Would Trump have won in 2016 if we knew then what we know now? We’ll never know but I don’t think so. I don’t think any one of these items would have cost him the election but cumulatively, they would have hurt him. The one with the least impact was the payouts to the two women. If Trump voters were ok with the Access Hollywood tape, this would not have changed their vote.
Here’s a list:
- Payouts to two women over alleged affairs
- Lies about campaign’s many contacts with Russians
- Dishonest about how much money he got from his family
- Turned down for loan by Deutsche Bank
- Efforts to build hotel in Moscow
- Corrupt Trump Foundation
The House should get Trump’s returns as soon as possible. His behavior toward Russia has been very odd and we need to see if he gets income from them. We also need to see if he even pays taxes – we know he has avoided them before and used shady techniques to pay less. We need to see if how much he profited from his tax cuts for rich people.
I don’t want any crap from Trump about he supports the military if he won’t pay the taxes that pay for their salaries and weapons.
If Trump didn’t want to reveal his taxes or get rid of his properties, he should not have run for president. It’s that simple.
Republicans have done nothing about Trump’s taxes or possible emoluments violations so Democrats will have to do it now.
This is wrong – just get the president’s returns. He’s just trying to muddy the waters. The only other one I would consider is the vice president’s returns.
another crooked Trump enterprise
Trump has acted like laws don’t apply to him. I hope he winds up in jail.
