President Donald Trump’s Saturday at Trump International Golf Club did not seem to relax the commander-in-chief.

Upon returning to Mar-a-Lago, Trump lashed out the highly-anticipated upcoming book, A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig for being “demeaning and belittling.”

He also attacked a plan to build a sea wall to protect New York City from climate change for economic, intellectual, environmental and aesthetic reasons.

“A massive 200 Billion Dollar Sea Wall, built around New York to protect it from rare storms, is a costly, foolish & environmentally unfriendly idea that, when needed, probably won’t work anyway. It will also look terrible,” Trump argued.

He then presented his counter-proposal.

“Sorry, you’ll just have to get your mops & buckets ready!” the commander-in-chief suggested.

Speaking to MSNBC on Monday about the recent bombshell report about President Donald Trump's taxes, his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, explained that behind closed doors, Trump is likely panicking.

Complaints have already been filed against the Trump Organization for it.

Conservative says Trump’s tax revelations show another reason he’s so terrified to leave office

Published

Conservative Washington Post writer Max Boot noted that the recent revelations about President Donald Trump's taxes expose the real reason that he's terrified to leave office.

Writing Monday, Boot began by admitting that Hillary Clinton was right all along. It's one of many things she warned of in the 2016 election that went ignored by the Republican Party and the majority of voters in Rust Belt states.

"He managed to pay no federal income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — and only $750 in 2016 and 2017 — by claiming vast losses from his business empire," Boot said, citing the New York Times report. "That $750 figure is a killer because it’s a number that middle-class Americans can understand. As a just-released Biden campaign ad points out, that’s far less than the taxes paid by the average teacher, nurse or firefighter."
