Trump only claims one qualification for office (beyond the basic Constitutional minimum): being a successful businessman.
But he refuses to release his tax returns: the one thing that could prove his claim.
Because he is NOT a successful business man, he is a CON man.
Even his CASINO, the Taj Mahal, went bankrupt when all the casinos around it were thriving.
Anyone who can’t succeed in a business where “the house always wins” (while all his local competitors were and still are going strong) and literally failed at every legal thing he ever did in business (except money laundering), including six bankruptcies can hardly claim to be a successful business person.
Elizabeth Warren (former Harvard Law school professor of finance law who actually knows this stuff) calculated that if he had taken everything he got from Daddy (initial gift, loans that were never repaid and inheritance), not even factoring in the value of the free college education and networking connections, and just put it into a standard money-market account, he would have more wealth than what he achieved with all his supposedly amazing “artful” deals. And that was using 2016 figures BEFORE the New York Times revealed how much more his Daddy had given him throughout his life than we previously knew about.
