Aye, they will be ""complicated"" all right.


Criminally so i imagine.



FFS?
So you think the IRS Is just looking the other way every #ing year he files his taxes?
That takes a special kind of stupid to think the IRS is letting him slide on tax crimes.

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.


LOL, and once you saw them, (and likely would need a tax attorney to explain them to you) and you found he did things legally, what then? You would like Trump? You would stop looking for an excuse to bash him? Be honest, you will never, ever be OK with that country across the pond from you having a president that somehow angers you. I sure hope you are really happy with your own government. If you spend half as much time complaining about that, you might be a heart attack waiting to happen.

call the IRS and make a formal complaint. Tell them all about the evidence you have. I'm sure they would love to get him.

I'm not a tax attorney, nor lawyer, so yes i probably would indeed.

You too i imagine if you are honest and not a tax attorney. LoL

He angers plenty of people network dude, plenty of Americans included. x

Im not happy with my own government, far from it. LoL

Think you may find its Trump with the heart attack waiting to happen with the hydroxychloroquine popping, diet, and whatnot. x

getting real tired with people saying "if he has nothing to hide why hide it", like seriously have people forgot what country this is, its not the USSR or china, people have a right to privacy.

maybe he would've released it if it wasn't demanded, its about the principle of the right to privacy, he won't release it to the public because its his right to.

why hide it from the public? because its his right to hide it as an American citizen.

There is not going to be a rock on the planet the man can hide under rather soon, tax returns or no tax returns.

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?


Let's assume for the sake of argument that Forbes is correct. All that means is that Trump is making a small fortune in the time-honored way--he's starting with a larger fortune inherited from his father and dribbling it away.

However, his net worth at any given point in time has no bearing on whether Trump is or is not "enriching" himself by improperly using the office of President. Technically, what he is being accused of in 3 different lawsuits is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. If he is improperly taking emoluments from any source he is simply slowing the rate at which his net wealth is evaporating and that would be a form of "enrichment".

No, it is just the typical leftist doesn't understand the tax code and will latch on to anything to try to paint how his taxes are prepared in a negative light.

For example, Trump will probably be paying a lot of capital gains or may have carried interest from equity investments. The first thing out of the left's mouth will be he is paying a lower percentage because they don't know (or willingly lie) about the differences in how the tax code treats investment income vs wage income.

Or given he is in real estate, you can write off some substantial losses to reduce future tax burden.

The point is the tax code is the tax code. If he wasn't following it, the IRS would be all over him. Having your complicated tax returns picked apart by some half-wit journalist looking for a big story is a no win for Trump.

We've already been down this road with Mitt Romney who had his tax returns picked apart despite the fact he gave millions to charity (his church which obivous the left didn't like).

Trump pays his taxes, the left will claim he makes too much money.

Trump has a low tax rate, the left won't be happy.

Trump doesn't make as much as he boasts, the left will use that to slam him.

There is no good politically that comes from Trump releasing his tax returns.

Fate, retribution, vengeance, justice.

Take your pick really.

But what that Mans, perpetrated and gotten away with, undetected as of yet, is apt to come out in the wash.

History won't remember Trump well.

Nor should it.

So Trump can't even make money by being a politician? Is that what you're saying?

Now he's the only guy in history who can't get rich by owning a casino or by being an elected official.

many wish the world was a place where you get what you want everytime, but it isn't, so i doubt your assertion. and history isn't up to the present to judge, only the future can judge properly.

I'm not a tax attorney either. But then, I'm not crying like a school girl to see his taxes. I trust that whatever his personal business is, has been looked at quite thoroughly by the IRS, since they have been a weapon of the left for a while now.

I am continually baffled that most of the Trump haters here are all from somewhere else. Trump is so damn good at getting into people's heads he can do it from thousands of miles away. Do you send him a bill for the rent in your head, or are you just a charitable kind of bloke?

Damn, We just figured out Trump's plan. He got it from Obama. He can make the IRS be his lap dog (as I'm sure they are all Apolitical) and he can fix his family to get super tax breaks on their Ukraine jobs with Oil companies. Oh wait, maybe that isn't it......

What you mean to say is 'History won't remember Trump well...by a few people.'

Only a fool would ignore the silent Red Wave that is coming. I'll wager you on that. You're desperate to find anything on him. And like CNN, MSNBC, the FBI and all the left...you will find nothing.


The left is essentially the melting witch in OZ. Lashing out in the last death rattles.

I do wonder what things Trump could get done once he hasn't a care in the world about the impeachment, the investigations, and the strong resistance. He might do great things, or he might lame duck it. Time will tell. But if we can pull out of this current mess, rebuild the economy, and rebuild the trust with the first responders after they were sh!t on by so many, I think it will be hard to look at his presidency and not see some good things about it.
