    Trump Records Shed New Light on Chinese Business Pursuits
    As he raises questions about his opponent’s standing with China, President Trump’s taxes reveal details about his own activities there, including a previously unknown bank account.

    "........
    But Mr. Trump’s own business history is filled with overseas financial deals, and some have involved the Chinese state. He spent a decade unsuccessfully pursuing projects in China, operating an office there during his first run for president and forging a partnership with a major government-controlled company.

    And it turns out that China is one of only three foreign nations — the others are Britain and Ireland — where Mr. Trump maintains a bank account, according to an analysis of the president’s tax records, which were obtained by The New York Times. The foreign accounts do not show up on Mr. Trump’s public financial disclosures, where he must list personal assets, because they are held under corporate names. The identities of the financial institutions are not clear........."

    The Chinese account is controlled by Trump International Hotels Management L.L.C., which the tax records show paid $188,561 in taxes in China while pursuing licensing deals there from 2013 to 2015.

    The tax records do not include details on how much money may have passed through the overseas accounts, though the....."
    Trump Records Shed New Light on Chinese Business Pursuits


    This election shows Trump is failing in his attempt to make the United States of America, Inc.
    a division of Trump, Inc.

    If I owned any interests in Trump, Inc. I would consider selling now before ?????

    I agree with you, however alot of the extreme right folks are just as harmful. They just don't have the greasy smooth abilities of persuasion that the liberals have with their (fortunately eroding) control of the news-political complex.

    As opposed to Donald Trump, who has never had any business dealings with China?

    Trump maintains bank account in China, says NY Times

    THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN DEBUNKED. Anyone that has ever done business in another
    country, and especially a socialist or communist one, will understand that they require
    you to open a bank account locally and to exchange a certain amount of their crappy
    money for yours, from time to time. And yes, contrary to Democrats opinions, who again,
    love to tax the rich, envy the rich, talk about the rich, have never earned a dime from their
    own business, have never taken personal risks and won, have never had to come up with
    a new or better idea, in the majority, and actually only suck on the government teat
    as a politician or leftist college professor, businessmen can and do go worldwide to earn
    money to give out in taxes. No money, no taxes, even Biden can understand that much.
    You also have to pay some local taxes, and bribes, and take people to lunch, etc., just
    as you do in America. And yes, we pay bribes in America also, we just don't advertise
    it and we call it something else.

    THE BIG DIFFERENCE HERE is that Trump had
    accounts in China as a private citizen and businessmanl and BIDEN was receiving
    money for selling out the American people and using his influence for pay. And that
    my friends is the textbook example of a traitor. Influence peddling is a form of prostitution after all.
    That plus his kids and perhaps his own liking for young slave Chinese sex girls, and what do you
    have? The next Socialist president? I hope not.
    Yes Trump liked the women (all over 18), but again he was not a government official subject to
    blackmail like Biden is and was; he only had to use his lawyers to pay them off. Big difference.
    Was it right and proper? No, of course not. But it was not treachery and treason like Biden's was.

    If you continue to get your news from the New York Times, you are going to
    be misinformed, normally, and misled frequently.

    Beware Trump supporters: Kamala Harris and the Democrats have a list, and that's a fact

    This past week I made a mistake. I was careless and retweeted something before I fact-checked it. I shouldn’t have. I was lax, I was lazy and what I posted turned out to be fake news.

    Here’s my post.
    This quote is apparently not accurate. It seems to have originated in a satirical piece written in 2019.

    But here’s the thing, this “statement” from Ms. Harris is so close to the numerous verified comments from other key players in the Democratic Party and their corresponding “useful idiots” in the media (but I repeat myself) that, at first blush, it didn’t even strike me as odd or out of order.

    Comments such as the following:

    “Any Republican now promoting rejection of an election or calling not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position, or be accepted into ‘polite’ society. We have a list.” — Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post

    “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future? I foresee decent probability of many deleted tweets, writings, photos …” — Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, U.S. Congress

    “Yes, we are … Every Administration staffer, campaign staffer, bundler, lawyer, who represented them — everyone.” — Michael Simon, The Trump Accountability Project

    “When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would … name every official, politician, executive and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.” — Robert Reich, former Labor Department Secretary to President Clinton and adviser to President Obama

    “The most humane and reasonable way to deal with all these people, if we survive this, is some kind of truth and reconciliation commission.” — Chris Hayes, MSNBC host

    “So, let us brace ourselves … the terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed, must be devoured … and then he, and his enablers, and his supporters, and his collaborators … must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society … [T]he fight is not just to win an election, but to win it by enough to chase — at least for a moment — Trump and the maggots off the stage and then try to clean up what they left, Remember… the fight does not end November 3, but in many ways, will only begin that day.” — Keith Olbermann, former ESPN and MSNBC commentator

    “We should keep and publish a list of everyone who assists Trump’s frivolous and dangerous attacks on the election. Name and shame forever.” — Evan McMullin, former CIA operative and 2016 independent candidate for the presidency of the United States

    “Me-first capitalists … are going to be the first people lined up against the wall and shot in the revolution. I’ll happily provide video commentary.” — Dick Costolo, former CEO of Twitter

    “I think killing the little Romanov children was justified [for the sake of the revolution].” — Bhaskar Sunkara, founder of Jacobin magazine, the top publication among democratic socialists

    Or this from Joe Biden himself who, in a 2018 speech to the Human Rights Campaign, described conservative Christians and Jews who live by the 4,000-year-old moral teachings of the Bible as “virulent people, some of them the dregs of society …”

    The “quote” I posted concerning Kamala Harris may not have been accurate. But all these other comments are. And here’s something else that is entirely true, Sen. Harris’ silence.

    Kamala Harris has said nothing to condemn any of these comments. She has said nothing about Jennifer Rubin’s, Keith Olbermann’s, Chris Hayes’ and Robert Reich’s thirst for pay-back. She has said nothing about the implied Bolshevik violence of Bhaskar Sunkara and Dick Costolo. She has said nothing about the spooky Orwellian lunacy of Evan McMullin. She has said nothing to condemn the derogation of Judeo-Christian people by her own “boss.” Nothing. Crickets. Total silence.

    Now, if you’re saying to yourself, “Why should I care? She’s only the running mate. The VP doesn’t matter,” consider this: Should President Trump’s legal challenges of election malfeasance in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Utah fail, and should Joe Biden actually be inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2021, it won’t take Mr. Biden’s own party five minutes to declare him unfit to serve by virtue of dementia and, thereby, declare Kamala Harris the next president of the United States.

    And when this happens, just remember she “has a list.”

    And, that, my friends, isn’t fake news. That’s a fact.

    All of this added together should be sufficient for the Supreme Court to throw all of it out and let the
    Congress decide, which is fine by me.

    I'm glad they are counting his popular vote lead - it lets us know just how many fake votes there are out there.

    So how do you actually know that Trump wins the vote when counted correctly? Is it because you feel it in your waters? Because of the truthiness of the statement "Biden stole the election"?

    Even a 'correct' count is somewhat dubiously in favour of the Republican party, because for years they have been rigging the system to disenfranchise groups who do not vote Republican, due to the tide of immigration into the US over the years. The demographic changes in the US mean that the Republican party cannot win an honest vote, and that situation gets worse for them with every new election.
