Bullshit.

Businessmen always try to reduce their taxes. That's one thing that KEEPS them in business.

Look it's very simple: he posted massive losses for decades to get tax write offs. That means he's either not that good at business and never has been - having squandered not just the hundreds of millions his daddy gave him, but a similar amount from The Apprentice; or that he is a brilliant businessman and he's been bullshitting about his losses to pay almost zero income tax.

And the beauty of it is for once you can have it both ways: it's quite possible that despite losing millions he is still richer than he's told the IRS - but not as rich as he's told us - which means he's still a liar and a tax cheat.

This is a man who stole from his own charity, that's a matter of court record. Whether he broke the law remains to be seen, but the egg on his face right now is very real.

And there's one thing you can't have it both ways on folks: it's either a 'fake story' or it's an 'illegal leak'. Can't be both.

It is funny how every one of their vast array of apologetics for Dirtbag just take them further into actually showing Dirtbag's corruption.

I’m tellin ya...this time next year he’s going to be living in a gold plated dacha in Russia.

I still blame Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity for this entire era. They learned how to sell hate, to stick money in their own bank accounts, and changed the base from a Bob Dole base to a Donald Trump base.



All within 30-40 years.

Bringing up some random congresswoman for financial misdealings when we have 50 pages in the NYT describing Trump’s?

Wonder why you chose HER?

I also mentioned Nutty Nancy, her husband and Visa.

Race-baiting FAIL AGAIN!

For normal real estate, like middle class homes, they use records of surrounding homes. For unique homes And estates, its not so easy.
and he uses his business properties which are not easy to use surrounding property to estimate value.

That is false. Banks are in the business of making money on loans, especially loans of millions of dollars. When the borrower provides potential collateral to back the loan, it is the job of the lender to do an independent appraisal of the collateral to ensure that the value of the collateral is sufficient for the loan.

Do you honestly think that banks just take your word on declared value of loan collateral. Be honest.
Again, you have no clue what you are talking about. They do not send an independent appraiser for personal loans. When you understand how those loans work, we can debate...but you do not.
