The depreciation rules need to be changed. Each year he gets to write off massive amounts for each building he owns (and he owns a LOT of them) simply because the buildings are a year older.

I don't get to do that on my home.

See only the rich get to benefit from it cause it's usually the wealthy people that own those types of buildings.

You can not have 1% of the population own 60+ % of the wealth and expect an economy that benefits working people

And this is how we got to that point, they're paying less in taxes than middle America, they are getting away with theft

90% marginal rate on anything over 1mil period no exceptions no loopholes

Pretty sure he has full equity on all those buildings though.

I've heard this floated around quite a bit but I honestly don't think that's the case tbh. Not every quasi-positive story about Trump is a conspiracy.

Will Trump apologize to the past President for accusing him of a crime?
Nah, Obama's a grownup, he can handle dumb toddlers.

But then why only the two pages that show his income and what he paid? Kind of convenient that that's all that was leaked. And why from 11 years ago instead of something more recent?

Trump is not unique in this but he's also not excused

All must go to gulag

Do you have any evidence beyond a conspiratorial mindset and bafflement over how "convenient" this is for Trump? It would have had the same effect if it was released at any other time tbh.

Yeah I'm all for higher taxes on the rich and closing loopholes, but making 100k on the 1mil is kind of ridiculous.

Totally. That 100k could be used to help people who need it, that ****'s way too high.
