Remember the venture capitalism beef with Romney?

That's what this complaint is. In order to be acceptable, any businessman would have to have never made any losing bets in his career, but then they'd pick on him for being greedy although they'll already do that too.

Romney was part of Bayne which was fiendishly successful under his tenure, but they still picked on the bets Bayne couldn't turn around and said it meant he was a failure.

Business is high risk/ high reward by its nature. The odds that you will find any successful businessman who never failed is extremely low. Heck Steve Jobs took Apple from near bankruptcy to success and Abe Lincoln went bankrupt as a general store owner.

Using the law to your advantage is OK. I wonder if that particular tax loophole will be fixed any time soon.



It is not a loophole, jeez.

We are only supposed to be taxed on income for gods sake. Why should you be forced to pay taxes for losing money?

The fact that anyone thinks this is a valid attack means they can't think period.

What kind of idiot loses a billion dollars *of their own money*.

Just another case of elitist billionaires lining the pockets of politicians to rig the system in favor of them.

Trump is part of the rigged system he talks about so much, it's like everything he's against is everything he's been doing his entire life.

What kind of idiot loses SIX BILLION DOLLARS of OUR tax payer money?

At least Trump can account for it.



State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

You mean you never use deductions at all at tax time and always pay the maximum?

She knows full well that he didn't lose it- she's simply pandering. Again. Because your average person doesn't know the difference.

Didn't she steal a few billion on the gooberment dime?

Also, didn't she use the exact same tax loophole?

Great Thread! Shows us how out-of-touch with reality Clinton is. G.M. wrote off $16 BILLION a few years ago. I wrote off $37,000 in expenses and depreciation. It's what businesses do.

Hillary should be asking, "What IDIOT U.S. President would increase the U.S. National debt by more than all prior Presidents combined!!!???"

Trump is right. Hillary is mentally "off" a bit. She can't even frame her accusations logically. It seems those concussions have exacted irreparable damage on the old glue-horse.


The man lost a billion dollars and you compare him to GM? Didn't GM get a bail out? You know, welfare just like Trump, I guess. So maybe they do have some kind of common ground. Looks like the US is letting Trump not pay taxes on his so called billions because he sucks at every thing he does. What a role model... Meanwhile, King Hypocrite Trump has attacked everyone, from the wealthy to the poor, for not paying enough taxes or pay taxes at all.

Trump supporters should be asking, "What IDIOT US Prez would let America default on all debt because the IDIOT wanna be US Prez thinks he can make a better deal?????????????????????????????? What's Trump's big plan for crashing our economy? Not pay our taxes for 2 decades?

Trump is never right, ever. The man is a pathological liar and it's really disheartening to see Trump supporters completely disreguard this. Speaking of illogical accusations, see: Donald J. Trump.

What kind of genius comes back from such a huge loss?

Even the hypocrites at NYT called Trump the Comeback King back in 1995.





Crowning the Comeback King

By BRETT PULLEY
Published: October 25, 1995

Though there are still four years to go in the 90's, business and government leaders in New York honored Donald J. Trump yesterday for pulling off what they called "the comeback of the decade."

Mr. Trump, the developer who came to epitomize opulent wealth during the 80's before tumbling into deep financial trouble, has managed to erase much of his debt and is moving ahead with major projects at a time other developers are idling.

I've never used deductions on my taxes and the run a presidential campaign based on how elitists screw over the little using loopholes that get you out of paying federal taxes.

Every single thing he's supposedly against he's done his entire life, the man is a complete fraud, everything about him is a fraud.

So?

If you lose a million one year, make a 100k next - did you magically get the 900k of losses back? Should you just be screwed because it didn't all happen in the same taxable year?

if the government paid you back the taxes you previously paid equal to the taxable loss as soon as you filed then we wouldn't need to have deferred losses. It is to the governments benefit that they make you defer the losses for up to 20 years and to even out your taxed income.

I swear you sound like you want to be a slave.

Also losing a billion in Atlantic city is an understandable loss, it was due to the legalization of Indian gaming all over, and the super expansion of Vegas. Neither of which could be controlled by trump.

He was far from alone for taking huge losses there, and really it's stupid to blame him for them, the only thing he is guilty of is not being able to see the future.

It is not a LOOPHOLE it is the fundamental guiding rule of the tax code you pay taxes if you can afford to.

Do you make a habit of taking beggars money?

Who does? Either a liar or an idiot. Definitely not a "genius". Either it's not true and simply just a con (see 20 years of no taxes) or it is true and he isn't capable of good management.

Yep. Plus she's obviously trying to bait him into telling which one it is. Let's see if he takes the bait.

Come on, man. You have to look at it deeper than that. Trump's the one constantly claiming he's an expert at business and using his business experience as proof that he fix what's wrong in Washington. During the Presidential debate, he kept pointing out how America needed that kind of thinking in the White House.

So this jab by Hillary is probably meant to point out that his "successful" business mind still lost nearly 1$ billion in a single year. Add this to the multiple bankruptcies his companies have had and it creates a credible doubt of his business mind. And like I mentioned above, it's clearly bait. So I'm hoping he takes that bait and admits he only claimed that massive loss so he could avoid paying taxes (or maybe it's something even more sinister?).
