image for Tax Returns Show Trump Looting Treasury to Stave Off His Own Financial Disaster

The great white whale of Trump-era journalism was finally harpooned and boated on Sunday night — Tax returns, ho!

In 2018, The New York Times published an exhaustive report on the myriad ways the Trump family, going back to patriarch Fred Trump, used a variety of tax dodges to hide the family fortune.

This latest Times report lays out what Donald Trump has done with that fortune, up to and including the years he has been in office.

“The tax returns that Mr. Trump has long fought to keep private tell a story fundamentally different from the one he has sold to the American public,” reads the Times report.

According to Alexander’s tally, Trump is $100 million in debt for Trump Tower, with the loan coming due in less than two years.

That being said, now we have the receipts, and they portray Trump as being much more than merely greedy.

He’s doing it to stave off looming financial disaster; he’s looting the Treasury not simply because he can, but because he absolutely has to if he wants to avoid getting pauperized by his own horrid business instincts. »

As of 2015, he had accumulated 15 golf resorts, and it's difficult to find one that's actually operating at a profit.

Since then, the property has gobbled up $162 million in losses, especially after Trump burned through another $213 million in upkeep. »
