The Previous Presidents run up the national deficit to 20 trillion, but now is the time to complain about how much money the President spends. lol. Maybe it would quieten the left down if Trump would give Iran another 300 billion dollars. I mean talk about idiocracy.

Stating how much you disliked previous presidents does not change the fact the current one is sucking money out of YOUR wallet.

Show me some proof. Trump is well known for claiming he donated money but not actually doing it.

Anyways what about the millions it costs taxpayers everyday for him to go to his golf course. And how he pockets a lot of cash because he owns it.

Freedom! Yes, and that's...

Another factual error - the 300 billion was Iran's frozen assets, it was never ours.

Source's? Trump said he wasn't going to take a salary while in office....


He was told he has to take it, so now he gives it back...to the government.
Anyway,

I've thought long and hard about this.

Trump needs to be impeached. He has flaunted his patriotism and his noble sacrifice too far.

The final straw is his giving up his salary.

What kind of man does this?

We don't need that kind of action talked about.

We should focus on how he grabs covfefe and says bigly.

Amen.

There are several problems that are not making any sense here.

The first is that the man is donating his salary. While it is noble, and don't get me wrong, it is a nice thought. However, what business man, would donate every penny he earns for any amount of time? Normally they donate a percentage, for tax purposes, but if he is, then where is the money that he is spending? Even as President, there are some expenses that comes right out of his own pocket, and some of those are not cheap.

The second part, and this is where it comes to questions is the paper trail. Normally when a person gives a donation, there is a paper trail of some kind where it starts with the person giving the donation and ends with the charity or organization. And that is very much easily traced. When it comes to the actual donations from the President, there does not seem to be any sort of paper trail, no record of such. Nothing that would indicate such.

So as much as we would like to believe that the man is donating money, I would like to see the paper trail that goes along with such.

So what, that he donates more in a month than I will in my entire life. I want to see his tax returns...dammit!


The way he's doing it is a bit nutty...no it's not, he's giving out cheques, (They're given out at the press room in the White house BTW) so from that point of view it's a choreographed setup.
However, if he just designated all his Presidential pay to those charities from the outset, he would not need to pay any tax on his Presidential earnings which is due.
It's up to him, go figure.

Frozen Assets...you realize that if someone has their assets frozen they are only returned when they repay the debt. So, if that is the case, and we know they did not pay anything back, WHY was it done?

It's all detailed in my book, "Why Jesus Voted For Trump".

You should buy a copy.

Iran's assets were not frozen due to debt... I suggest you read up on it then come on back.

Oh - are you talking about the elephant in the room that's inundated social media this past 24hrs?.

MSM is a river of networks pushing an agenda - social media is an ocean of voices calling them out.

Welcome to 2018 - where everyones BS is now up for scrutiny. If the MSM won't run it, then social media erupts.

LOL
