    I would bet that Donald Trump has been scrutinized by the IRS more than any person that has lived on planet Earth. If there were any type of violations they would have leaked years ago. The IRS is full of leftist pro Democrat supporters. They have had no problem abusing their positions before.

    What a dilemma.

    For years they say he gets money from Putin and is using the POTUS office to get richer.

    Now in past 2 days we find out Hunter Biden is on Putin's Payroll, and @nytimes said Trump is nearly bankrupt and in debt.

    Which is it?

    Yes, but they're not President of the United States. Higher standard and all that. Oh, and he lied about how rich he was. Trump's been lying for four years about this and that but of course now it's a big effing deal!

    Holy buckets, you need to google the properties Trump owns. It is a big ass list.

    Most of the uber rich know to invest in real estate. You don't pay taxes until you sell it. If you don't need the cash flow you just sit on it, watch your net worth go up, leverage it with new loans, and don't pay Uncle Sam a dime.

    Meanwhile, Joe Biden, who "cares" about the poor donates very little to charity. Typical liberal, he'll spend all your taxes making himself look good.

    $3,500 a year over two decades doesn't make you a philanthropist, but I wager it's more than the average giver.

    Joe Biden and his wife donated just $70,000 to charity in the two decades leading up to 2017, per their tax returns. But when their earnings skyrocketed in 2017, so did their giving. That year they handed more than $1 million, or about 9% of their income, to 26 charities—including their family’s Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children ($150,000) and the Joseph Biden Foundation ($100,000).

    Not all charity gets reported on tax forms. We don't get to deduct the money I send my MIL who is disabled because she is family. Rest assured though DJT will let you know every charitable thing he's ever done. Trump did donate to his own foundation, which then conveniently paid his personal legal debts.

    So Joe learned from the Clintons and is transferring money to his own charities?

    In other news, rich people can afford to hide their money and not pay taxes.

    Wow, I never knew that.
