White Male Voters Cast Ballot In 2016 For Biggest Tax Cheat Artist In American History

October 2, 2018

You pay taxes. If you tired to cheat we both know what would happen. So with that frame of mind read an incredible piece of reporting about one of the biggest tax cheating frauds ever.

Donald Trump has long sold himself as a self-made billionaire, but a  New York Times investigation found that he received at least $413 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire, much of it through tax dodges in the 1990s.

Well, that makes Trump two things.

First, he is not a self-made man,

Second, he is a player and con artist of the kind that we all knew, in our gut, that we always was.

All those under-paid, out-of-work, aging white guys who feel cheated by ‘the system’.   Guess what?  You got played in 2016 in the biggest con game of them all.  Trump voters are SUCKERS.

The Times’s investigation, based on a vast trove of confidential tax returns and financial records, reveals that Mr. Trump received the equivalent today of at least $413 million from his father’s real estate empire, starting when he was a toddler and continuing to this day.
 
Much of this money came to Mr. Trump because he helped his parents dodge taxes. He and his siblings set up a sham corporation to disguise millions of dollars in gifts from their parents, records and interviews show. Records indicate that Mr. Trump helped his father take improper tax deductions worth millions more. He also helped formulate a strategy to undervalue his parents’ real estate holdings by hundreds of millions of dollars on tax returns, sharply reducing the tax bill when those properties were transferred to him and his siblings.
 
These maneuvers met with little resistance from the Internal Revenue Service, The Times found. The president’s parents, Fred and Mary Trump, transferred well over $1 billion in wealth to their children, which could have produced a tax bill of at least $550 million under the 55 percent tax rate then imposed on gifts and inheritances.
 
The Trumps paid a total of $52.2 million, or about 5 percent, tax records show.
And Trump continues to make money from his position in ways that no other person could have dreamed of being president.  And the white guy in (pick a state) still has to deal with his lowly wage. With no increase in sight.
God, if only there had been someone to have pointed all this out to those angry white men prior to the 2016 Election.
Yes, if only.

    That is an actual voting demographic, and one that Trump designs his message for. Plays to them. I would think a politician would want to add to his/her base but Trump proves time and again to only play to this one.
