Update: Trump is making progress toward becoming an official presidential candidate. Since writing this post after he announced in mid-June, he has filed his statement of candidacy, created a presidential committee and says he will file his personal finance disclosure forms -- which is the big one -- by the due date of July 22 without asking for an extension. Meanwhile, Trump assures our own Robert Costa and Philip Rucker that he's in it for the long haul.

I don't see a problem with any of those.

Trumps finances are not really that big of a secret, everyone knows about his bankruptcies.

I am surprised at the low amount of signatures needed though, even if they do have to come from democrats which isn't a problem since the dems want Trump to run. Hell, to run for city council in NY you need to get 450 signatures.

But there are professional companies that do this for you so its not that big of a deal if you have the money to pay for their services.

the problem is what we already know. It's what we don't know. Many believe that Trump has been misrepresenting his financial situation. There's also the fact that if certain things about it were released to the public, it could effect future abilities to make all those "good deals" he claims to be able to secure. Especially, if it's revealed that he's been making public statements that indicate deliberate deceit. Or something else is revealed that puts him in a compromising position with a would be contract negotiator.

I am sure that if he only is worth 7 billion instead of 9 billion that it will cost him the nomination.

We all know that is the #1 issue on voters minds right now.

Trump is not going to get the nomination. He'll be lucky if he last past the first debate. And that presuming he'll file his financials.

It is not whether he has 7 or 9 billion. The question is if Trump really wants to release his personal finances for scrutiny.

The question is...Is Trump a serious candidate or a side-show. Him releasing his financial records will be an indication of real intent.
