In the last year Trump's net worth has declined $600 million dollars. He's got to be one of the only people to go to Washington and lose money. Plus he's been donating his salary. This man is truly a patriot.

It's too bad the left is all in on destroying him and propping up politicians who go there to steal tax payer dollars. But at least this destroys the "enriching himself" narrative. He didn't go to washington to get rich. He went to fix America.

Presidency is something money can't buy. He's in history books for eternity. 600 million is a tiny price for him.

So he loses 600 billion and gets constantly berated by the press and the Left. Tell me again why anyone would want to be President? Maybe the reason we ended up with Trump and Clinton is because they were the only two stupid enough to want the thankless job.

In the very same article you linked to it explains why he's losing money.




“A tough real estate market, a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign all contributed to the declining fortune of the 45th president,” Forbes reported. “The biggest hit was to Trump’s real estate portfolio, which is weighted heavily toward New York City,” it added. “Values of several Manhattan properties, particularly those on or near Fifth Avenue, have dropped, shaving nearly $400 million off his fortune.”


Nothing about that is because he's a patriot at all. You should try reading past the Title and you wouldn't make these kinds of incorrect statements and be proven wrong. Just an FYI.

I saw that too and the properties will probably regain value in time. However, 600 million is still a large drop and he still gives his salary away. That's integrity right there and I admire it.

His 2 golf courses in Scotland are losing $200 million per year!

Trump’s top example of foreign experience: A Scottish golf course losing millions

Good! I'm glad! He really screwed his neighbors over!

So NY city real estate sales is up 31% from last year, so how did the man lose 400 million? Maybe it is because he removed himself from his companies and they have now taken a hit because of that to the tune of 400 million...

Also, what about the other 200 million..oh its not 600 million so no big deal, right?

Everything he does is spun in a bad way, just like your post... and outside of his crazy tweets there really isn't much you can say he has failed at or has done poorly so far.

Don't worry, the salary he gives away is made up by the nearly $4 million (a pop) trips he takes to his own resort on the taxpayers dime. He's cost taxpayers at least $40 million on his (paid) vacations.

Hate Hate Hate Hate .... I see we have all the usual players here. A few are missing but I am sure they will pop in soon to call Trump a turd or say he is such a crummy businessman he is losing money. Right?

If ANY of you on this site had 600 million you would need a week in the hospital to figure it all out. 600 million. That is personal also not his 'company' per se. I am sure he is taking a hit. In fact, he might wind up being the only president to ever come out of office have less than he went in with. But.....I think almost 9 months in the novlety of calling him a cheeto is almost over for normal folks. The ones who should be pissed at Congress and not the POTUS.

Someone's net worth does not make them a good person, in fact the opposite is usually true. The rich and famous are by and large crappy people, especially ones who are in positions of power.

If you believe that maybe you can answer a question for me. Why did he hire so many crooks and scoundrels to work in cabinets, WH, campaign manager, etc.

Does he just have horrendous hiring skills, or what?

Never said it did. I voted for him based on his platform. I liked it. You would be crazy not to.

I know plenty of rich aholes...

What platform exactly? And what about his platform has he accomplished so far?

If he promised to say divisive things on Twitter constantly and to continuously stir the pot then he's kept his promises beautifully. Too bad those things accomplish nothing at all except to stroke his ego.

So what promises has he kept and what legislation has he passed that has benefited everyone in a positive way?

Unemployment down to turn of the millennium level. DOW at record high. A white person back in the white house. For Trump, it's mission accomplished.

So what legislation did he pass that made that happen? Are we ignoring the fact that the unemployment rate and economy was on the upswing before he took office or even started his campaign?

What has Trump done legislatively to help the economy? Name just one thing.
