Koch’s team to meet Trump’s camp, but industrialist remains skeptical

by Fredreka Schouten  |  published on June 9, 2016

Top officials within Charles Koch’s powerful policy network plan to meet with aides to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, the industrialist told USA TODAY on Wednesday.

The meeting comes at the request of the Trump team, Koch said. No date has been set for the gathering, which has not been publicly disclosed before.

“We are happy to talk to anybody and hope they understand where we’re coming from, and they will have more constructive positions than they’ve had,” Koch said of the sit-down with Trump’s team.

That doesn’t mean Koch, one of the biggest financial players in Republican politics, will endorse the brash billionaire or open his bank accounts to back his presidential bid. In a wide-ranging interview, he criticized Trump’s recent comments about the Mexican heritage of a federal judge overseeing a civil fraud case against his now-shuttered Trump University. Last week, Trump suggested that Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who was born in Indiana, was not handling the case fairly because of Trump’s stances on immigration — a position denounced by Democrats and several Republicans, who moved this week to distance themselves from the GOP’s standard-bearer.

    Does that donkey dung democrap ever stop? False battery charges, false pedophile charges, now this…

    “The federal judge appointed by Barack Obama presiding over the class-action lawsuit against Trump University is a member of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, a latino group that translates to “The Race.”

    According to a 2014 Annual Dinner and Gala brochure, Judge Gonzalo Curiel was listed as a member of the Scholarship Selection Committee. In the same brochure, the plaintiff law firm, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP, were listed as sponsors for the event.”
    http://followtrump.net/attorneys-suing-trump-u-paid-675000-to-clintons-for-speeches/
    Documents released Wednesday in a case accusing Trump University of fraud confirmed the law firm behind the national class-action lawsuit against Trump University paid Bill and Hillary Clinton a total of $675,000 for speeches.

    Trump is verbalizing what tens o millions of ordinary citizens are thinking. That is what has the Republican elitists so terrified. They are used to telling us ordinary citizens what we must do and that is just not working this time around. I would say that is a very good thing because it’s treasonous politicians that have gotten America in deep deep trouble. It’s long past the time that we the people open our eyes and now our mouths and tell the political class “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”. Will they listen? If they want to remain relevant and employed they had better. We outnumber them 535 to 300,000,000. and change. And Trump has done an excellent job of waking us up.

  • bobnstuff

    Why would the Kock Bro. not love Trump? They are conservatives, Trump’s not They are good business men, Trump’s not. Most important is they are not Crazy.

  • Jack C Newkirk

    Most of the Republican establishment power players have their heads so far into deep dark tunnels that their brains are dying from lack of oxygen.

  • SCSOCAL

    Trump U was a hit piece by Hillary. The judge is biased. He is voting for Hillary.
    It is the Clinton Attorneys who are prosecuting the case. The judge not only belongs to La Raza Attorney Group which has connections via their websites to La Raza but he belongs to a group call Border Angels who support Illegal immigrants and help them monetarily. The original plantif in the case has dropped out saying she was misled by the attorneys and that her experience with Trump U was good. The Clinton’s have been involved in a similar school and now people are starting to come forward to out them! Always the double standard with the media and the left!!!! This judge should definitely recuse himself. We know there are many Obama appointed judges in the system who decide cases on their bias. Many examples.

    • I Seigel

      Yeah, it’s all Hillary’s fault. She’s also shipping in illegals and making businesses hire them, and she’s the one causing climate change. The earthquakes in Oklahoma are her fault, too. Has anyone asked to see HER birth certificate?

    • reggie

      The false pedophile accusation didn’t stick, the false battery against the reporter didn’t stick, so the ante is upped.

  • ONTIME

    The Koch’s are now playing for position to enhance their empire, they have essentially backed a criminal called Shrillary..to me this cancels out any and all respect I have for them and I question their loyalty and sanity…..Hiring politicians to be your whore is expensive…..

      .
      . Is that any different than SOROS hiring the rioters in ferguson or other places that the blm thugs are disrupting society?

      • reggie

        And blaming Trump when Bill Ayers, a Weatherman terrorist, was up front smiling for the cameras in the Chicago riots.

