Indecorous to a Fault

David Brooks, an Op-Ed columnist for the New York Times made a passing remark on the PBS NewsHour that has haunted me ever since I first heard it, that the Presidents businesses are monarchal run by him with family members all around, by extension, he is running the American presidency as a monarch, run by him with family members all around. Upon a very close examination I view it as a recipe for disaster when a lose-lose step can and will place his presidency on the road to impeachment. In his most recent financial disclosures, Trump listed 144 individual companies that have had dealings in at least 25 countries in Asia, Europe, Africa, South America and North America, among other companies with regional international interests, according to a CNN review. So, it may be possible to visit anyone of twenty-five countries around the world and find the presidents name on buildings, on financial contracts, on almost any kind of monetary enterprises involving the U.S. government or his family members either one of them or both at the same time. If this is not on the surface at the very least have an appearance of impropriety, moving forward, then I don’t know what does.
