IN YOUR FACE
Trump has now declared that inasmuch as voters knew of his business interests when they voted for him, there can be no conflict of interest. See this story. As we might expect, the operative statement came in a tweet, viz: "Prior to the election it was well known that I have interests in properties all over the world. Only the crooked media makes this a big deal!" This is an all-out frontal assault on the Constitution, the first step in the establishment of a fascist regime. It goes with the effort, most likely successful, to neuter the press and news media. I am not being hyperbolic. We face an existential threat to democracy.
