This also shows the utter ignorance of Donald Trump such as his lack of knowledge of even the Nuclear Triad.

Many other incidences of Trump's corruption

David Cay Johnston began covering Donald Trump in the 1980s when he was working as the Atlantic City reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer. Johnston’s new book, “The Making of Donald Trump,” looks at a side of Trump seldom covered in the press: his ties to the mob, drug traffickers and felons.

Mob ties could be revealed through him releasing his tax return, that's why he so adamantly stated "I will release my tax return when Hillary releases her deleted emails!"

obviously she can't "release" what has already been destroyed, but Trump wanted to take advantage of a public statement to make it look like he's being forthcoming (laughable)

I'm so sick of this election season, can't wait to just have a new Saruman in office lol let's just get it over with already, we're ****ed either way

I read the transcript. As a Trump supporter it was difficult. I do question some of it because guilt is simply implied and other parts are guilt by association...esp his father and grandfather.

The part about his grand nephew though...if true, is sad and sick. At the same time, the child was just born so you wouldn't expect him to be in the will. My youngest grandchildren were not in their ggrandmothers will because it was made out before they were born, all others were.

Hoping someone can shed more light.

catch me up

Did Trump do business with Tony Rezko, oh wait that was Obama

Did Trump run drugs through Mena Arkansas, oh wait that was the Clintons

The last one Felons, 3/4 of politicians are felons that are walking around. Heck, Trump used to hang with Hillary "13 phones" Clinton

I've followed David Johnston for years. He is an investigative journalist and tax and finance expert. He knows. His years investigating Trump go way back.

From the transcript

When he ran casinos, he didn’t know the games, he didn’t know the odds, he didn’t know how to handle customers. All he knew how to do was take money out of the organization, which weakened it, and that’s why his casinos were among the first to fold.

So sue me...

Donald finally called me. He’s had my home number for years. He’s called me at home in the past. And he said to me, "Well, you know, you’ve written a lot of things I like. But if I don’t like what you’re writing, I’m going to sue you." I said, "Well, Donald, you’re a public figure." In America, that means that he would have to prove that I deliberately, knowingly told a lie about him. And he said, "I know I’m a public figure, but I’ll sue you anyway." And it’s one of the reasons the news coverage of him has been so soft. He has threatened to sue everybody.

Johnston knows why Trump doesn't want anyone to see his tax returns

There are special laws in America for full-time real estate people that allow them to live tax-free if they own a lot of property. So, if Donald gave us his tax returns, I could tell you what his property is really worth as opposed to what he tells people it's worth. That’s one reason he’s not going to give it out. I don’t think he’s anywhere near as wealthy as he claims. Not even close.

Trump doesn't know, doesn't care, and just plows ahead, letting the chips fall where they may. He's got his, too bad for you.

Now why wouldn't the media want to cover this!

I thought the entire liberal media was out to destroy Donald for being so uncontrollable and a threat to the elite!

Could it be that Trump has simply been used to divide the masses and is simply controlled opposition?!

Personally I think that this is obviously the case!
