REVEALED: Trump tax report details how president’s best source of income came from lying to the press

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s political career has been defined by his constant pattern of lying. His business career also saw success when he would lie, The New York Times bombshell report on the president’s taxes revealed.

The report detailed staggering loses for Trump after multiple failed business ventures.

However, Trump did find a way to make money. Not by constructing buildings or managing casinos, but by lying to the press.

“As losses from his core enterprises mounted, Mr. Trump took on a new public role, trading on his business-titan brand to present himself as a corporate raider. He would acquire shares in a company with borrowed money, suggest publicly that he was contemplating buying enough to become a majority owner, then quietly sell on the resulting rise in the stock price,” The Times explained.

However, the tactic lost power as people came to distrust Trump’s public statements.

“The tactic worked for a brief period — earning Mr. Trump millions of dollars in gains — until investors realized that he would not follow through,” The Times added. “As with many things Trump, his adventures in the stock market were more image than substance, helped greatly by news reports quoting anonymous sources said to have knowledge of Mr. Trump’s actions.”

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.

Trump doubles down after being confronted with his claim Biden wants an ‘invasion’ of suburbs

Published

At Wednesday's press conference, President Donald Trump was confronted with his claim that former Vice President Joe Biden would trigger an "invasion" of suburban neighborhoods — widely considered to be a racist dog whistle for affordable housing that will attract more people of color.

“What do you mean by invasion?” the reporter asked.

“They’re going to open up areas of your neighborhoods — they’re going to destroy suburbia,” insisted Trump. He added that "by the way, 30 percent of the people in suburbia are minorities," evidently on the defensive from claims that he was appealing to racism.
