I also was an investment banker and I am now and have been a entrepreneur businessman in the financial technology area for the last 25 years. I am a white man and over 60. A church elder. I am in the 2%. To the surprise and disappointment of many people I know and in spite of all the odds, I am a staunch Democrat. I was Executive Director of the South Carolina Democratic Party under Don Fowler.

Ich bin ein Portlander

Trumps were broke in 2015. Here's how I know.

I am President of a company that sells technology based services to businesses. in 2015 we were approached by a company called 21st Century TV to produce an infomercial. Common marketing strategy. Their claim to fame was that the host of the infomercial would be non-other than Donald J. Trump, Jr. They also would send on site a videographer that would do customer interviews.

We would then go to a professional studio for a day and shoot an in studio interview with a host. It would then be placed on Bloomberg and we would get the content to use in our promotions. Trump was to have been the host, but he canceled when the campaign started. We did it with another host.

The whole thing was less than 20k. The host not only has to be there for the half day shoot but prepare and practice questions. I canít imagine it would be more than a $3K to $5K payday for Trump. OK if you are a B list talking head, but this the supposed son of a billionaire. ???.

Her is an example of the work he was doing.

Portland protester strategy against the secret police

Understand that Trump sent these guys in to provoke a fight. He needs the image of police fighting with "rioters" that are fighting. Don't play into their hands. Be MLK smart. Sit on your Federal Court House property. Sing. Hold hands. They are there to start a fight. They have to please the boss. Let them. John Lewis knew they had won when the camera's got the picture of the dogs. Play this smart.
