Collateral Damage

Donald Trump is an inveterate gambler. Six times he has had hotel or casino businesses owned by him declare bankruptcy. He has shown a propensity to bet the house, taking chances on matters where logic and sound judgment would inform that the odds are long and the likely results disastrous.. 

Yet, in the end, he has outrun his bad decisions. He has continued on, for the most part unscathed. The same cannot be said for those who invested their monies with him, for those employees who found themselves on the wrong end of Mr. Trump's quixotic decisions. But Donald Trump never cared about those harmed or destroyed by his errors. HIs focus only on his own survival.

So why would we possibly be surprised by his cries to LIBERATE? Donald Trump is once again putting all the chips in the middle of the table. It just so happens that this time you and I are those chips. If he wins, and if only a few thousand more of us cease to exist because the President wants to shore up a leaking ship and increase his chances of victory in November, that would be perfect in his eyes. And if not, well...

This latest potential loss would be counted in the currency of a wholly morally bankrupt person. Our deaths but acceptable collateral damage.

Trump is not a gambler. He is corrupt. His plan for the casinos was simple: draw as much money out of these corporate entities and then declare bankruptcy. He made an illicit fortune. He is totally corrupt in his intentions for this country, He views this country as nothing more than a giant casino. At some point, we will all bemoan the 'misappropriated' funds.--RE
