His family is in charge of his business's and they are making the money.

Obama made money as POTUS, but hey he is a left wing Democrat, and that was allowed.

Hillary pocketed millions of ill gotten pay for play booty from other countries not friendly to the USA, and where is your outrage about that?

Just more liberal whining?

hillary was not president and obama donated book royalties and they are not gifts and/or gain from foreign powers.

Trump profits from the fact he is potus, an act which is against Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of our constitution.

Obama received a lot more money than any books might have made. And that money went right into his pockets.

Trump removed him self from his empire, by giving it to his kids. But of course that is not good enough for the left wing.

To bad you lost the election, to bad you so butt hurt over it. America could be great again if it were not for a bunch of left wing sore looser people bent on the destruction of our country. Yup, looks like you just another one of those.

Hillary was SOS. Obama left office far wealthier than he arrived. He donated SOME of his book royalties. Those ghost written while in office. He kept the royalties from Dreams and Audacity. Also has a 500K rewrite contract today. It would be safe to say that sales of Dreams and Audacity were better while Obama was President than while a junior Senator. Very few Congressmen leave poorer than they arrive. Cantor, for one took a 2-3 million job after being fired by his constituents.

Trump has been in office a couple months. Hardly enough to produce a comparative financial statement.

Show me a President, Congressman, or Department head. I'll show you someone who benefited from his tenure in office.

Just more librobabble from the party with nothing to say.

link for the bold?

no I am not butt hurt which is a really silly nasty phrase btw.
I know the present GOP doesn't have my interest at heart and there's only so much trump can do about that
but looks like he is doing nothing but silly tweets and tantrums, doesn't go to enough briefings, is making himself unbelievable for a future time when he may need everyone to trust his word. And is just furthering deals for himself. And this is not underground news. There is just so much of it we can't keep up. And if something looks a bit newsworthy he tweets something so outrageous again the ants in a line media all start talking about that..
narcissism or planned it's bad for us
