Trump's Pledge Pedigree: Don't Hold Your Breath for The Money

Good Day World!

Morning refresher: when you pledge to give money it's assumed you'll deliver on your promise.

Will someone tell that clown in the Oval Office to put up or shut up?

Last month, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the website Politifact that Trump "will be giving" his salary "back to Treasury or donating." 

The site noted the White House "declined to answer several inquiries into whether Trump has gotten a paycheck already."

When they finally did admit he's collected a couple of paychecks they said he'd donate his whole salary at the end of the year.

I hope no one hold's their breath on that one.

Why do I have the feeling the American public is being conned once again?

What do you think the chances are that we'll ever know if Stump screwed us?

During the transition, Chump also unveiled a plan to "donate all profits from foreign governments' patronage of his hotels and similar businesses" to the Treasury Department. 

The plan was released by Lump's private law firm, Morgan Lewis, but no system or accounting has been released for how or when such donations will be processed or disclosed.

And don't expect one soon. Thump and cronies will be throwing out so much news flack that no one will have time to really investigate if he is pocketing that money.

The chance that the Treasury Department will ever get a dollar of Rump's money is about as slim as a snake willingly going on a starvation diet.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
