America is about to get a tantalizing look into Trump's fortune:
The expected release of the President's latest financial disclosure forms Thursday will trigger an annual controversy about his wealth


What annual controversy? The typical tax claims stuff


So anyway, noticed that CNBC similarly is claiming he dropped 92 spots on the Forbes richest list:



He's the president now moreso than 'The Real Estate Tycoon' o don't see how his net worth has any much to do with his value... to America!

His net worth is a window into his value to America..


“Is he as rich as he claims? Or is he a lying fraud??”


“Does he pay his taxes? Or does he cheat as much as humanly possible?”


“Is he laundering money for foreign governments or criminals?”


If you want to know how legitimate someone is you follow the money.

nitpicking gets one the fame for 15 minutes
it doesn't matter how rich a person is, is that person helping the fellowman of its country
seems this wonderful company of CNBC should take their ad revenue and build housing for the homeless instead of telling Americans about the finance of the USA President.
Don't you all agree?

How does running on “feels” change the fact that if you want to know what someone is up to, you follow the money...

I didn’t know feelings had anything to do with math?!?!

Follow the money...

If you want to know who committed what crime, or anything else you follow the money...


This is literally low hanging fruit lol..


When is it unheard of to question any celebrities finances especially those who we allow to make laws and such..


Which is why every other president in 80 years (if not longer) has released their tax returns .. it is an easy way to say “see look I’m legit..”

I think Trump will be the first President who comes out behind financially in the history of the United States. All of the other presidents seem to come out with millions of dollars somehow.

Why are so many people worried about a billionaire that became a politician when they should be more worried how so many politicians have become millionaires?

--Whats your value to America? Are poor citizens less valuable than rich ones? What an odd thing to say.


“Is he as rich as he claims? Or is he a lying fraud??”
--Do you know how to even calculate Net Worth, its not like there is a super concrete formula, but lets just assume its Assets - Liabilities = Net Worth. That is only a glimpse. For example if you own $3,000,000 in assets and have $1,000,000 in loans or liabilities against those assets, your Net Worth would be $2,000,000 OR it could be potentially $3,000,000+ once the liabilities expire. Both are true senses of how much you are worth. But neither dictate your value to the american people, its just a score keeping method.


“Does he pay his taxes? Or does he cheat as much as humanly possible?”
--This one is pretty easy. Obviously hes not cheating if hes constantly under IRS audit (have you ever been audited?). Also it would do you well to read up on the tax code and why it exists. CITIZENS ARE ENCOURAGED TO USE THE TAX CODE TO THEIR BENEFIT. IT IS LITERALLY THE REWARD FOR DOING WHAT THE GOVERNMENT WANTS DONE. (This is why the tax code is 95% about how to claim deductions and only a very small amount of the code on collecting). So avoidance is the name of the game and all the smart players are doing it. Are you smart or not?


“Is he laundering money for foreign governments or criminals?”
--Please explain on which line of your tax return, or which scheduled form they itemize or use for this?!?!?!


If you want to know how legitimate someone is you follow the money
--This is true, so he has given his personal financial statement to interested parties, is under constant audit by the highest authority in the land, and donates his Presidential salary. Are you donating all the money you work for, AND being under the scrutiny of the most feared government entity?

Overall, sounds like a lot of misinformed whining.

Well, the IRS has his taxes, so I guess he does. I don't care about his wealth, I care about mine and Americans, why do you care more about a President's wealth than his constituents? Very odd.

I agree, Feels got Obama elected, we saw how that worked out. I like the fact Trump is making me a lot of money.

Bringing up crap like this is why Trump will win again. You guys just keep shooting yourself in the foot.

Clintons are billionaires, that's troubling. From nothing to billionaires, based on political connections.

The IRS is watching the money. The IRS knows hit net worth. If he was lying the IRS would have leaked it.

I'd love to follow the money on Biden and his son.

And all the other Congress members who make 200k a year and are worth 50 million dollars all the sudden.

And the Clinton "Charity" foundation.

But no, we're only worried about Trump's past tax returns. So damn stupid.
