Exclusive: Trump says he thought being president would be easier than his old life
He misses driving, feels as if he is in a cocoon, and is surprised how hard his new job is.

“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”

President Trump is in a peculiar position: He runs the country, advised by his daughter and son-in-law — while also profiting from his own worldwide Trump Organization, run by his sons.

This arrangement has spurred a number of ethics and conflicts-of-interest concerns, numerous lawsuits and a consistent stream of headlines. Though President Trump has stepped down from managing his 500+ businesses and put them in a trust, he continues to own them. The top government ethics official has decried Trump’s arrangement as insufficient.

Meanwhile, the specifics of Trump’s financial ties — including his debts and actual sources of wealth — remain unclear. As the president often uses his own for-profit properties to host foreign dignitaries, and his Trump Organization continues to operate overseas and do business with foreigners, an archaic word emoluments has entered the daily lexicon of ethics watchdogs. It refers to an obscure but newly relevant constitutional clause.

Check out our video for a brief walk-through of what all this means, how it happened and why it matters.

Trump: The President Who Is Still A Businessman

chim chim you should confess... if you don't do it now you'll live the rest of your life regretting it and wondering what would've happen if you had. never hesitate to tell someone you love them baby ✨💕

Jimin: I don’t think it’s the right time to confess yet…

Now, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature. If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.

Congressman James Garfield of Ohio, remarks on the 100th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1876. 

Garfield’s comments can and should be applied to the White House, as well, and have never been more fitting. When you’re seeking the source to blame for the sorry state of our political culture, our broken system of government, and the “public servants” who make the decisions that impact our lives, remember that it is our fellow Americans who elected these people to represent us. Elections have consequences.  

Charlotte/21/Brighton I like eating junk food and wearing baggy clothing whilst sheltering myself away from the world and getting stuck into series, films and documentaries, I love going on fun adventures and finding places with pretty scenery. I’m also a lil bit weird and obsessed with conspiracy theories and outer space (hence the alien spaceship phone case) http://gjakut.tumblr.com

I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned this but I think we might have missed a big connection between Isak and Yousef. 

Last season the name Isak and the numbers 21:21 were significant. Julie chose the name Isak for a reason. The birth of Issac is in the book of Genesis 21. The scene at 21:21 when Even kisses Isak in the pool is supposed to be representative of that. In this context, Julie had our focus on the bible and Christianity. It was fascinating to see a story about homosexuality put in the context of religion. Something many might say are two contrasting subjects put together to form a story. But it served as a connection to Isak & his mother.

Lets look at the name Yousef. (Yusuf in english is Joseph). Both Yousef and Isak (I’ll use the skam written names for better understanding) are represented in Islam as well as prophets and family. Isak is the father of (Jacob) who is the father of Yousef. Aka Isak is Yousef’s grandfather. 

Now lets look at the Quran verse which corresponds to the clip Yousef.

 Yousef (12:06) - Let me mention as well that Surah (chapter) 12 of the Quran is Yousef. 

And thus will your Lord choose you and teach you the interpretation of narratives and complete His favor upon you and upon the family of Jacob, as He completed it upon your fathers before, Abraham and Isaac. Indeed, your Lord is Knowing and Wise.

The verse which corresponds to today’s clip is 

Jeg Dømmer Ingen (19:42)

When he said to his father: “O my father! Why do you worship that which neither hears nor sees, nor can in anything avail you?

I’m not going to put my interpretations of these verses on here, I feel it is best for someone who is Muslim to do this. @evenandsana  and any other Muslims what do you think of this connection? I would really love to hear your thoughts.

I will only that add that now after learning Yousef is not Muslim, contrary to what Sana thought, we once again have two contrasting subjects kind of telling us this seasons story. A non-believer of Allah is (possibly) being connected to the Quran, similar to Isak, a believer in parallel universes and a homosexual, who was connected to the Bible. I think its still too early to tell completely understands Yousef’s connection but I don’t think Julie came up with the name Yousef randomly. 

Also Isak and Yousef were both born on the 21st, while Even was born on the 12th (Maybe Surah Yousef connection?). Yousef was born on September 21st which is also the start of the Islamic New Year for 2017 (my best friend who is Muslim pointed this out to me). His birthday might be a coincidence but you know Julie, so I thought I would put this symbolism as well incase someone finds the significance that might hold. 

Do we think the Yousef/Isak connection plays a role in Sana’s story and/or Even’s connection to all of this?

*disclaimer I’m just putting this information out there for discussion. I’m not saying this connection is a definite thing, just a possibility* 

My extra theory is under here

“That’s enough.”

And Molly Hooper- teeny, tiny, less than-a-stone-wet Molly Hooper- slides in between Detective Inspector Jason Braddock and her boyfriend. Pushes herself into the older man’s space, forcing him to back up.

Glowering, defiant, she crosses her arms and glares up at him, daring him to repeat what he just said. Daring him to call the man she loves- the man who just solved his crime for him- a freak once more.

Her expression promises unpleasant repercussions if he does.
