    He loves other people's money. Likely the only true statement he's uttered in September.

    A) I don't see how this makes us suckers

    B) Most of us understand that his integrated business is proof of his financial abilities.

    C) if you are trying to point out something immoral, the fact that these numbers or open to the public just shows that he the canpaign is considered in debt to his companies. He will pay them back over time rather than in a lump sum.

    Surely if he really wanted to win, he should be spending every last penny trying to make more crazy people vote for him?

    As someone looking from the other side of the pond, I'm still struggling to grasp how so many people can still think Donald Trump as the next POTUS is anything other than a very, very bad joke.

    The hatefulness of democrats towards trump supporters is incredible and hypocritical. You all have no problem calling us whatever you want, but we sneeze the wrong way and we are racist bigots.

    Pop goes another head (again). Lol. Watching & reading people's reactions has made this election hilariously entertaining.

    Well if he can't pay for lawsuits out of his foundation now, it's gotta come from somewhere ;)

    You back the guy who has insulted blacks, Mexicans, Muslims and women on a regular basis and here you are crying out for a safe space.

    So Trump is a socialist since he loves other peoples' money (and wastes it, according to the theory and an obvious extension therein)? Then again, the anti-socialists don't know the correct definition, how many socialist states are still doing well, and seem to be so biased and anti-intellectual... but they also seem to hate the current system, which hasn't changed too much for the better for them over the decades and some people call that socialism too, just of a different sort...

    It'll be better after the election no matter who wins heads will pop in unison.

    Sigh. This thread again. He has to pay his businesses fair market value as required by LAW. If he didn't, it'd be a corporate donation to his campaign, which is PROHIBITED.

    I've read a lot of criticism about Trump but "following the law" isn't one I expected.

    He could also choose other venues. Right? No one is forcing him to use Trump-owned properties or staff. But you know - branding.

    You're moving the goalposts. If he has the assets then why use other people's? And to put it into perspective, only 7% of his total expenditure has went to these places, mostly rent and utilities.

    I'm not moving goalposts. I'm simply stating that he has a choice where to have his events. He's choosing his own venues. Not illegal. But also punctuates the fact that if elected, there's really no win-win scenario for him when it comes to conflict of interest. Whatever he would decide as POTUS when it comes to things that impact his business will either be positive or negative. Regardless of intent.

    Who cares what % of his expenditure it is? That's irrelevant.

    This is exactly what I am saying. You are NO DIFFERENT. You just insult anyone who disagrees with you.

    You seem to be new here so lemme explain:

    We take pop culture cues and throw them at each other 'cause it's fun

    We've all taken sides and we demonize the other side

    We lost our joker in the last few months so we all pick on MR wife @jkcerda

    With rare exception no one take anything that goes on here seriously

    I'm sorry that you support a racist, misogynistic, Islamaphobic bigot and try to falsely equivocate it to calling Trump supporters who give money that he's using to enrich his businesses and family suckers.

    Like that time he took a giant pile of his Dad's money, and used it to make less money than if he had just put into an S&P500 fund? Anyone with 5 minutes of time would have made more money than him.

    Also, wtf is an integrated business? Integrated with his fraudulent charity?

    Hey, you forgot he bankrupted a casino while all the other casino owners in New Jersey were making money hand over fist at the time.

    I don't see his bankruptcies as proof of his financial ineptness. Rather, I see them as evidence of fraud. It is one thing to take business risks while knowing that bankruptcy protections are in place should the business fail. It is entirely another thing to plan for making use of bankruptcy and built bankruptcy into the business plan, in order to screw sub-contractors out of their earned pay. The former is what bankruptcy is designed for. Trump's signature move, the latter, is fraud.

    Oh please. People call Trump and some of his supporters bigots for things they say and do.

    No what the Clintons do with the Clinton Foundation is fraud.

    You underestimate his level of narcissism.

    It is not a joke. The rule of law in the U.S. could be history in 10 years.

    According to some right wingers, Trump IS a left wing crazy.

    LOL...oh man. I guess that is the new term for slush funds: "Integrated". Sounds fancy. Just like Trump. :D

    Let's see....helping people around the world is fraud but using charity money to buy paintings of yourself to hang in your own business is somehow not. It's Opposite Day!

    First, one candidate's crimes do not cancel out the other's crimes. Both are "bad," but one is obviously worse.

    Second, the allegations against the Clinton Foundation are not fraud - they are nepotism. There is an important difference. I have not seen any evidence that Clinton's nepotism, as wrong as it is, did any actual harm to the working class or any actual families.

    Trump's frauds actually screwed hundreds of blue-collar sub-contractors and their employees out of a lot of earned money. His fraud actually put many families into financial hardship. His fraud is responsible directly for those harms.
