According to news reports, Donald Trump will liquidate the Donald Trump foundation ahead of his January 20 inauguration.

One wonders what he thought he was gaining from keeping this issue alive for his opponents, but Trump’s gonna Trump.

If, as is reported, this “charitable” foundation is wound down it would be an encouraging sign that Trump has finally come to grips with the fact that as president he no longer has a zone of privacy or the ability to act without a lot of people who hate him screaming about whatever it is that he’s doing. Given Trump’s lack of self discipline and his behemoth appetites, this is a good thing and as much as he may chafe under the yoke of having to abide by conflict of interest laws, those laws… and his strict compliance… will be the only thing standing between him and eventual impeachment.
