So why should a billionaire get away with only paying 750 bucks in taxes? I wish I had that kind of tax rate.
Because there isnt a wealth tax. Does literally everything have to be explained to you?

It’s more evidence that Trump has either been:

A. Falsifying his tax filings.
B. Committing a plethora of crimes related to bank fraud.
C. Both
Where is the evidence of that? You dont know wtf you are talking about.

And stories like this help push us towards that. This is why I think ti’s important. Not just for Trump’s humiliation, but we should be talking about wealth distribution in our country. it’s clear lots of wealthy folks have money that is not theirs.

This doesnt disprove that. And you cant seriously believe that this information would cause a Trump supporter to switch his vote to Joe Biden, a guy who hasnt run anything in his life other than his mouth.😂

Trump could murder Biden on live television and declare his intent to be crowned King of the United States and Trump voters would still vote for him.

They have been screaming for 4 years that Trump is hiding his taxes because he is committing tax evasion, now the NYT claims they have the taxes and the big story is Trump writes off business losses. 😂
The American people do not know the half of it. Follow the money. A lot more is to come out, in particular Donald Trump's dealings with Deutsche Bank and the laundering of Russian oligarch kleptocracy.

There is exactly zero in that story to say any of that, that is only the product of your own delusions.

If they found tax fraud they would have reported that in the story. The only story they got out of his taxes was that he declared losses on properties. OH NOES! :rolleyes:

You folks keep claiming things that there is no evidence of. The NYT "followed the money" and came away with Trump wrote off business losses.

You folks are also the group who were sure for years that Trump was a Russian spy, so you are prone to believe stupid things when the truth doesn't suit you.

The NYT's theft is the subject as it was the first thing mentioned in the OP.

Of course, you support theft because you are the sort of low person who does not respect the property of others.
So, the "real" issue to you is how the Times got the records that Trump doesn't pay taxes, not that Trump doesn't pay taxes. Breathtaking.

Why should we care? You dont know the first thing about tax law, particularly when it comes to real estate so your opinion would be based solely upon ignorance (what else is new)
Oh, look who is trying to distract.

Your cult leader is a sleazy con artist, and you got taken.

I agree with this sentiment. Nothing is moving that needle. This is just pure joy at Trump’s very public humiliation. You can call him out for being a racist, rapist, mass murderer, but nail him as a garbage capitalist who couldn’t make money selling slushies in the desert? Orange is gonna be the new red.
How is he humiliated by leftist idiocy like this. Answer: He isnt. You just dont understand how tax laws work.

How did you come to this conclusion?

We already know that there are significant discrepancies between what he declared in his loan applications and his tax filings. That’s what’s being investigated in New York. That should be no great surprise. There’s no bank on earth that would have loaned Donald hundreds of millions of dollars if they knew what he’s been telling the IRS for 15 years.

This doesn't mean that Trump isn't in the pocket of the Russians too. It just is proof that he sucked so bad as a businessman that he took more loses than earnings. Now, the issue becomes did he exaggerate those loses and minimize the loses illegally, which has a specific term -- tax evasion.

I do suggest that, if by "Trump supporter" you are referring to someone who voted for Trump in 2016. It has already happened all across the country. There are even posters on this very forum who voted for Trump in 2016 and who plan to vote for Biden in 2020.

However, if by "Trump supporter," you are referring to those die hard conservative Republicans who are blindly loyal to Donald Trump against all odds, then I don't believe there is anything at all that could convince them not to vote for Donald Trump. However, they are far too few to get him reelected without those precious Independent votes.

Good luck getting those.
