    I would like to vote him out.
    Sooner the better.

    What a great leader the president is!
    He kills ten thousands of Americans through misinformation and inaction concerning Covid-19.
    He tanks the US economy exactly by doing so.
    He divides the USA through racism.
    He destroys the western alliance the strategic US dominance crucially relies upon.
    He furthers pollution by deregulating the economy.
    Thank you so much, Mr. president!

      @Deb Kellar
      Of course!
      Putin is already ruling the extended Russian territory. It’s not only about Alaska. You are living under his command. He’s giving his order via his henchman Donald and the GOP lawmakers he bought and/or extorted.
      And if traitor Trump is re-elected Fox News propaganda will sell you this as the greatest peace initiative in history and call it the United States of America and Russia.
      Good luck!

      no surprise when you see which other leaders he praises and call “great guy”

      With a name like Rainer Groß, I assume you are European. Even someone from around the globe, realizes what a piece of crap Trump is. Putin Trump auf den Kopf gemacht hatte. Sorry, poor Deutsche.

      @angela harper Trump increased the deficit by 19%. He added $3.812 Trillion.

    There’s no point in seeing Trump’s financial records – he’ll just say they’re fake, or a hoax, or that someone else prepared them, or that he’s never seen them.

    • He would have signed them

    • Geoff Collins | July 8, 2020 at 12:36 PM | Reply

      its his supporters that you gotta worry about, they wont care if they are signed, they will keep supporting him. there will be an excuse like hoax or something be in reality they wont care. You cant believe at this point Trump isnt a liar, its just whether they feel his actions benefit them more than someone else.

    • And all his supporters will believe him

    • I disagree, if the returns ever see the light of day, they will try to make it, about something else Mary Trump seems like a good target. I don’t think we’ll see his returns, during this presidency it’ll be dragged on.

    • Nick Penvose | July 8, 2020 at 3:56 PM | Reply

      Sharpie to the rescue. 🤣

  4. 118 days until the orange cancer and all the Trump appointed Яepublican sycophants will be rooted out and many will face criminal charges including many from the SDNY. Patience will be rewarded!

  5. His taxes will show that he’s been lying about his billionaire status. : )

      @joshua stanley That’s according to YOU. Since no such thing exists in the criminal code, your a liar and a thief…..a thief for stealing time away from the truth about how women are treated all over the 🌎

      Raymond Tucker Jr you wouldn’t understand since you have no heart

    • @Raymond Tucker Jr Wanting someone not criminally inclined is asking for perfection? I guess you’re right. Such high standards you have. I hear Sammy “The Bull” Gravano is still alive…

  7. Well you know how dirty Bret Cavanaugh is gonna vote…..

  8. The Seven Springs Estate scandal already showed Trump committed bank fraud.

      Paul C
      right, evidently the police are not as wise as you LOL

    • @Alex Hamilton What are the police going to do? Trump has already avoided jail for the campaign finance violations he’s committed with Cohen. It’s DOJ policy to not indict a sitting president. As soon as he steps out of office, it looks like there are a bunch of indictments coming his way.

    • @Kevin McNeil Aw bless. did your mommy help you write that?

    • @Six Kidlets poor little snowflake, he feels all melty

  9. SC: We run that the president has no grounds to prevent Congressional oversight committees from seeing his tax returns.

      @Andrew Mitchell Lets hope for the best.

    • Andrew Mitchell actually, with a Supreme Court decision, getting a court order to release the documents from the accountants and banks should be simple.

    • Andrew Mitchell | July 8, 2020 at 4:31 PM | Reply

      @ICEMANinHD But a judge will only give a court order to a prosecutor with grounds to ask for them. What prosecutor with the authority to pursue this will not be removed by Barr if he tries to do so?

    • Andrew Mitchell civilians can ask for a court order, as can congress. Should be easy. If the recipient refuses to abide by the order you take them to court in a civil lawsuit, or for contempt of congress. I’m pretty sure this can be done wholly outside of the DoJ.

    • GAY LIVES MATTER !!! | July 8, 2020 at 4:59 PM | Reply

      The Supreme Court is rigged. They will figure out a way to say he doesn’t have to show them.
      Roberts will most likely “die” before long so they can put another extremist like thomas and kavanaugh in there

  10. Hurry up already show him for what he really is

    • Kathy Commander | July 8, 2020 at 2:43 PM | Reply

      Oh we ALREADY know what kind of SCUM BAG he is!! Not to mention A HUGE THREAT FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    Trumps debts could make him the poorest person in America. That’s why he hides his tax returns.

    • @7 7 He has been sued for Fraud 162 times in his life.
      131 times he was found guilty.
      What kind of man acts like that ?

    • the blue penguin | July 8, 2020 at 6:17 PM | Reply

      @Don Hardcastle You’re playing silly bugger and setting up a strawman here Don. The issue isn’t that presidents or presidential candidates should automatically provide tax returns, it’s that Trump is arguing blanket presidential immunity from providing his tax records in a criminal probe (in New York), as well as denying one of the pillars of your entire system of governance, that Congressional oversight be quashed and even a relevant ctte investigation csnt see his tax returns though that is extremely pertinent to said investigation. Quit trying to muddy the waters by rebutting arguments that absolutely no one is making.

    • samuel gainey | July 8, 2020 at 6:52 PM | Reply

      @Fred A Ah yea. He paid Putin to interfere in 2016.

    • He is a multi billionaire but you cant see his tax returns

      He is a genius but you cant see his grades.

      He is incorruptible but blocks people from testifying.

      He is very religious but he wont tell you one verse of the bible.

