NYT Tax Story Puts Trump In Bind: Admit Being A Business Failure Or Admit Lying On Taxes | MSNBC 1

 

Rachel Maddow points out that one of the key takeaways from the New York Times' story on Donald Trump's taxes is that the tax record portrays Trump as a terrible, money-losing businessman, unless he'd like to explain that he was illegally lying about business losses to avoid paying taxes. Aired on 09/28/2020.

  1. He called this Fake News, so if that’s the case….then he should sue NYT for defamation. But that means, in order to win the defamation suit he’d have to provide his “real” tax returns.

    • It’s the real estate game being put on front street

      @Cathie Ludemann he would never sue over this, because then he has to show his taxes lol and PROVE that its wrong. After office, he will have to do it but against the state of NY and probably federal prosecutors. LOL to anyone who thinks he pulls off a coup and stays in office. Even with blinders on, no judge could interpret the constitution in a way that lets a president keep office in a disputed election. He would have to make room for Nancy in the oval office, because not even Clarence Thomas could ignore the line of succession.

    • Hillary was behind the entire Russia hoax according to new DNI released documents. Let’s see if he (Russia Rachel Madcow) runs with this story!
      In it, he explains that Hillary Clinton was behind the Russia hoax to “stir up scandal” against Donald Trump to hurt him in the election in July 2016.

      Additionally that CIA Director John Brenna had apprised Barack Obama and other senior officials about the Clinton’s alleged approval of the plan.

      U.S. intelligence officials then made an investigative referral in September 2016 to the FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Peter Strzok regarding “Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. Presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private mail server.”

      It has been known for a long time that Clinton and the DNC were behind the paying Fusion GPS for Christopher Steele’s work/the dossier. But this goes a step further and actually links it as a formal plan referred to the Obama administration.

      This is huge and people really need to go to jail for the harm that was done here not only to Donald Trump but to the country.

    • @Marshall Ray man stfu with your BS

  2. No con lasts forever. Every con-job has an expiration date. Just ask Bernie Madoff. And Trump’s expiration date is soon approaching.

    Pelosi is 100% right, trump is a national security risk. He could use his position as POTUS to deal with his financial woes. Also, it is UNACCEPTABLE to have a President who EVADES TAXES!!!

    • Let’s see how many whoppers he tries tonight.

    • I don’t like presidents who love sperating families and putting them in cages.

    • @Sensible116 1

  12. Trump is not smart enough to have avoided paying taxes all those years, he’s just not. We need to know who’s aided him !

  13. So what else is new, Trump is a liar. That has already been established.

  14. He still has enough idiots that will vote for him no matter what he did or does. Trump has successfully divided this country. The psychological effects of the Trump era will last for generations.

    • Only Nazis and wannabee Nazis now. In some countries they outlaw the Nazi Party. Maybe we should outlaw the republican party since it seems full of Nazis now.

    • Bazza Bear But whether Trump or Putin is in charge, the results will be the same. Trump needs to be got rid of.

    • No shortage of idiots in the USA , just the fact he still has a chance for another term is proof of that. Hopefully the virus will thin out his base.

    • Marshall Ray oh crawl back
      To Brietbart troll. FO

  16. Trump likes to play down the coronavirus and his taxes.

    • Ask Joe Biden why he wrote the tax code that gave Trump all of these deductions. Joe Biden wrote the tax code, he’s been in government for 50 years and helped create the systemic racist system you say we have.

    • the only thing he would like to play up is Stormy’s

    • Chris Ask Joe, then refer to his teleprompter for the answer 👍🤣

      I hope that his tax returns are made public so everybody can comb through the details. I hope it is revealed to whom he owes his hundreds of millions of dollars. That includes if he borrowed money from Russia, North Korea, the Philippines etc etc. The Public deserves to know what further DANGERS he’s put everybody in. What arrangements has he made with leaders overseas? Why would someone as dangerous and intelligent as Vladimir Putin be doing/planning/consorting with the likes of that orange troglodyte? What is being orchestrated? The People need to know.

    • the biggest HOAX in our history, j. trump

    • EVERYTHING IS FAKE, JUST LIKE HIS HAIR!

  18. Hes exaggerating his losses to avoid paying taxes. Period. Fraud. Period.

  19. But he’s Trump. He ain’t paying nobody back. He doesn’t care about anything else but him. And he will blatantly cheat to win re election. I hate Trump’s guts.
