    “The law’s totally on my side, meaning, the president can’t have a conflict of interest.”

    — Donald Trump, interview with the New York Times,Nov. 22, 2016

    Basically, paraphrasing Nixon, Trump is stating that the president is above the law.

    Someone has to clue him in. He was elected president, not emperor.

    He does have a phone and a pen, at this point what difference does it make?

    No, Trump is stating a fact. The president is not covered under federal conflict of interest laws. The office of president is excluded in the law. Further, we have never had a president with such far reaching financial assets.

    In other words, screw all those ethics and let Trump do whatever he could possibly want to increase his fortune.....after all, the sheep who voted for him are ripe for the slaughter.

    In other words, as OP, ..you were completely full of shit and the law IS completely on Trumps side AND he is in no way saying that he is above the law.

    Do you really doubt it? Hussein proved it to be the case. He should have been Impeached for his awful IRS and NSA abuses. But it didn't happen. So now it's Trump's turn to be above the law. Y'all haters are just gonna have to accept that. He has the pen now.

    No dumbass, you asked if I agreed or disagreed with Trump's statement. He was factually correct. You can't seem to grasp that.

    Obama was not a millionaire when he came into office, now he is worth something North of $7m. His eight year salary does not equate to that total. Question: How did he gain his wealth in office?

    I would have disagreed had the left's (once) New Messiah not demonstrated that Trump is absolutely correct.

    But, alas, He did. So now it's settled law. Suck it up, buttercups!
