The New York Times made a startling discovery about Donald Trump’s financial track records governing the period beginning in 1984, and ending in 1994. In fact, the tax records were provided by the President himself after many years of holding firm in his stance. Get this, Donald Trump lost a whopping $1.17 billion within that 10-year span, across several fields of entrepreneurship including real estate, entertainment, and holdings in the gambling industry.

Donald Trump’s bankruptcy claims during that were brought to the public’s attention some time ago. So, understandably, those who’d like to see him impeached for some reason or another will have to look elsewhere for a “pressure point.” A billion+ in losses might be a blow to his reputation but not to his resolve, as steadfast as he is with his own rhetorical agenda.
“Mr. Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer,” the New York Times maintains. “[Trump’s] core business losses in 1990 and 1991 — more than $250 million each year — were more than double those of the nearest taxpayers in the I.R.S. information for those years.”
To make matters worse, while Donald was taking fiscal losses like no other between ’84-’94, his father Fred Trump was reporting a personal income of $50 million per year. How’s that for a friendly game of “compare and contrast.” Donald Trump has every intention of running for re-election in 2020, so help us, God.
