The problem with this theory is that Trump is a notoriously terrible businessman. He has failed so badly that American banks have given him the boot, forcing him to turn to Russia to bail him out. The deal is that they bail him out and he launders their money. That’s why he is Putin’s pawn.
There is a corporate law of sorts that says that salesmen make terrible CEOs. Trump is purely a smoke and mirrors, bullshit salesmen. I can never understand why even some educated folks can’t see this so obvious fact.
