He borrowed almost 900M...declared bankruptcy and defaulted on paying that back to those investors and banks.



So let me get this straight. He claimed a LOSS on an enormous amount of money that he never actually LOST? As in, due to his bankruptcy, the banks and investors actually lost.

Did the investors and the banks ALSO write this off? I would think they did.

How can a single loss get claimed in its entirety by multiple people?

If that's legal, it's broken as hell.



I'm going off memory with this and paraphrasing while giving the short version.

The law was changed to where investors could not write off losses as secondary investors to a company if it went south.

Thusly, all the investors pulled their monies leaving Trump holding the bag.

Atlantic City was getting not so casino friendly. Lots of others took a bath too.

He filed CH 11 and took the loss.

Doesn't seem like everyone lost but him.

I would LOVE to see stats on that. I've heard differently.

He could be. How do we know he isn't?

It's been proven over and over again the "tickle down" or "Reaganomics" only benefit the rich. As this code apparently does as well. You guys say that Trump is "anti-establishment" but he sure seems quite in bed with it.


Do you have a job? How do you get paid? Where does that money come from?

I'm just trying to understand this.

When you said they "left Trump holding the bag," define "the bag."

To me, the bag sounds like "stuff he owes other people."

So, when he declared CH11, whoever he owed got stiffed. Which is all fine and well (that's why bankruptcy exists), but to turn around and allow him to declare money he never paid back... that seems insane.

Whether or not you believe in Reaganomics has little to do with Trump. I don't hear Trump pushing Reaganomics. I hear about renegotiating trade deals that are killing us. America first. Simplify the tax system. Reduce corruption. Properly managing our National Debt. Exactly what we need.


Where did you hear this? I hear he has a plan but it's vague to say the least.


As opposed to "Dump tax dollars/debt into infrastructure, Underpants Gnomes, Profit!!"

Not quite sure how it goes. It might be "I won't play a fool's game." Or could be "I won't play a game with fools." It's cloudy.

Yeah, I was hesitant to write it, usually I have something to back it up and obviously there are other details involved but basically that's what happened.

The law changing is what killed most of AC casino's.
Like many people said, how can ya lose money on a casino?!


I'll look around.

Construction workers.

What is the purpose of infrastructure? Why do we have roads and bridges?

Yes. Construction companies and workers who get paid to build infrastructure. I wasn't sure what your point was.

Oops. Now no idea what your point is.

This is not a trick question. You don't understand Trickle Down Economics (aka Basic Economics) and I am trying to give you a real world example.

So:

Do you have a job?
How do you get paid?
Where does that money come from?

What I don't get is the code that allows the rich to be poor businessmen. He loses a billion(in casinos no less). He's credited that billion over 18 years. I'd wager Guiseppie's Pizza doesn't get that perk.


No question. Our tax code needs to be overhauled. This is absolutely ridiculous.

If Trump promised to clean up the tax code (or at least try) by getting rid of these loopholes for the ultra-rich -- and if he enumerated all the loopholes he's taken advantage of over the years and why he thinks they are a scam -- I would at least consider voting for him.



do you think he would do that? overhaul the loopholes that allowed him to live in his literal gilded apartment?

I don't believe he will. I don't even think his supporter believe he will. why do they support him? I just don't get it.

Nope. Where are you coming from?

In this case, by government contracts. Taxes.

Surf contests?

Both.

How do you get paid for your labor? Where does that money come from? Does your boss print it? Does it grow on trees?

Seriously. Not a hard question.
