      @Yo-yos Tenbucks To your point, anyone who stands with Trump at this point in History, stands against America and Americans. As you point out, Trump is the biggest threat to America’s freedom and rights.

      @Yo-yos Tenbucks As you point out, Trump is by far the most corrupt and criminal POTUS in American History.

      @Yo-yos Tenbucks Yo, yo-yos. Have you asked yourself why 76% of Trump supporters are aged 60+ or unemployed? Why 78% of Republicans are either High school drop outs or never attended college in any form? Are you concerned at all, that he average Trump supporter has a lower education than the average 5th grader?

      If I were you, I’d stop falling for debunked conspiracy theories, and debunked Facebook MEME’s. It shows you are either a child or someone who can be manipulated like a puppet. Apologies if you are a child. There are some on YouTube and I apologize if you are one.

    • @Yo-yos Tenbucks ahh I see your one of those high iq Trump supporters commonly called hillbilly, did you attend alligator college on swamp rd I heard they were introducing the 3 times tables next year will you be going back for a catch up?

    • Where is yoyo? Oh must have been censored, but he must have been spreading truth judging by the fascist and violent comments.

      Do you realize how intolerant this is? Can’t you see how you are being used? Why is it so hard to admit that Trump has brought peace and prosperity to the U S.

      Please wake up, you are cannon fodder for the criminal tyrants

  4. We need a hacker to get those tax returns and publish them. The fat orange hamster must have an amazing amount to hide and clearly it is under public interest to see what exactly he’s trying to hide. The president and government officials must be held at a higher standard than the average member of the public, and be completely open to criminal proceedings with mandatory life sentences and freezing if family assets and trusts.

    • Right let’s see the judges Taxes

    • Let’s see biden’s taxes

    • snoop alert Let’s see Bidens taxes? Really? 😂 Have you ever heard of the small company, Google? Lol. His returns were released MONTHS ago.

      Also to the OP, getting them the wrong way isn’t going to help anything. This needs to be done with proper process and channels.

  5. what the effing Trump is hiding in his tax returns may be there’s a big surprise in Trump tax returns.

      Many would be shocked that he’s never been a Billionaire. He’s never exceeded the ‘Billionaire’ mark. But he has exceeded the ‘Millionaire’ mark, which is an amazing feat. But debunks a few decades of Trump’s claims.

    • Jeremy Backup | October 8, 2019 at 8:00 AM | Reply

      Considering he’s filed for bankruptcy 6 times. To be a repeat Millionaire is pretty exceptional. Too bad Trump had to resort to tax evasion, fraud, money laundering, and campaign finance violations to maintain this.

    • Jeremy Backup | October 8, 2019 at 8:01 AM | Reply

      Which his taxes will likely prove. If only the House could gain access to his tax returns legally.

    • @Jeremy Backup But when one starts out with 100s of millions from daddy to begin with, you would think he could have done better with daddy’s money other than to run the majority of his ventures into the ground and go bankrupt 6 times, shafting his contractors and investors. He made his reputation by being a fraudulent blow-hard evidenced by calling Forbes and pretending to be someone else who was bragging about him, tarting himself up with models and trophy wives, buying lots of properties for which he borrowed 100s of millions of dollars and stiffed banks on and buying expensive luxury things that were basically tacky and tasteless like his trump tower penthouse. He lost a billion dollars in 5 years as well.

    • @RhondaH You know exactly what Trump wants… he wants to be PAID to “walk away” and let America simply take his name down from anything related to his Presidency… would be the “Greatest Deal Ever!”, according to him, except that free housing, three meals a day, health care, and carefully monitored visitations will all be part of it.

    “I will show my taxes after the audit.” – President Chump.

    • THE PHANTOM she has never given him nookie …..it has all been paid for….even she is a better negotiator than the orange man

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | October 8, 2019 at 12:01 PM | Reply

      @Jeremy Backup Then blame Obama’s corruption. Obama’s IRS refused to prosecute him for tax evasion.

    • So Trump is going to jerk the Democrats around until he gets Congress to put up or shut up by asking them to pass legislation that all federal officials, politicians and their families get audited every 2 years. Then we’ll see who is standing.

      He’s playing these idiots, he’s draining the swamp Don’t be surprised when he wins again.

  7. The orange goon is playing hard to get. All presidential candidates should be required by law to hand em over

    This con man will stop at nothing to get re elected. He’s been cheating and defrauding people for his entire adult life.. Just take a look at Trump university, his charities, his resorts.. All have been found to be involved in fraudulent activities!

    Hope they will kick out that crazy clown out of WH asap.

  10. The two people he whines about more than anyone showed their taxes when they were in the WH.

  11. No Time For Hate | October 8, 2019 at 3:03 AM | Reply

    OMG! Trump is right about something!!

    “A thing like this has never happened to a president before”
    Correct! Because you are the most corrupt president the United States of America has EVER had!

  12. Nothing screams “I have nothing to hide” like taking the fight to the Supreme Court to make sure no one can see what you’re hiding. 😄😄😄

  13. Trump plays the victim card…again. Aw, does it hurt and have a temperature, Donnie boyo?

  14. Nathalie Dufour | October 8, 2019 at 3:37 AM | Reply

    When we find out he doesn’t legally own what he has, it will be the joker’s final meltdown. Because his whole image is built on a lie. The sicko doesn’t have a cent , ” His ” money has been either inherited and quickly squandered, borrowed and never repaid, or stolen in all impunity. There’s your conman right there.

  15. The more the truth comes out the more Trumpturds scream REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  16. Arthur Schnapka | October 8, 2019 at 3:46 AM | Reply

    His taxes show his net worth of $15.99. Lol

  17. pat comerford | October 8, 2019 at 6:26 AM | Reply

    The federal judge made a clear and strong judgement and this gives me hope that we could bring down the “PussyAssBitch” in the White House!

  18. The likelihood that trump’s ORIGINAL tax returns are the same as those that he is prepared to submit, is doubtful. Supplying an “alternative” set of books is exactly the kind of stupid idea that he would think is smart. Incidentally, Andrea Bernstein’s “Trump Inc.” is as good an investigation into the President’s corrupt life as you could ever wish to hear. I can fully recommend it.


  20. Imagine Trump says he’s fighting corruption. What a joke
