Trump isn’t draining the swamp; he’s stocking it

When Donald Trump was running for office he said he was not a politician and wanted to drain the swap of Washington, D.C.

Since he has been the president he was become king of the swamp creatures, which is the Republican Party. He has forced opposition between the Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate.

I wonder if the loose money from the tax cuts for the rich are influencing the Republican Party.

Since Trump has been president, he has turned Sen. Lindsey Graham into a toady who defends President Trump at all costs. And Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is an inexperienced person who wants to be important.

A rotten person is a rotten person. Money doesn’t change a person’s character; but it makes it more obvious to people who aren’t fooled by lies and propaganda.
