When the President-Elect Changed his Mind

In American politics, the only constant these days is change. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, since that’s what most people have voted for – one can’t be sure this was what they had in mind, though, but this is the situation we have to work with. Change is constant and has been a constant in our lives even before comedian John Oliver’s favorite topic occupied the recently vacated property at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Yet the inhabitant of the property has been seen to change – especially his mind – quite frequently in the last few months, not to mention in the years prior to his ascension to the pinnacle of political power.

In a previous attempt to make his bank account great again, Donald Trump has shown some openness toward online gambling in the past. His goal might have been to make America a bit more similar to Europe, the cradle of the Western civilization, which in its decadence allows its people to play all the Euro Palace games they want, whenever they want it. While his efforts didn’t include bringing Euro Palace online slots into the land of the free, one of his companies – Trump Entertainment – was indeed involved with something called “Poker Ventures LLC”, a company incorporated in Nevada and Delaware a few years ago. Even though the legislation that finally got pushed through in these states, as well as New Jersey, didn’t open the door for Euro Palace (which, if it would’ve been called US Palace, could have stood a better chance), it did mean a bit of promise for US casino players to be able to play their favorite games online, without having to spend on gas, hotels, dinners at celebrity chefs’ restaurants, and indecent proposals by bored billionaires trying to get some action.

Donald Trump has been said to believe everything he said when he said it. There’s always the possibility of him not having enough information – or choosing the wrong sources – when he claimed one thing or another, though. Especially when it comes to climate change, the phenomenon that he claimed to be a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese to affect international trade. Later he decided that there must be some connectivity between climate change and humans, “some, something”… who knows how much.

Trump has also claimed that he would be “draining the swamp”, a claim most of us thought was referring to cleaning the administration of all the lobbyists trying to incline the decisions it makes to their favor. After he filled his team with some well-known leeches lobbyists, our specialists believe that Trump will instead try to make America a bit greater by adding some previously unusable swamplands to its usable surface.
