    The date of the article is this year so it includes COVID 19 in the mix. As Trump has Hotels and Restaurants etc it isn't surprising that COVID has slowed business considerably especially in NYC. Golf courses during the play seasons are probably great for Covid as distancing and air circulation can be maintained easily.

    How is it possible that he reported anything at all besides his donated salary during his presidency? I mean, didn't he divest from his business? What was all this about?

    It's a grand conspiracy to make him look bad by photoshopping "President Elect" into old photos of him as I was told here that President Biden invented the office of the president elect.

    Donald Trump doesn't need any help to look bad. He's more than qualified to do that all on his own.

    It's customary to come out of government service much wealthier than you were going in.

    Based on book deals, speaking engagements and academia positions. Not on selling golf resort memberships, selling cheap bottled water at exorbitant prices, and charging secret service members to drive around in golf carts.

    We'll have to see the numbers. Perhaps his tax records will be made public. I think he took a bath during his presidency, and may do so for awhile.

    The thing about wealth is that when you have so much it generates more wealth without much effort. "Them that has, gets."

    This isn't really true for the Presidency. What is true, they do tend to make money once they are no longer president based on speeches they get paid for giving, book deals, etc.

    Of course, this is also a reason for divesting yourself from your business while President. His businesses suffered because of people refusing to use them to express their displeasure in his Presidency. I'm guessing if Obama had owned a hotel brand, he would have had similar issues, as Republicans refused to stay at any of his hotels.

    I should hope so. His total wealth was reduced by over 2 billion while he attended to the business of being president.

    Not sure what that means, but he returned his salary to the treasury. Four years of that would be more than a million dollars. What other president do you know who did this?

    Well no, he also does a good bit of suing and always has, not so much to recover damages as to inflict them (as he has bragged).
