Everyone has known this forever. The New York newspapers covered it breathlessly at the time. Trump wrote a book about the turmoil (The Art of the Comeback) and incorporated it into his public image. In the first episode of The Apprentice, Trump said: "About 13 years ago, I was seriously in trouble. I was billions of dollars in debt." So... yeah. None of this was really hidden
Because he was probably behind the leak. This way Congress doesn’t win if they are successful getting his tax returns and if he paid any tax it’s an improvement and if continued not to pay any it’s nothing new. He already said during his campaign his goal as a businessman is to pay as little tax as possible, and most smart business men do exactly that.
He also told us that if he were elected, he would release his tax returns. Of course, he now says he is under audit and has been for the past 2+ years. I know lying is nothing new and cheering his lies is nothing new, either. His current returns matter so we can see how much Russia paid to install this puppet.
This still proves he knows nothing about business other than he can screw over others and make them believe they are getting something in return.
