Well, yes, to Drain The Swamp in Washington DC.
Drain the swamp seems to be another trump lie....just like his statements that the tax reform would not benefit him......
Here's an article about the state of the swamp:
The ‘swamp’ in action: GOP advances coal lobbyist for EPA job ... st-epa-job
This is not the only article that is out there which bears on the state of the is just a convenient one to grab and put here.....maybe in the future I'll bring other ones.

Greetings Chownah,

It's simply incongruous with actual events, IMO.

But if you wish to attribute such motives, I am not going to stop you, and I'm certainly not going to bother arguing with you about it.

Paul. :)
First of all I am not attributing motives...I am looking for motives...and having looked at trumps life and questioning what could be motivating him what seems to be notable is that he seems to do everything to benefit himself first, his family second, and his rich friends third.....with damn little be done to benefit anyone else. If you or anyone else can bring something which might be interpreted otherwise I would be glad to see it.....but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting. Just one example is the trump run foundation....if I remember it never had a very large amount of money and most if not all of did not come from trump or his family but other people and the money was often spent for thing that benefitted trump himself....a large portrait comes to mind...I would be glad if people brought references to how his foundation functioned....I'd be glad to be shown that I am wrong.
I could add a paragraph on his litigious past and how this is exactly how he is running his administration but perhaps I will present this another time....anyone else feel free to jump right in on this issue. Anyway, the idea is that if someone goes through life using pretty much the same value system for many decades then it seems a bit suspect if it seems that they have drastically changed in a short period of time....and it seems natural that one might look closely to see if the change is real or might look for a motive to make a real change and one might look for a motive to feign change.
Well here is something about trump's litigious past....this article talks about this issue during the electoral process and tries to guess what it might mean for the presidency if he was elected (which he was). :
I know that usa today is not a very good reference but I don't think they are lieing about these facts.....if they are I hope someone brings another reference so that we can be informed.

I hope there will not be another year. Because God Dam Trump is guilty as Hell. And he is a total disgrace to America. ... -interview

Trump had a meeting with our president not long ago.

It went pretty well overall.
