And it was all from tax money, I've no doubt.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

More illegalities and lies from the Trump front.

He'll be broke soon, if he has to reimburse all the victims of his wrongdoings and scams.

Trump faces ongoing legal troubles on multiple fronts. Courts have ordered that two banks must hand over to Congress documents related to the president's finances, and he is fighting an attempt by a New York prosecutor to compel the release of eight years' worth of tax returns, among other battles.

Yes, this one will be interesting. Why won't he release the tax returns or allow his finances to be scrutinized?

What is he hiding?

"But the Dems..." responses will be ignored.

It would be funny to see Trump put 2 thumbs up and saying, "I am not a crook!"

Trump is far worse than Nixon ever was in that department.

That’s chump for him. That’s like ¥500 for the average person.

We don't want to see the tax returns of billionaires who serve their country, we want to see the tax returns of people who make millions after they get elected to public office.

Impossible, that’s like saying, he’ll take up residency in Japan.

No one cares....except the House socialists.

Dems ARE ignored.

This is to be expected with liars and con artists.

His tax returns must be absolutely toxic.

Trump at his core is just a sad, penny-ante grifter who cheats at every opportunity, big and small.

His grifting used to affect just his customers, lenders and people doing business with him. Now he is cheating the entire nation.

Trump had been accused of using foundation funds to settle lawsuits, promote his Trump-branded hotels, and for personal spending, including the purchase of a portrait of himself to display at one of his golf clubs.

What a sick, pitiful excuse of a human being. Stealing from his own charity to buy a portrait of himself...

His depravity has no depths...

That’s chump for him. That’s like ¥500 for the average person.

And the Trumpers here just ignore his moral perversion...what does that say about them?

They did get one word right though - he is definitely a Chump...

Nope. You need to get out of the bubble created by Fox News broadcasting via satellite to Japan.

Trump can actually claim the $2million fine as a charitable donation.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Nope.

Yes, it’s true.

More people googled Peloton then worrying about this settlement. Seems like people are more worried about...important things that affect their lives.

Love it when the Trumpists claim nobody cares.

The man is a crook and a con artist. Ripping off charities - that's something that, what does he call it, human scum do.

We don't want to see the tax returns of billionaires who serve their country,

LOL. "We".

He has never served his country, only himself.

we want to see the tax returns of people who make millions after they get elected to public office.

What's he hiding & why are Trumpists so terrified of the information being out there?

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Yes, it’s true.

No, it's not. Why are you against transparency?

4 ( +5 / -1 )

No, it's not. Why are you against transparency?

Liberals are really the last people to talk about transparency.

The man is a crook and a con artist. Ripping off charities - that's something that, what does he call it, human scum do.

So who else is talking about it? By next Wednesday this will be a passing memory.

He has never served his country, only himself.

The polls, economists and economy as well as his ever growing rallies say otherwise.

If Trump is such a rich dude, why did he have to steal from his charity for VET's?

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Because he didn’t “steal from vets” no matter how many times you say this untruth.

Liberals are really the last people to talk about transparency.

I'm not a liberal, why do you always change the subject and deflect?

So who else is talking about it? By next Wednesday this will be a passing memory.

Not to those he stole from. Kind of wishful thinking, on your part.

The polls, economists and economy as well as his ever growing rallies say otherwise.

More made up stuff.

So, basically, you condone his wrongdoing, right?

Who was meant to benefit from the charity?

*Trump had been accused of using foundation funds to settle lawsuits, promote his Trump-branded hotels, and for personal spending, including the* purchase of a portrait of himself to display at one of his golf clubs.

I'd like to get this on the record - Trump lost a lawsuit and admitted he in fact took money from a charity he established for Vets, the homeless, those out of work, etc., which as a charity, received tax benefits, and used that money in his hotels, for his campaign, and most egregiously to buy a 6 ft portrait of himself for $10K for one of his golf courses...

And which Trumpers here are OK with that? Which ones of you think it was not a big deal?

And if Donnie is such a successful businessman, and the Trump Org is so profitable, why does he have to take money meant for charity? If his golf courses can't afford a $10K portrait, how successful are they?

Any Trumper here willing to say to Donnie; "What you did was wrong"?

They'd do it themselves, if they had the chance. That's why they support Trump, isn't it? They just dream of having the balls to rob their own charity, but Trump actually does it, so they love him for it.

In any large undertaking there will be mistakes and problems. Overall Trumps organization gave millions to charity so that is a very large net positive. I compare it to another large organization, the FBI, that also was found to have made mistakes. They denied a US citizen his 4th amendment rights and spied on a political campaign to benefit the party in power. Mistakes happen right?
