  1. The best part of the story is there’s more to come, much more.

    • @Andria Marie Optimist.

    • @goe1punk Trump may have assets, though we don’t know – yet – if he has any equity in those assets. Also, it seems his businesses have been losing money, and, if he has been taking out loans to service his other debt and operational expenses, and those bridge loans are coming due, and he can’t pay them, he’s insolvent. He’d have to sell off assets to pay off his loans. And, without equity, and in a seller’s market, selling a business that’s losing money, he may not realize much from those sales. Either way, $425mill in debt means a LOT of people have leverage over the US President, and may well explain much of the questionable moves Trump has pushed in the last few years. It’s no exaggeration to say that Trump’s debt situation is a serious US security risk (even after he’s out of office).

    • Veritas Posts PROOF Of Cash Paid For Ballots,
      Police Investigating, Ilhan Omar MOCKS Trump Over It

    • God wins I am so glad this is my team … the most dangerous place for a black child in America is its womb… because of democratic policy… I want more black people not less … if you know a black person vote trump it could save their life…

    • @Ant B This exact story ran 2 weeks before his debate with Killary !!

  2. Trump cheats at golf his wives taxes and the American people. Vote blue everyone. 👣👣💙💙

  3. A man who can’t balance his own personal account sheet, can’t be expected to balance the account sheet of the country.

  4. Trump is what’s called a reverse billionaire, which means he’s not actually worth a billion dollars, it means he’s a billion dollars in debt.

    • 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.

    • @anonymusum lol

    • @Marshall Ray 😄 moron

    • @Johnny one Trump lied to get on the Fortune 500 list. He is on an audio tape claiming to be someone else, verifying Trump’s claims of wealth.

  5. his voters will pay the poor poor billionaires taxes for him. all those confederate traitors and nazis.

    • @Larisa 7 you idiots realize the Nazis were the National SOCIALIST party and the USSR stood for United Soviet SOCIALIST Republic right Einstein?

    • Stranger Brothers | September 29, 2020 at 9:54 AM | Reply

      @Larry Garland Note for future reference, never refer to others as idiots if you yourself can’t even fake having a clue.

      They actually were the National Socialist German Worker’s Party and their national socialism is only confused with actual socialism by people who haven’t read history. The Nazis took over the existing German social system of state support and promptly set to eliminating anyone who benefited from it. And they used to be the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and they practiced communism, not socialism, they were republics in name only and their “union” was more of their tanks are already here kind of wedding.

    • Let them. They’re broke too but not in debt by millions so technically they are richer than he is.

    • Don’t breed you brainless clown!

  6. Turkey only paid him 1mil to slaughter our allies, the kurds. Hmm, he could sell Alaska to Putin for the 450million ish he owes. Kushner got, what was it, 1billion or 100million, from Qatar? Qatar had to pay up or the Saudis were never going to lift the trade embargo.

    • @Vintage Things Your argument that president Trump created covid-19 is ridiculous and desperate. President Trump followed the advice of your beloved Fauci.,he admitted that. Since 2016,it’s been one conspiracy after another from a woman that dresses like a funeral director.

    • @Vintage Things And let’s not forget the 200 thousand Americans who die every year from conditions related to air pollution, that he’s done everything he can to allow his donors in th’ orl bidness to keep pumping out.

    • @macbeth moray He has no honor.

    • @jean reynolds Nor knows what shame is.

    • @Steve Smith Not sure if you have problem reading or have eye sight problem. When did anyone here said trump created covid-19? So because people die from pollution anyway so no need to do anything about the pandemic? What kind of F up logic is this?
      Remember not only trump did next to nothing. He brought back the people that are infected zone to the US without proper precaution or quarantine. He told people that its a hoax and it will disappear like a miracle. Lets not forget the classic where he suggested people to inject themselves with disinfectant. Even after more than 200k people had died he is still saying it will be ok after herd immunity kicks in. I wonder how many need to die before that happen. Going as far not telling his supporters to wear mask or practice social distancing in his rallies. If this is not mess up i do not know what is.

  7. He never pays his debts. Look how many he has stuffed.

      Our Lady comes all in white. She says: “Praise be to Jesus. Today, dear children, make My joy complete by being united in the Truth. Open your hearts and recognize the great urgency in choosing the Truth in this upcoming election. Recognize that you must choose good over evil. Anarchy is not from God – neither is the defunding of the police. My Son and Papa God will not support you in such arrogant choices. They would step back and watch you fall in the failure of your choices – this is the Truth. Therefore, do not listen to the evil promises of ambitious men – that is unwise and will lead this nation* to destruction. Destruction is the evil agenda of powerful men who wish to undo the Truths this nation was built upon.*** These unworthy leaders are trying to usher in a One World Order, which is impossible to achieve unless this nation is dissolved. These evil ambitious leaders gain ground by fanning the flames of racism.”

