And his actions are transparent to the American people -- and everyone else in the world.
Every day, the C-Span camera in the lobby watches the people enter those golden elevators to the sky.
When have we ever had such transparency? Obama made his White House visitor's list available, sure, but people started signing in as Bill Ayers. Ha ha ha.
The staging is excellent, as is the lighting. The world is seeing the opulence of capitalism. That is a good advertisement for the USA. Americans have chosen as their president one of their 540 billionaires.
In March, Forbes reported:
While the rest of the world continues to mint fortunes at a fast pace -- including 70 new billionaires from China this year alone -- the United States still reigns supreme. America boasts 540 billionaires, more than any other country on the planet and more than all of Europe combined.
It was a rough year for the world’s wealthiest, who faced uncertain markets and the continued decline in oil prices, plus the ongoing Syrian Civil War that has disrupted European economies and created some 18 million Syrian refugees and people in need. In total 221 former billionaires fell off the list (though 198 newcomers joined) and the average billionaire’s net worth dropped $280 million, from $3.86 billion to $3.58 billion, last year. Americans were hit harder than average: The typical U.S. billionaire lost nearly $350 million, or about 7% of his wealth, falling from an average net worth of $4.79 billion to $4.44 billion within one year.American billionaires have made their money in computers (Gates, etc.), corporate turnarounds (Buffett), retail (Bezos), news (Bloomberg), and every other facet of commerce. Forbes lists Trump at No. 336, but his $10 billion fortune should rank him No. 104.
What do we care?
The daily show at Trump Tower is boring, but lavish and important with President Trump occasionally descending to make an announcement or take a question or two. It would do him and the nation well to spend as much time as he can at Trump Tower, conducting business in the open.
The world is watching.
Put on a good show.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
