangled web conflict of interest that our president has ensnared himself in, is the first diplomatic dilemma that President Trump used his powers to squash.
According to a New York Times article, President-elect Trump met with British politician Nigel Farage and “suggested” that Mr. Farage get rid of the wind farms blocking the view from his luxury Scottish golf courses.
After such a blatant abuse of his presidential powers, I doubt even the most loyal Trumpkin would argue that Trump’s presidency will be to enrich himself and not Americans.
President-elect Trump has opposed the Scottish wind farm for a very long time. In fact, his failed battle with this wind farm led the two parties all the way to Britain’s highest court, where he lost.
Now, president-elect Trump will win!!!
“He did not say he hated wind farms as a concept; he just did not like them spoiling the views,” said Andy Wigmore, the media consultant who was present at the meeting.
A major financier of the Brexit campaign was also present with Trump and Farage. Apparently, this financier had previously opposed wind farms. However, Mr. Trump “did suggest that we should campaign on it” and “spurred us in and we will be going for it.”
Way to kick off a presidency!
