MAKE AMERICA GRIFT AGAIN

grift (verb)
transitive: to obtain (money) illicitly (as in a confidence game) intransitive: to acquire money or property illicitly

All Hail the Grifter-in-Chief: Unpresident Donald Trump!

Donald Trump is not "a great businessman." He declared bankruptcy four times, at great expense to many other people.

He is not the "champion of the forgotten man." He is a con artist skilled in gaining the confidence of those whom he plans to take advantage of.

His actions as the nation's "Unpresident" are geared towards one goal only: The enrichment of himself, his family, and the people to whom he owes money or favors.

The examples of Trump's shameless grifting are many and "unpresidented"; read about a few of them here.
