Letter: Trump may indirectly benefit from hotels, but provides value

Editor,​

After reading the letter to the editor by Mr. Boehm, I trust that he will apply the same outrage to the incoming administration.

By some accounts, Mr. Biden has spent the last 47 years enriching his family. While President Trump may indirectly benefit from his hotels, he has no direct control over the operations. At the very least, his accommodations provide value for service.

Can that be said of Mr. Biden?

If Trump were as greedy as inferred, wouldn’t he be taking his salary as president rather than giving it back to the government that employs him. He falls into the same category of presidents as Washington, Hoover and Kennedy.

Mr. Biden more closely mimics the Clintons. Personally I’ll be sorry to see the change.
