Although arguably misplaced, the economic frustration many feel helped propel Donald Trump into office, hoping a supposedly successful businessman might turn things around. And at face value you can’t fault that thinking. Yet putting aside the moral paradoxes, taking into account the track record of his many bankruptcies that left others to pay the piper and other dubious practices should have been a warning sign of things to come.
One has to consider the growing list of those around him either quitting, being fired or indicted and pleading guilty to a host of charges from suspect business practices, chiefly lying and fraud. It may seem a small thing with so much else going on, yet highly indicative, a team of lawyers for one of Trump’s associates rescued themselves citing irreconcilable differences with the defense? A recent event with the Trump Hotel in Panama highlights problematic behavior as outside investors seeking to take control instigated a rapid file shredding episode by Trump representatives. Who does such things and why? The Donald and his associations create more shade than a large maple tree in summer.
