President Corporation

Some years back, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Citizens United, which, simply put, granted “personhood” to corporations. If a corporation is a person, that “person” can run for president. And win. Surprise. We now have President Corporation Trump. Donald J. Trump Inc. is building a shadow (alt-right, parallel universe, take your pick) government with its base of power and operations in Trump Towers and Mar-a-Lago.

New York and Florida. Outside of Washington, D.C. It really doesn’t matter where you stand on the political spectrum. We all love our nation. Beware the seriousness of the unprecedented constitutional crises Team Trump Incorporated is unleashing on America and the American people.
