Today I wrote my second ever petition, asking president-elect Donald Trump to release his tax returns. Please read it, and consider signing it and sharing it widely.

I believe there are two things that Donald Trump can do to regain the trust of the American people. The first would be to sell all his assets and put them in a blind trust that would yield a fair return, while he was taking a hiatus from his business life, to serve the public in the highest office in the land.

The second action, short of the first, would be to release his tax returns, that could allay the public's rational fears that he is deeply beholden and entangled to foreign or domestic financial interests such that he would be exposed to significant corrupting influences.

Maybe so. But he isn't going to do either of those things, because he is deeply beholden to enemies both foreign and domestic.Petition = wasted effort.

Yep.

We're just going to have to let the slow motion disaster unfold in front of us.

I'm afraid it won't be slow motion. He will be taking office with hundreds of sensitive positions empty. As of now, he has not had one appointment affirmed, and he has another six hundred or so that have not even had appointments. Important parts of the government will grind to a standstill.
