Trump: The Con Man in the White House

Updated on May 8, 2019

There is a real con man in the White House, we know who it is. He tries to prevent Mueller from testifying, he instructs his AG Barr, not to cooperate with Congress, an equal branch of government with oversight. Congress now finds Barr in contempt of their subpoena and now the Court will decide. But all this obstruction, and that is what is, is to delay and delay what any con man is worried about- the truth. Trump vowed on his grave that his current tax returns will never be see scrutiny.

The New York Times obtained Trump's tax returns from 1985-94. The glaring in your face evidence from these returns show:

  • Trump LOST $1.7 billion dollars in various real estate and casino enterprises!
  • Trump. our president, never paid ANY taxes for eight of those ten years!
  • Because of the tax code which favors the rich, did not pay taxes because of his loss of $1.7 billion (how ironic is that!). So, Trump legally did not pay due to his losses and poor business deals and ethics.
  • Despite Trump's claims of being the best human businessman ever, the Art of the Deal author who himself told readers that he con's others with hyperbole, Trump is the worst ever businessman during that time.
  • Trump continues to con America with the same tactics that got his finances into a $1.7 billion loss. The con was on Americans who voted for this con man and it continues daily.

In 1994, during an ABC interview, Trump claimed that he was worth $5 billion in 1989. The IRS tax transcripts show quite the opposite, in fact, he had already lost hundreds of millions of dollars. We know that Trump never tells the truth today, but this shows it is part of DNA even back then. Trump claimed in the same interview that everything he touched turned to gold. That was 1994, he said the same bullshit in 2016 and even today in 2019. He firmly believes if you keep repeating lies, the dumb public will start to believe it. Trump called the leaking of IRS transcripts on his tax returns a "Hit job" and that transcripts are inaccurate. Hmm, just like Trump himself.

Trump, our president, lost billions and it makes one suspicious why banks, such as Deutsche Bank, continued to support his bad business deals. We will see soon when the bank provides the banking records that Congress has subpoenaed. Let's not forget that Trump lost a case in a District Court regarding tax fraud and paid a hefty fine.

I know, for those devout followers of this con man will simply ignore the evidence and dismiss it because the economy is booming overall, even though, they might not feel it much. They will attack those who disparage Trump even if the evidence supports the facts and accusations. They are Trump zombies. Luckily, they compose of less than 45% of Americans and as truth continues to be peeled away like an onion, the truth will always prevail at some point in time. Trump just wants to delay this horrid reality as long as he can. Once the light goes on in the Trump zombies, they will turn on him.

For now, we have a real con man in the White House.

      What is the relevance? How does that change what he is accomplishing as president. The only reason that it is important is for anti Trumpers to try and say something bad about president Trump.

      The rich, and I mean the bulk of the rich do the same thing as Trump does, but it is all legal because they use the Internal Revenue Code. If you have problem with that, then take it up with congress that created all those loopholes. Do you think that only rich republicans use the code? Of course not, it is available to any rich person.

      In 1986 Reagan and the congress took away most of tax deductions for the middle class, and they never came back. Also, president Obama as part of Obamacare implemented an increase in the threshold for medical deductions. When the Affordable Obamacare was supposed to lower medical coverage and costs, they raised the threshold from 7.5% to 10%. If Obama wanted to help the people with their medical, they would have lowered the medical threshold to 2% where the threshold for the few deductions the middle class has left.

      You complain about the rich using the Internal Revenue Code, but you don't complain that none of the presidents or congresses have given the middle class more deductions and credits. Or at least give back what they took away from us in the 1986 Tax Reform Act?

      LOL, Madan, we agree on the first part! second part TBD! Trump is now suing Deutcsh Bank and Capitol One in an attempt to prevent their banks records on his deals from being released to a subpeona from Congress. Any rational person would conclude that Trump is concerned about things being discovered, whether legal or not, Trump is hiding things that might finally persuade devout followers and Republicans to turn on him. This is a constant pattern Trump tries to prevent oversight of an equal branch of government. Objective people can see this as obstruction, which it all is, they know it but are in denial about it because they either like this man for what he is or because their economic situation has improved. Yet, the fact remains he is hiding something like his recently released tax returns and what they show. How can so many Americans be foolishly stupid?

      around 91 or so, Larry king had Trump on his show where Trump claimed he was worth millions and successful, facts now show from 91-95, Trump lost billions in bad RE deals and casinos. Trump dismisses all this by saying it is normal for tycoons to do this. Now his son, Trump Jr., was subpoenaed by Republicans for lying about Russia testimony. Daddy must be furious !

      How did he rise? Who would loan money to a man who’s terrible with money?

      Know who?

      His kids said they don’t need American money, they get plenty from Russia.

      Do you think it comes without a cost?

      You can find out if you want. But you don’t.

      It’s ok, the rest of us know. Waiting for you to catch up.

      Click bait description if there ever was one.

      "The New York Times obtained Trump's tax returns from 1985-94. The glaring in your face evidence from these returns show:

      Trump LOST $1.7 billion dollars in various real estate and casino enterprises!"

      I watched a Documentary on Trump TWO YEARS AGO that exposed all that on Netflix. Yes, Trump nearly lost everything.

      And like a Phoenix he rose from the ashes.
