So having wealth exempts one from complying with the law, eh?

An integral, nay vital aspect of Trumpism.

So little butthurt from a "progressive" who should be angry at evidence of the elites committing financial crimes instead of defending them.

LOL, looks like more than a few people need to learn to read a balance sheet, including the author of the article.

Nestled near the bottom of the article was this gem:

"Early Tuesday evening, after this article was published and days after HuffPost first sought comment, the Trump Organization, his family business that operates the resorts, responded through Chief Legal Officer Alan Garten, who said the two sets of statements are filed under different accounting and legal standards. "As a result, while both filings provide financial information, the filings each have distinct reporting requirements and standards. Thus, the two filings cannot and should not be compared," Garten wrote in an email."

Guess what...he's 100% correct.

Hopefully, after Scotland leaves the UK, they forbid entry to this undesirable.

HuffPo asked for comment and got one from the GC that highlighted the stupidity of the author of this article.

The butthurt is rampant in this thread.

They've already convicted Trump of another crime without even understanding any of it.

All over a lost election and one man's wealth.

Comrade Sheeple/Nobias/Lieburg/JordyStPete and FakeLawyer are snowflaking hard in this thread trying to protect their Orange Fuhrer. Good times!

Does anybody know what post 11 means?

An honest man wanting to defend his honor would simply reveal his tax returns. Since he won't he is considered a crook until proven differently. Who knows what he is hiding, I suspect it is much more than the details of the profit or loss at his golf course in Scotland. During the campaign he said he would reveal his tax return but now he won't and his supporters are fine with that? Really? You really are suckers.

Yes, it's obvious what it means to anyone who isn't stupid.

Imaginary time:

Bill Clinton refused to reveal his tax returns.

Barrack Obama refused to reveal his tax returns.

Republicans lose their minds!

You liars are pathetic. You know you would have gone crazy if either of them had done half of what Trump has done. You aren't fooling anyone. Please cancel your citizenship because you are not Americans any more.
