(THREAD) Donald Trump promised he'd put #AmericaFirst. The past 2 years have proven that his agenda is #MeFirst. Rather than #DrainTheSwamp, he filled his cabinet with elitist & grifting billionaires who have capitalized on their office at taxpayer expense. #TrumpCorruption
No one has profited more from the Trump Administration than the Trump Family. In violation of the Constitution's Emoluments Clause, Trump retains ownership interests in his family business while he's in office. This is unprecedented. #AmericaFirst
When Jimmy Carter won the Presidency, he sold his family peanut farm in order to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest. Every modern President has put their assets in a blind trust - every President except for Trump. #AmericaFirst
At every opportunity since taking office, Trump has enriched himself. Trump's Inaugural Committee is under federal criminal investigation for illegal & foreign donations and beyond. Trump's hotel made millions during the inauguration.
Every time Trump travels to Mar-a-Lago, taxpayers foot a bill of ~$3.4 million. Much of this money is going into Trump's businesses. The same phenomenon is true when he visits his other resorts. #TrumpCorruption #MAGA
Trump's trademark hotel in DC - just 4 blocks away from the White House - is frequented by lobbyists & foreign officials who seek Trump Admin favors. Every time a foreign official stays at the hotel, Trump violates the Constitution. #TrumpCorruption politico.com/story/2018/12/…
After Trump's inauguration, the Chinese Government granted approval to 38 trademarks of Trump's name. Less than 6 months later, the PRC Gov't approved 9 add'l trademarks. #TrumpCorruption #NeedToImpeach #MAGA
Then there's the #GOPTaxScam, which gave nearly $2 trillion to Trump's billionaire buddies, while hurting the middle class. This year, millions of Americans have been stunned by smaller tax refunds, or even outstanding tax bills. #TrumpCorruption
Meanwhile, after passing the #TaxScamBill, Trump & the @GOP proposed to CUT:

$1.5 trillion from #Medicaid
$818 billion from #Medicare
$149 billion from federal retirees
$25 billion from #SocialSecurity

They are robbing the middle class to give to the 1%. #MAGA #TrumpCorruption
Trump didn't hire "the best people." He filled his cabinet w/ grifters - billionaires & multi-millionaires who used their positions to line their pockets. It's hard to keep track of how many top Trump officials have now resigned in scandal & disgrace. #TrumpCorruption #MAGA
Trump's Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, a longtime lobbyist for for-profit colleges, has aggressively rolled back student protections put in place during the Obama Era. DeVos protects companies she once worked for. #TrumpCorruption #MAGA
In Sep 2017, Trump's HHS Secretary, Tom Price, resigned in disgrace after a scandal of using taxpayer-funded private charter flights for expensive & unusual travel. He had to reimburse $400K to the US Treasury for his fraud. #TrumpCorruption #MAGA
Trump's HUD Secretary, @RealBenCarson, used taxpayer money to purchase a $31,000 dining set for his office, while at the same time slashing HUD programs for the homeless, elderly & poor. #MAGA #TrumpCorruption
In Dec 2018, Ryan Zinke, Trump's Interior Secretary resigned amid FIFTEEN ongoing corruption investigations tied to his real estate dealings in Montana and his abuse of power while in office. #TrumpCorruption #MAGA
Perhaps Trump's most notorious cabinet member was former @EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, who was forced to resign after multiple scandals including the purchase of a $43,000 phone booth for his office, officials stays at Trump hotels, & nepotism. #MAGA vox.com/2018/7/5/17192…
There is also Trump's former Veterans Affairs Secretary, David Shulkin, who was fired after yet another scandal involving expensive & exotic travel at taxpayer expense and accepting favors from lobbyists. #MAGA #TrumpCorruption
Don't forget current Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin who has his own travel scandal, but more importantly, has lifted sanctions on Russian companies run by a close Putin ally. #TrumpCorruption #MAGA nbcnews.com/politics/white…
.@IvankaTrump & @JaredKushner, who received TS clearances over objections from CIA, John Kelly & other senior officials, operate as "advisors" to @POTUS while aggressively pursuing their own foreign business interests. Saudi's Crown Prince MBS said Kushner was "in his pocket."
The Chinese Government has granted Ivanka's struggling brand over a dozen trademarks since Trump took office. #TrumpCrimeFamily #TrumpCorruption #MAGA citizensforethics.org/ivanka-trump-t…
The list of #TrumpCorruption examples is endless. Beyond Trump's many other failed policies (see below), he has demonstrated a policy of #MeFirst.

I could go on, but instead, I ask you to REPLY W/ OTHER EXAMPLES OF TRUMP CORRUPTION & I'll RT.
