Donald Trump gave his first press conference yesterday, and he roasted the media.
The most memorable moment was when Trump berated CNN reporter. “Your organization is terrible,” Trump told CNN’s Jim Acosta when he tried to ask a question. “You’re attacking us, can you give us a question?” Acosta replied. “Don’t be rude. No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
It was a drive by in broad daylight – and people cheered. Even CNN ran an article stating that Trump “nailed” his first press conference. The people he destroyed couldn’t even deny that they got owned.
Prior to the roasting, Trump had a representative speak on how he’d prevent conflicts of interest that would arise from the Trump Organization by putting his assets into a trust, and ceasing to make business deals with foreign countries.
As for current deals outstanding? As the Federalist Papers reported, it’s the American taxpayer getting a dividend from that.
In explaining how the president-elect will distance himself from his massive company, one of his lawyers, Shari Dillon, explained that the “Emoluments Clause” in the Constitution doesn’t mean one can’t pay for a hotel room.
But since Trump owns hotels and other real estate around the world, Trump will go further:
“He is going to voluntarily donate all profits from foreign governments made to his hotels to the United States treasury,” Dillon says.
It’s not known yet how much profit Trump’s massive business does overseas, but it says a lot that Trump is willing to just give all that money to the American people while he’s president.
So he’s using business profits to pay down the national debt (which, while minuscule in perspective to our massive national debt, shows he’ll put his money where his mouth is), isn’t going to take any vacations as President, and isn’t taking a Presidential salary.
The difference between him and Obama is staggering – it’s about time for REAL hope and change.
