Grifters, it seems, gotta grift:
Two gifts to Trump family from foreign nations are missing, report says
More than 100 gifts worth nearly $300,000 were not properly reported to the government, a new report finds.
OK, I’ll play along at home. What’s missing?
Federal officials cannot find two gifts received by President Donald Trump and his family from foreign nations, including a life-size painting of Trump from the president of El Salvador and golf clubs from the Japanese prime minister, according to a new report from House Democrats.
OK, that totally is his MO. The petty jerk stole golf clubs and a picture of himself, and yeah, that sounds like him.
The 15-page report, a result of a year-long investigation by the House Oversight Committee into Trump’s failure to disclose gifts from foreign government officials while in office, revealed that the Trump family did not disclose dozens of gifts from countries that are not U.S. allies or have a complicated relationship with Washington.
Which non-ally would have given Comrade Trump gifts worth many rubles that went unreported? Hmmm…
Trump repeatedly told advisers that gifts given to him during the presidency were his and did not belong to the federal government, former chief of staff John F. Kelly and other aides have previously told The Washington Post.
Oooh! Now do the $2B Ameros that the Saudis gave Jar-Jar!
The WaPo article specificies that the data on when Teflon Don and his crime family actually paid for the majority of the “gifts” is not included.
Undoubtedly after he was caught red-handed. News after he left office indicated that hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of presents from foreign sources were missing. I’ll bet any even moderately wealthy thief would jump at the chance to avoid prosecution by just paying for what he stole.
As far as I’m concerned, he can stick the “orb” where the sun don’t shine.

You can’t spell “grift” without “gift”.

I want a complete accounting. Not just the grifted gifts, how about the silverware? Paintings anyone? Probably even furniture knowing him. I don’t think the Whitehouse was ready for live-in thieves like him and Melonimia. We know he stole documents and this other stuff wasn’t even federally protected, as in free to him.
Face it. This asshole would steal the pennies off a dead man’s eyes.
