Trump says he’s lost ‘a fortune’ since running for president in 2016

President Trump revealed on Saturday that he and his family have suffered enormous economic losses since leaving behind his successful real estate business to run for President in 2016.

“Believe me. I didn’t do it for me,” Trump told supporters at a rally in Janesville, Wisconsin. “I lost a fortune. This job has cost me billions and billions of dollars.”

“I would say it cost me two, three, maybe more billion dollars,” the president added, explaining that he didn’t want to rely on donors to fund his campaign — leading to great personal loss.

“Nobody could ever raise money like me, I just don’t want to do it,” Trump said. “Because it puts us all … meaning us, I did this for us, and not for me.”

After Trump’s tax returns were leaked in late September, the president endured relentless mockery for what the New York Times characterized as “chronic losses.”

Dozens of blue checks on Twitter derided his business acumen, claiming that he’s deeply in debt and that the losses prove that he’s a fraud.

In addition to spending billions of his personal fortune to run for president, Trump reminded the crowd — and Democrats — that despite their claims that he is using the office to enrich himself, Trump has donated his presidential salary every quarter to a different government agency.

Trump told the crowd on Saturday, however, “Billions I lost, and that’s ok, because I’m doing something that’s the most important thing I’ve ever done.”

Thank you President Trump for all you have done for us. You have given up so much and endured so much crap from the evil democrats. I myself did not realize how evil and corrupt they are. I pray for you each and every day and I thank God for putting you in office. I pray earnestly for a second term for you. Americans love you and we need you more than you know. Keep up the fight and may God continue to bless you, your family and your loyal administration.

This is why he going to win again. Biden hasn’t had one accomplished thing that Biden has done. The people know what Trump will do he’s kept every Promise and he’ll do the same Obama was a disaster it helped the unfortunate but slammed everyone else. That plan for me tripled and I’m not alone that is why Trump won last time.

He is a very special man, and just what this country needed, and always will need. The rest are greedy politicians, while Trump is really trying to drain the swamp. He has done more for this country than any president in history. My hat is off to him!! It isn’t about the money for him?? What DOES he have to gain?? It is the love of our country, who, with the exception of the silent majority, has ran him down to the point of making me physically ill. GOD BLESS YOU, PRESIDENT TRUMP!!! With OUR GOD I see a RED WAVE come Nov. 3rd!!!

The persecution that our President has endured is like nothing I have ever seen. It reminds me of what Jesus endured to save us all.

You have accomplished so much for the American people, even though you have had to fight the Democrats and the Washington establishment the entire time you have been up there. There is no telling what you could have done if you had had the least bit of cooperation from Congress, and I include some Republicans as well as the Democrats and Independents. You have upset their applecart and they can never forgive you for that, regardless of the damage it does to America and the citizens of this country. I, too, pray for you daily

I don’t know how others feel about this article, all I know is that Donald Trump has not taken a salary for his time as President. It’s a proven fact that he donates his salary to the military. Now, why don’t we discuss how Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Bloomberg and other crooked Democrats came to be filthy rich? How many other politicians ( Democrat or Republican ) do/did not accept a salary and work ( if they work at all ) for free? It’s very easy to criticize someone just because you don’t like them but, it’s not right to put them down for what they are trying to do for our country!

i want American people to wake up! Trump has done a lot of good things for our country, that’s why democrats they didn’t like him to win. If Biden win, we will lost our country forever. Just think about that. Biden wins. China wins. We will have Chinese businesses and a lot of them will be in the white house; congress, senators, generals and the like. they’ll turn our country into a communist one. It’s scary. They will run this country and democrats will be happy that they’ll be getting their shares from their businesses…They are Unamerican. they do not love our country. Trump/Pence 2020!!!

President Trump, a most phenomenal man who has given up so much to help the people of this country – we need to make absolutely Sure he is re-elected and let him continue to fix the mess the left has placed us all in. God Bless President Trump, The First Lady and the entire Trump family for giving up their fine lifestyle so this country has a chance for continued freedom and economic success. I Do hope someday to see his son as President as well. I have no doubt that President Trump will go down in history as the Best President this country has ever had and I remember each one since I was 10 .. with President Kennedy – -I honestly say I do not remember Eisenhower even though I was a kid – We Need to RE-ELECT President Trump On Nov 3rd 2020 – we need him to stay in office!

