Trump's Manager Is a Master of Post-Soviet Business

Top Trump aid Paul Manafort's former Russian business partner is/was Oleg Deripaska. Mr. Deripaska is a notorious (the Aluminum Wars) Russian oligarch/mafioso who is banned (2000) from entering the US due to his criminal activities/connections. Manafort refuses to answer questions regarding his dealings/connection to Deripaska on the grounds that he may be subpoenaed to testify in a US trial concerning Deripaska and defrauded Cayman Island investors.

Yes. Trump and Manifort are going to rule the aluminum world. Meanwhile China is dumping aluminum in every country that has a port.

That makes one wonder...gee, WHY is it that Trump is saying that if he's president, he may not honor our obligations as part of the NATO treaty, hm?

My honest answer: **** just shows up in Trump's brain and goes straight out of his mouth. He is 90% bull**** and 90% con. Yeah, that totals more than 100% but in Trump's case it works. Trump has a psychological condition called cacablurtus. It is a disability and as such Trump can't help it. Almost every sound uttered by Trump is a cacablurt. Also a characteristic of cacablurtus is that the speaker, in this case Trump, sincerely believes in the veracity of their own cacablurts.

The problem is that millions of people with a condition called cacareceptus are compelled to believe and follow people who have cacablurtus.

You really don't have a clue about the internal oligarchic aluminum wars of the 1990's or Russia's gangster-capitalism do you?

No but it's really a non issue unless that is all you have on him.

Manafort explains much about Trumps cavalier attitude about Putin and Russian aggression.
