President Donald Trump Is ‘Corrupting The Wheels’ Of Government | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC


Bloomberg’s Tim O’Brien argues Donald Trump is ‘corrupting the wheels’ of government, as officials are spending lavishly at Trump properties. New Politico reporting shows military officials spent a night at Trump’s Turnberry golf resort in Scotland, and spent $11M in fuel at a local airport to help keep the airport in business. O’Brien adds ‘people willingly went to those properties without Trump pushing them along’ because they know ‘behooves you to patronize the President's properties.’

    Trump is NOT a king just a wannabe dictator. He serves at the will of the people not his bank balance or Putin. If he is not stopped soon the damage will be fixable but reputations will not.

  2. Well, duh, you make a criminal mobster your President, you may just corrupt your government, although, in all candor, we had already been corrupt, but Trump’s taking it to a whole new level. We’ve got a real pro at corruption running the country now. When we collapse into full-fledged kleptocracy like Putin’s Russia we’ll look back longingly and understand that we had no one to blame but ourselves. Yes, it’s sad, very sad indeed.

      Instead of looking back longingly, why aren’t Americans hitting the streets? example: Hong Kong.

    IRS AUDIT for TRUMP administration prior to office and after office?

    • Chadillac look at delusional little low iq Chaddy thinking she is so clever. Just another turd trying to be funny. As usual little Chaddy you got nothing. Laughable

    • You forget that the irs is in trump’s pocket. They refuse to turn over tax returns to congress and congress is too weak to assert themselves to work for the people. Both dems and repubs need to be voted with people who love this country and love our constitution.

    • @DDKaraokeOutlaw Does he have to? No he doesn’t so whats your point? Nobody really cares except idiots like you

  4. Trump is like a highly infectious and deadly pathogen. He will contaminate and destroy anything he comes into contact with. Plants wilt and die whenever he walks into a room.

    Pure unadulterated corruption right out in the open with total permission from The Republicans!

    • @Kevin stevens so you are using the fact that your father humped your cousin as an excuse?

    • Chadillac oh little Chaddy you are so T for tired. You need to update that playbook. It is the same old same old from you. Try rubbing a couple of those brain cells together and see if you can come up with something new. What a tool

    • AND NANCY PELOSI who still seeks evidence.

    • @DeepForest
      To what end? So that Moscow Mitch and his band of cronies can acquit him and send him back to the White House? They can’t get rid of him with impeachment, and they’re only going to get one good shot at him – better to take it during election season than now.

    • @David Druckman Why are all you putinTroll such smelly cowards?

  6. Get us rid of TRUMP😥😥

  7. all are threats to american security! This is exactly how Rome fell!

    • @Mac jones oh no, are we about to enter the dark ages of Trump!

    • @James Meldrum your negative view clouds your judgement and factual understanding. Christianity did not fail then and it is not failing to day. And it is not a bogus belief system. Man decided not to follow the clear path Jesus laid out for them. Do yourself this favor. read Jesus’s “sermon on the mount” and tell me what you think

    • @Leonie Romanes We have already entered the dark ages. Trump is just a part of it

    • @Mac jones not negative view, realistic view. You should try it some time. Reading the whole of the bible should help with your delusional beliefs.

    • Every empire that’s been has fallen in this world.

  8. It’s taken delusional donny 3 years to cook his books and it’s still BS

  9. Is he Plumping up his businesses for the next election, so when he goes public they look more profitable than they really are

    • natalie harless | September 10, 2019 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      Actually he’s plumping up his profits for his kiddies for the “dynasty of Trump”. Lose him NOW!

    • Friend, we’re on the same side, but you really don’t ‘get’ how bad this is by an order of magnitude: See, ALL THIS TIME… *Donny-Dear has had a specific FINANCIAL DEAL with this Airport (AND MANY OTHERS.) made just before the election. A Personal business deal on paper, to:
      1) he gets to pocket a percentage of the $ from ‘business he sends to the Airport’ (ie, a PERCENTAGE IF THE BILLIONS IN AIR FORCE REFUELING MONEY, GOING INTO TRUMP’S POCKET over the last 3 years.) and;
      2) Get Resort-bound passengers bused to his resort for free by the Airport (where he then makes even money immorally/illegally)
      Clearly Republicans are no longer ‘law and order conservatives’… More like .. truth killing, societal norm eroding, chaos–radicals. Understand how bad it is: The Airforce stopped to refuel at that Airport OCCASIONALLY before Trump was President. Trump (or more likely his ‘people’ ) anticipated that if they made a deal with the Airport, they could massively increase the number of ‘refuelings’ happening there and in that way DOUBLY FUNNEL MONEY DIRECTLY INTO TRUMPS POCKET. Sure enough, he’s now getting kickbacks from billions in ILLICITLY ARRANGED Airport fuelings in addition to the ILLICIT PROFIT from MILLIONS then Spent at the Resort! _PRESIDENT?_ MORE LIKE: *GASLIGHTING-GRIFTER!* A MODERN DAY SNAKE-OIL SALESMAN, A CHARLATAN.

      i think he sets up situations like this :

      Trump: only the best people book my hotels
      Reporter: Thats an odd thing to say
      Trump: so our troops are not the best people? youre an antiptriotic communist.

      Something like that hehe

  10. America is allowing it. Quit complaining until he is removed. If they have the guts that is.

  11. Getting fired for telling the truth. Sounds like a strong case for damages and also wrongful dismissal. Go for it weather service.

    • The Weather Service backed their man 100%. The head scientist of NOAA also backed him. It was only a handful of POLITICAL appointees in NOAA that went along with Trump’s nonsense after he his lackey threatened to fire someone.

    • PS Wright+ Absolutely. The head of the National Weather Service stood up for his people. Good for him!

  12. NCAA has tougher financial laws for their student athletes than the government has for the president.

    We’ve got ourselves an honest to god dictator! Where do things go from here?

      Who is your choice for president?

      @Pelt Down Posse Ralph Nader. Now will you stop trolling.

      @DDKaraokeOutlaw Calling me a an excuse to say …Hey…ya got me…So go away…

    Drain the Swamp?
    There’s corruption at a level more blatant than anyone before.

    *Trump Is The Swamp!*

    once we seize trump’s property, i say we turn it all into migrant housing.

  17. How’d you like to be a secret service dude, charged with protecting a guy you’d rather pop?

  18. How can such a douch run this country. I have a different view of the US now.

  19. This is how a “PussyAssBitch” american president behaves, with the support of Moscow Mitch and his gutless GOP!

  20. Trump is a grifter – he’ll do anything & use anything/one for money.
