President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Tuesday that President Donald Trump has much to fear about having his tax returns released.

During an interview to promote his new book, titled “Disloyal,” Cohen was asked by Camerota why Trump is so reluctant to release his tax returns despite pledging for years to make them public.

Cohen replied that, for one thing, they would reveal Trump isn’t nearly as rich as he pretends to be.

“He doesn’t report the income he claims,” the former Trump attorney explained. “His wealth is not as significant, and I imagine they were probably lenient in how they took deductions.”

However, Cohen also said that being exposed for not being as wealthy as he has claimed is not the president’s biggest worry.

“His biggest fear is, if that tax return was released, there’s a whole slew of accountants and forensic accountants that will rip through it and he will end up with a massive tax bill, penalties, fines, and possibly even tax fraud,” he said.

Trump has a serious problem with women voters — even in red states

Published

In the past, Texas and Georgia were reliably Republican in presidential elections. But recent polls show that in the 2020 presidential election, Democratic nominee Joe Biden is surprisingly competitive in those light red states — and New York Times reporters Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin, analyzing some recent polling in an article published on September 24, cite female voters as a key reason.

According to newly released New York Times/Siena polls, Trump is leading Biden by 3% in Texas — while Trump and Biden are in a dead heat in Georgia. In Iowa, the Times and Siena found that Biden is ahead by 3%. The last Democratic presidential nominee to win Texas was Jimmy Carter in 1976; the last Democratic presidential nominee to win Georgia was Bill Clinton in 1992.

Published

President Donald Trump's rally rage is getting worse as the election near and his desperation grows.

A Washington Post analysis of his language revealed Trump's growing anger is manifesting into attacks against people of color and the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the media.

"Over the course of the rallies, Trump has amped up his attacks on refugees and a Muslim congresswoman, his approval of violence against journalists, his baseless theories about Joe Biden and his not-terribly subtle shunning of a mask to protect against the novel coronavirus," the Post explained.
