I've always called him a fake candidate who is likely to quit. Here's a fascinating reason why he never really even began running: to skate on what may be millions in additional tax liability.
Donald Trump has to spend more time on his real estate work than on his campaign. Has to. Why is Trump in Scotland? Hes racking up the hours. Why does Trump have so many of his events at Trump properties? Its not just so that Trump can route dollars back to his single-owner company. Its also so that every speech, fundraiser, and overnight spent in a Trump facility can be put on the scales.
Theres a minimum of 750 hours a year that a real estate professional has to invest in the area. But it doesnt matter if Trump passes that number or not.
The real squeeze is that Trump is a half-time candidate. A less than half-time candidate. One whose first thought is always for the golf course, the casino, the hotel, the apartment building, the parking garage, and somewhere way down there the people and the nation.
Trumps the 45% candidate. If that much. Do you think he told Republican voters, that theyre literally not worth his full attention?
