    I call this another power grab by Trump; he appointed Mulvaney to lead the Consumer Protection Agency. However as this agency was set up under the Dodd Frank ruling already the position was filled according to the rules. This agency was set up to help the consumer against Wall Street tricks which caused the collapse in 2008. But since Trump has now Wall Street bankers in the government he caters to them. Mulvaney is one of them and said in the past that he will terminate this department. This Department is supposed to work independently from the White House; thus by doing this, Wall Street will be acting as before the crash in 2008 and Trump will have more power as oversight is gone and can please his wealthy buddies. Yes this is only a piece of the coming powergrabs, which will lead to a full dictatorship. What a "sleeping" country!

    Not much that can be done about it, a federal judge sided w/Trump.

    We're watching a slow motion

    Of course that federal Judge must have been an Republican who got a call from Trump.

    I would like to know what, if any, media and internet service providers Trump has invested in.

    Good question. If he has investments in media, it's probably covert. We do not know because he has never released his tax filings, which reeks of doing something illegal or wrong.
