As if we did not know it already, The New York Times is reporting that Donald J. Trump the businessman lost more money than any other individual American taxpayer from 1985 to 1994.

Donald Trump is proving, that he is a fraud, a fake businessman who could not think his way out the art of a real business deal.

According to The Times reporting, from 1985 to 1994, Trump businesses lost $1.7 billion. In this decade, Trump paid taxes in only two of the ten years. Each time his companies did so poorly that Trump only reimbursed the government the “alternative minimum tax.”

While Trump was getting away without paying any taxes, middle-class Americans were footing the bill for the standard welfare of the country.

The Times collected this tax data from Trump’s internal revenue transcripts. These transcripts follow a tax audit.

In 2016, Trump sold himself to conservative Americans as a successful businessman who had recovered from colossal failures. At least 26 years ago, he had not recovered from a series of failed businesses.

This information makes a review of Trump’s last six years of tax returns more crucial to determine if the President of the most powerful country in the world is vulnerable to being manipulated on the world stage.

It is time for Trump to produce his tax returns to clear up this cloud on his name and his presidency.

If Trump does not voluntarily produce his tax returns for a public audit, the public should consider him a financial fraud, thereby susceptible to bribes from the Saudis, Chineses, and Russians.

Americans of good have no other choice, but to get rid of the biggest loser ever, before he loses the independence of America to pay off a business debt.
