    I saw a few comments on Facebook today from trump supporters saying "but he's not taking a salary!" Ummmm, I'm pretty sure that saving is wiped out in one day by the extra secret service bill for his family. Not to mention the fact that the SS are apparently paying rent to stay in his tower. Conflict of interest anyone?

    Major conflict. It would be interesting to know if h charging the government to use some of the apartments. And regards to his salary he did an interview about it and will be taking $1.00 it's all to do with tax and no actually having to pay it otherwise he would have to put forward his personal tax returns

    Yep. It has nothing to do with him not wanting the money. It's all about the image of how it looks that he's doing it for nothing, and so he can hide his tax returns. Again. And you can bet he'll find a way that this goes all in his favour, not in the American people's.

    Thank god! I also love that the judge that made this decision was appointed by Bush, meaning this isn't a partisan issue.

    Part of my morning internet routine has now become to check Donald Trumps Twitter. He's definitely not a fan of this judge!

    Shares in Twitter must have gone up in value over the past couple of weeks
