    For a guy who claims to hate corruption, President Trump sure has a funny way of showing it — including by trying to make it easier to pay bribes.

    He began this process almost immediately after taking office, when he killed a bipartisan anti-corruption rule that would have required energy companies listed on U.S. stock exchanges to disclose how much they pay foreign governments.

    Since then, he’s been hunting for ways to cripple the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

    The most corrupt President in history. Crime fighter extraordinaire.

    One way to enforce the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act is to put Joe and Hunter Biden in prison.

    How is paying foreign countries royalties for their oil "corrupt?"

    Republicans don't consider white collar crime or corruption to be a problem.

    Just naming a bunch of people makes for a pretty stupid post. I could name a bunch of people, it wouldn't change that republicans have spent Trump's Presidency defending white collar crime and corruption.
