Donald Trump’s undisclosed tax returns are one of the breakout issues of this year’s presidential election. Last week’s New York Times investigation uncovered that the Republican nominee might have not paid federal taxes for up to 18 years after losing nearly $1 billion in a single year. The revelation came on the heels of the first presidential debate, at which Trump quipped that paying nothing in federal income tax “makes me smart.” He also told his audience that rooting for the 2008 housing collapse was “good business” and that he likes to “take advantage of the laws of the nation” when it comes to running his multiple businesses.
“I’m working for you now—I’m not working for Trump,” Trump explained to supporters in Colorado this Monday. In business, he said, “It’s my job to minimize the overall tax burden” and that he has “legally used the tax laws to my benefit … Honestly, I have brilliantly used those laws.”
Lynn Forrester de Rothschild disagrees. She thinks being able to “beat the system” is not a presidential quality. “He’s a person who’s gamed the system his whole life for his own ends. Now he claims that means he can fix it, but he’s never shown any inclination to fix it for anyone but himself,” the chief executive of the holding company E.L. Rothschild tells Yahoo Finance. “It matters why you go into public office, particularly when you’re the highest official of the greatest country on Earth.”
The same Wilbur L. Ross, still Jacob Rothschild’s right hand man, came out in support of Trump’s nomination in March 2016, also reported by Bloomberg.
Jacob Rothschild’s son, Nat Rothschild, even dated Ivanka Trump.
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.
In a flattering speech, Lieut. Gov. Betsy McCaughey called Mr. Trump "the comeback kid." Charles A. Gargano, who as chairman of the Empire State Development Corporation is himself considered one of the new powers of the state, joked about a Perot-Trump presidential ticket. "He would be the most loved Vice President since Spiro T. Agnew," he said. Mr. Gargano, who heads the state's economic development efforts, added, "Thank you for your tax dollars."
The connection between Baron Edmond de Rothschild, being one of the original principle investors of Resorts International, and Rothschild Inc. allowing Donald Trump to retain “ownership” over the Atlantic City casinos, which saved him from bankruptcy, should not be considered a coincidence.

you think he'll remove the loopholes that have allowed him to keep his wealth. why do you think that?
he owns luxury golf courses and hotels. why do you think he'll hurt those that pay to go there, in effect hurting himself?
