236th Day Trump Has Steered Taxpayer Dollars Towards His Golf Course

Today we learned that President Trump visited his Golf Course in Sterling, Virginia which makes it the 236th day he has steered taxpayer dollars towards one of his golf courses and the latest example of him abusing his office for personal enrichment.

This comes at a time when the impeachment inquiry is heating up with Democrats calling for Trump’s corrupt dealings to be included in the articles of impeachment. Democrats should definitely not close the door on incorporating Trump’s corruption into the final articles of impeachment.

It also bears pointing out that Trump’s recent rash decision that is leading to our Kurdish allies getting slaughtered in the Middle East has angered many Senate Republicans and his very reliable White Evangelical voting block.

It is too early to tell whether anger over the needless slaughter of the Kurds will cause Senate Republicans to finally abandon Trump and vote for his removal from office after he is impeached at the House.

One only hopes that Senate Republicans angered by Trump’s senseless betrayal of our Kurdish allies will also start addressing his corrupt dealings chief among them, his constant steering of taxpayer dollars towards his businesses.

Bottom line folks a line has to be drawn somewhere regarding Trump’s constant steering of taxpayer dollars towards his businesses. Articles of impeachment regarding Trump’s corruption would certainly go a long way towards forcing a real debate around this issue even if the Senate ultimately votes to keep him in office.

Simply put, Yours Truly would pay to watch Republican Senators going on the record to defend taxpayer funds being spent on Trump’s properties. That would be a sight to behold!!

306th Day Trump Has Steered Taxpayer Dollars Towards His Properties

Trump’s violations of the U.S. Constitution’s emoluments clause are at an unprecedented level and already the subject of several federal lawsuits. Any other U.S. President at this juncture would have been embarrassed by this glaring appearance of impropriety into either (1) immediately divesting from any and all businesses he currently holds or (2) stopping visits to his own properties that necessitate spending of tax dollars there.

This is what any other similarly situated U.S. President (former businessman) would have done. Sadly, none of those other U.S. Presidents are Donald Trump. Just today we’ve found out that he is visiting his Golf Club, making this the 233rd time he has visited his Golf Club and the 306th time he has visited one of his properties while President. Needless to say, all these visits mean taxpayer dollars end up being spent at his properties–money that goes directly to him and his family. This is the kind of blatant and shocking corruption Americans only used to see in third world dictatorships.

It is very clear that Trump believes nothing can be done about his blatant emoluments clause violations, which is why he continues to rack up violations. Luckily, journalists like Kyle Griffin and others are keeping tabs of these visits and hopefully, the amount of taxpayer dollars spent on them. We can all agree that Trump is not going be President forever. Rest assured therefore that at the appropriate time, we will push for every single taxpayer dollar Trump inappropriately steered towards his business be put back into government coffers. Yes Trump, at the appropriate time, we will push to have you refund all the tax dollars you inappropriately steered towards your businesses.
