Alleged president Donald Trump ordered a military strike Thursday on a Syrian government airbase reportedly in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians earlier in the week, but it looks like he made a tidy profit from the attack. Raytheon manufactures the Tomahawk missiles which were launched and Trump has stock in the company. After the ‘attack’, which failed to hit airbase runways, the shares of Raytheon stock spiked immediately.
This is likely why Trump won’t disclose his tax returns. His conflicts of interest are massive.

The Palmer Report notes that “we’ve now reached the phase where Trump has ordered military action which has given direct financial benefit to a company that he owns stock in.” In fact, the missiles may have been worth as much as $93.8 million and they will now need to be replaced.
There’s no record that Trump sold his Raytheon stock:
Donald Trump owned stock in Raytheon up through at least the start of the presidential election cycle. There is no record that he subsequently sold that stock. The Tomahawks that Trump just burned up will have to be replaced, meaning he just handed a nearly hundred million dollar payday to a company he owns stock in.
The Tomahawk missiles were not even the best weapon for the attack.
To explain why runways weren’t hit, Trump tweeted, “The reason you don’t generally hit runways is that they are easy and inexpensive to quickly fix (fill in and top)!”

As it happens, the Assad regime in Syria had anticipated Trump’s ‘attack’ and moved weapons, equipment, and personnel out of harm’s way before the strike. That’s likely because Trump gave Russia a heads up before the missiles were launched and Putin had to have informed Assad.
It was just hours after the strikes that Syrian warplanes carried out attacks from the same air base Trump ‘attacked’ and the alleged president used a poor choice of weapons. Launching 59 Tomahawks made Trump a handsome profit.
Quick question: How is this not an impeachable offense?
