US Elections: Donald Trump: Six key findings from the New York Times’ Trump taxes bombshell

The president pays little, faces hefty audit costs as well as loans coming due soon, and Ivanka is not in the clear

he publication of Donald Trump’s records by the New York Times is one of the biggest bombshells to hit an unprecedented 2020 election campaign already been hit by a litany of scandals, a bitter fight over a supreme court nomination and a pandemic in which 7m Americans have been infected and more than 200,000 have died, during a bungled federal response.

The president’s taxes have long been the great white whale of political reporters in America as well as prosecutors keen to find evidence of wrongdoing.   

Democrats too were eager to seize on them as a potentially game-changing stick with which to beat the Trump campaign.

    I wish the New York Times would do similar reports regarding the origin of the wealth of some of the Guyanese top politicians…..

      Confiscate their assets
      Jail dem ….hard labour !
      No if or buts

      We have MP’s here in UK doing time for
      Fiddling expenses !
      Politicians or businessmen are not above
      Law.
      Let’s have some “anti corruption” legislation
      (passed)
      written into law and rigorously enforced by poo
      Poo and courts.

      Jail a few …it will certainly send right signals
      and act as a deterrent!

    Nothing will be done to Trump and his family, because the rest of the world would make mock of Americans, but in the open this time. To avoid this, not a bloody thing would be done to Teflon Don and his gang.

    The world should place sanctions on the home of the ‘free’ and home of the ‘brave’.
