Trump Literally Cannot Afford to Run for President!

I've always called him a fake candidate who is likely to quit. Here's a fascinating reason why he never really even began running: to skate on what may be millions in additional tax liability.

Donald Trump has to spend more time on his real estate work than on his campaign. Has to. Why is Trump in Scotland? Heís racking up the hours. Why does Trump have so many of his events at Trump properties? Itís not just so that Trump can route dollars back to his single-owner company. Itís also so that every speech, fundraiser, and overnight spent in a Trump facility can be put on the scales.

Thereís a minimum of 750 hours a year that a real estate professional has to invest in the area. But it doesnít matter if Trump passes that number or not.

The real squeeze is that Trump is a half-time candidate. A less than half-time candidate. One whose first thought is always for the golf course, the casino, the hotel, the apartment building, the parking garage, and somewhere Ö way down there Ö the people and the nation.

Trumpís the 45% candidate. If that much. Do you think he told Republican voters, that theyíre literally not worth his full attention?

3. How so? I certainly can't take

A private jet to Scotland, etc. He doesn't speak about things the way anyone in my household speaks. He doesn't feel like one of us.

5. Just merely saying that it looks like he can afford to run for President about as much

I and the rest of the 99% can.

2. I'd love to hear his economic strategy

He filed for bankruptcy how many times? ... and his idiot comments have lost most of his corporate scholarships. Haha. I believe it.

4. His economic strategy is for America to file for bankruptcy.

Literally, that's it. Apparently nobody ever told him that Section 4 of the 14th Amendment forbids that.
