Trump’s children must undergo mandatory training to learn how to avoid defrauding charities

 

President Donald Trump’s three eldest children have agreed to undergo a mandatory training seminar to ensure they don’t fraudulently misuse charity funds in the future.

 

The New York Times reports that, as part of a settlement the New York State Attorney General’s Office, three of Trump’s children “were ordered to undergo mandatory training to ensure they do not engage in similar misconduct” at future charities.

 

The three children in question — Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump — were all officers at the Trump Foundation, which was accused by prosecutors of fraudulently misappropriating funds for the president’s personal expenses.

 

The Trump Foundation agreed to voluntarily disband as part of its settlement with the New York Attorney General, and Trump paid out $2 million in compensation to eight different charities to make up for the money that the foundation misused over the span of several years.

 

In addition to paying $2 million, the president also had to admit that he misused foundation funds to fund his own presidential campaign, pay off his businesses’ legal expenses, and to buy a $10,000 portrait of himself that wound up being displayed at one of his Florida hotels.

Am I the only one hung up on the fact that he was holding a rally in a DENNY's?  I mean, discussing porn in a Denny's is pretty normal I  guess, maybe that's why?

$100 says Kern watches gay porn on pornhub. Most of the people who shout the loudest about it being sinful are the ones that are “sinning” themselves.

Trump's America - the tribalization of America is almost complete.

When Donald Trump launched his 2016 presidential bid, he did so almost as an independent, openly disdainful of the Republican Party establishment, and enjoying little support within it.

When the House votes on impeachment Wednesday, Mr. Trump is likely to enjoy complete support from that same Republican Party, and will be dependent upon that support for his survival.

That represents one of the most remarkable transformations in modern American politics. More than that, it suggests that, while impeachment will be remembered for many things, one of the most important is how it may be completing the tribalization of politics in America.

In a sense, the politics of impeachment is the logical conclusion of the ideological, geographical and socio-economic sorting of the two major parties. Republicans in Congress now tend to represent more clearly conservative sectors of the country, which increasingly lie outside urban areas and in places where traditional cultural norms prevail. Democrats represent more clearly liberal areas, increasingly centered in coastal urban states that are more diverse and have shifting cultural values.

Those areas of the country have less in common than they used to, and the politics of those who represent them reflect that. They are expected to pull on their red or blue jerseys and go into the political arena to fight for their side, no questions asked.

This expectation is reflected in support and opposition to President Trump. Republicans have swallowed their misgivings about Mr. Trump and the pressure he put on the Ukrainian government because he now is captain of their team, and the team is what really matters. So they have swung behind him, knowing that there will be a steep price to pay with GOP voters back home unless they do so.

Similarly, Democrats face great peril if they utter any words of support for a president despised among their base voters. Some may have misgivings about impeachment, but the pressure from above and below them within the party is to swallow those misgivings and line up with the team in its charge that the president abused his power in pressuring Ukraine.

This process accounts for an almost complete division of views of Mr. Trump along party lines—a division far greater than any seen previously in modern American politics. In the most recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, 91% of self-identified Republicans said they approve of the job President Trump is doing, while just 6% of Democrats said they approve. That 85-point gap is 20 points wider than the gap seen at this point in the presidency of Barack Obama, who was considered a polarizing figure himself. By contrast, the same partisan gap at this point in Jimmy Carter’s presidency was a mere 16 percentage points.

Trump administration sent 22-page letter defending Russia — on the eve of impeachment vote

 

President Donald Trump’s administration was defending Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime one day before Congress began debating impeachment, The Daily Beast reported Wednesday.

 

“The Trump administration is quietly fighting a new package of sanctions on Russia, The Daily Beast has learned. A Trump State Department official sent a 22-page letter to a top Senate chairman on Tuesday making a wide-ranging case against a new sanctions bill,” Betsy Woodruff Swan reports.

 

The legislation in question was sponsored by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and is titled the “Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act of 2019” or DASKA.

 

“It’s designed to punish Russian individuals and companies over the Kremlin’s targeting of Ukraine, as well as its 2016 election interference in the U.S., its activities in Syria, and its attacks on dissidents,” The Beast explained. “Graham said the legislation’s aggressiveness means it is ‘the sanctions bill from hell,’ per Yahoo Finance. “Trump World, meanwhile, says it is a mess.”

 

“The administration shares the goal of deterring and countering Russian subversion and aggression,” the letter argued. “However, the Administration strongly opposes this bill in its current form for the reasons detailed below.”

 

Following the letter, five Republican senators opposed the bill during a Wednesday vote in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee: Chairman Jim Risch (R-WI), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Sen. Johnny Isacson (R-GA), Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).

 

The bill passed out of the Foreign Relations Committee, but it is unclear whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will bring it to the floor for a vote. The Kentucky senator has been nicknamed “Moscow Mitch” for his support of policies supported by Putin.
