Jared and Ivanka Trump made up to $640m while working in White HousePosted by Robert Leonard / February 9, 2021
According to a Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington report, Jared and Ivanka Trump made somewhere between $172-640 million while they worked in the White House. The two opted out of a government salary, which made supporters think they were being altruistic. This report raises serious questions about their side businesses while at the White House doing…whatever it was they were doing.
After Trump lost the 2020 election, he funneled campaign donations into his private business. You almost have to admire Donald Trump. The man is like the Joker, he doesn’t have a plan, he just does and goes from there. And it seems the apples don’t fall far from the tree.
Here is a prime example. He loses the election. With absolutely no thought of consequences, he just claims the election was tampered with. But clearly it wasn’t, and the courts aren’t buying it. So…what next? Oh, easy, fundraise for legal fees. And while you’re at it…why not use some of that money to pay off debts? While you’re at it, sell that Trump brand helicopter, since those debts are pretty serious.
Honestly, this is probably the only thing that will come of Trump’s nuisance lawsuits––one last con against his supporters. No one else is buying the fraud claims. Even Fox News interrupted Kayleigh McEnany, Trump’s Press Secretary, in the middle of a tirade about alleged voter fraud––a tirade with no evidence. The Fox News host said, “Whoa, whoa, whoa. I just think we have to be very clear: she’s charging the other side as welcoming fraud and illegal voting, unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this,” as he interrupted her.
Even if Fox News abandons Trump entirely, don’t expect him to leave quietly. A former director of the CIA is worried that Trump will rile up his base and possibly drive them to violence. Even though his aides tell him the legal assaults will be useless, he intends to throw every lawsuit at the wall in the hopes that one sticks. Weirdly, Trump seems to be pretending that everything is normal. He’s tweeting that he’s won the race, and he spent Saturday golfing, like he did for most of his presidency.
Although we still don’t know who won the 2020 election, one thing is clear: it’s a close call, and our country is more divided than ever. Trump inspired almost unbelievable dedication in his supporters and zeal among his enemies. The sheer effort anti-Trumpers put into this election shows their intensity. A Harvard poll indicates that young voters’ turnout broke records this year. These younger people are largely pro-Biden, and their large numbers point to their zeal. The pro-Biden Texas Democrats pushed the vote hard, trying desperately to turn the state Blue for the first time in 44 years. One of the biggest demographic hitting the polls this year were, unsurprisingly young voters.
