trump signing statement : what oversight?

https://news.yahoo.com/trump-objects-oversight-provisions-coronavirus-011717145.html

" President Donald Trump used a relatively rare signing statement Friday to object to portions of the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus law, potentially opening a new front with Democrats on the oversight of how that money is spent.

Trump said he would ignore portions of the law demanded by some Democrats to give Congress additional visibility into the stimulus spending, arguing that those requirements would infringe on the separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution. "

in case you missed it, we just gave this azzwhole $2T (or maybe $6T) that he intends to use to reward his friends and punish the people that his paranoid delusions consider to be his "enemies."

1. Rep. Katie Porter

She is asking for assignment to the oversight committee. She is a tiger.

4. Oversight was a condition for Democratic support for the bill

But Trump didn't announce his signing statement for two hours after signing. This is fucking unacceptable. The man is a criminal.

7. No oversight needed when you're planning your escape.

My gut tells me Trump will not be in the country, let alone on the ballot in November. This is why he's attacking swing state Governors along with New York. He has no need for them. Also, he knows it's a matter of time before his base is severely impacted by Coronavirus. They will turn against him when their loved ones start dying. Again he does not care because he does not need them anymore. Have you noticed that he is no longer strongly attacking Biden?

This is what I believe will happen: Trump will find a way to filter a billion or few from the relief package into his coffers. He's a coward who hates being president and fears the wrath of his base when CV cases explode. He sees the relief money as his golden parachute and will flee along with family members.

Lastly, I believe the tweet about invoking P was a coded message to someone. It was not about the Defense Production Act.
