Trump more corrupt than the Grant administration

Trump's is the most corrupt presidency in American history, ever.

His much discussed decision to bail out huge Chinese government owned cell phone maker ZTE by lifting sanctions against it, turns out to come just 72 hours after the Chinese government agreed to invest a cool half $billion into a Trump project.

This administration has NO SHAME. This is a clear violation of not only the emoluments clause in the Constitution that prohibits presidents from profiting from foreign payments, but it's also a serious national security issue, since ZTE phones have been determined to a major security threat to the USA.

WTF, you cons? Are you going to ignore this latest outrage like all the rest? Or will you finally act like the patriotic Americans you're always claiming to be?

????

This'll be blamed on Obama, Hillary, Democrats and liberals in general. It's OUR fault after all!  Cheesy

Been curious how the average Trump voter is rationalizing this.

I'm wondering how this ZTE payoff stacks up against Uranium One?  Any thoughts?

Correction: I said "More corrupt than the Grant administration". By this I mean that Trump, personally, and his family, are the most corrupt in American presidential history. Grant himself, personally, is generally regarded as having high ethical behavior, but not so the creeps he appointed. In Trump's case, he's not only appointed corrupt creeps, but he himself is extremely corrupt.

Quote:
Ulysses S. Grant (1869-1877) was elected as a war hero—the Northern General who’d defeated the South in the Civil War. After the shooting stopped, the United States were anything but united. The Southern states were crippled as the Northern ones prospered…and corruption ruled the land.

Grant’s popularity declined as evidence of serious political chicanery came to light. As money and land grants were given to railroad companies in the West, it was discovered that members of Congress were bribed to vote in the interests of the Union Pacific Railroad. In the Whiskey Ring Scandal, a group of distillers and tax officers defrauded the U.S. Treasury out of revenue tax on whiskey. Grant was not found personally responsible in either scandal, but lost support by appointing people who turned out to be dishonest, and continuing to back them after their dishonesty was revealed.¹

The visionary leadership that America needed after the Civil War, assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and divisive Presidency of Andrew Johnson, was not to be. In a time of money-grubbing self-interest, no constituency went less served than the former slaves over whom the Civil War had been fought. It is ironic that Grant’s narrow election victory was decided by African Americans in Southern states…considering that African Americans would have to wait another hundred years before their civil rights were finally legislated.

I know Grant's administration has historically been viewed as the most corrupt.

It's just...don't you think Grant is a little remote when it comes to making a political point? I mean, who is going to be moved by the comparison?

If you say so.

Compare Trump to Grant all you want. I just find the comparison amusing.
