In 2015, Forbes estimated Trump
was worth $4.1 billion.

In 2016, Forbes estimated his worth at $3.7 billion.

In 2018, Forbes estimated his worth at $3.1 billion.

In 2019, Forbes estimated his worth at $3.1 billion.

In 2020, Forbes estimated his worth at $2.1 billion.

I’ve been told repeatedly that Trump uses the office to enrich himself. Yet according to Forbes, he’s lost almost half his wealth since becoming a 2016 candidate.

I haven’t noticed any stories in the MSM about this. Did I miss any?

Has no bearing on his ability to effectively govern.

Just show us his Tax returns, that are in question, and i image quite a few people would be happy bunny rabbits.

But he canny, can he?

Or he would probably be joining a few of his buddies in jail.

Lemme get this right... his tax returns, filed with the IRS, with a signature swearing to their accuracy, if they were shown to the PUBLIC, you think it would lead to possible jail?

No offense... but that's a profoundly ignorant nonsensical statement. The IRS is jam packed full of lefties... have a half dozen friends that worked there... there's no way they would allow a bogus tax return from Trump to get a pass, if there was a problem with it.

Trump boasted that he's the only other president besides George Washington to forgo his paycheck.

Thing is history, as usual, is not on his side.

Herbert Hoover was the first American executive in chief to refuse a salary.

Hoover was a multimillionaire before assuming office from a previous career as an engineer and businessman and donated his paycheck to charitable causes.

Kennedy refused both his congressional salary and his presidential salary, though he kept his $50,000 expense account for ""public entertaining he must do as President"". Guess Marilyn was expensive. LoL

No offense, but i think everyone would like to see them.

After all ""stable geniuses"" like Trump would never have anything to hide surely?

The pandemic has lowered his net worth almost $1B. Since most of his money is tied up in real estate, he's being hit hard as well.

If he enacts changes that will bolster the economy his worth will go up again.

Get over it.
He doesn’t need to show them and there is no law requiring it.
What makes you think you will find something in them that the IRS couldn’t?
Don’t you remember Leftist Queen Rachel Maddow gloating on air that she had a copy of one only to have it blow up in her stupid face?
He paid more in taxes that year than 99.9% of Democrat politicians did.

No law, but why hide them if there is nothing to see?

Guys POTUS.

Other POTUS have extended the courtesy.

Not Donald through, one has to ponder, why that is???

One of the most scrutinized business owner in the US would go to jail just because the public saw his tax returns? I'm going to guess you wouldn't understand 1/10 of it if he did release it.

Because he knows his tax returns can be used to hurt him politically with sound bites.

He has absolutely nothing to gain by showing his tax returns.

HIs taxes are complicated. Every news story will be how he didn't pay enough in taxes or spin some perfectly legal deduction or tax strategy as dodging taxes.

If there was something nefarious in his tax returns, the IRS would have been all over it already.

You tell us why that is?
What is your grand theory?
Again...if the IRS hasn’t found any anomalies in them, why isn’t that good enough for you?
He has been the most scrutinized president in history and nobody has come up with any accusation that sticks, the IRS knows everything about him.....where is the mystery?
He is sticking his middle finger up to everyone and I have no problem with it whatsoever.
