Donald Trump released current and former members of his administration from the terms of their ethics pledge.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump, in one of his final acts as president, released current and former members of his administration from the terms of their ethics pledge, a move that once again laid bare his failure to fulfil his 2016 campaign promise to “drain the swamp.”

Trump won the presidency, in part, on a pledge to take on entrenched special interests in Washington, and his ethics policy was one of his first acts after assuming office. [www.usnews.com]

The more you get to know Trump - the more obvious it becomes him and Obama were basically two peas in a pod. smiling smiley

Careful Indy! If you continue to liken Trump to Obama you'll alienate the one person on this board who doesn't think that you've gone off the deep end.

What pb thinks about Indy is that he is principled and admirable, something that can be said about few who voted for the perverted, demented, doddering old fart from Delaware.

Curt, as previously noted - you (and everyone else) are free to think about me however you wish. Unlike you and the rest of the... ahem... "centrists" - I'm not concerned with falling in line.

I'm in agreement with Indy when it comes to the realpolitik of Trump and Obama as opposed to the political theater.

Albeit Trump was much less Hawkish than Obama and also incidentally weaker on immigration policy.

Curt: I know progressives who condone rioting. Cascade is one on them.

I don't condone rioting (although I believe there are times when it is inevitable) and I also don't see progressives doing much rioting either. I see cops rioting. I see Proud Boys and (to a much lesser degree) antifa-types rioting. Progressives? Nope. In fact I'm very surprised at their ability to stay cool, calm and collected in the face of instigation by cops and their Proud Boy (former) friends.

I'd love to see how you'd fare on Cascade's Facebook page, Indy!. You'd probably fit right in.

I've never been on Facebook - don't have an account.

It will always be about Trump for you TDSers, eh, there, Curt!!!!!?

Do you know that Big Bro Joe is Prez now? Bahahahaha.

I can see it. On your deathbed, you'll curl your face a contortion of pain, weakly growl, "Trump," then pass on to the other world.

Trump rescinded his own ethics "rule" while he was president. That is what the report I quoted is about. It's not my fault that you're a little slow on the uptake.
