What Trump is after

Posted on FB today by someone who I usually, but don't always, agree with. 

" I suspect that Trump was bailed out in 2006-2007 by Russians when he was going bankrupt. He owes them a lot. But in the process of all of that, he came to realize that Putin is the richest man in the world. He wants that for himself. He realizes that the way to do it is an authoritarian route. The Clintons only amassed about $150 million. Trump wants more. Indeed, if you look at his emoluments violations to date, he and his family members are up to at least $1 billion in benefit just in the first year.

That is what this is all about, IMO."


I would like to say this is hyperbole. But I don't think it is. And I have seriously come to the conclusion that this administration has put our republic in the most threatened and precarious political position it has been in since 1861. And Vladimir Putin can hardly contain his glee.
