As is evident to everyone paying attention, Donald Trump chose to sell out America in an effort to further enhance his personal wealth. It is not a coincidence that he’s declared bankruptcy so many times. What is the point of living and working legitimately if it does not further advance one’s life? That was the attitude of Trump, after growing up and being raised in family that benefited from a lack of empathy.
After inheriting multi-millions, Trump failed to increase his massive inheritance even at the rate of someone investing in the stock market. Through a number of failed business adventures, Trump was near insolvency. To continue living a life of luxury, Trump decided to ignore the rule of law and continue to do whatever it took, as his father taught him. Once he realized that the rule of law was no obstacle to increasing his wealth, Trump determined what was best for his criminal empire. Over the course of several decades, Trump ran multiple casinos into the ground, resulting in bankruptcies. For a typical owner, this would result in financial anguish.
For Trump, it was just another “job well done.” He had long ago determined that failure in any given area could be turned into benefits for himself. By declaring bankruptcy so many times, he could hide money he made through laundering illegal money coming from Russia. It became common for Russian oligarchs purchasing Trump’s properties to pay for well over two hundred percent of the going cost.
The crazy thing is, Donald Trump never expected to become the president. He had planned, despite the quid pro quo with Russian President Vladimir Putin, to lose. To Trump and Putin’s surprise, the massive conspiracy against America turned out in their favor. While Trump’s most appalling actions have been his treason against America, when he agreed to sell out his country, his decades of financial crimes may lead to his worst nightmare. While Federal crimes, including conspiracy against America, will likely take him down, it will be the asset forfeiture and likely state-level indictments that will result in his final bankruptcy.