  • YOLADANE

    Donald Trump is fighting EVERYBODY except WE THE PEOPLE. This is PATHETIC. It shows us just how TOTALLY CORRUPT the whole system really is. The ONLY media figure who shows Trump in a positive way is HANNITY, oh and MICHAEL SAVAGE. If you notice the rest of the MEDIA, THE REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS are stone NEGATIVE when it comes to TRUMP. Anybody who thinks for themselves knows that TRUMP is just the MAN we ALL need to save this country.

    • Rodney Steward

      All this is for a reason, they WANT Hellary, she’ll guarantee their only love, MONEY = POWER!!

    • bobnstuff

      Hannity said he is not a journalist when Trump is involved, I think he has a man crush on him.

      • Rodney Steward

        Maybe he likes real men, and not queers that light up the White house in rainbow colors!

        • bobnstuff

          I’m sure Hannity love orange men over black. Since around 10% of American are gay I would say lighting up the White House was a smart mover, plus guys have more money to give to candidates.

          • Rodney Steward

            I guess U have to like queers to appreciate that move, and what is a orange color, new one on me, and by the way, it’s only 3% that are queer!

      • shirleypatriot

        Oh yes, let’s see if he’s for Trump there must be something wrong with him! Give me a break!! I’m a female (the gender that is supposed to be against Trump!) and I LOVE Trump but do not have a ‘crush” on him. Wake up you idiot!!

  • Rosemarie Saccardi

    We the people rule They are not use to it The time has come for a tske over all republicans who cannot stand with the voice of the American people all people need not to be re elected All of this to me is not just against Trump BUT AGAINST OUR VOTE. WHERE IS OUR DEMOCRACY. .??? Wake up America if you think this is bad remember how it has been and say GOOD BY TO AMERICA IF CROOKED HELIARY GETS IN.
    REMEMBER bathroom issues Remember not being able to say Merry Christmas. I call on all people no matter what party what color what religion SAVE AMERICA JOIN US ON THE TRUMP TRAIN TO MAKE America Great AGAIN WITH THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE AND DONALD TRUMP

    • TeaPartyPatriot

      You’re right, all this confusion by the media and press is an attempt to circumvent the will of the people. We are tired of the professional politicians who have taken over the government since the days of FDR. We want citizen lawmakers who write laws in ENGLISH not legalese. We should require term limits and that every bill passed by congress is written and read by the congressmen voting on the bill. HE/She can get assistance writing the bill but no more ghost authors of legislation. Currently few of the bills in congress have been written by the senators or representatives but have been provided to the politicians by lobbyists who have an interest in having a specific bill passed which is to their employers advantage. The 0webomb euthanasia/genocide plan is a good example. It was written by the insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies to their great advantage.

  • GJK

    you will have to dig a lot deeper to get the facts on the judge. I was reported by three different persons of the political and social Direct connections this judge has made which again has gone unreported. I really hate this as good people like in this blog who are really after the truth like me have to dig so deep to find it. Aren’t you tired of this, as I know I am. I really don’t take any joy at all on these subjects because all of us feel we are getting the straight information…. I wish a forum could be created where everyone of the yahoos with a political agenda would have to give an account of what they are writing. This country is “really” filled with a bunch of good people and we just don’t hear that enough.

    • Rodney Steward

      This judge being appointed by Obama is all I needed to hear, remember this President never goes anything for the good of our country!

      • bobnstuff

        No new wars isn’t good for the country? You liked the body bags coming home under the last president. I guess you enjoyed having your insurance canceled if you used it. If you step back and forget he is a black Democrat and look at what he has done you might be surprised how much like a republican he is.

        • Rodney Steward

          No new war, why did he just send 250 more troops over there, and is planning on sending more! AND Bobby, 3 body bags came home in the past 3 weeks! You’re gonna have to buy a TV and keep up with workings of the black house clowns, the War is not over, it’s just another lie of your Prez!

          • bobnstuff

            You like 50,000 troops instead? 20 body bags came home last year. Right now it’s safer for a young man to be in the service then to be at home. ISIS is falling and we are letting the people of the country they are in fight them. Not our Dog not our fight.

          • Rodney Steward

            I agree about the war, but your Prez and soon to be Prez Hellary are making a fortune $$$$ selling guns to the terrorist, why do U think the let the people of Benghazi die, so they wouldn’t spill the beans, dead men can’t talk!!

