Most definitely. He's already asking foreign dignitaries to stay at his hotels, which have been doing extremely poorly since his campaign began. That's not even a big deal though, the fact that he won't put his assets into a blind trust, and has chosen to hand it off to his children means they will 100% be taking advantage of his position. I can only hope they won't be so bold as to give them salaries from the government as some type of adviser, and have them run his business at the same time.

I mean, he already is. Quite blatantly. Its the foremost thing making him immediately impeachable upon taking office.

Pence is driving the bus and Trump is delegating his power. Example Carrier Air conditioning today

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


Excessive and confusing regulations and consumer protections are actually great for major corporations. It is small businesses that they kill. They also don't help the consumer. Regulations in the US are often harmful to the consumer. Even ones that aren't directly harmful can be harmful in that they limit the choice of the consumer. I work in the financial industry. I have seen financial product lines shut down because they just aren't feasible to run anymore. I have also see options that members used to have regarding flexibility of payment, such as timing of payment, shut down and become unavailable because they could no longer be supported due to regulations. You wanted to have your payment due on the 3rd of the month instead of the 10th - too bad, that can't be done anymore. You wanted to have your payment be biweekly instead of monthly - too bad, can no longer be supported.

It's the media's new favorite game: pin the gaffe on the Don.

Wouldn't surprise me in the least if Trump keeps making moves to enrich himself, although I'm not sure his handlers are going to let him do something impeachable right off the bat.

Not at all, if you read through Trump's economic policy plans he is actually eliminating certain tax cut loop-holes that big businesses and corporations use to avoid having to pay specific taxes.

Then why isn't he putting his business in a blind trust instead of this very shady "No peeking" trust he is trying to get away with?

Yeah, literally nothing he does means jack and shit unless he divests his businesses and puts them into a blind trust.

Kinda too late on that one. Unless he does the above he is in violation of the Constitution and impeachable. With Pence running the show anyway I can see Trump going up on the chopping block should his numbers slip. We'll see how long he's in office before everything becomes his fault. As it does with every president. -.-
