Some Conservative Pundits See Trump As Just Another Money-Grubbing Politician.
Due to poor sales, Nordstrom dropped Ivanka’s product line this week. The “grab your wallet” campaign that boycotts companies that present conflicts of interest within the Trump administration, also claims responsibility. Value conservatives see Trumps avariciousness as a violation of ethics when Kelly Anne Conway pedaled Ivanka’s products on national television.

Trump Backpedaling On China.
After Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and White House aide Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, met with Chinese ambassador Cui Tiankai last week in Washington, the Trump administration said The U.S. would abide by the “one China” policy that effectively recognizes Beijing’s sovereignty over Taiwan.

Truly worrisome for any American, is the possibility that a member of the cabinet was complicit in breaking the law with a U.S. adversary. Nonetheless, U.S. Intel has confirmed that key conversations described in the work by former MI-6 Officer Christopher Steele did take place.
Anti-immigration advocates already knew that Trumps latest round up of illegals is not groundbreaking, Obama has done it more than any other President in history.
President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the “Deporter in Chief.” Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who “self-deported” or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