          • bobnstuff

            It’s the Republicans and the NRA that are fighting to sell guns to terrorists, there is a UN resolution that the Republicans have been fighting that is meant to stop sales of guns to terrorists that Kerry is signing anyway today. The President and Hillary had nothing to do with letting Stevenson die. The stand down came from the military and never made it to the president.

          • Rodney Steward

            MY God Tommy, you are truly one sick puppy, and you’ve gone from being a Kool-Aid drinker to a full blown Dem. Sh$t eater! This is the sickest thing I’ve ever heard U say! So the NRA that fights for OUR 2nd Amendment Rights as Americans, are helping the Terrorist! You’ve been dumbed down to the MAX! U NEED HELP!!

          • bobnstuff

            https://www.nraila.org/articles/20120713/nra-fights-for-second-amendment-as-un-moves-forward-on-arms-trade-treaty
            The fact that this treaty is on international arms dealing and doesn’t effect our 2nd amendment rights seems to be lost on the NRA or maybe it the boss’s at the gun manufactures that want to keep sell guns to terrorist’s.

          • Rodney Steward

            Did U read this, this is the NRA trying to keep our 2nd Amendment Right, and not fall pray to the UN! The UN is our enemy, they are pushing for world gun control, and climate change, the world bank, world Church, and more! They are pushing the NWO, my God Bobby, WAKE UP !!

          • bobnstuff

            Everyone is your enemy, you are afraid of everything. Do you know that this resolution does not apply to our 2nd amendment only to international arms sales. In case you haven’t notice the climate is changing, I can grow thing in my garden I could never do before and they have bumped my region into the next warmer zone. Just because you don’t understand things doesn’t make it bad. I bet you are still afraid that the communists are going to take over the world. I think your tin foil hat my be a little tight,

          • Rodney Steward

            LOL, LOL, MY GARDEN is KICKEN, and lol, climate change is for people that have the same sickness as the FARRRRR left idiots! Remember, a BROKE clock is right twice a day, and be careful, the sky is falling also! And for Tin Hats, at least it’s on my head and not up my a$$ !! Please tell your mother you’re sorry for being so blind to the truth! HAAAAAA ……………..

          • bobnstuff

            Gee, there is a golf course in Scotland that wants to build a seawall to protect it from the effects of climate change, it said so in it’s paperwork. I wonder who owns that golf course? It’s funny that when a Republican talks about Climate Change they always start with “I not a scientist but” as if we didn’t know by their next statement that they really aren’t scientists.

          • Rodney Steward

            Have U even noticed that they changed the name from global warming to climate change because they couldn’t prove that the world was warming enough! And how in the he$$ is a seawall going to help climate change, keep golf balls from going into the ocean!! And U do know that 80% of the scientist say this is a big lie!!

          • bobnstuff

            Ask Mr Trump who it will help since he’s the one who asked for it.

          • Rodney Steward

            Ask for WHAT, how many glasses of Kool-Aid have U consumed to day! You have a REAL Uninformed problem, get help or a TV!! WOWWWWW!

          • bobnstuff

            See my post above for what Obama has do for the country. I could add reducing the number of illegals by 40%, doubling the border patrol on our southern border.

  • GJK

    No so for the Koch Brothers they are industrialists please get your facts straight. Koch has been against Illegal aliens period. Oh and one other note there is no such thing as Illegal immigrants Not as a slam to you because You stated they were illegals which is correct! 🙂

    • reggie

      I love “undocumented workers” even more. Was going to say something nasty, but guess I’ll pass. As the kid of a legal immigrant who did what heeded to be done, learned the language and never demanded a thing, it really pizzes me off to see what the brown trash gets away with.

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    Denying each other the opportunity to seek their differences is not a wise idea. it is always important to reach out to each other, identify their differences in order to arrive at a productive and constructive resolution for the interest of our country, for each other, and for the American people.

    • Rodney Steward

      Be nice if it worked that way, they have a dog eat dog life style, to he$$ with the people, just Show Me The MONEY!!

  • Richard Bagenstose

    the koch’s are a bunch of shisters just like soros and buffet, always looking out for there selves, fix these trade deals and they lose billions and have to pay a living wage to americans again, just like there boston beer , 3 out of every 4 employees are temps forced to work less then 30 hours a week , for 12.00 an hour and driven like slaves while the full time people are the slave drivers, i know i worked there for over 2 years ,

    • reggie

      The trade deals are the final straw. The US won’t survive them. It will be just another 3rd world country with the elites and the street beggars.

