Running the Country as a business-Trump 101

      Noah Feldman: Let Steve Bannon arrest be the coda on Trump's ...

Steve Bannon's arrest for fraud is simply a continuation of the Trump Administration's intent on monetizing any connections they may have had with the Administration.  Governing the country was always secondary to making money.  From Trump's attempt to have the British Open at his golf course in Scotland or the G7 meeting at his golf course in FloridaTrump has even copyrighted the words "Make America Great Again" and "MAGA" for future money-making opportunities.  His two sons have set up a Trump Store to sell Trump-related merchandise.  I have blogged before how all his email appeals for money comes with merchandise with Trump's name on it.  Just test marking what will sell in his store. 

    How can we forget that Trump has had to close his charity because it was fraudulent or close his online university because it was also nothing more than a fraudulent scam?  The fraud includes not paying contractors for work done. 

     There was some speculation that Trump's run for the Presidency in 2016 was not to win but to gain visibility for the creation of a new news station.  This seems to possibly be his post-presidency plan. It is always about the money when it comes to Trump or Bannon.  Maybe you CAN fool some of the people all the time.
