Hence, legal documents are being crafted which take me completely out of business operations. The Presidency is a far more important task!

I can see him inviting foreign leaders to his hotels and promoting the Trump brand. Not that I really care if he does it as its no money out of my pocket.

Yeah, being corrupt and being over his head are two very completely different things as being corrupt is simply hoarding the goodwill of the public for his own personal gain, which isn't exactly what he is all about. It's just that his ego is way too big and that he thinks that he can fix America's problems with a magic wand, or something down the lines of that which everybody realizes isn't possible. Anyway, I think he will, or at least do everything he can to make it happen, but I'm not quite sure how well it will turn out.

There will naturally be some advantage in the form of brand recognition. And I can really see him capitalizing on this after his presidency. I don't think Trump would be blatantly corrupt like Hillary would have/has been.

It seems pretty obvious...

Announcement will be:

Don: I'll be giving my business to my 4 children that way it will not benefit me directly.

Ivanka: Daddy, does that mean you'll be giving us just your job or all your stock in the company too?

Don: Shusssh, baby...no one's asking that yet.

In so far as his tax breaks are primarily for corporations and the wealthy and he is anti-regulation and anti-consumer protection, yes.

I'm sure he will cash in where he can, but Trump enriching himself personally is not a major concern of mine.
