PRESUMPTIVE “REPUBLICAN” NOMINEE FILES PERSONAL FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE FORM
Artist’s renderings may portray presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump with a teeny weenie … but a loud thud accompanied the release of his personal financial disclosure forms this week.
“The Donald” flat out whipped it out, people … and it was all sorts of impressive.
According to Trump’s financial “release,” he’s worth “in excess of $10 billion.” Additionally he reported income “in excess of $557 million” – not counting dividends, interest, capital gains, rents and royalties.
Trump used the occasion of filing his report with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to take a jab at independent socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont – who requested an extension in filing his report.
“I filed my (report), which I am proud to say is the largest in the history of the FEC,” Trump said. “Despite the fact that I am allowed extensions, I have again filed my report, which is 104 pages, on time. Bernie Sanders has requested, on the other hand, an extension for his small report. This is the difference between a businessman and the all talk, no action politicians that have failed the American people for far too long.”
“I have built an incredible company and have accumulated one of the greatest portfolios of real estate assets, many of which are considered to be among the finest and most iconic properties in the world,” Trump added. “This is the kind of thinking the country needs.”
Trump’s disclosure likely won’t mute calls for him to release his income tax returns.
For the record, we believe Trump should release his tax returns – even though he is not obligated to do so by law.
