3. Probably not...

Well, at least I hope not, because welfare goes by assets as well as income. But, that said, there are wealthy people (usually rich conservative fringe Mormons and ultra-orthodox Jews) that game the system and receive welfare fraudulently. I think this should be looked into because I wouldn't put it passed Trump to scam the system for a few extra hundred dollars.

4. He gets lower property tax on Trump Penthouse due to low income

Now we know why every year he gets a reduction on property tax for his home, available only if your adjusted gross income is below $500,000.

He's on welfare!

5. Which is why Hillary always said that lifting the cap on income for the Social Security tax

wasn't the only way to fix Social Security.

She also wanted to consider extending the Social Security tax to non-salary income. So people who made most of their money in stocks and bonds wouldn't be able to avoid the SS tax.
