Seven summit at his Florida Golf Course President Trump wanted us to know that he even take a salary like perhaps some say George Washington listen to how long it takes to make this point but I give away my presidential sour they say that no other president has done it I'm surprised to be honest with you. They actually say George Washington may may have been the only other president but see whether or not Obama game Salary see whether or not all of the other of your favorites give up this alary the answer is no all right let's figure out what he was saying here George Washington turns out was paid twenty five thousand dollars he took the twenty five thousand dollars to almost seven hundred thousand in today's dollars Washington did try to turn down the twenty five thousand dollars but the writers of the Constitution calculated that it was better to have a president who could focus on being the president then worrying about his outside business interests now trump's meandering repetitive defensive claim which by the way preceded hr that Barack Obama negotiated his netflix eggs deal while president that claim also we lighted other historical facts like president hoover and President Kennedy did giveaway there Risotto recap the president that trump said gave away his salary did not to presidents that did give away their salaries he did not mention which takes us to this next claim about George Washington but I was willing to do this for free and they would have had it would have been the greatest G. seven ever I would have said to my family because they run my business I don't run my business I actually put all the stuff entrusts they were I didn't have to do that but under no obligation you're not I don't know if you know George Washington he ran his business simultaneously while he was president many other presidents are too many really rich presidents but there were few they ran their business hey Obama made a deal for a book is running a business he didn't even discuss it while he was president yeah all right that was a really bad George Watson now about trump saying he puts his money in a trust yes the Investment v all his money is in is called trust but he's not a trust like we think of trust it is not a blind trust it is a trust controlled by trump executive Alan Weisselberg and donald trump junior past presidents have used a blind trust controlled by an outside Party a third party eighty and they are not told how trust is performing now it is true from what I understand that Donald Junior actually can't let his father how his trust is doing but the chairman of Trump's advisory board can make those disclosures to the president and chairman's name is Eric trump who told Forbes that each quarter he would give his father financial briefings so the kids are talented that is what I'm saying and what I'm further saying is that the word trust and the trumps are somewhat at odds who knew on the show today the trump administration's great and lasting contribution to society it will be in the realm of the linguistic but I know all that stuff trump was saying what if it were said by a sage and resonant voice what if Morgan Freeman were saying it what if I don't know Jeremy Irons at his poshest were saying and Joseph Marx Messengers who we listened to but we don't and what I trust these guys they have good accents from Connecticut to California for Mrs sippy to Minnesota millions of American businesses are using Google tools to grow online businesses strider bikes in rapid city.
