Sharpton Accuses Trump of Conducting Politics Like His Businesses — ‘Quid Pro Quo’

Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” network host Al Sharpton said he believed special counsel Robert Mueller would find President Donald Trump conducted his presidency like his business, which he called “quid pro quo.”

Sharpton said, “When you do something for something, not access, quid pro quo, that’s how Donald Trump conducted his business. That’s how his children conducted their business. So what epiphany did they have election night that they would all of a sudden change? And when you start seeing the kinds of people, particularly foreign powers that were giving money to the inauguration, what incentive did they have? And in what ways does it correspond with some of the policies or lack of enforcement of policies that we saw?”

He added, “So I would think that we’re headed down the right road. Where it will lead, I do not know. But I know it is the right road to go down. ”