          Roger that! Congress and the SCOTUS has been holding the population hostage for more decades that I want to admit. Time for a real change back to the words of the founding documents. The Constitution IS NOT A DYNAMIC DOCUMENT AS THE LIBERALS WOULD LIKE TO PRETEND. It says what it means and means what it says and not what some activist judges say it means.

          • FREDKIELY

            We use to call politicians public servants, now the public are the servants. We have a horrible problem with the U. S. Supreme Court. They are more interested in making their decisions based on political reasons rather than the rule of law. When you have three judges seeing a case one way and three seeing it the other way then one judge is left to make the decision right or wrong. Now their are complaints that there are three judges who are Jews., complaints that there are to many Catholics. They are dived on almost everything except their political choice, which makes them divided their also. It’s all wrong they are there to only interpret the law as it was written.

          Bernie was interviewed by Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. I seriously doubt they wanted to talk him into getting out. If Hilary is cornered she may start giving names and that cannot happen. We know she could not get away with all of this without some powerful support. if I was her I would just drop out and go to her little Island in Port De Prince ., but then some people feel they are so above the Law they cannot be touched.

            If this is not bad enough. The same Law Firm that is a big contributor to the Hilary Clinton campaign, also spent $650,000 to keep the lawsuit against Trump on the Trump University case. Sorry I didn’t write down their names. We know the President has the power to Pardon himself and Hilary if she gets caught on these e-mails, but if Russia and North Korea become friends with Trump they could release the Thirty-thousand e-mails with Top Secret information regarding our Country’s Spies and their names. That goes to a higher level of Crime threating our National Security .

      Stop listening to the liberal media ! .
      .
      They are trained in “journalism?” school to twist or spin a persons words so that the true meaning is hard to detect. What do you think they do at a re-write desk in the news room? Do they Rewrite a story with the same slant? Hell no ! ! ! They change the readers interpretation of the same facts as were presented originally. If the original copy was liberal they may make it even more liberal. If the original copy was complimentary conservative they may make it liberal or failing that replace it with a tale about a child eating an ice cream cone.

      • speedle24

        You’re spot on with this. The problem is 90% of the millennials watch and listen to nothing but national media. They are stone ignorant about the facts of life and politics.

        • How true! The problem arises from the fact that today’s public and higher education facilities no longer teach our students how to think but to accept as truth everything they see on the Internet and television. Whatever happened to “Question Everything?” It all boils down to what I’ve been saying for a long time: “The dumbing of America has succeeded beyond our wildest expectations.” God save us.

      • bobnstuff

        You have never taken a journalism class in your like and it would seem you have no knowledge of how the media work. First there is a mix of left , center and right leaning media. Second the media’s job is to make money and does what it takes to do that. It’s a business first. Journalism schools try to teach students to get the story right and present the facts in a way that the reader can understand them. You seem to be confused. Fox is not a news station and Hannity is not a journalist. They tell you that up front. The editorial page in your paper is not news either, it’s opinion. The media will select what stories they want to tell but that’s because they are targeting a type of viewer. They will sell access to those viewers to there advertisers. You can tell who they are targeting buy what they show you and tell you. It’s all about money. Elections are the cash cow of the media, Many media groups make all their profits in election years. They will tell you that it’s a tight race every time so you will keep watching and the candidates will keep spending. Koch could kick in a billion dollars and the media is sitting back licking their lips.

          .
          Sorry Bobnstuff

          I have an intimate knowledge of the media particularly the written media. I worked for over 30 years on newspapers in the composing room and saw how news is slanted. There may be a mix of left center and right but any poll of the news staff in all but a very few newspapers will show that the employees are overwhelmingly liberal nearly every newspaper is owned by bleeding heart liberals McClatchy hearst NYT Milw.Journal Sentinel, St louis Globe DEMOCRAT, Chicago Trib, Oakland Trib, ,San Jose Mercury News, Seattle PI, Wash Post, HUFF and PUFF, ad infinitum and since the editors or owners are liberal you damn well better toe the liberal mark or you are looking for new employment. Newspapers for the most part are not owned for making a profit from the newspapers They are owned for the influence they have on the politics of the area. Newspapers make their money by peddling influence in the local marketplace.

