Letter: Quotes truly highlight Trump’s real motivation

With a preponderance of letters advocating for Donald Trump-endorsed candidates, a recap of recent history is in order.

Gen. James Mattis labeled Trump “a threat to the Constitution.” Gen. John Allen said, “Trump isn’t religious, has no need of religion and doesn’t care about the devout, except insofar as they serve his political needs.”

John Brennan, former head of the CIA, “like other unprincipled despots, he will use any tactic to retain power.” Richard Painter, Bush White House ethics lawyer, called the Trumps “an organized crime family” and Trump “an incompetent dictator.” Admiral William McRaven, who oversaw the Bin Laden raid, “Trump is actively working to undermine every major institution in this country.” Dick Cheney said Trump “is a coward, a real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters.” Brennan took a final shot at Trump, “I leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history and his legacy to a trash heap.”

What motivates Trump? Sex and money. Possibly by age 76, the order has been reversed.

White House security experts vetoed a clearance for Jared Kushner due to his susceptibility to foreign influence. Trump overrode the veto. Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman, aka Mohammed Bone Saws, has gifted Kushner with $2 billion over the objection of Saudi money managers.

With top secret nuclear documents being stolen, one is left in doubt as to the theft’s motivation being the penning of memoirs. If it did not occur to the reader, that the motivation was for sale to the highest bidder, you lack insight into Trump’s character, which was illuminated by the above quotations.
