  1. Sooo a “news” station is reporting something that they haven’t seen..? So they are stipulating? I thought news was supposed to be factual? So if I say “I poop gold!” You should go ahead and report that as a fact without proof. Once I see proof, I’ll agree.

  2. And more ‘krat bs from the fake news…

    America does not need to see the tax returns of a billionaire who became a public servant.
    America needs to see the tax returns of public servants who became multi-millionaires while being public servants.

  3. I really don't know what fake news is but I do know one thing…. This country needs Donald Trump 20/20!! We can't let Grandpa Biden come in and let everybody else do his job for him because that's what's going to happen. Grandpa Biden is the perfect example of a figurehead for leadership of a country. He will make no decisions. Everyone else in the Democratic Administration will make all the decisions and all he will do is stand there and hopefully be able to read and repeat what he is reading on the paper with information on and not get things screwed up like he did in Michigan in a press conference the other week. How do you get Michigan and the Military mixed up I'll never know. Plus all his numbers were completely wrong about the Covid-19 victims and yes they made up a number that's not even possible to exist…..TRUMP 2020

  4. President Tump paid taxes of $750. I paid $17,000 that year. Now, I'm seriously considering hiring my daughter as a gardening consultant to avoid paying further taxes. Hope all tax payers take note – not paying your taxes do not disqualify you from running for US President.

  5. Trump where is melanin…..let her come out in all her shades to speak for you now…haaaaaaa!!, No wonder she hasn't divorced Trump yet, there was nothing to share, wait until the federal coffers fill up the Trump chest to brim……

  6. Lmfao you dems and bias media are ridiculous, using the same strategy as 2016 this will get them no where. TRUMP 2020. Cant wait for the debates without teleprompters, this is going to be embarrassing for Biden 🤣🤣🤣

  7. We do not need any more laws that suppress us we do not need any more laws that brakes up families we do not need a system that attacks immigrants like there criminal we do not need a police that murder people in cold blood we do not need a president that spreads racism and divid a nation we do not need a president that's responsible for millions of Americans deaths we do not need a irresponsible person that cheats and lies to to become president your money cant buy back all the lifes that have perished under your supervisor we do not need a president that's only way of solving problems is using violence. We do not need some one that only cares about the rich and forgets about our young youth has no remorse about the elders and community attacks sanctuary communities. You have no kind of leadership mr trump

  8. A person who runs companies never has to pay income tax if they choose not to take any income from the company. The company or companies are legal entities in their own right. What these reports fail to mention is if Trump’s companies paid any tax. Which they probably did. Stop making up things to lead the people in to believing your nonsense just to serve your own agenda.

  9. So next up is some form of invasion of a lesser known country to deflect away from the fact he has cheated millions out of the system. Never trust a man who looks like he sells second hand sunbeds.

  10. Donald Trump has lied to and cheated on all three of his wives, what makes you think he wouldn't lie and cheat on his taxes as well? Lying, cheating and stealing is a way of life for the Trump Crime Family.

  11. adulterer, draft dodger, tax evader,
    tax cheat, despot-in-waiting. so many
    other titles to add to this. of all the
    pres more than likely the only one
    with no morals or honor. he's even
    exhibited improper thoughts towards
    his daughter. worst pres.

  12. By Hook Or By Crook

    Most folks adhere to some form of moral standard. For some, this standard may be based on a religious or political belief. For others, this standard may simply be based on some form of acceptable social ethics. But some folks’ standards are not based on religion or politics or any form of acceptable ethics. Some folks’ moral standard is based on the old adage, ‘by hook or by crook.’ Which means ‘by any means necessary.’

    This is a standard that has been followed by pirates, gangsters, con-artists, grifters, and thieves, of all stripes, since time immemorial. Those who follow it have been the bane of law-abiding, God-fearing, and morally upstanding people since people first formed into social groups. They have been feared, despised, hated, loved, admired, and emulated. They fill our police blotters, pulp-fiction, action movies, and news broadcasts. They walk the streets of the hood, they haunt the halls of Congress, and they inhabit the boardrooms of big business. They may be your co-worker, next-door neighbor, or even a family member.

    It is hard to say what kind of child, or when and how a child will pick up this standard of behavior. For some, it may be due to a form of trauma. For others, it may be due to how they are raised. For many, it is probably a combination of both. Donald Trump was raised by his father with this standard, and he, in turn, raised his children in the same way. His father taught him that the only thing that matters is winning and in order to win one has to be a killer. In other words, one has to win ‘by hook or by crook.’

    What does this mean? It means that all other standards of behavior, be they religious, political, or ethical in any socially acceptable way, are secondary. It means that honesty, fairness, and compassion are seen as signs of weakness, while dishonesty, double-dealing, and cold-heartedness are seen as signs of strength.

    In the world of the pirate, gangster, con-artist, grifter and thief, to outsmart, con, take, buffalo, hoodwink or rip-off the common citizen, mark, John, or sucker is not only a sign of success but confirmation of one’s own superiority over the ordinary human being. Because at the core of a criminal’s cynical rationalizations and justifications for doing what they do is a belief that the ordinary human being is stupid and the moral beliefs and standards of ordinary human beings are foolish. And so, ordinary human beings deserve what they get.

    Donald Trump and his family have carried these cynical rationalizations and justifications of the common criminal into their adult lives and into the White House of the United States. And they have succeeded, with the help of corrupt politicians, disgruntled Americans, and a foreign government, in pulling off one of the greatest political cons, economic heists, and social grifts in human history. And the American People, the American economy, and the American political system are now being held hostage by a virtual gang of pirates who are busy ransacking the coffers of the American government and wrecking the

    American ship of state for as long as they can get away with it.
    The American people must now wake up to what is happening and muster all of the weapons the legal and electoral systems have to offer, in order to launch a full-frontal assault on these marauders and drive them out. And we must drive them out, because these pirates, gangsters, con-artists, grifters, and thieves care nothing for the standards of our representative democracy that we value. They do not care about democracy and they have no business being involved in the management of our government. They only seek to satisfy their insatiable and prideful need to win ‘by hook or by crook,’ and they will destroy our constitutional republic in the process if we let them. We must not let them.

  13.

  14. there's only one reason why "the NYT hasn't published them for us to see". if they demonstrated something illegal or unethical — or even simply substantively meaningful in a negative way — on Trump's part, they'd be in the pages of the NYT today. instead, they have picked out the equivalent of "sound bites" from the forms that put him in the worst light possible. if what they've put out is indeed the worst, i doubt it will bother anyone other than his critics, who will pretend a low tax bill means "tax evasion" (several commenters have already made this error), but "tax avoidance" is both legal and ethical, and isn't the same as "tax evasion" (which is a crime). so, here's a simple question one would think a decent "journalist" would have asked about the NYT's disclosures: what did Trump pay in taxes in the other 5 of the previous 15 years? anybody? anybody?
