There is an obsession in the liberal press about Donald Trump's opaque personal finances and the repeated appearance that he has a conflict of interest.
I am obsessed too. But I want him to have more conflicts.
I want a Trump Tower paying royalties to the Donald in every country that matters, indeed in most cities. I want them in countries that do not matter. Frankly I would love them all over China, India and Pakistan.
If the Donald leaves office safely with 100 billion dollar net worth it would be just fine with me.
You see if the Donald has economic interests in some country he will not wind up on any ill-advised military adventures there. Indeed he would tend to prefer open economic relations, as much as anything so he can get his cash out.
Trump corruption is wonderful then because it preserves the open and (relatively) peaceful world I like.
So please Donald - more conflicts of interest - big international conflicts of interest. I want them yuuuge.
Make me happy.
