wwjd, I guess you forget that Trump is "mafia" all the way; he has shown that our "laws" are useless and that he can"bribe" everyone. Until now the Dem's lost on all fronts also the "impeachment", except the "virus" is "winning". Please tell me on what front have the Dem's won? Don't forget regardless of the stupidity Trump carries out, each time he gets it his way. Guess what he will do with the "elections"? He will find ways to "bribe" the "electoral college" as well again. So I would not be so sure that the Dem's win the elections (may be the popular vote, but not the electoral one), sure I hope so, but don't sell the "bear skin" if you did not "shoot" the bear yet. Did you see anything "done" by the Dem's after the "impeachment "debacle? Nothing but words only.
Dutch, Trump has mafia like tendencies and aspirations, but he has no real ties to mafia other than he might have been used as their stooge from time to time to launder money. Those individuals truly involved in organized crime (or white collar crimes) are far too smart to share with Donald Trump the details of their criminal activities as a trusted co-conspirator. Sure, I would agree that the organized crime may have used him because he so damn stupid, but he always remained on the fringe of the real mafia and they've never him told anything. The entire world sees he had got a big fucking megaphone mouth, and he would spill his guts of everything he knew within 5 minutes of a FBI interview just so he could falsely claim to the world that he was the #1 top secret undercover agent for the FBI. If the Mafia ever told Donald Trump anything, it would have been misinformation they knew he would leak the FBI.
What his most likely guilty of is laundering money for corrupt foreign powers that share Donald Trump's core belief (or instincts) that there is no such thing as white collar crimes nor political crimes. Simply put, from his perspective, there is just business and politics. The winners do whatever it takes to win and find ways to bypass laws, regulations, treaties, morality, ethics, etc, etc.... because those boundaries (limitations) are for losers who get to the finishing line, but not willing cross over for the win. A true winner is willing to cheat to win, because in the mind of Donald Trump, there is no such thing as cheating, just winning. ie cheating is a winning strategy.
From the mind of Donald Trump: "Don't blame the winner for cheating, blame the looser for not cheating, or not willing to cheat enough to win. True winners ALWAYS win"
That is how he thinks, but that does not work in our country for very long, and Trump has lost far more often throughout his life than he has ever won, which is why Donald Trump is will be rejected by a huge margin in 2020 election. In the US, Donald Trump is the definition of a loser who can only beat others by using methods of losers. Winners don't need to lie, but Donald Trump lies every single day.
