One million? More like $400-$600 million.

"The president has long sold himself as a self-made billionaire, but a Times investigation found that he received at least $413 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire, much of it through tax dodges in the 1990s."

Before Trump fans try to refute this, perhaps they can explain what happened to Fred Trump's wealth? I doubt it was donated to charity.

“William Barr is no patsy,”
But that is EXACTLY what he is, Trump’s personal Patsy. How many times has Trump shown he won’t have anyone working for him that he feels isn’t 100% loyal to him personally.

“... destroy Barrack's legacy for good”
What is with this obsession with Obama? Let it go, it is the past. How about concentrating on the future?


That you do not want to see the breathtaking amount of corruption that was the Obama Administration is your problem not mine.

You've already seen McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Rice, Lynch, Powers, Biden - all proven liars.
Many have already been disgraced - more are coming.

You are seeing Chicago politics in action brought to Washington, DC. - influence peddling and "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours".

Bill Barr will do his best to expose it - and Americans are going to be horrified how they were hoodwinked by phony hoaxes and coup attempts, while the media let it happen.
The corruption is widespread among the CIA, DOJ, FBI, State Department - and it will be a great thing to expose all of it.

I liked Obama a lot when he was elected - but he ran the Federal Gov like the City of Chicago - where Democrats have been in power for 60
years - and corruption is rampant, but rarely called out. Unfortunately, with a change to Republican administration - the corruption won't be buried.

Too bad for you and Barrack.

“LOL, ok inflation adjusted it was $9 million... I guess like 75% of the people on this board will be billionaires in 30-40 years or so...no biggie”

Check your facts. The amount was more like $400 million. Where do you think all Fred Trump’s money went? It just evaporated?

“Sanjeev should we all be so harsh on you when PDH or one of its subsidiaries files? Or should we understand how business management works?”

When you have to back your argument with cheap shots like that it does little for your credibility. But then again, seeing who you choose as a leader I guess it is to be expected.

Its hardly a cheap shot at all. Its an acknowledgement that running businesses and producing returns is hard. And that the dorks with the thick framed glasses and 100 tab Excel sheets continuously miss the mark by throwing out these wanton claims of how easy it would be to consistently put out market equivalent returns....Thats all. Ive stated plenty of times I have a great deal of respect for Sanjeev and know him to be a capable operator. So dont miss the forest for the trees with my remark. Producing future returns is significantly harder than just half assing what past return could have been. Sometimes throwing a turd business into bankruptcy is the right move. So I'm not quite sure how "he's bankrupted companies" is anything more than a bullshit, biased, and lazy attempt to reach a not so informed conclusion. Same thing with working the tax code...Even at the very least, this shows somebody who is smart enough to maximize the usefulness of the resources they have at their disposal....

Okay. Point taken re Sanjeev. But there are lots of other examples you could have used to make your case.

But when it comes to bankruptcies and business practices, just because there are legal loopholes and legal technicalities, there is a very fine lines between that what is ethical and what is not. 

So now where did all Fred Trump’s money go if all Donald got was one million?

Did you happen to take a look at the article...

"Trump Even Inherited His Self-Made Myth
His wealth had everything to do with his father, including the fable of how it happened."
