Perhaps Trump is actually the King of the Swamp:

Study Finds Trump Tax Cuts Failed to Do Anything But Give Rich People Money

https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/05/study-trump-tax-cuts-failed-growth-investment.html

Quote
advocates of the tax cuts insisted it wasn’t about letting the makers keep their hard-earned money rather than handing it over to the takers. It was about incentivizing business to repatriate funds and ramp up its investments, thereby increasing growth and wages.

The Congressional Research Service, a kind of in-house think tank for Congress, has a new paper analyzing the effects of the Trump tax cuts. It finds that none of those secondary effects have materialized. Growth has not increased above the pre-tax-cut trend. Neither have wages. After a brief and much smaller than expected bump, repatriated corporate cash from abroad has leveled off.

Why don’t they just put a lien on this? Shouldn’t be too hard, if true.

Put a lien on what, DT's campaign?

Would be pretty funny if they held DT's name off the Texas ballot  ;D ;D

Jeez, not like Trump to stiff someone for money. Oh wait, there were how many bankruptcies ....

Not much wonder no recognized North American bank would finance him.
