Crooked Donald?

"Nice country you got here, Mister Taxpayer. It would be a shame if something
happened to it."

Remember when Donald Trump carried on about "Crooked Hillary" because she was paid six figure sums to give speeches to bankers? Or because a charitable foundation that her family runs received money from foreign contributors who might want a favor from the State Department?

Pal, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

The tangle of Donald Trump's business operations— and the ways he is currently awash in opportunities to rip off American taxpayers from his desk in the Oval Office — are stunning.

The possibilities range from cutting the rent he pays to the government on a Federal post office in Washington DC that he turned into a hotel, thus increasing his his business relationships, direct or otherwise, in foreign nations with which he will also conduct foreign having his kids and son-in-law simultaneously control  government policy and his business operations boggles the mind.

Conflict of interest? Hell, it's an invitation to rob America blind.

Here's a piece from the New York Times that details part of it. Some of it is as complicated and tangled as the wiring for an antique television set, so hold on tight while you read it. 

And while you're reading, try not to mumble too often, "Crooked Donald! Crooked Donald!"
