Assets

Today's New York Times article by Dave Philipps regarding the U.S. Army rejecting immigrant recruits who applied to military for fast track to citizenship (the Mavni program): “…one recruit from Turkey was labeled a major risk because his family was wealthy, with $700,000 in assets overseas, while another was seen as a risk because he had no assets, and therefore ‘a foreign entity could exploit, induce, manipulate or coerce him if he becomes too financially impaired.' ’'

This of course does not apply to the President of the United States, or his minions such as Manafort, who a certain foreign entity did indeed "exploit, induce, manipulate, coerce" when he became "financially impaired" and could not afford all four (more?) of his houses and his $1, 500 shirts.
