It is of extreme importance that our political leaders be men and women of such high integrity that they would never use their political position for personal — especially financial — gain. It is inimical to the very nature of democracy that our chosen leaders be vulnerable to being bought.
trump seems to have no clue what that means. All his statements so far have suggested that he believes letting his children run his businesses resolves any conflicts of interest. Aside from the fact that it is completely unbelievable that those children could go four years without c0nsulting daddy, trump’s solution doesn’t touch the problem. He seems to think “conflict of interest” refers only to how much time he devotes to his business instead of his presidency. That’s not the issue at all.
The issue is not time but the buying of a president. trump, because of his unlimited greed, his lack of moral boundaries, and his tendency to be influenced by the last person he talks to, is sure to be one of the most easily bought presidents we’ve ever had.
So far there have been many signs in the last month that trump knows full well how to profit from his position and fully intends to do so. I have yet to see a hint that there is a moral fiber in his soul . . .
