The Trump Prevention Act of 2021

A prediction for you to consider

https://www.macleans.ca/opinion/the-trump-prevention-act-of-2021/

President Donald Trump will not be in the Oval Office forever. And when he eventually leaves, either in January of 2021 or four years later, American legislators are going to suddenly have a common cause: preventing the election of another President Trump.

This may seem unlikely but, as a thought experiment, set aside partisan differences and personal disdain and consider this:  Would the Republican party ever want a Democratic nominee to enter the White House without first releasing his or her tax returns? Would they tolerate a Democratic President profiting off of the presidency? Or filling their cabinet with “acting” appointments that require no congressional approval?

The Obamas just bought a 14 million dollar home on Martha's Vineyard but they didn't profit from the presidency?

I was thinking about that, Trump is not taking a salary, if he makes any money it is strictly off existing investments.   Both the clintons and obamas would be paupers if it were not for their involvement in politics.

Sorta like the great state of Arkansas, where, for many years they paid the Governor only a token sum.

Thinking was that if you're not smart enough to make a good living off this fat gig then you aren't smart enough to be Governor.
