Donald Trump's proposed tax plan could benefit Trump
www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-41423159

"'I'm doing the right thing, and it's not good for me, believe me." - Donald Trump on his tax plan in Indianapolis on Wednesday.
"Unpacking Donald Trump's latest tax proposal is a bit of a challenge, but it's fairly safe to say that it would, in fact, be quite good for him."

(Sorry if I'm repeating what was on the previous thread. I'm losing track. It's kinda... swampy round here.)

Very Swampy but thanks for the new thread. smile

What is the MNHQ holding post thing?

NYT on the detail of Trump's winnings under the new tax reforms.

I'm working me way through the Pell Center report mentioned on the last thread.

Don't know how I missed this BBC story in April that it cites:
Marine Le Pen: Who's funding France's far right?
www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-39478066

Think of someone, in politics, who's had difficulty getting loans. Someone who then got financial help from a Russian or a Putin-linked bank. Someone who is economical with the truth about their connections with Russia - claimed they'd never met Putin but their dad keeps giving shit away.

Funny how much Marine Le Pen has in common with La Famille Trump.

WTF. Trump admin lawyers are demanding private account info from Facebook users who are critical of Trump's policies

DOJ demands Facebook information from 'anti-administration activists'

The New York State Board of Elections has said it was the party which screwed up and put Jared Kushner as female on the electoral roll. So That's one thing he's off the hook for.

Now just those multiple errors with the forms about meeting Russians to worry about...

I saw that Pain (about Trump lawyers demanding access to private Facebook account information). I must admit I had a bit of a moment where I thought, shite, did I like that particular Facebook page? (I didn’t.) I tend to keep the political stuff off Facebook. But why should I have to worry? It’s wrong.

Mayor of San Juan says that, actually, Mr Trump, your aid efforts are not near enough. Not when people are “drinking from creeks”.

Did you ever have a dream where you were the big boss and everyone was looking at you and you came out with some lame attempt at a joke and they all looked disgusted and it was all disastrous?

That's Trump's life now. I almost feel sorry for him.
