Why does “the swamp” hate Donald Trump so much?

Q: Who is more dangerous that a President that doesn’t owe anybody anything (except average American people)?

A: No One.

Why is “the swamp” so hell-bent on the destruction of President Donald Trump? Well, I’m going to tell you. But first, let’s get some definitions and facts straight.

Q: Who is “the swamp?”

A: Simply put, “the swamp” includes anyone who exists to perpetuate government control, and their own place in “the swamp,” even at the expense of American and/or the American People.

Taking a closer look, “the swamp” is made-up of establishment politicians (those who have made a life-long job out of being a congressperson or senator), people entrenched in various government bureaucracies (“the deep state’), those running our intelligence agencies, the mainstream media, many Union bosses and higher ups, most lobbyists, special interest groups, many in the Educational system, and rich liberals who support and fund all of the above.

Q: Why is a President who doesn’t owe anyone anything (except average American people) so dangerous?

A: Because “the swamp” (see definition above) has no control over him or her. And control, which equates to money, is what it is ALL about to “the swamp.”

Q: Why do I keep saying that President Trump doesn’t owe anybody anything (except average American people)? His campaign contributions must be somewhat comparable to Hillary Clinton’s, aren’t they?

A: No, they’re not comparable at all. But don’t take my word for it. Let’s take a look.

Q: How much of their own money did the candidates spend on their campaigns?

A: Donald Trump a little over $66 million, Hillary about $1.5 million.

Q: Ok, but what about campaign contributions?

A: Here are the “top contributors” (over $2.5 million) to each of the campaigns:

First let’s look at the people Hillary Clinton owes:

(Note: Some of this money went to Political Action Committees which Hillary did not control.)
