Watchdog alleges Trump campaign laundering moneyPosted by Annie May / July 29, 2020
Accusations of corruption surround almost everything Trump does, even the protests of the last few months. Protestors gathered in a few state capitals around the nation, including Minnesota, Texas, and Maryland. They risked contracting COVID to protest the “tyrannical” lockdown orders aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus. These gatherings, in which protestors held up signs calling for the firing of Dr. Fauci, show that Trump’s attempts to distract from his poor response and potential corruption are working.
President Trump sent the series of tweets urging citizens to violate Democratic governors’ stay-at-home orders late last week. Jay Inslee has called the tweets “unhinged” and “illegal,” since they’re calling for domestic insurrection. What we wonder is this: is Trump actually trying to encourage insurrection, or is he doing so to obscure something else––something like 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.
