Here is the message: "Trump was a business FAILURE in the BOOMING 90's. Then he became a LEACH."

Tell people, "How the hell does a guy lose nearly a billion dollars in the 90's? Those were boom times. The economy was humming in 1995. And then he goes on the government tax dole, declares this nearly billion dollar loss on his tax returns, and gets to avoid federal taxes for 18 years while the rest of us paid our taxes. He has declared bankruptcy five times, and he has stiffed people whom he owed money more times than you can imagine. And he talks about bad trade deals but happily makes his ties, shirts, and furniture in China, Mexico, and Bangladesh. Donald Trump is a FRAUD and CON MAN, and a blind person can see it."

4. Plenty of people have seen his fraud and hypocracy

My God, even the Bushes are voting for HRC. Oh he will get some votes from his redneck hate supporters, but his brand is very tarnished now. Many people will avoid is hotels and golf courses, his shirts and ties, etc. Worse than being despised, he will be ridiculed and the butt of jokes for years to come.

6. #deadbeatdon is a "genius" losing over 915 billion in a year?

#deadbeatdon loses 915 billion after shafting contractors out of payments?

#deadbeatdon policy proposals would even give him more tax deductions. Not fixing anything with the tax code.

#deadbeatdon wants to make you pay your taxes while he pays none.

#deadbeatdon lost money when the economy was rising. Doesn't sound like a genius.

#deadbeatdon berated low income people for not paying taxes. But he thinks it's great for him not to.

#deadbeatdon said it was a problem that around 50% of U.S. citizens don't pay taxes. But he paid none.

#deadbeatdon has a investment scheme lose 915 million then make the average American pay for his stupid mistakes.

9. DON'T FORGET the recession helped Trump......

Recouped some of that loss years later when the recession hit. Trump and brood gleefully fed on the misfortune of others who were destroyed by the real estate market bubble burst. Trump brags about this. If elected, our national emblem, the eagle, should be replaced by the VULTURE! Considering the way things are in this country it should be NOW.

11. Vulture capitalism is his brand.

He freeloads on the success of others and then turns around and screws honest hard-working people. Trump is the worst America has to offer.

Although leach, a verb, could also be used to describe his business practices

15. But, but he lives a great life and I will too if he is elected <-sarcasm

Some of his supporters have the intellect of a flea. My apologies to fleas if I have offended you.

I'm wondering how he had a billion to lose. If it came from daddy, was gift or income tax paid on that billion? If he made it in prior years, was income tax paid on it?

19. I think much of it was business losses from his AC casinos . . .

which says all that needs to said about his business acumen.

HE LOST MONEY RUNNING CASINOS! The odds are stacked in favor of the house, how do you lose money running a casino?

@Not a genius.

20. That's where daddy was buying chips and not cashing them in to keep him afloat.

I had forgotten about that.

Trump as a business man - failure
Trump as a husband - failure
Trump as a philanthropist - failure
Trump as a _________ - failure

Let's fill in that blank with the word candidate on November 8th.

24. so this is how it is done

So this is how you become a 'great businessman'.

1. Borrow a boatload of money from banks and investors. If you can get away with it don't use much of your own money.
2. Build some businesses but do a crappy job of running them, even in good economic times
3. Take as much money out of the businesses for yourself before they start to fail.
4. Shortchange those that do work or provide services to you and still generate almost a billion in losses.
5. File for bankruptcy.
6. Declare the losses to protect you from federal income taxes for a couple of decades even though in the end you personally have
net a great deal of money from the process.

Some would say, 'hey great idea I don't have to pay my debts and I don't have to pay taxes and I walk away with the money'. I say the person is an incompetent businessman and is just lucky that the tax codes were written to benefit his type of wealthy con man.

How about we change the rules so that if your company declares bankruptcy and has losses that can be written off on income taxes those tax right offs go to the creditors that will not get paid instead of the incompetent that caused the losses in the first place.
