Commerce Secretary Laughs How Syria Strikes Was Dinner “Entertainment” For Trump
President Donald Trump loves to entertain himself and his elite friends at the expense of others.
This was made painfully apparent recently by the way Trump allocated $120 million in taxpayer funds to pay for security costs for himself and his family.
As part of this arrangement, U.S. Secret Service was forced to rent out a floor of Trump Tower, with the rent going to the Trump Organization.
Far worse than this, however, is the way Trump has, according to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, been using America’s military power as after-dinner entertainment for his guests.
In April, Trump ordered a 59 Tomahawk missile airstrike on an Assad-controlled airfield in Syria.
Wilbur Ross was on hand at Trump’s luxury golf resort Mar-a-Lago when Trump announced the military action, and he told the story to an audience at the Milken Institute Global Conference.
Stated billionaire financier Ross about how Trump’s Florida dinner meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping was interrupted, “Just as dessert was being served, the president explained to Mr. Xi he had something he wanted to tell him, which was the launching of 59 missiles into Syria. It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment.”
This anecdote made Ross’s audience laugh, and he continued, “The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment.”
Are you disgusted by Trump and his billionaire cabinet members like Ross?
