You’d have to be very gullible to buy Donald Trump’s claim that his global business deals won’t jeopardize national security


LIKE A POLITICAL Elmer Gantry, Donald Trump goes from city to city, proclaiming that only he can save America, spinning outrageous statements and spewing lies before heading off to his next revival meeting. Serious questions about his candidacy for the presidency are left unanswered or buried under a flurry of deceit.

Confronted with the recent Newsweek cover story detailing numerous potential conflicts of interest between his foreign business dealings and American national security should he be elected, Trump and his children responded with a litany of nonsensical claims. There would be no conflicts, he said, because he would put his company, the Trump Organization, into a blind trust. Then he said he would sever his connections with the business. With both answers, though, he said his children would run the company. Then his daughter, Ivanka Trump, a fashion designer and former model, jumped in with her goofy explanation, saying she and her siblings would figure out how to avoid deals that might raise conflicts of interest for their father.
