Source:Late Night With Seth Meyers: The Check In- Draining The Swamp
At risk of sounding cliche to every single one of those 65 plus million Americans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016: how's that draining the swamp working out for you? The most successful real estate project that Donald Trump has ever been personally involved in or created by himself, is the 2017 expansion of the Washington Swamp. If anyone is wondering the the weather has been even hotter and more humid in Washington the last two years, it's because of one of their newest residents who just happens to live at The White House. He doesn't own The White House and doesn't even pay rent there, but he couldn't afford the rent anyway so it's sort of a moot point and question. He owes too much money probably to both Russia and Saudi Arabia and perhaps Germany as well thanks to Deutsche Bank. Who doesn't just lend money to Americans even if they're of German descent like Donald Trump.
We now have a President who not only believes the U.S. Justice Department is his personal law firm ( add to that his list of personal services that he doesn't pay for ) and the Attorney General is his personal lawyer ( add that to the list of personal lawyers that Donald Trump doesn't compensate ) but he uses those two offices and departments as his personal lawyers. And now ( thanks to The New York Times ) we know that the man who claims to be the greatest Americans businessman in American history, couldn't afford to even pay Federal income taxes in at least parts of the 1980s and 1990s, because he didn't earn enough income to qualify for Federal the income taxes and that he was also the biggest loser ( to use one of his own phrases ) during that period with all the money that he lost and had to write off to be able to financially survive during that period.
Donald Trump ran for President in 2016 claiming to be this great businessman who knows how get results and will make Washington work for the people and all of that: and his supporters will say that has worked and just look at the economy, the problems with that is he inherited a strong economy with strong economic and job growth, where even wages were finally growing again. And even with this strong economy somehow Donald Trump has managed to run up the deficit by 300 hundred-billion dollars ( which is even more money than her personally lost in the 1980s and 90s ) and the only person that Donald Trump has ever made money for ( when he's not losing money ) his himself and all the great and professional news organizations that cover him and report the truth about the Real Donald Trump ( ha, ha ) that he calls the enemy of the people.