      @goe1punk Actually buttercup, I could have given you a couple of pages explaining, just based on what’s in the Times article and public record, just how bad our Beloved President’s current financial situation really is, even with his assets. I just thought I’d give you the best short answer I could come up with. I apologize for overestimating your intelligence.

    • @Stranger Brothers “Actually buttercup, BLaH BLaH BLaH i have no proof just talk… as usual your intelligence.”

  8. As an accountant and with the info revealed so far, if true, I would say trump org is getting close to insolvency. He will need his pay check to pay his lawyers.

  9. Trump is broke, now he’s aiming to make democracy broke.

    • He has got the biggest piggy bank in the world, it’s called the United States of America SUCKERS

    • He could very well steal the election, in a more brazen version of the Republican theft of the 2000 election. And even if he doesn’t, he’s in until late January, I think. And a country stupid enough to elect him once is a country stupid enough to elect him twice. But the Republicans are setting the stage to prevent potentially a lot of mail-in ballots from being counted.

      Even if he loses the election, he is not, “out in 5 weeks.” If he loses, the Tangerine Tyrant is going to be the most destructive lame duck President in the history of the United States.

      Faireachas Síoraí ……if it’s a landslide loss, that’s the way it’ll have to be , then he’s not going to clean up( transition) , he’ll resign. Leave it to Pence , and have his Pardon on the Federal charges…….he’ll still be screwed on the state ones. Staying till the end , isn’t in his character…….he’s the kind to take the ball home because he can’t play type.

      @BBlack6868 LiveTrading That’s one of the same scenarios that I see as possible except that he will resign from Mar-a-Logo, get his pardon, and count on not being extradited by his Florida cronies… or flee overseas. His buddy Putin might help him, if Putin doesn’t off him for not being able to repay what he owes.

    • @BBlack6868 LiveTrading my money is on Trump staying in as long as possible. You’re right that he’ll sulk, but I think he’ll cling to power until the last moment he can.

  11. Plenty scary. But then, his self-delusions of being a good businessman brought it on himself.

  12. Are you surprised ?? Vote this clown out.

  13. Hope Melania is squirreling away the grocery money.

    • @John michael Do you always ramble this much? Get this through your tiny brain…donald trump is a con man, a liar, a COMMON criminal. He is not smart. He doesn’t have a big brain. He has the singular gift of being able to spot a weakness and exploit it. You might say that was a gift from god. He is inept, incompetent. Stop fretting over a fetus and start thinking about the 206,000+ actual living breathing people who trump didn’t care about and didn’t protect and who are now dead. DEAD. That’s on trump.

    • Especially toilet-paper with this covid-19

      @Brian Nave He is lucky it’s an honour just to be nominated.

    • ​@Brian Nave This is not news. It’s satire. Four Australian law professors? Why Australian? Because all the law professors in the US are too stupid to recognize Trump’s genius? Why the third nomination? Because any professor can nominate any person no matter how undeserving he or she is? Are you a professor of law or even philosophy? If so, you should nominate Trump. For the laughs, make it four nominations.

    • Thankfully he gave more evidence.

    • Well, they are both imbeciles and parasites… And yea, they both have the same basic lack of humanity but even Eric could not be as bad a businessman as his father…

    “Trump appears to be up against the wall financially.” It that the wall Mexico is paying for?

    • @soaringvulture The Russian collusion with the Steele dosier paid for by the DNC will be the real crime here, it’s coming together soon.

    • @Dan Erickson Why are the Trump trolls still bringing this stuff up? Russia tried to get Trump elected in 2016. Trump refuses to criticize Putin. Now those are crimes.

    • @soaringvulture Hmm tell you what Trump was wealthy before he got into politics. What I would like to know is all the people Republican or Democrat that became wealthy after they got into politics. Your candidate Joe and his son are two of them and I am sure there are many more. How a Congress member can buy a 10 million dollar house on 180k a year is beyond me. As far as taxes, let’s see some of these other politicians taxes, if you follow the money the corrupt ones should be pretty evident.

    • @Dan Erickson But Danny, you can see other politicians’ tax returns. Trump’s the only one who keeps them hidden. Do you think he as a reason to do this? Perhaps it’s because the corruption would be evident.

    • @soaringvulture the way the tax code is written into law and gave big businesses tax breaks was an Obama executive Presidential order. If you are a corporation which is an entity not a individual person. You can claim your losses as a corporate tax break. The people that work at that corporation still get paid and the top brass takes a little loss, that’s called the risks of your business. CAPITALISM!! It works

  17. Trump has paid his taxes, but to other countries NOT America.

    • @fireson23 He has business all over the world therefore he pays taxes all around the world

    • @Mike Smith hahahahahah get trumps balls out of your hands and do some research. Debunked by who? No ones debunked anything. Trump hasnt released any paperwork saying its false. He only has to release two lines off of his old tax returns the amounts he paid no other info to prove it wrong and he still doesnt. He knows the reports are right. Only thing hes good at is conning dumbasses like you.

    • Are you suggesting there is a country called “America” ?
