Gypsy, They don't have billionaires in Europe like they do in Russia and America. The problem this creates with capitalism is that it's too much power for individuals to have. It goes way past wealth. It's power. When individuals can buy the government and elections can't be won without a blessing (and their money)it's gone too far. Capitalism and democracy have both failed.
Trump is one of these people. All his life he was accustomed to being above the law. He could lie and steal and get away with it because the army of lawyers would make sure he got his way. He is a legal draft dodger who became the Commander in Chief.
The Magna Carta established the rule of law. Billionaires need to be shown the rule of too much money. It's like a card game, When one person gets all the money, the game is over.

And you can virtually guarantee that most all billionaires didn't get where they are by being morally sound and humane to all those around them - Many have blatantly broken laws- and/or affected the laws (paid lobbyists etc) to climb that capitalista's ladder - Trump is no different.
