:? :?

I think he is making the exact opposite point whereas you seem to be placing blame on the reps for any downturn of the economy.

A long time ago, a member here plugged me with AVAAZ.
From times to times, I contribute, but today, I received this long letter...
========================================================

Dear friends,
It’s now shockingly clear that Donald Trump is Putin’s poodle.

But we need the world to understand why, before it’s too late…


Trump's businesses went bankrupt
https://money.cnn.com/2015/08/31/news/companies/donald-trump-bankruptcy/
so many times in the 1990s that many legitimate banks wouldn’t lend
https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-trump-deutsche-bank/trump-lawyer-denies-deutsche-bank-got-subpoena-on-trump-accounts-idUKKBN1DZ13M
to him anymore. He turned to Russian oligarchs
https://newrepublic.com/article/143586/trumps-russian-laundromat-trump-tower-luxury-high-rises-dirty-money-international-crime-syndicate
-- Putin’s ruling clique -- to bankroll his projects, and launder their dirty money for them. This was, and continues to be, a huge part of his business. He’s a Russian money launderer.

"We don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia."
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/eric-trump-donald-golf-courses-russia-funding-golf-writer-interview-2014-james-dodson-a7722806.html

This isn’t speculation or hyperbole. There's mountains of evidence. Trump’s former election campaign Chairman, Paul Manafort, has deep ties to Russian oligarchs, and is currently in jail awaiting trial on, among other charges, money laundering!

Here are 5 more top facts everyone should know about Trump's long collusion with Russian organised criminals -- forward this email and share it on Facebook -- we all deserve to know the truth:

1 - Trump’s main financial backer
https://www.ft.com/trumptoronto
for the Trump Tower Toronto was a Russian-Canadian billionaire who got the money by selling a massive steel mill in Ukraine for nearly a billion dollars. $100 million of that money was paid to a Kremlin-backed fixer, likely as a bribe to VERY high Russian officials. The Chairman of the Bank who financed the deal? Vladimir Putin.

2 - Trump bought his home in Palm Beach, Florida for $41 million. A few years later, with no real increase in the value -- he sold it for $95 million -- the most expensive home in America at the time! Why? A major Russian oligarch bought it
https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/why-did-a-russian-pay-95m-to-buy-trumps-palm-beach-mansion/
-- we don’t know yet why he effectively ‘gave’ Trump $54 million. But it’s classic money laundering practice.

3 - Trump's real estate deals were often fuelled by Russian money, typically passed through shady shell companies.
https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/thomasfrank/secret-money-how-trump-made-millions-selling-condos-to
77% of Trump Soho apartments were bought with cash by such mysterious companies. At least 13 people with links to Russian oligarchs or mobsters lived in Trump properties, including one of Russia's top mobsters. One even ran a high-stakes illegal gambling ring
https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/controversial-residents-trump-tower/story?id=52577191
in the apartment right below Trump's!

"Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets"
http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-jr-said-money-pouring-in-from-russia-2018-2?r=UK&IR=T

4 - Trump’s financial broker and “Senior Advisor” was a Russian convicted felon named Felix Sater,
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/aug/31/felix-sater-trump-russia-investigation
widely known as a mafia figure who once stabbed someone in the face with a broken margarita glass, requiring over 100 stitches. Sater helped set up shell companies, and arranged funding for Trump’s projects, including plans for Trump Tower Moscow. He’s also part of Putin’s inner circle. Here’s one email he wrote to Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in November, 2015:
"Michael I arranged for Ivanka to sit in Putins private chair at his desk and office in the Kremlin. I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected. We both know no one else knows how to pull this off without stupidity or greed getting in the way. I know how to play it and we will get this done. Buddy our boy can become President of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will."
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/us/politics/trump-tower-putin-felix-sater.html

5 - Trump’s other main business is casinos -- which are classic money laundering vehicles. One of his casinos was 100 times found in violation of federal rules
https://edition.cnn.com/2017/05/22/politics/trump-taj-mahal/index.html
protecting against money laundering, and paid the largest fine ever levied against a casino for having “willfully violated” anti-money laundering rules. Trump has a legal obligation to do “due diligence” for all his businesses to prevent laundering. His senior executive’s comment on this was “Donald doesn’t do diligence”.

of Russian journalists and critics, and bombed
http://www.businessinsider.com/how-the-1999-russian-apartment-bombings-led-to-putins-rise-to-power-2018-3?r=UK&IR=T
hundreds of Russian civilians to fake a terrorist attack and justify a war in Chechnya.


Yet when asked at their press conference if Trump had any criticism of Putin, he had none, and ridiculed US law enforcement for investigating Russian attacks on US democracy!


Why? Trump has been working for Putin's corrupt inner circle for almost 20 years. And it's that corrupt circle that promises to make him rich for the next 20 (he's refused, in violation of all ethics, to divest from his businesses as President).

Trump *may* be a Russian intelligence asset, he *may* have colluded with Putin to sabotage the US election. But what is clear is that he is a corrupt Russian money launderer, in the pocket of a KGB dictator. The whole world needs to know this, and rally together to prevent the damage this corrupt alliance threatens. Share this email with everyone…



With hope,

Ricken, Emma, Rewan, Joseph, Morgan, Spyro, Flora and the whole Avaaz team

PS -- scroll down for a TON of credible, trustworthy, fact-checked sources for everything in this email. Avaaz isn't one of those absurd troll publications that slings lies for profit -- we're a nonprofit, and every time we make an error anywhere, we publish the correction on our accuracy page,
https://www.avaaz.org/en/commitment_to_accuracy/
linked from the front of our website.

PPS -- if Trump the 'organized criminal money launderer' sounds like a stretch to you, consider it just the tip of the iceberg of Trump's known corruption:
•His 'charitable foundation' is likely to be shut down for multiple examples of fraud.
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 55241.html
•Trump 'University' scammed
http://time.com/4101290/what-the-legal- ... s-founder/
legions of vulnerable people out of their money.
•He had an affair with a pornstar and paid her
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-44143960
to keep quiet -- she says she was also threatened
http://time.com/5243126/stormy-daniels- ... at-sketch/
with physical violence.
•His ex-wife attested in court documents that he brutally raped
https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016 ... e-of-women
her while tearing out her hair after he didn't like the hair replacement doctor she recommended.
•He bragged, on tape, about sexually assaulting
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... ding-women
multiple women.
•Hundreds of people hired by Trump say he simply decided not to pay them
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/pol ... /85297274/
for their work -- including dishwashers, painters and waiters, some of whom were making minimum wage.
•He has been sued, and forced to pay out settlements,
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/pol ... /84995854/
over a hundred times.

Trump is not a devil -- he's a human being, and like all people he has positive qualities and legitimate views. But anyone who denies that he is deeply corrupt, isn't looking at the facts. To understand Trump, and protect our world from him, we need to understand his corruption.

You obviously don't read this thread (or forum) very often. Because I've posted monthly official Government stats/rates in this very thread (and others) for several years now. And the majority of the aforementioned stats/rates CLEARLY show that, genius. For example, when you compare the Labor Force Participation rate, Homeownership rate & the quantities of welfare & food stamp recipients, etc., you'll see that they were WORSE in 2016 than in 2009. There was only sluggish growth at best during Obama's disastrous 8 years...

Here's some advice for you (and for Mr. Not So Nice Guy): STOP being a MORON. :roll:

Trump ended this visit by announcing a $30 billion arms sale to the Saudis, who immediately turned around and cut diplomatic ties with Qatar (which is where CENTCOM's Middle East headquarters is). The Saudis also started bombing Yemen.

Good times...
