Is there any person who has done more to destroy trust, and weaken our institutions than Trump?

"Dishonesty begets dishonesty, rapidly spreading unethical behavior through a society

Corruption, big or small, impedes the socioeconomic development of nations. It affects economic activities, weakens institutions, interferes with democracy and erodes the public's trust in government officials, politicians and their neighbors. Understanding the underlying psychology of bribery could be crucial to tackling the problem. Troublingly, our studies suggest that mere exposure to corruption is corrupting. Unless preventive measures are taken, dishonesty can spread stealthily and uninvited from person to person like a disease, eroding social norms and ethics—and once a culture of cheating and lying becomes entrenched, it can be difficult to dislodge."

Deterring fraud in any large organization requires diligence, stringent processes and most importantly, a clear intolerance of dishonesty in the executives.

When instead, the executives are raiding the organization's coffers, little frauds arise at every level and grow larger with time.

Whut we know about the level of corruption in our federal government under Trump is very disturbing. I'm convinced we'll be prosecuting embezzlers, etc., well into the next decade.

Did Trump get a prosecuter fired by withholding a Billion so HIS Son could get $50,000 a month on a board? In Ukraine?