    • Sharon Snow | July 8, 2020 at 7:30 PM | Reply

      and come January trump will be facing charges as a treasonous traitor to the USA, enriching himself off the office of the president, criminal investigations by congress, indictments, law suits, grand juries, he and his co-conspirators, will go down hard, unlike in 2019, when trump golfed 1 out of 5 days, he won’t be golfing at all!! This is why Glen Kirschner, whose blog I never miss because of his judicial experience explains the corruption trump and his lot have been up to and is, especially crooked Bill Barr!! Kirshner is telling everyone to read the editorial in Newsweek, that Barr is setting up his move to void the election if trump loses both the popular and electoral vote!! Kirshner, maintains, trump and Pence have been avidly encouraging this epidemic, deliberately causing it to rage out of control, their plan involving their stooges, to set up China to take the hit, for deliberately spreading this coronavirus it is repeatedly parroted over and over by trump and his co-conspirators in HIS Republican Party on the Hill, led by old Moscow Mitch, it is their plan to steal this election!! (No matter it was trump WHO KNEW this killer virus was coming, kept it secret, then when forced to tells, said, “DON’T WORRY BE HAPPY, CONTINUE WITH YOUR LIVES AS USUAL!!”)They haven’t been able to dirty up Joe Biden, like they did Hillary Clinton, trump is so dirty, how could they?!! They are going to blame China for sending their people over here bringing the coronavirus with them!! Maybe that is why after trump closed the borders to China he let 30,000 Chinese into the country!! This, they are going to contend, is their plan to cause trump to lose the election, interfering in the election!! These people are mad with fear, of trump losing this election, because they are culpable in his crimes. They know, if trump loses, in January, their corruption is going to ooze out like the infected boil; it is!! People better pay close attention to what trump’s niece, Mary says about him, because, I have been long time obsessed with studying trump and his mean, corrupt, card carrying member of the KKK, father, he morphed into at about the same age, donny mini-me, is morphing into him, WHAT I HAVE HEARD MARY SAY SO FAR IS TRUE, YOU HAVE TO KNOW IT, WITH THE WHOLE CORRUPT TRUMP FAMILY FIGHTING TO KEEP THEIR DIRTY SECRETS HIDDEN!!!!!

    It’s hard to watch so many cases against current president. Something is really wrong with American democracy if this is the man they chose to lead the country.

  13. Would be weird, no absurd even, if he didn’t have to give insight in his taxes. Nobody should be above the law

    • Igotasemi Yo | July 8, 2020 at 2:24 PM | Reply

      He will have to show his taxes. Period. And hopefully before November Third

    • Gofuckyourself Nicely | July 8, 2020 at 4:12 PM | Reply

      Umm…. Does that include Steven Seagal? He was Above The Law in 1988.
      Oh, BTW: Plump45’s a lying, Unitard(because “he” says “he”‘s Unique)ian, OringeUtango, spray-varnished C|_|||T.
      And a criminal, F|_|C|

    • Especially since when he was running he said time and time again he had no problems releasing them..then he was under audit…. which they can still be released..he’s just a lair all around.

      Davi Dozz are you saying that Obama’s IRS failed in their job?

    • Gofuckyourself Nicely | July 8, 2020 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      @Alex Hamilton – Ummm… Didn’t Obama release his tax returns and failed to go all the way to the Supreme Court to try to hide them and didn’t he neglect to choose corporate lickspittle Steve Munchkin to ignore statutory laws stating tax returns SHALL be released/shown when required to? I forget which part of the IRS/tax code/statute states this but Gump45’s Shaministration crony is at fault here. Oh, and didn’t Klump45 tell everyone he’d release his returns. And then did they suddenly suddenly become unavailable as they were being audited even though audit doesn’t prevent their public release? Hmm. Maybe my constitutional, legal and fiduciary laws studies were written in gold crayon, illegibly scribblysigned with a Sharpie and stuck to the sole of my shoe while I tried to understand the tricky concept of how umbrellas work?

  14. William Watts | July 8, 2020 at 12:35 PM | Reply

    He is not above the law and the congress according to the constitution says congress can look at anyone’s taxes even the presidents for oversight purposes.

    • @RaeAnn Uria you mean senate? Senate republicans voted against witnesses or admitting new evidence — senate republicans voted in favor of Trump. Senate republicans are responsible for this crisis, but I hope Trump learned his lesson. Lol

    • Fabi Grossi | July 8, 2020 at 1:50 PM | Reply

      Actually trump IS above the law so far. He has broken so many laws and rules and the consequences are: zero.

    • RaeAnn Uria | July 8, 2020 at 2:43 PM | Reply

      Jules MC trump will learn nothing!

    • It should be very clear. Both congress and NY have the legal right to investigate. And as former chief prosecutor, Glen Kirchner, pointed out …. you cannot investigate without information. In this case, Chump’s financial information. Thus you would be stripping congress and NY of their investigative legal right and duty if you prevent them from obtaining information they need to investigate. Seems like a no brainer that they should get the information. And Kirchner who has handled over 50 cases before the Supreme Court believes they will rule for congress and NY in the cases.

    • He has a prison term waiting in New York

  15. This Supreme Court is the most rt wing partisan in history. They will block the release of trump’s taxes whether it’s legal or constitutional to do so. The Supreme Court is no longer a pantheon of truth and justice. We are in the middle of a rt wing judicial coup in this country unless Dems regain the Senate. And McConnell will destroy this country if we don’t vote him out.

      I sure hope your wrong. I found this from from the NY Times. If he wins this, our Democracy is dead upon the Supreme court’s illegal rulings.
      “While there is no law requiring Trump to publicly release his tax returns, federal law of IRS Code section 6103(f) does require Trump’s (or anyone else’s) tax returns to be given to Congress if they request it”
