Trump has lost a fortune while President

Here’s an inconvenient fact for American Liberals whose libels against President Trump include the frequently repeated claim that he is in the Presidency to advance the interests of Trump enterprises. This narrative would suggest Trump is making a fortune out of corrupt conflicts of interest between the President and his business interests. In fact the opposite is true:

Trump’s wealth has declined by $500,000,000 in the year since he took office. That suggests that he is neglecting his business interests and putting 100% of his effort into serving his country instead. While he has lost half a billion dollars since his election, the Dow Jones has increased in value by 6.9 Trillion dollars: That is already nearly half of what the market grew by in all eight years of the Obama administration. America is doing well under Trump:

I’m calling Bullshit on the whole “conflict of interests” accusation: the data proves the opposite. Trump has served the USA loyally, even to his own detriment. The man is a Patriot!
