Trump Using Presidency For Own Personal Gain!
This should not come as a surprise to anyone who has lived in the US for the past four years.
Now, in a new book, John R. Bolton portrays Donald Trump as a president who sees his office as an instrument to advance his own personal and political interests. Read on…
CelebNPolitics247.com has the latest from John R. Bolton commiserated with John F. Kelly over the burdens of working for President Trump from summer 2018.
Bolton explains that during 2018 there were many arguments, but one inparticular when Mr. Kelly and the White House chief of staff, had another argument with the president, They were trying to stop him from using the power of his office to punish a political foe.
Mr. Kelly asked plaintively:
Has there ever been a presidency like this?
I assured him there had not.
After more than three years of the Trump presidency, it has become easy to forget at times just has lied, and was not truthful to the American public. The normalization of Mr. Trump’s norm-busting, line-crossing, envelope-pushing administration has become a daily occurrence.
That is what got Mr. Trump impeached in the first place, but the book asserts his Ukraine scheming was no one-off. The line between policy and politics, generally murky in any White House, has been all but erased in Mr. Bolton’s telling.
Decisions on trade, foreign policy, national security, law enforcement and other issues are fashioned went out the window with Trump.
Basically, Mr. Bolton describes it, Mr. Trump sees little need for pretense.
Mr. Bolton writes in the book. At another point he adds:
Throughout my West Wing tenure, Trump wanted to do what he wanted to do, based on what he knew and what he saw as his own best personal interests. I am hard-pressed to identify any significant Trump decision during my tenure that wasn’t driven by re-election calculations.
In the book, Trump is viewed through the eyes of others in the White House as a an “erratic,” “impulsive” and “stunningly uninformed” man.
What is crazier is that Mr. Trump could make “irrational” decisions and “saw conspiracies behind rocks.
Mr. Bolton told ABC News this week that he had concluded that Mr. Trump was not “fit for office” and did not have “the competence to carry out the job.”
There really isn’t any guiding principle that I was able to discern other than what’s good for Donald Trump’s re-election.
The solution VOTE this November and get Biden in office.
