      The Man has been lying publicly about how rich he is since 1984 he was trying to make his way up the Forbes 400 list. They have actual proof he has been lying for years he should have never been on the Forbes 400 during the 80's and early 90's they actually banned this man from being on the list for 5 years. They have audio recording of the president acting like he is someone else calling Forbes to solidify his position on the Forbes 400 list. All of you MAGA supporters swore he was this great business man and his wealth was in the tens of billions lmao when really this dude is worth 200 250 mill. A lot more than I have at the moment ill be honest but I shoot for the stars soooo... but your man Donny goes out his way to call Forbes and act like someone else to lie about his net worth eeesh, you voted for this man. Not only that but if you don't believe this man plays phone games, In a 1990 court case Trump testified that he had used false names in phone calls to reporters. In 2016, when The Washington Post published a similar recording, Trump denied it was him. edit: don't believe me do your research it kinda makes you feel betrayed. He might turn out to be a completely different man than you thought he was www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/trump-lied-to-me-about-his-wealth-to-get-onto-the-forbes-400-here-are-the-tapes/2018/04/20/ac762b08-4287-11e8-8569-26fda6b404c7_story.html

      Oct 16: It has been reported that Trump signed Tax Returns that misrepresented the tenancy in two buildings he owns in NY. The tenancy told higher to lenders who want higher tenancy to issue loans. At the same time Trump listed lower tenancy in Tax Returns to pay lower property taxes in NY. That is business and TAX FRAUD !!!! ...drip, dip, drip.

      "hush 💰 money paid to 2 women"(hookers?)...???

      Great! Dems finally have a plan for the future: Get his tax returns. oooh, and open border, welfare for all, free college for all, and, well, you get it. There is NO plan

      If your accused of a crime why hide your alibi? Why slander and threaten informants if your innocent? We are watching the psychotic brake of a mob boss who has no experience with reality.

    7. Michael Bramlett

      Good 👍🇺🇸 So in addition to what is already documented wrongdoing those records with a high probability care going to show other criminal wrongdoings through the office of the Executive. More and more my faith in my Country is being restored. In between the resignations,whistleblowers and others saying enough is enough it may just be that America will be great again...when we take the trash out of the White House 2020 🇺🇸👍

      1. Alan Roberts

        Well said!!! (maybe you should run for office yourself...there's a spot open if Bernie Sanders stays out).

    8. Art Robledo

      Where is Pelosi's tax returns? Let's see her tax returns. That would be interesting.

    9. craigenputtock

      Good! Every rat and skunk in Congress must also disclose immediately his or her tax returns! That is the only way to drain the swamp from elected officials who have taken advantage of their position and received money from special interests, or have evaded taxes, or have (like the Pelosis) dealt in insider trading. Drain the swamp, drain the swamp, drain the swamp!

    10. Tarek Jabal

      What do prosecutors want tax returns for? To go on a fishing expedition and claim he violated some obscure tax law that not even the IRS found? Richard Nixon tried to obtain the tax records of his opponents to use it against them and a law was passsed to ban politicians from obtaining peoples' tax records. Now all of a sudden that Trump is in office federal judges say f*** the law? I say f*** the federal judges

      1. Alan Roberts

        Wait until the Democrats take office and then you can complain about them. It won't be long.

    11. Dusk Dawg

      I remember one time he mentioned he didn't want to show his taxes because "we wouldn't understand their complexity" (scams, bribes, and tax loopholes, aka "the art of the deal")

    12. Subic Warrior

      it only took obama a year and a team of lawyers to release his fake birth certificate

    13. theresa webb

      I hope his tax returns are shown it should be revealed & he hides alot but it isnt up to him.

    14. Fredrick Miller

      Lol I love watching TDS

    15. Debra C

      How is our Godless president supposed to accomplish his plan of destroying the planet with the democrats always picking on him?

      1. Alan Roberts

        Funny!!!

    16. Jim Menard

      Why don't u get your hands on all the Criminal Corrupt Democrats TAX RETURNS and see exactly what there all HIDING.

