The president has said he’s “very proud” of the state and claimed that he “turned West Virginia around.”State’s plight offers broader message about a U.S. economy where workers at bottom aren’t reaping rewards of growth

“the Trump campaign in 2016 was merely a vehicle for various grifters and opportunists to get rich. I still believe none of these people had the foggiest notion that Trump would become president*. But if your primary goal in life is to grab enough loot from enough places, a political campaign is a nice fat turkey to be sliced up. So I think they all had their own agendas, including the president*, and all of them were sort of in business for themselves, but under the Trump flag, as the Gambinos used to put it. Most of them had been working in a corrupt business enterprise for decades before it turned itself into a political campaign and then a presidency*.”
The Cohen and Manafort developments could be a mortal blow to the Trump presidency—and Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.. Nobody can deny that this already is the single most awesome infrastructure week ever.
