Trump signs new deal with Saudis and Oman

Bugsy McGurk

President
This one is for $4 billion. It’s on top of the $2 billion the Saudis are already giving to Jared Kushner to invest.

What conflicts of interest, right?

So are we enlightened, non-bigoted, non-xenophobes conflating people by nationality with state governments (selectively, of course)? With which nations’ private entities can people do commerce without Bugsy’s scorn, derision, and - of course - presumptive guilt?

(The answer, quite obviously, is that one must be a Democrat to do such).

I certainly don’t expect you to understand the concept of conflicts of interest. That requires having ethics and morals - alien concepts to you.

Cool, so you’re an anti-Arab xenophobic bigot such that business dealings with private entities can only be done with WASPy types? Good to know. Sich Heil!

Not at all. I have been equally critical of Trump as to all his “investments” abroad since he cannot serve both his business interests and the national interests. Another example of his conflicts is his decades-long effort to woo Putin into allowing his Moscow plans, and his kissing of Putin’s ass while president. The conflicts are obvious to people with ethics and morals.

OK, you can go back to your “anti-Arab xenophobic“ idiocy now.

It is very hard to explain ethics and morals. They are the foundation of conflicts of interest principles. They are the reason that presidents have always placed their assets into blind trusts - so decisions as president are not clouded by business interests. Trump, being Trump, pretended to place his assets into a blind trust. And now he pursues a $4 billion “investment” with the Saudis and Oman while announcing his candidacy for president.

You really don’t understand the concept of conflicts of interest, or how it applies to Trump?

i understand perfectly. i asked you what conflicts are there for an ex president who is a businessman>>?
 

Bugsy McGurk

President
yes.. what conflict of interest is there for a businessman to do business in Saudi Arabia and or Oman?
I offered no view on “a businessman” doing so. I did offer my views on a president/presidential candidate doing so. Any thoughts on my views on that?

Is it your view that the conflicts of interest of a president/presidential candidate are of no concern if an argument can be made that they are not unlawful?
