On Tuesday, The New York Times revealed 10 years worth of President Donald Trump’s tax information.
The report revealed that Trump had over a billion dollars in losses. CNN’s Erin Burnett said that it was not “normal” and called Trump the “biggest loser.”
“But in the granular detail of tax results, it gives a precise accounting of the president’s financial failures and of the constantly shifting focus that would characterize his decades in business,” the report said.
“Year after year Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual taxpayer. In just two years, he lost more than double the next biggest loser in this country,” Burnett said.
“That’s right. There’s a database the IRS compiles of high-income earners like Mr. Trump. Most of them are business owners like him. They show revenue from businesses on their tax returns. Year after year in this cycle he is on the outer limits of people who are recording those kinds of losses. Then rolls it over into the next year. He gets this massive loss for the decade of over a billion dollars,” New York Times reporter Russ Buettner said.
“He’s literally the biggest loser,” Burnett added. “There’s quite an irony there. This is something that isn’t normal.”

‘A slam-dunk-case’: MSNBC analysts predict GOP will defend Trump — and ‘the guy is going to get off’
More evidence was outed Sunday as the Wall Street Journal revealed emails from EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland, who promised to keep the White House abreast of President Donald Trump's demand for an investigation by Ukraine. The news prompted an MSNBC panelists to explain that it wouldn't matter how much evidence was presented, Republicans will never vote to remove Trump.
Host Geoff Bennett asked about the witness testimony and preponderance of evidence that "all points in one direction at this point, that President Trump orchestrated this entire" Ukraine investigations.
"It's a slam dunk case, and yet we know the guy is going to get off," said Los Angels Times White House reporter Eli Stokols. "That's effectively what you're saying. Because all the testimony has lined up so closely, the fact that [EU Ambassador Gordon] Sondland has come to come in, and because testimony from [Ambassador Bill] Taylor and others, has had to change testimony, Republicans have no choice -- the president has no choice but to try to dismiss the entire thing as partisan."
President helped ‘increase anti-Trump turnout’ in red-state governor’s races — which could spell disaster for the GOP
President Donald Trump was once the Republican Party's greatest asset in an election, mobilizing thousands of supporters to rush to the polls. Recently, however, it seems he's now driving anti-Trump votes up so much that it may no longer be worth the Trump trouble.
“So you’ve got to give me a big win, please,” Trump told a Louisiana crowd this week before the GOP candidate lost the governor's race in a red state.
“What Trump did in Louisiana was increase voter participation. While he increased the pro-Trump turnout, he also increased the anti-Trump turnout. That’s kind of the lesson here,” polling analyst Ron Faucheux told The Washington Post in an interview.
Fire holds off Hong Kong police at campus as democracy protests escalate
A large fire held off an apparent police advance on the Hong Kong campus where hundreds of pro-democracy protesters were holed up early Monday, hours after officers warned they may use "live rounds" if confronted by deadly weapons in a dangerous escalation of the near six-month crisis engulfing the city.
Protests have rocked the global financial hub since June, with many in the city of 7.5 million people venting fury at eroding freedoms under Chinese rule.
China has repeatedly warned that it will not tolerate the dissent, and there have been concerns that Beijing could send in troops to put an end to the spiralling unrest.