    17. Viejo Delentes

    18. Powwow Trip

      None of our allies are going to trust us anymore Donald Trump is a traitor to the United States of America he is. a Russian stooge helping Russia in Syria when is enough enough Donald Trump is destroying our country

    21. dolimi jotoo

      Pence will give Trump a blanket pardon -- he's not going to jail.

    22. SilentGhilly

      HA GOTTEM, Sad prosecutors dont even know the law..

    23. Rini Ario

      Case closed

    24. Michael Brown

      Who cares what's in his tax returns? He has the best tax attorneys ever making them squeaky clean. The left is just getting trolled yet again.

      1. Michael Brown

        @Debra C I judge integrity on job performance, not historical personal business issues. If there are or was, issues with his tax returns, it's handled between himself and the IRS. It's no way a public issue.

      2. Debra C

        Not a fan of integrity, Mike? How sad for you.

      3. dolimi jotoo

        Because you all hate my guts and expose me any chance you get

    25. None ya Biz

      If this information is perfectly legal, then why is he and his cronies so desperate to hide all his info?! The only reason to fear an investigation is if you have something to hide!

    26. musicalmegan

      Why is the federal government basically high school at this point? So much drama. Just do the job you were put there to do and if you can’t, we’ll get someone else to do it.

      1. Alan Roberts

        High school???!!! More like junior high. I remember more from Jh civics than he or the nightly PBS hour. Who even knows how many representatives are in your state government? I had to cheat and Google mine. But I got the number of senators correct. 3.

    27. richochett404

      build the wall out of sheetrock.it will be done in no time.

    28. richochett404

      just more political b s form the left.

    29. Darrell Barton

      BEST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY !

    30. Branon Fontaine

      Why are his tax returns important enough to warrant all this coverage? Oh that's right, it's just a diversionary tactic by the inbreds on the left to try and disrupt anything and everything Pres Trump is tryin to get done...you libtards are pathetic, sad, and an embarrassment to the rest of us, we're ashamed of each and every one of you...well, I'm gonna LMMFAO after Pres Trump wins re-election next November, and hope karma dishes out the excruciating pain you all deserve to suffer immediately following the phone call your libtard lackey candidate makes to Trump to concede the election....

      1. Debra C

        Wow, EVER have an independent thought, Branon?

    31. Darrell Barton

      TRUMP 2020 !

    32. Kenny Gubista

      Wow lot of misinformed libtards here that will believe anything.A judge already ruled on this.

    33. Gary Creasy

      The Supreme Court will make the final decision. I want to see Dumbo's as filed as no one really believes the a President hand writes his tax return. Come now even as stupid as Dumbo was he had doesn't think any educated individual will buy into that with nearly 90% of all filings done on computer files. Political stunt of the communist party, democratic party. If they get elected hopefully all the people lowing their jobs and income form stocks sue the democrats and their media propaganda media for funds to make them stand behind their lies which the crash of the ecomony will prove.

    34. Harry D

      What a great country we live in, worry about the president, who cares about the people

    35. DRajtify

      This garbage about tax returns again... Maddow already released them several years ago and they were literally nothing, she was flabbergasted on her show that she couldn’t find any dirt. They’re going to get similar documents again and nothing will happen, again, because there’s nothing there.

    36. Ed Chez

      he wants to save face because hes worth a fraction of what he claims

    37. Party Tomorrow

    47. Dany Fox

      Honestly what did Trump do to you ? You are ridiculous and brainwashed by the media. Congrats 👏👏👏👏

    48. steve t

      So, they cherry picked a liberal judge from NY and got a favorable ruling. Still a long way from getting his tax returns, which have already been reviewed by the IRS anyway. Just another desperate attempt at a fishing expedition by the democrats.

    49. Go Green

      I don't know why anyone would want to serve in a office at the White-house. You would have to be a martyr or a complete narcissist.

    51. Christina Ortega

      Let's see "ALL" elected official's tax returns from local, state, federal including House & Senate. Even the people running for public and presidental office. Who are these people are they honest or legal. After that, take the public's taxes, make them legal then add that to your credit score. Idiots!!!

    52. Gil Vogt
