Donald Trump, Casino President
Donald Trump was born rich, with already more than enough money to live an entire life at ease. With millions upon millions upon further millions in wealth given to him by his ultra-rich parents, Donald Trump had his choice about what to do with his money.
Trump’s choice: he put his money into casinos. The entire basis of profit for a casino is a two-stage ruse. First, convince people that they have a reasonable chance to win a big gobs of money if they just give the casinos the little bits of money they’ve got. Second, rig the games so that in the long run, the casino always wins. Casinos make money by preying on people who buy the ruse, who don’t understand sophisticated probability rules, and who fall for the ploy.
Casinos are run by people who see the world as populated by suckers who need to be suckered. Donald Trump has built his empire by trying to fool, dupe, and sucker the people who enter his domain, and build his own wealth on their misfortune. Should a man with those priorities be elevated to the most powerful position on the planet?
