Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This is exactly what Trump is doing. The USA has been suffering a sophisticated looting scheme since the '70s when corporate elites decided that the US was too expensive to support consumer manufacturing. But what Trump et al are doing is very much like what organized crime does. But this has been the Trump modus operandi at least since Fred Trump got going.