Has anyone asked Biden where his quarterly donation of his salary for four years will go? No, they haven’t! Has anyone asked why Biden thinks we should support the illegals who have come in droves to our country? No they haven’t? Has anyone asked Biden if we want our money to go to support illegals? No they haven’t! We don’t need to ask President Trump about those things. We already see his answers. President Trump is the best that has ever happened to us! We are in a far better place than we were 4 years or more ago. TRUMP 2020. Another 4 years, please!

President Trump remains a human being. Fallible in every way, but here’s the difference. God knew which man to elect for the most critical elections in America’s history-the 2020 one. If President Trump, whom had endured the most vile vicious attack of all the President’s I remember in my generation. If did not have the courage and boldness to hit the the CORRUPTED DEMOCRAT RATS HARD IN EVERY WAY he could, they would not be courteous in any manner whatsoever. The are Demon spawned. Godless. LOSERS. Haters. Conniving schemes. I PRAY that every American Patriot will hit the voter path with in-person voting in the largest turnout EVER and smash all hopes of DemoncRats ever getting ascendancy into any Presidential; Legal, or Judicial positions for the next 3 three or four terms. Of America falls the whole world dies. Praying with you all to make the correct chouce

Yesterday on the way to the car wash in the small town of Turlock, Ca. I got caught up in a never before seen grid- lock caused by an extremely long convoy of vehicles flying Trump 2020 flags, American flags and the fine blue line flags. This was a very large enthusiastic group of folks that appeared to be in the thirty’s to fifties age group. I suppose they were a part of the silent majority that has not yet been able to take the time to vote. I believe that when their vote is counted, if not trashed somehow it will cause a great surge in votes for President Trump. What puzzles me is after seeing so many pathetic Biden rallies and campaign ads on TV that Biden is leading in votes. It is very hard for me to believe that there are enough people in this country stupid enough to elect Biden and Harris. If there is, God help us for we are lost.

Notice how the media and Democrats NEVER mention Trump giving up his salary. They don’t ever mention all the good Trump has done and when confronted, they just change the subject. Let’s NOT let them get away with this! They are EVIL and this is really a spiritual battle between good and bad! They are incapable of knowing the EVIL they are involved in! I’ve never seen anything like this in my life and I’m 71 yrs. old!

We prayed to God to put Jesus back in our lives. We prayed to let our flag proudly fly again. My husband developed Stage 4 Merkel Cell cancer, I prayed to God to save him. You signed the Executive order for “The Right To Choose Act.”. He signed the papers for Experimental Immune Therapy, he is still with me. That was 3 years ago and he is still with me. God Bless You!

You are the perfect example of the idiots who can’t see the light! How is Trump responsible for Covid-19?!!! It was sent to us as a gift from Joe’s best friend, Xi Jinping , and then he tried to make the world believe the US started this VIRUS!!! The left is so deranged with HATRED they can;t think straight! Yes, there have been many deaths here in the US but in proportion to other countries by size that number is not out of line. Just keep trying to twist the facts! The left is the party that will be eliminating SS and medicare! NOT TRUMP! They will also eliminate the elector college limiting us to a one party country forever! Never a choicer again! Joe has told us he is going to tax our corporations as they were taxed when they left our country under Obama . . . another recession, and no jobs that means everything will be too expensive for those left behind. . . No choice, No jobs, No food ! Does that sound like Venezuela to you?! OH! I’m sorry! It truly isn’t your fault the reason the dems exist is because they take anything the Fake news throws at them as FACT!!! and repeat it verbatim. No thinking it through! Dems can think from point A to point A and their leaders depend on that! Now go play with that shiny object in the corner and let the people who can THINK help solve the problems rather than BE THE PROBLEM.

If Biden is elected, taxpayers will have to pay somewhere between 65 and 78 hundred dollars a year extra in taxes, since Biden has already said, he’s raising taxes for the government to get 4 trillion dollars in 10 years.

Of course this doesn’t include Hunter or his corrupt cash payments, they get from foreign governments, to line their pockets!
While Hunter and Joe are selling out to China, Ukraine and Russia, Trump gives his Presidential salary to charities!

He does lose millions every year, being President!

He rips off the government by staying at his properties and charging the Secret Service many more time what other people pay. He has made enough that would pay his salary 100’s of times over.
