Trump is Ethically Inept

The USA, which ranks 63rd in a list of 120 countries on a scale of degree of nepotism, has strong laws against the practice of leaders appointing their own family members to positions of influence and power. It is clear that our intention is to stay far away from the danger of our leaders favoring family over country.

Two of Trump’s senior advisors are Jared and Ivanka Trump Kushner.It is by any measure a clear violation of the express intent of our laws against nepotism. True to his oft-proven insensitivity to ethical issues, Trump seems to think that he can evade the law by not paying his daughter and son in law a salary. He measures everything by money because he is incapable of thinking in ethical terms.

Among many problems created by Trump’s lack of ethics in this matter is the troublesome fact that we the people have no way to hold “volunteers” accountable for their work. Such “unpaid” nepotism is nothing more than an evasion of responsibility, something which is a common tool used by Trump, who is entirely devoid of any sense of personal responsibility for his own words and decisions.

How low we have sunk as a people!
