    HOW THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION'S FOREIGN BUSINESS TIES COULD UPEND U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY
    BY KURT EICHENWALD ON 9/14/16 AT 5:30 AM

    Trump’s global deals would make it impossible for him to conduct foreign policy in many countries without padding or depleting his wallet.
    GABE SOUZA/PORTLAND PRESS HERALD/GETTY


    If Donald Trump is elected president, will he and his family permanently sever all connections to the Trump Organization, a sprawling business empire that has spread a secretive financial web across the world? Or will Trump instead choose to be the most conflicted president in American history, one whose business interests will constantly jeopardize the security of the United States?Throughout this campaign, the Trump Organization, which pumps potentially hundreds of millions of dollars into the Trump family’s bank accounts each year, has been largely ignored. As a private enterprise, its businesses, partners and investors are hidden from public view, even though they are the very people who could be enriched by—or will further enrich—Trump and his family if he wins the presidency.

    A close examination by Newsweek of the Trump Organization, including confidential interviews with business executives and some of its international partners, reveals an enterprise with deep ties to global financiers, foreign politicians and even criminals, although there is no evidence the Trump Organization has engaged in any illegal activities. It also reveals a web of contractual entanglements that could not be just canceled. If Trump moves into the White House and his family continues to receive any benefit from the company, during or even after his presidency, almost every foreign policy decision he makes will raise serious conflicts of interest and ethical quagmires.

    Yikes! A toxicologic analysis would either confirm or deny any claims, so why not? Actually, they may have already done so, but have kept it quiet.

    Donald Trump Claims He'll 'Fix' Tax System, So What Would He Do? by BENJY SARLIN

    The latest revelations about Donald Trump's taxes are pushing questions about his business record, personal finances, and transparency back into the campaign spotlight. But they also connect to a larger policy fight: Trump is calling for a significant decrease in taxes on the wealthy while Hillary Clinton is calling for a significant increase.

    That distinction is likely to come into sharper relief after a New York Times report that Trump, by claiming $916 million in business losses in 1995, may have been able to avoid paying federal income tax for up to eighteen years.

    Trump and his campaign argued that it's proof of his financial and policy acumen. "I know our complex tax laws better than anyone who has ever run for president and am the only one who can fix them," Trump tweeted on Sunday.

    Top surrogates drove that message home on television as well: Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani said the Times story proved Trump was a "genius" in an appearance on NBC's "Meet The Press" while New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told Fox News that it showed "what an absolute mess the federal tax code is" and how Trump would overhaul it.

    So what's in Trump's tax plan? And would it clean up the "absolute mess" that Christie described?

    Trump's plan has changed over time. He released a sweeping proposal last year, then scrapped it in favor of a somewhat smaller replacement last month which lowers tax rates on both individuals and businesses.

    First off, experts say there's nothing in his plan that would affect the practice identified in the Times story that has generated the most attention -- Trump's ability to claim a massive business loss and use it to reduce his personal tax bill for an extended period.

    "Nothing about the plan would change the basic idea that if you take a loss you can carry it forward and count it against future income," Alan Cole, an economist at the Tax Foundation who has reviewed Trump's plan, said in an e-mail.

    Reducing taxable income through business losses is especially common in industries like real estate, where landlords are allowed to offset the depreciated value of their commercial property against income earned elsewhere. That too would remain largely the same.

    "The way the tax laws are structured, there are advantages to being in certain industries such as real estate or oil and gas," Jon Lieberman, an accountant and member of the New York State Society of CPAs, said. "It does not appear that would change under the Republican plan, except for certain types of business tax credits."

    The most shocking part of Donald Trump’s tax records isn’t the $916 million loss everyone’s talking about

    Despite what Donald Trump says, we really can learn a lot from his tax returns — even from the partial ones made public by The New York Times.

    The major takeaway from the three pages of Trump’s 1995 returns that the Times made public is that Trump is right when he says the system is rigged. What he doesn’t say is that it’s rigged in his favor and in the favor of people like him — and against regular people, those of us who earn money, pay income tax on it, and financially support the country in which we live.

    To keep things relatively simple, I’m telling you what I see in Trump’s returns, based on my decades of experience parsing financial filings. I will try not to get bogged down in numbers and technicalities.

    Sure, the $900 million-plus of losses reported by the New York Times — losses that could be used to offset income for a total of 18 years — are totally shocking. Legal, yes. But shocking.

    But there’s something I consider even more shocking — although it involves a much smaller number.

    By my read of the Trump tax return published by the New York Times, he would have been tax-free because of a $15,818,562 loss reported on Line 11 of the return under “Rental real estate, royalties, partnerships, S corporations, trusts, etc.” It looks to me that this loss reflects the outrageous, special tax break that real estate developers that people like Trump can get, but that the rest of us can’t.

    But, if we could get this "outrageous, special tax break", I sure that we, too, would take advantage.

    How many Americans write off mortgages? Since the properties I have owned have been self-financed, I feel ripped off that my tax dollars help subsidize you leaches!

    Re: Fox News announces candidate line-up for prime-time debate

    Of course we would all do so, and DO do so. And, as Trump himself says, the system is rigged, but would he change it for the middle class, and would he change the system to adversely affect his and that of his family's wealth?

    Same question for Hillary.
