Appearing at a rally in Sioux Center, Iowa,  2016 GOP presidential front runner Donald Trump jokingly said his fans are so loyal to him that he could shoot somebody and “not lose any voters.”

The billionaire businessman, who seems to get a bump in the polls every time he makes an outrageous statement, may not be far off the mark with his comments.

“They say I have the most loyal people,” Trump said, “Where I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible.”

As members of the crowd laughed, Trump added, “You know they say, Trump’s voters are — I’m at 68, 69 percent — I’m at 90 percent total [in the polls].”

Trump then slammed the other GOP candidates by saying their support is either “soft” or “they have no people.”

Trump biographer: President is a ‘serial, massive, calculated, tax cheater’

Published

Pulitizer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston blasted the president of the United States as a, "serial, massive, calculated, tax cheater" Monday evening appearance on MSNBC.

"Here is the first question I have for you. Like, rich people get away with murder in the tax code all the time," anchor Chris Hayes noted. "This strikes me as a whole other universe level of, like, abnormality. What is your reaction to it? How should we think about it?"

"First of all, understand that America has two income tax systems. One is for workers and pensioners and others whose income is verified by the government and you can't cheat in that system and you have to pay your taxes before you get your money. The other system is for the owners of private businesses like Donald Trump, they tell the government what they say they made, they pay what they say they owe and unless they're audited, the government accepts that and we're down to auditing less than 3% of people with half-million-dollar to multi-billion dollar incomes," he explained.

Mick Mulvaney predicts 2 presidential debates will be canceled: ‘It’ll be the only one’

Published

on

President Donald Trump's former chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, seemed to indicate that his former boss might dodge additional presidential debates if he bombs in the first debate as he did in 2016.

In a conversation with Irish journalist Caitriona Perry, Mulvaney agreed with speculation about the election saying that because of the number of mailed-in ballots, the results of the election may not come for a few days. Somehow that makes Trump question the legitimacy.

When Perry asked about Trump's conspiracy theory that former Vice President Joe Biden is on debate performance-enhancing drugs, Mulvaney chuckled and said he thinks it "would be a lot of fun."

Peter Strzok questions Trump’s hidden assets not found in bombshell report — and if he’s compromised because of it

Published

on

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok sounded the alarm about the recent revelations in the New York Times exposé on President Donald Trump's taxes. According to him, there should be a counterintelligence investigation into Trump's finances and how they coincide with foreign policies that make no sense for the United States.

Speaking with former FBI deputy Frank Figliuzzi and MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace, Strzok called the Times report a "roadmap" for the ways in which Trump could be compromised by hostile powers. It could also explain Trump's issues he has with the intelligence community, who would know about any deals he may have made.
