    What is the big difference in what Trump is doing with his Son in Law than say a president who appoints his wife, who has no medical training, as a top advisor in reforming Health Care?

    The billionare owes at least a billion (3x more than he admitted) and His son-in -law has conflicts of interest of his own, let alone Trump's troubles.

The billionaire who becomes a politician, or the politician who wants to become a billionaire?

    So Trump reached across the aisle? Good for him.

    Kushner is not advising Trump on engineering, or surgery, or road building. He's literally advising Trump on what he thinks is best. Most people have friends and family who "advise" all the time. The concept of an advisor shouldn't be some alien concept.

    He's probably a Russian spy. LOL!

    No. Wait. Melania's the spy.

    I agree that Trump and Hillary both seemed to be on both sides of the issue depending on the audience
