9. He's never going to stop running. He's discovered politics is a better grift than real estate

Look at how much money he embezzles/self-deals from campaign contributions into his company's coffers. It's easier than the international money laundering-fueled real estate gig he was doing before.

You know how some so-called "charities" spend most of their annual revenues on administration costs specifically including fundraising? They just raise money to spend on raising money -- but in the meantime the charity executives have well-paying jobs and a respectable job title.

Trump has figured out that politics is susceptible to the same grift -- and he figured out that the money spent to raise more money can be spent with companies owned and operated by oneself, one's family and one's employees. As long as there are suckers, bigots, and crooks willing to give them campaign contributions, someone from the Trump clan will always be running for office, or running a PAC, from this day forward.
