David Cay Johnston has 21 questions he'd like to ask Donald Trump, questions that the mainstream media is too afraid to ask him.

I'll post a few:



2. New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman successfully sued you, alleging your Trump University was an “illegal educational institution” that charged up to $35,000 for “Trump Elite” mentorships promising personal advice from you, but you never showed up and your “special” list of lenders was photocopied from Scotsman Guide, a magazine found at any bookstore.

Why did you not show up?




7. Trump Tower was built by S&A Concrete, whose owners were “Fat” Tony Salerno, head of the Genovese crime family, and Paul “Big Paul” Castellano, head of the Gambinos, another well-known crime family.

If you did not know of their ownership, what does that tell voters about your management skills?





17. Your first major deal was converting the decrepit Commodore Hotel next to Grand Central Station into a Grand Hyatt. Mayor Abe Beame, a close ally of your father Fred, gave you the first-ever property tax abatement on a New York City hotel, worth at least $400 million over 40 years.

Since you boast that you are a self-made billionaire, how do you rationalize soliciting and accepting $400 million of welfare from the taxpayers?




20. Public records (cited in my book Temples of Chance) show that as your career took off, you legally reported a negative income and paid no income taxes as summarized below:

1975
Income: $76,210
Tax Paid: $18,714

1976
Income: $24,594
Tax Paid: $10,832

1977
Income: $118,530
Tax Paid: $42,386

1978
Income: ($406,379)
Tax Paid: $0

1979
Income: ($3,443,560)
Tax Paid: $0

Will you release your tax returns? And if not, why not?



You can read the full list here

Some pretty damning stuff on that list..so the mainstream media continues to slobber all over this chump and keep tossing him softball questions I wonder why that is? Do they no take him seriously? They are doing a big disservice to Trump supporters who think he's the perfect businessman that will "Make America Great Again™ ".

How will he accomplish all of his promises? Funny how Conservatives and the GOP berate Democratic voters for supposedly falling for Obama's false promises, but yet here we are in election season and the top GOP candidate's platform is based on nothing but promises and hope.

As we go deeper into election season I expect Trump's campaign to fold like a wet cardboard box once the media gets serious and start asking him some real questions. They could just use the list above and he would disappear.

This just reinforces my opinion that Trump supporters know nothing about this fraud, and how he has taken over $400 million in welfare directly from the tax payers, has used mob owned construction companies to build his hotels, how he has ripped off thousands of people and he has paid $0 taxes as his wealth grew.

You think he won't rip America off? He has made his entire wealth by ripping people off.

Good find.

I have to agree and say that Trump is the GOP's version of Obama. "Hope and Change"

He's playing off of the propaganda that they have been fed, including using the "legacy" of Reagan and a slightly different version of his campaign slogan.

It's sad really.

He's using some of Nixon's platform as well, he has begun to use the term "Silent Majority" again....The Southern Strategy is working for him so far...but will that win him the nomination? I don't think so.

As Trump continuously requested Obama to produce his Birth Certificate, how about he shows everyone his Tax Returns?

Why are the media scared to ask him these questions anyway?

Name a single candidate is either party who isn't. It's like a requirement. The list of who isn't would be much shorter. But I'm sure whoever someone is supporting is on the short list, the others are the problem.

I posted this because Trump fans love to harp on about how Trump isn't a career politician therefore he isn't corrupt, but don't realize that they are really supporting a career scam artist and welfare king.

If you don't like trump personally understood. If you don't want republicans taking the Whitehouse then concentrate on Bush. In the end pick your poison..Clinton or Bush, only two corrupted or connected to pull it off. Trump is a great story at the moment, allows Bush to screw up while remaining under the radar, when time is right trump will be completely sunk and Bush will emerge as the representative.

I don't care enough to look into it , promise you Bernie is not not on the short list either. I don't care because he and trump are media buffers for Clinton and Bush at the moment. Time is right they will both be sunk. The Bush and Clinton will emerge, the lesser of two evil debates start and business as usual.

Did it ever occur to you that people know Trump's nose isn't clean? And perhaps people know that Bush/Clinton/Sanders/(insert rest of the candidates here) are also dirtbags?

I mean this with respect...and no diss against you personally: Anyone who thinks this election is about finding a white knight with a spotless record is an idiot. Anyone who thinks that this election is about finding out who has the least dirt is an idiot.

This election is about doing something different than what we've done before - whether it's Sanders and socialist ideas, Trump and his business savvy and bluntness, Biden and his awkwardness, creepiness, and (again) big mouth, or even Rand Paul and his...pipe dreams.

Why is it always the same families. How many people live in the U.S, 300,000,000+?

Yet over the last 30 years the Bush's have dominated the GOP ticket and the Clinton's the Democrats ticket.

Do you seriously have no other options, or are they just taking the piss out of you all?

Michelle Obama will be standing in 2024 the way things are going.

Quite honestly because the way it works, ie favors in the form of laws to those who have the money, power, influence, and connections needed to get you to the point of being presented to even compete for the final prize the answer is no, there are not better. Clinton's and bushes are extremely close and have spent decades building what they need in this favor system.

There are better candidates but what makes them better is the very thing that would keep them from getting to the point of selection for final two to even compete for the final prize in the first place.

Was it socialism that took away our privacy and individual liberty since 9/11? Was it socialism that gave us the Patriot Act?

As a socialist, I believe we need more socialism....a mixture of both socialism and capitalism with an emphasis on individual rights.

That day will come.
