President Donald Trump was revealed as a tax fraud in a New York Times report Sunday evening. The report detailed the two years that Trump paid taxes; he only paid $750 each year. The self-described billionaire shows that he has nearly $500 million in debt.

Trump has built his career on the idea that he is one of the country’s best businessmen. He even founded the show “The Apprentice” to promote his business expertise and pick the next big business expert. The Times reported Trump has earned more money by pretending to be a businessman than he has made actually developing business.

Ironically, Trump attacked former President Barack Obama for only paying 20% in taxes in 2012. Trump paid far less.

In 2016, Trump campaigned on the idea that a businessman in the White House was what America needed to rebuild an economy that former President Barack Obama had already rescued from what was, at the time, the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. That crisis has since been revealed by the high unemployment due to Trump’s failure to handle the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump was mocked and attacked for stealing from the American taxpayer with millions in refunds, hefty hair-do fees, Ivanka Trump’s makeup costs, paying off affairs and sexual harassment allegations and so many more scams.

Trump’s supporters tried to claim that it was an example of the president’s “genius.”

‘Dangerously out of touch’: Ex-White House adviser slams Trump and Larry Kudlow for bragging about the economy

Published

on

President Donald Trump's top economic and trade adviser Larry Kudlow is "out of touch," according to former White House economist Austan Goolsbee.

Speaking to MSNBC's Katy Tur, Goolsbee explained that Trump's celebration of the GDP is unwarranted because it took such a significant dive. It's a lot like losing $100 and getting back $60, said Tur.

"You score five runs in one inning, that is a good inning, but if you let up ten runs in the inning before that you're still way down," Goolsbee explained. "I think the numbers look very much like what happened in the job market over the summer. Where we started with a 21 million job loss, and we made back a little over half of that. And then we kind of stalled out. We're still adding jobs, but you also saw this morning another epically bad new unemployment claims number. You still have well over 700,000 people filing for unemployment insurance newly this week. Now we're seeing this on the GDP side. Certainly, this is a positive. You would not want a smaller number, but it has to be bigger and more sustained than what we saw today before we can say that we're back to normal."

Trump’s latest convoluted Biden conspiracy is that he thinks Antifa is the same as the United States

Published

on

It's difficult to understand the precise reasoning behind President Donald Trump's latest claim made at a Tampa, Florida rally on Thursday.

According to Trump, Biden once said that Antifa is an "idea" not an organization. Biden also said that America is an "idea." Ergo, Biden thinks the United States is Antifa.

It's the same logic used by first-semester philosophy majors: My dog's hair is blond. Trump's hair is blond. Therefore, my dog is president.

Biden speaks about America as not just a country, but a groundbreaking government that had never been attempted in the world when the country was founded.
