BUT, we are simply expected to take his word for building AMAZING businesses, yet he provides no basis for any evaluation or truth telling.
After the election he is under no burden of disclosure about his taxes. We would never know and he would go about his business as usual, scamming anyone he can to raise his bottom lines—using the tools of government to score big time. While he claims to be no politician, that is exactly what he is, but without accountability. His business career has been highly political, lobbying and essentially buying political favors in a high stakes pay to play business game that the peons and small business people could not possibly have access too.
Accountability means transparency on tax returns. We need to know who he has been screwing along the way and particularly how many tax dollars he has screwed veterans, the military, police programs social programs and education out of. He says that because he exploited and lobbied for tax loopholes to benefit himself personally that he would be the right man for the job. After all, a crook knows best how to prevent other crooks from succeeding.
On that basis, we should put people like Charles Manson in charge of the federal prison system, and Ken Lay as head of the treasury, and Ted Bundy as presidential liaison for women’s rights, and appoint people like James Earl Ray to head the civil rights division of the US Justice Department.
With this kind of thinking, which Trump has demonstrated over and over again, bringing iconic crooks out of prison could be his binder of appointees.
