    I have no idea if he would have gotten those deals or not and neither do you so you should quit accusing someone of something before you have the facts.

    That is childish and immature.

    And what are you going to find in his tax returns that would possibly be devastating?

    He isn't worth as much as he claims.....OOOOOhhhhhhhhh

    He had business dealings with foreign governments......we already know this.

    He paid 18% instead of 37%......stop the fucking clock....that is so corrupt.

    lol

    Was the shooting justified or do you just automatically assume his guilt? I am thinking the latter would be your choice.

    Please feel free to list the great damage Trump has caused in 4 months.
    Dude he has a hotel in Turkey - which why he called a dictator to congratulate him on his win. He even said in an interview before he was elected it was a conflict of interest.

    So you think your going to "score" something but insulting my intelligence? While you will support MM no matter what? The irony...

    Don't confuse with dispelling liberal myths with support for Mr. Trump.

    There are many valid issues I am sure you and I would agree on but when you keep harping on crap like this you force my hand.

    And I would not insult your intelligence.

    You are very knowledgeable, just a bit misguided.

    We would know from his tax returns exactly who he owes. He has denied business ties to Russia yet his son said they do tones of business in Russia in a previous interview. Trump is a liar if nothing else it will prove he is a liar about this one very important fact. For all you know China has forgiven a loan or Russia has. That can't be explained away as a co-incidence. Plus we don't know how tinkering with the tax code could help him out personally. He wants us to let him do that next without knowing what's in it for him. NO WAY!.

    Just keep doubling down - make you look foolish...again..

    Trump has now discontinued an Obama-era policy of making public White House visitor logs. That means the public will be kept in the dark about corporate executive and lobbyist visits to the White House, shielding from public view basic information, such as names and the frequency and dates of their White House meetings. That’s crucial information for the press and for good government watchdogs, who use this information to put together pieces of a puzzle when, for example, when there is quid pro quo and/or corporate interests benefit from policy or legislation.

    The New York Times and Pro Publica report that the Trump administration is even more prone than previous administrations to the conflicts of interest created by the revolving door between government service and corporate lobbying. That’s because the Trump administration has weakened ethics rules, including eliminating one barring lobbyists from serving in an agency they had lobbied in the past two years. What’s more, Trump’s “appointees are also far wealthier and have more complex financial holdings and private-sector ties than officials hired at the start of the Obama administration,” according to the Times. Even more alarming, the report details that the administration is issuing secret waivers from what ethics rules it does have in place. That leaves former executives and lobbyists, now at high levels of federal agencies or White House staff, in charge of regulations that they previously lobbied to dismantle, or in a position to make decisions about government procurement of products for which they had recently lobbied to secure government funding.

    The Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin reports that Trump has invited titans of industry to rewrite — and even eviscerate — regulations protecting the environment and worker safety. As U.S. Chamber of Commerce senior vice president Neil Bradley told Eilperin, industry interests now expect the Trump administration to provide relief “from a regulatory onslaught that occurred, principally, during the prior administration,” and a process is underway throughout the federal government to recast a variety of federal regulations in keeping with corporate lobbyists’ wishlists.

    Meanwhile, Trump is already profiting from his 2020 reelection effort, as his campaign continues to spend money at Trump-owned businesses, the Wall Street Journal reports. In the first quarter of 2017, Trump hotels, golf courses, and restaurants were paid nearly half a million dollars, campaign finance disclosures reveal. Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign manager now in the middle of the investigation into the campaign-Russia collusion, has reportedly been meeting with Chinese billionaires eager to get a piece of any Trump infrastructure-building projects, the Financial Times reports. Manafort met with Yan Jiehe, the founder of construction giant Pacific Construction Group, who boasted that he is “definitely the most ideal privately owned unit to invest in construction.”

    And these are just in the last 3 days

    LOL - so actual facts are now "liberal" myths?

    Let's face it, you are unwilling to see what most rational people see right before their eyes.

    Do you remember the record number of lobbyists visiting Obama's White House?

    Almost all of them democrat?

    Now imagine if you guys get a hold of his list and it even is half of what Obama had, you guys will go crazy with your fake news stories.

    I would probably keep it away from you all also.

    You have no actual facts.

    Like your OP you are claiming facts based off of assumptions. You are calling the man corrupt based on conspiracies that are as of yet unproven.

    Bring us some hard facts and I will be the first to jump in line with you.

    So in other words, you have nothing.

    Did the Obama lobbyist's try to destroy the very agencies they were working in? NO.

    And I'm pretty sure this is record for lies - but then again he is BLOTUS

    In 84 days as president, @realDonaldTrump has made 394 false or misleading claims. Full list here:

    But yeah, nice to see your trying to divert from his massive conflicts of interest and how he profiting in a big way by being in the WH. Along with other family members of course.
