There are literally hundreds of articles on this exact topic

:shock:

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-s ... es-2018-10

"Trump has had ties to Saudi investors for over two decades"

"In 2016, the New York Daily News reported that the Saudi government also purchased the entire 45th floor of the Trump World Tower, for $4.5 million, in June 2001. Given annual fee fares for the building at the time, Trump also was paid $5.7 million by the Saudis between the purchase and 2016, the paper reported."
NONE of that would indicate he "IS (emphasis added) running around cutting real estate deals all over the middle east"...all of that was before he was president. Your post implies "currently"..."right now"..."as we speak"...

He's got significant middle east interests that wars will damage the value of
that is why he's not an "interventionist" because it's bad for his business

Trump looks after Trump first
and anybody confused about that needs to take an IQ test

Trump will do what's best for him; America means nothing.

If he thinks attacking Iran benefits him in any way, he'll do it.

I already did that. :nod: :nod: You stated the family IS BUSY cutting real estate deals all over the Middle East. Implying they're currently buying shit right, in the present, at the present time, today. Then post shit from years ago. Surely even you can see the difference?

40 million dollars on apartments in the Middle East?

Cute but the intended implication is false. Obama is not like that. Hilary may be. Elizabeth Warren is not like that. Don't particularly like her. But she's not like that. She's a true idealogue.

This thing of acting like all the other politicians are just like Trump in that sense is nonsense. They're not. Trump is worse in that regard by orders of magnitude.

Obama made millions giving speeches at Wall Street banks. Those are nothing but a way for them to say "thanks for not breaking us up and ensuring Dodd Frank will affect small banks and not us".

Basically, I don't know if anyone has ever been a POTUS, a leading member of congress, or in a major cabinet position and not enriched themselves in office.

Lizzie Warren might be mostly clean, but of course she has never been in a position high enough to really enrich herself.

Harvard paid her in the high six figures and gave her a platform to make big bucks writing books and counseling big companies about bankruptcy issues. Reason #37,154 why I no longer give to Harvard.

America does mean something to Obama. The idea that Obama would attack Iran just because it benefits him is false. Same with other Presidents we've had. Except for Trump.

Trump literally DOES fit the blank. He DOES do what he thinks is best for him and American means nothing.

Trying to act like others are like him is intellectually dishonest. Or maybe it's misinformed. They're not.

The Harvard of the Palouse’s endowment is ranked right between LeTourneau U and Spartanburg Methodist College at $22 Million. That’s 759th out of 809. And we’re trying to update our high school stadium.

We are far more in need and worthy of your gracious giving than Cedar Rapids CC or the Military College of East South Carolina.
