Paul Krugman Warns of Unprecedented Trump Corruption to Come

Last updated on July 17th, 2023 at 09:34 pm

In a series of tweets this morning, Nobel laureate, economist, and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, warned that we are “about to enter, or may have already entered, an era of corrupt governance unprecedented in U.S. history.”

Further tweets elaborated on the nature of the threat posed by a Trump administration that we face as a nation:

As Krugman warned Sunday,

“It was obvious that Trump would exploit office for personal gain to an unprecedented degree. He has already started.”

The president-elect’s administration is filling with lobbyists, and his infrastructure rhetoric is just a huge tax break for corporations and, Krugman has suggested, a “privatization bid.”

The mainstream media is again cooperating with Trump, largely ignoring his Trump U. settlement, let alone drawing any reasonable conclusions from it. Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert, on the other hand, noted that,

“[It] turns out crooked Trump Foundation is EXACTLY what DC press fantasized that Clinton Foundation was. press reax to $25M settlement? meh.”

Two things are already clear: the evidence is mounting steadily that Trump never meant to make America great but to fill his own pockets, and that the mainstream media, complicit in his election, now intends to normalize (and profit by) the new low in the swamp Trump once promised to drain but is now rapidly filling instead.
