    3:31 My jaw just hit the floor, and fell through the Earth. We all knew Trump is a bad businessman, but for his losses alone in one year to amount to 2 percent of all business losses in the United States, is just staggeringly shocking. No wonder why US banks won't lend him any money. He's too much of a risk even for them.

    So just how flawed must the system be if this guy could be so incredibly terrible at business and yet somehow still give off the image of being so successful?

    I always knew this was the reason Trump refuses to release his tax returns. Not because he's being bought by Russians, or Saudis, or is even evading taxes. No, because he's a loser. Nothing would destroy Trump's fragile ego more completely than if we found out the truth. His entire psyche is bound together by his self-delusion of being a great businessman. Democrats must use this to push him to the limit, expose him for the loser he is, and mock him for it every day until he shatters.

    Trump could have paid Russians for meddling, hence lost sum is that big.

    Two percent of all business losses for a year? That’s an L I never want to hold.

    First, I honestly want Trump to be impeached. Having said that, his loss if 1 billion was and still is perfectly legal. It in of itself is not an indicator of him being a terrible businessperson. If you took any real estate course or read any book on making money in properties during the '80s that is exactly what you heard: "Lose money so that loss can cover taxes from other sources." Without actually seeing his tax returns, I can only assume he took advantage of every tax loophole possible. What DOES show he is a terrible businessperson are his multiple bankruptcies, failure to pay contractors and workers, and other bad business practises this incompetent fool did.

    I think I could find a random animal in a forest, set them down on a keyboard directly linked to stock trades, let them change things up however they wanted as they walked across the keys, and still come out ahead compared to Trump.

    I doubt that one $billion is all; think about the amounts he avoided paying to contractors and lender.

    Trump might be kind of telling the truth about the billion dollar losses being losses on paper as part of a tax-dodging game, but... that's his defense?

    Love her, but till the left fully accepts the fact that Trump only won on the Racism vote things will never change. Trump can do anything and as long as he talks about Caravans he will win, because America is clearly about 50% Racist and Fascist while the other 50% is still in denial about that. American "democracy" is pretty much dead in the water, and the right could not be happier.

    Wait, at 3:01, she says "from 1985 to 1984" and no one picked up on that? It would mean Trump lost $1.17 Billion in a negative year, making him a billionaire if time worked in reverse...

    nearly 2 cents of every dollar of business loss in America in one year? This is why I'm voting for Elizabeth Warren. I know Donald shared that tale but to Ivanka? He was heavily in debt in '91, spotted a beggar & said to Marla Maples "He's worth $900 million more than I am" 8 Billion? Donald's the worst, not one of the worst.

    This woman is a Canadian, TBS is owned by a foreign investment conglomeration and her message is anti white man. She is trying to promote the multinational agendas of her employers and doesn’t have average Americans in mind. Canada is a Marxist society without a military structure or international relevance. Bee is subverting Americans independence and excellence in order to undermine the American people. Bee is a foreigner, working for a foreign corporation with multinational agendas. Bee is unAmerican and unworthy of her position in America media and politics. She should try doing something in her own worthless country.

    What? Are you telling me the person who went bankrupt 6 times, actually lost $1.6 billion. On Fox faux news they are trying to sell the idea that this makes Spanky McBoneSpurs a great businessman.

    Individual-1 and his lawyers think the Courts will take years to settle all their blocking Congress. They should look at the Watergate timeline.
    April 30, 1974: White House releases EDITED (redacted) transcripts of the Nixon tapes, but the House Judiciary Committee insists the actual (unredacted) tapes must be turned over.
    May 9, 1974: Impeachment hearings begin before the House Judiciary Committee.
    July 24, 1974: United States v. Nixon decided: Nixon is ordered to give up tapes to investigators.
    August 8, 1974: Nixon delivers his resignation speech in front of a nationally televised audience.
    It only took 85 days from the date the House Judiciary Committee asked for the White House tapes to the date the Courts ordered the White House to turn over the tapes.

    Trump raided the assets of the companies and declared them bankrupt. Democracy Now has the non-funny version of the story.
