Trump's tax returns show detailed look at reported income losses l GMA

Trump Avoided Taxes For Years, Paid $750 In 2016: Report Morning Joe MSNBC

Trump's approval rating has been as low as 37% so there is room for him to drop 7% more

I have seen several posts saying none of this tax stuff will matter but it's possible it could. If you look at 538's approval rating chart for Trump, in 2017 his approval rating got down to just below 37% and just two months ago, he was at 40%. He wavers between 37 and 44% so 7% of the country changes their mind about him from time to time. Maybe enough for a Biden landslide or at worst just make sure Biden wins.

So everything bad coming out on Trump is worth it regardless of what the naysayers say. It will do some damage and there are some undecided voters still out there.

Should Biden bring in the women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct to the debate?

Trump did it to Hillary with the Bill Clinton accusers and it didn't really go over that well but his supporters loved it. Would that seem petty or just giving Trump some of his own medicine?

I have noticed a huge uptick in people referring to Trump fans as cult members on social media

debates. Nice to see this catching on because it's spot on and I think it will begin to get under their cult member skin.

Trump being too broke to pay taxes is a better angle than him getting out of paying taxes

that is until it can be proven he broke laws. Take away Trump's money and he looks weak and becomes one of the masses. He will use the "I am smart to avoid paying taxes" line otherwise.

Someone posted Dan Rather's quote which is the PERFECT dagger into Trump's gut:

It appears that the real definition of “hoax” is the “business mogul” America saw on The Apprentice.

I wonder if every week we are going to get a bombshell like this?

It's not even October yet.

They love to scream about supporting poor people but don't care about supporting Trump

There really is no reasoning with these people. PERIOD!

So Eric Trump will be under oath on Oct. 7th about Trump's financial dealings

With everything that just broke, what new could come of that? Seems they wanted him under oath before the election.

18 Revelations From a Trove of Trump Tax Records

Among the key findings of The Times’s investigation:

Mr. Trump paid no federal income taxes in 11 of 18 years that The Times examined. In 2017, after he became president, his tax bill was only $750.

He has reduced his tax bill with questionable measures, including a $72.9 million tax refund that is the subject of an audit by the Internal Revenue Service.

Many of his signature businesses, including his golf courses, report losing large amounts of money — losses that have helped him to lower his taxes.

The financial pressure on him is increasing as hundreds of millions of dollars in loans he personally guaranteed are soon coming due.

Even while declaring losses, he has managed to enjoy a lavish lifestyle by taking tax deductions on what most people would consider personal expenses, including residences, aircraft and $70,000 in hairstyling for television.

Ivanka Trump, while working as an employee of the Trump Organization, appears to have received “consulting fees” that also helped reduce the family’s tax bill.

As president, he has received more money from foreign sources and U.S. interest groups than previously known. The records do not reveal any previously unreported connections to Russia.
