The fence tightens on Donald Trump and he seems to care. There is a month left until the United States elections and the current president is finding himself in a lot of trouble. And all at the same time. The most talked about has been related to their accounts. The tycoon turned politician paid just $ 750 in income taxes in 2016, when he managed to prevail in the elections, and the same amount in 2017, while he was without doing it for at least a decade since 2000.
As revealed by the New York Times, Trump reached those figures because you reported more losses than income during the last twenty years. Of course, he handled the data to also “deduct taxes on what some would consider personal expenses.” These revelations have lit the fuse as the race for the White House enters its final stage. “The polls are unfavorable, but that doesn’t mean anything. We have to see how Biden handles this matter,” say sources consulted by 20minutos. Trump, for the moment, is playing down.
“Everything will be revealed. I pay a lot and pay a lot in state income taxes,” the president himself said, who has insisted again that he will make public all the details of his tax returns once the IRS completes its investigations, although being subject to the investigations of this entity does not prevent it from publishing information about it.
The polls give Joe Biden between four and six points – if the average is made – of advantage over the current president. The moderate-speaking Democrat has limited his appearances in recent weeks, but continues to focus his campaign, along with his vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, on wearing down Donald Trump. Of win, Democrats would return to the Oval Office just four years after Barack Obama left, of whom Biden was number two.
Your daughter as vice president?
Precisely the Vice Presidency is another of Trump’s open fronts. And again, it is for things of the past. His right hand is, and will be in case of revalidating victory, Mike Pence. But seen the seen, those were not the initial plans. Why? Because who for many is “the most powerful man in the world” repeatedly raised with his advisers the idea of placing his daughter Ivanka as a candidate to the Vice Presidency of the United States in the November 2016 elections, as revealed by a witness in the framework of the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.
In that list of candidates, Trump also included his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and when he pronounced the name of his daughter for the position, the response was “silence,” according to the witness himself. “She’s brilliant, she’s smart, she’s pretty and the people would love her!”, defended the president while he did not receive any gesture of approval. After weighing all the options, he chose Mike Pence.
Coney Barret’s nomination for Supreme Court has opened another war between Donald Trump and Joe Biden
Donald Trump also has another open front left. The Nomination of Justice Amy Coney Barrett as a Supreme Court Candidate has unleashed the ire of Joe Biden, who accuses the current president of wanting to end the so-called Obamacare, the health law of the last administration (with which access to Health is given to the “most vulnerable”) that Trump has always had between eyebrows. Coney Barret is the candidate to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Democrats believe that Trump’s maneuver is improper within weeks of the election. In the United States, the president is the one who chooses the judges, who must subsequently have the approval of the Senate.
The Democratic Party has pointed out in recent days the “hypocrisy” shown by Republicans during this case, because in the last year of Barack Obama’s presidency, in 2016, the Senate, with a Republican majority, blocked the appointment of Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy that arose in the Supreme Court after the death of Antonin Scalia for being an electoral year.
