Looks like Trump is about to go golfing, based on the $179k Secret Service golf cart billPosted by Thomas Bush / May 18, 2020
The Secret Service has signed a $179,000 contract to rent golf carts (from a private company) at one of Trump’s golf courses. In past years, the Secret Service has rented carts during one of Trump’s visits, so it’s likely that Trump will be golfing while the country struggles with COVID.
It’s starting to make sense why President Trump sent a series of tweets urging citizens to violate Democratic governors’ stay-at-home orders last month. Jay Inslee has called the tweets “unhinged” and “illegal,” since they’re calling for domestic insurrection. He did so because he wants to get the country open again––so he can keep greasing his business’s wheels. Evidence is growing that Trump’s COVID response is political corruption.
According to a recent ProPublica investigation, the Trump administration pushed FEMA to approve contractors for a government job who never even bid, circumventing the normal process for unknown reasons.
According to a New York Times investigation, Donald Trump’s family trust and some of his associates have a small stake in Sanofi, the company that makes it.
Other aspects of Trump’s handling the COVID crisis are leading to cries of corruption. His briefings on the pandemic are, basically, a parade of CEOs who lavish praise on Trump. Some 57% of the U.S. population believes that the political system only works for those with money and influence…can’t imagine why that is.
