Nonpartisan Ethics Watchdog Delivers Brutal First Year Assessment of the Trump Administration and We Have to Agree
In a report published Tuesday, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a nonprofit government watchdog group, cited Donald Trump for leading the “most unethical presidency” in modern times and possibly in the nation’s history.
CREW dubbed the Trump administration as “The Most Unethical Presidency: Year One.” His utter disregard for standard ethics practices led to legal challenges and scandals tainting the office according to their report.
Yesterday, reporter Amy Westervelt noticed an April 4 State Department blog post promoting Mar-a-Lago, the country club owned by President Donald Trump. The ensuing uproar forced the State Department to remove the post, which was on the department's ShareAmerica website and was shared on websites and Facebook pages for multiple US embassies.
Westervelt was blunt in her criticism.
