Donald Trump‘s tax returns show that he lost so much money in the mid-1980s to 1990s that he paid no income tax for eight out of 10 years during that period, according to a new report.
The income tax records were obtained by The New York Times, and represent the most detailed look into the president’s personal taxes yet, after years in which Mr Trump had sought to keep the documents private.
Between 1985 and 1994, the documents show, Mr Trump lost tens of millions of dollars a year, with total losses adding up to $1.17bn for the decade.
According to The New York Times report on the taxes, Mr Trump’s losses mostly came from his business holdings in casinos, hotels, and retail apartment space in his buildings. And, the paper reports, the sheer amount of losses during that time show that he lost more money than almost any other American taxpayer during that time, according to a comparison of his taxes to an annual comparison of high income earners compiled by the Internal Revenue Service.

Gun control advocates are hoping and praying the President will declare a national emergency to get funding for the Mexican wall. The folks who are pushing for tighter restrictions on hand-guns and gun access believe that a national emergency declaration by the President will set a precedent that will enable a future Democrat President to use the national emergency declaration as a means to bypass Congress on gun control measures.
While the President wants to build his wall – using a national emergency declaration could truly open Pandora’s box for the NRA and gun rights supporters.
Just imagine this scenario not so distant in the country’s future…a Democrat is elected to the White House, there is a school-yard massacre again and the President declares a national emergency implementing an aggressive gun-control policy regarding private sales, background checks and specific equipment that is currently legal and available in today’s market.
Could you imagine the uproar coming from gun owners and advocates? (Read more)
A predominately Black basketball team is refusing to play today — on MLK Day — due to entitled teenagers displaying a “Trump 2020: Keep America Great!” flag. The coach for the team is now speaking out.
Michael Walker coaches Minneapolis Roosevelt High School and wrote on Facebook, “I coach a predominantly black inner city high school team. We go out to a rural area in Jordan, MN and this is there. Please explain how and why this is appropriate at a high school basketball game?” See below:

The Gate Keeper response: Gone from gettting gooder and gooder to getting damn gooder and gooder!
The revelation is contained in a lengthy and highly detailed Wall Street Journal article about Trump’s alleged involvement in the hush money payoffs.
President Donald Trump personally asked the publisher of the National Enquirer, his longtime friend David Pecker, to help his presidential campaign by silencing women who might come forward with details of his sexual relationships with them, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.
According to the Journal, then-candidate Trump asked Pecker during an August 2015 meeting at Trump Tower, “What can you do to help my campaign?” (Read more)
(CNN)Two massive clouds that have been hanging over Donald Trump’s presidency for months broke open almost simultaneously on Tuesday afternoon — and poured rain all over the President.
Between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern time, two narratives — both disastrously bad for Trump — emerged:
1. Paul Manafort, the man who spent five critical months leading Trump’s campaign in 2016, was found guilty of eight financial crimes. On the 10 other charges brought against Manafort, the jury couldn’t reach a unanimous conclusion and the presiding judge declared a mistrial on those counts.
2. Longtime Trump personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen agreed to a plea deal with the Southern District of New York in which he admitted guilt on eight charges and acknowledged that he had discussed or made hush payments to two women alleging affairs with Trump in order to keep damaging information from becoming public, at the direction of and in coordination with a candidate for federal office. That candidate, although Cohen didn’t name him, is obviously Donald Trump. (Read more)
