He actually hires his brother to take care of the business.
Carter's blind trust, which totaled $784,300 in 1978 and $529,300 in 1979, consisted of his incorporated peanut farm and a 63 percent share of his family's peanut warehouse. The farm made him a millionaire in 1978 despite continuing losses from the warehouse business, which lost more than $300,000 in 1977 and $73,000 in 1978 under the management of Billy Carter, the president's brother.

I wouldn't make heads or tails of it.
I'm sure if they came out, someone qualified would decipher.

Chase your tail, his tax returns mean nothing.
Actually, they do. They specify his sources of income. All of them, and thus reveal how he could directly benefit from his influence as President. Directing HUD money toward Trump's holdings, for example. As pointed out by Warren. "Isolating" himself by turning control to his kids (they won't talk about it over dinner, I promise) is meaningless.
To you? Me? Why would they?
The hostile IRS has them and they haven't said anything.

Jimmy Carter gave up his peanut farm yet Trump shouldn't give up anything?
So should he keep all of his debts? He has hundreds of millions of dollars worth of debt all over the world. You think a president with that much debt is a good thing? Now, even if he did go the ethical route and get a blind trust does that exclude him from all of his debt? If so, then if he wants to be president he HAS to do this. You can't be the leader of America with that kind of insanely large debt! Having that much debt alone should have disqualified him.
And that's probably one main reason why he won't release his taxes.
No he didn't where did you get that BS from. Actually he left his brother Billy in charge of the family farm. What did happen though was his brother was a scum bag and stole money from the family business. This made people in the government to think Carter was running a slush fund because of the missing money. Turned out his brother was just pocketing money without reporting it.
