While most politicians are guilty of some form of rule bending and self-enrichment, President Donald Trump’s years in office were marked by exceptionally ignoble corruption, self-evident self-dealing and overt nepotism.
By all accounts he has been the greatest man to ever hold the office. Said no virtuous man. Ever.
- Favoritism shown to members of one’s family.
- Bestowal of patronage in consideration of relationship, rather than of merit or of legal claim.
- Undue attachment to relations.
Borrowed from French népotisme, from Italian nepotismo, from Latin nepōs (“nephew”).
