Trump's Old Taxes

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 9, 2019

         THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS MANAGED TO GET HOLD OF DONALD TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS FROM 35 YEARS AGO. IT SAYS THEY SHOW MASSIVE LOSES FROM HIS BUSINESS ENTERPRISES, INCLUDING CASINOS AND REAL ESTATE.

         WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CONCLUDE – AND THE TIMES DOES CONCLUDE – THAT TRUMP LIED TO VOTERS WHEN HE SAID HE WAS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN AND THAT HIS SUCCESS MEANT HE WOULD MAKE A GOOD PRESIDENT WHO WOULD TURN AMERICA’S ECONOMY AROUND.

         THESE TAX RETURNS OBTAINED BY THE TIMES ARE NOT THE ONES HOUSE DEMOCRATS HAVE DEMANDED, BUT THEY SERVE THE PURPOSE OF THE LEFT. THE BOTTOM LINE, IF YOU WILL PARDON THE PUN, IS THAT THE ECONOMY HASTURNED AROUND AND AMERICANS AREDOING BETTER THAN THEY HAVE DONE IN YEARS, PERHAPS DECADES. WAGES ARE UP, THERE ARE MORE JOBS, ESPECIALLY FOR MINORITIES, INFLATION IS STEADY AND DESPITE A RECENT BLIP IN THE STOCK MARKET, THAT INDEX HAS BEEN SETTING NEW RECORDS.

         THE TIMES FAILED ON RUSSIAN COLLUSION. NOW IT’S TRYING TO BRING DOWN THE PRESIDENT ON TAXES. I’M GUESSING THEY WILL FAIL AT THIS, TOO. I’M CAL THOMAS.