          • bobnstuff

            News papers are dying but for every liberal one there is a conservative one. I spent my time in the media, not just doing layout. I have owned an ad agency been a write producer and worked in radio. I got my start in the same station as Rush did. I have been quoted on the front page of the WSJ. If you move into the 21st century you will see that the big media giant is iHeart Media. They control more media outlets and are conservative. Guess who owns a bunch of it, our good friends at Bain Cappital.

            One word for You, Caca de Toro..
            like I said I worked for over thirty years in newspapers large and small from San Jose to Seattle to Detroit to St Louis , to Hayward to Sacramento and many points in between. Not once was there a conservative newspaper in sight. I personally have set the type and made the rewrite changes ordered by the rewrite desk. changing the slant of the story from neutral to liberal, From conservative to neutral and from conservative to selling girl scout cookies, Never in over 30 years have I seen a metropolitan daily newspaper espouse conservative principles.
            I have often said that if you see it printed in a newspaper you can be absolutely certain that at some time in the history of mankind these events MAY have happened

            I guess you don’t read any of these papers, The Washington Times for one is conservative, yes, crap yes but conservative crap. I didn’t put together this list but instead went to a right wing site. As for the Pittsburgh Trub it is a major metro news paper. 80,000 daily, 107,000 Sunday. They are moving into the electronic age and have tied them selves up with both radio and TV stations. They picked a conservative talk station KQV, one of the oldest radio stations in the country. Back in the day they employed a DJ who later became a conservative icon, you may have heard of him Rush Limbaugh although back then he was Jeff Christie.
            Print is dying. We are in a whole new world and print news just isn’t going to make it.

            You’re 40 years late in your declaration that printed newspapers are dying. Those of us actually in the newspaper business knew this long ago and found other careers.
            You got your list from newsmax and newsmax is far from a conservative source and UK stands for UNITED KINGDOM is it not a Us metropolitan newspaper. The Guardian (TheGuardian.com) is the worlds leading liberal voice., In other words what you say is caca de toro.

      They have had their heads up the Jackasses backside far to long and
      have grown accustomed to the scent. The GOP had turned deserted
      their base a long time ago for politics, fame and personal wealth at
      the TAX PAYERS expense. It all depends upon which terminal
      case of political speak they are fed on any given day and the time
      of day also. We do have a few (VERY FEW) men and women of
      morals and character left in the political spectrum. The vast
      majority of them are LAWYERS who were brainwashed from day
      one to lie, lie, lie and never under any circumstance tell the truth.

        jAMES mAXWELL, you hit the nail on the head !! KUDOS !!!

    • Mike N

      You can’t totally blame the Republicans. Trump is a disaster and should never have been the nominee. He is a loose cannon. Unfortunately to avoid Clinton we need to vote for him.

      • reggie

        I may be 100% wrong, but think there’s a lot going on under the bluster and bs. He stood up for us with Carrier and Ford. He wants jobs back here. He’s not a greasy, polished politician. He wants illegals out, he doesn’t want Muslims in until they’re vetted. That should not take rocket science. He’s no fool, knows he can’t do it alone, and will hire the best. I personally don’t expect him to know the ins and outs of foreign diplomacies, but I do expect that he’ll find someone well qualified who does.

        • Mike N

          I hope you are right, but I don’t trust him. He has already backed down on some of his promises. He said that he would be self funding and now he is not. He never said that he would be self funding for the primaries only. He now says that everything is negotiable and has said that some things were just suggestions. Also just for information Carrier left because of exorbitant union wages demands that carrier couldn’t meet and still compete and not because of government regulations. I will vote for Trump, but I don’t trust him as I said.

          • reggie

            Good points. I don’t begrudge the funding issue because of the crap from klinton the accusations, the money backers she has on both sides of the aisle. I also wonder if he’s surprised that he’s the last one standing, and didn’t expect to go to the convention. I also like him because the dempcraps and the rinorats all hate him. He must be doing something right. Re the wages – if it wasn’t so pathetic – the government wants to pay hamburger flippers $15/hr, bye bye jobs. The governor of IN is not happy because apparently Carrier has been given various grants and incentives. Their techs receive $54,478 after 20 years. CEO Chris Nelson made 2,132,014 accumulated in 2006, at Farmers’ Bank. No other information is available that I could find.

