Thread: Trump golf courses, emoluments, buying jet fuel not from the US military, Maria Butina, and privatizing airports. Yup, it gets ugly, weird, and Mob-smelling.

Incidentally, St. Louis billionaire Rex Sinquefield - patron of convicted STL County Steve Stenger - is trying to privatize St. Louis' airport.  https://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/whats-deal-airport-privatization-st-louis#stream/0 

I wonder if trafficking people or contraband would be easier under a private airport. 🤔

Oh, and why was Jerry Falwell Jr's Liberty* University selling jet fuel...to the Pentagon? Isn't that weird for a school? 🤔  https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/436252-liberty-university-landed-pentagon-contract-after-inauguration-report
