We are only a week in to the unelected US Resident’s sole term in office (because there won’t be a second), and people are justifiably frightened and appalled by dictums from the dictator, worried that this will continue for four years. I don’t believe the circus clown Petty Cash is the one we should be worried about when there is something far worse.
If a US president leaves office, the vice president is promoted to the position. If the president leaves with less than two years remaining, then the vice president can still run for two full terms as president. I suspect Petty Cash is simply there to fill the seat for two years. His dictums are merely a distraction from the real concern, the power hehind the throne. Pence is the one making the policies that will stick.
As many are well aware, there are a large number of buildings with the name “Trump” on the, but Petty Cash does not actually own them. He is temporarily affiliated with a business at the beginning, but really only licenses his name. He continues to profit from them after he leaves.
I am beginning to suspect the same is true of him as the unelected Resident. He gives the false front of “being an outsider” while in reality is a puppet of those even wealthier than he is. These early atrocities are naught more than cutting off a cat’s tail, make the public ignore the more serious things going on behind closed doors. I suspect he is simply a cut out and will quit (I wouldn’t call it resigning) sometime in 2019, which would allow Pence to run for two full terms until 2028 – three terms in terms of the actual power he wields.