          • Mike N

            Sounds like you know more about Carrier than I do. $54,478 for a tech of 20 years is certainly not much. I would be looking for another job. Personally I think you are right that Trump did not expect to be the last man standing. I think he was just in for the attention and then it took off.

          • reggie

            About 50% of my job is research, I just keep digging and cross referencing. This kind of ‘work’ is a break for my brain.

      • kathy diamond

        Mike N. You don’t know that. Just because he reacts exactly like We The People do when he’s fighting doesn’t mean loose cannon. Give him a chance. Remember, what we have had for 8 years, then think about what we can have. Basically, We can have OUR COUNTRY BACK and someone in the White House to Fight for ” WE THE PEOPLE”

        • Mike N

          We’re stuck with him so I hope you are right. I agree that he can’t be worse than Obama or Hillary. We can’t afford four more years of either. I just wish that we had a true conservative for our nominee and not someone that has supported Obama and Hillary in the past.

          • kathy diamond

            Mike N., I understand what your concerns are but I have always considered myself a good judge of charater & I truly believe we can trust him. If the way he has fought for the nomination is an example of how he will fight for the American People, we can’t lose. We will pray for him & us. I fear for his safety.

          • Mike N

            I hope you are right. He has a questionable past having supported both Obama and Hillary.

      The GOP needs money and are only supporting Trump to secure their Position as the Senators and Congressman . The idea that they may have to go out and get a job strikes terror into their hearts. A lot of their money was spent on ” Never Trump”. That is what Speaker Paul Ryan meant when he said it was a grueling campaign, but I still have not decided to support Trump”. They want to share the expense and go 50/50 with Trump in order to save the Republican Party.

    • Vangie Martinez

      Judas has been revealed.

  • WeirOnlyHuman

    Trump has every right to question the validity of a judge who is associated with La Raza, the radical Mexican group that supports giving Texas, Arizona and California back to Mexico. After all, Trump has made clear his intention to build a wall between the 2 countries. How can such a judge rule fairly in such a situation? He should recuse himself!

    • 1John_Galt2

      Agree! Trump needs to talk more about the links to La Raza and what it stands for instead of making it appear to be about a Judge being Mexican.

      • bernie

        This Judge oversaw the ” Gift” of a Law School Scholarship to an Illegal Alien. The Daily Caller reports, I can’t understand why no one, including Trump isn’t jumping on this? They must surely know about this?
        TRUMP !!!!!!!

        • 1John_Galt2

          Thanks for this info. I will look it up.

          • bernie

            It’s a good Article.

        • reggie

          Documents released Wednesday in a case accusing Trump University of fraud confirmed the law firm behind the national class-action lawsuit against Trump University paid Bill and Hillary Clinton a total of $675,000 for speeches.

    • James Maxwell

      The Judge has connections with “La Raza” & “La Razy Unitos” both
      groups that want to try and take back lands they lost in a war with the
      United States and Mexico sold to the United States. They can
      go pound sand or FOAD. It is a criminal terrorist organization started
      by the Drug Cartels to open up in roads to bring in their product to
      the United States and further destroy our Nation.

      • 1John_Galt2

        This info has to get out on this Judge. He should recluse himself because of his personal beliefs. How can a person who wants to take a part of America and give it back to his homeland even get to be a Judge? I will look it up and see what I can learn about this La Raza Group.

      • reggie

        The head of HUD’s mother was one of the LaRaza founders. Look up Juio and Joaquin Castro, twin brothers.

    • bobnstuff

      Why has Trump not filled for a change of venue if this judge is so bad? No paperwork just talk.

    • Mable Austin

      HE SHOULD LOSE HIS JOB

  • peter

    I understand the reason the Koch brothers haven’t endorsed Trump is because their real estate ventures includes housing they own or will build for illegals and Trump’s policies goes against this.

    • Wingedgodd3ss

      That figures…jerks. It’s either money or power…

      • pappy450

        BINGO!
        Hit the nail on the head! MONEY/ POWER they will LOSE if TRUMP is elected POTUS…Greed is always a factor in Politics these days. THAT is why “politicians” and their “handlers” are terrified their golden goose WILL be plucked and their dreams of all becoming multi-billionaires will go by the way of the do-do bird.
