    '... more than a dozen Trump advisers, Cabinet members and major donors used  complex tax-avoidance structures. The offshore industry makes “the poor poorer” and is “deepening wealth inequality,”

    The records show that as of 2007,Queen Elizabeth II private estate invested in a Cayman Islands fund that in turn invested in a private equity company that controlled BrightHouse, a U.K. rent-to-own firm criticized by consumer watchdogs and members of Parliament for selling household goods to cash-strapped Britons on payment plans with interest rates as high as 99.9 percent.

    In 2011, the investment fund run by tech mogul Yuri Milner received $191 million from one of the Russian government firms, VTB Bank, and quietly invested that money in Twitter.'
    Since op is under Conspiracy then the Ruskie investment in Twitter is why Twitter doesn't end Trump's account even though he routinely breaks TOS. Twitter says it's because it's 'newsworthy', perhaps it's because Russia want Trump to keep tweeting since he does it unbound by any rules that divide the country? His Twitter has additionally become a place where random and seemingly improvised rants double as actual policy statements.

    "Manjoo pointed out that booting the president would require the company to wade dangerously deep into political-censorship waters and set a precedent that could, in other contexts, be weaponized against activists, dissidents, and the like." -

    As explained in the Twitter Rules,

        Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.

    Examples of what we do not tolerate includes, but is not limited to behavior that harasses individuals or groups of people with:

        violent threats;
        wishes for the physical harm, death, or disease of individuals or groups;
        references to mass murder, violent events, or specific means of violence in which/with which such groups have been the primary targets or victims;
        behavior that incites fear about a protected group;
        repeated and/or or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone.

      Uh oh.  Judging from a recent tirade about college exams, professors cannot tweet times and requirements for their tests.  And of course tweets about enforcing immigration laws, reducing or eliminating welfare goodies, cracking down on illegal drugs, etc. will all raise fears in groups of people.  Even tweets about ObamaCare changes will be forbidden - any opinion except "Everyone should have free health care" is out of line.

        Operator Error: you are on the wrong forum. Your answer has nothing to do with the OP. But thanks for playing.

    One , enough with this cultural war against the rich . The entire US tax system  is nothing but a very complicated write off system to avoid any taxation .
    Two ,  every house hold in America uses some form of 'writing off 'to keep $ in house .
    Three , NONE of these write offs are illegal ,  only the illegal use of them is.
    Four , offshore money and banking is an old ,old way of avoiding taxes .

    Who do so many bitter  people hate the rich ? Many of the wealthy are the very reason for all human  existence . Did daddy and mommy have jobs when you were born ?

        What about the Family of seven who don't make more than fifty thousand a year using the  tax break called  Earned Income Credit tax break ,Thus paying the family in refunds thousands of dollars  back to them when they paid in way ,way  way less ?

        Example ; Joe and Marie paid in $ 3,100 federal taxes and received back $7,400. just because they have 5 kids ?

        Which is worse offshore accounts or tax incentives to large families ?

      What are you saying?
      I don't get it.
      If it is a pyramid economics, then aren't those at the top the smallest percentage?
      How are they indisposable?
      It the majority of the poor are 'disposable'
      How do you justify the .01% aren't?
      And if you equate  worth with money than you are just an a-s-s-h-o-l-e!

    Nice name calling ptosis, looking to get banned ?

    Take Donald J.Trump for instance . Dozens of companies ?   Thousands of employees , hundreds and maybe thousands of sub-contractors ,    Daddy works for one company and maybe mommy is a sub-   , they have several brats while employed  sometimes they name them names like Junior  .  Are you starting to get the picture there Robin ?

    Yes it's a pyramid of economics ,    but you still haven't figured that  it out yet have you ? "Smallest percentage ?" Yes , but the richest percentage you know , the guy who takes the biggest chances , creates the most jobs ,builds the biggest enterprises  and  builds cities  within cities  by the way created any jobs lately?
    No , rich people are useless aren't they .

    Keep on trolling !

        ptosis , If I was that kind , I would simply flag you and spoil your net  fun for a couple of months . I  admit that I  love to debate politics , but not elementary politics .
        Try leaving the photo's out of your debate ,........Ahhh don't do that , I guess there'd be nothing left in your responses. Kinda   too bad the moderators aren't watching .
