Trump isn't even a real billionaire. He pissed away his money ages ago, and with it, whatever goodwill he might have had with the Rich People's Club that keeps rich people immune from consequences.

And yet he's still immune to any consequences.Billionaires only get in trouble if they steal from other billionaires.
