Obama is far Wealthier today than before he was Prez, while Trumps Wealth has gone down, but it’s Trump who used the Presidency to get rich ?

    There are things people know going on but it seems nobody cares or do anything about it.. Obama who was worst but others do it too.. They filter many billions to their friends while in office.. This also applies to congress.. Then they get payback for the rest of their life by getting book deals they just put their name on. Also make a 20 minute speech for a half million dollars. And a lot of other kickbacks..

    Obama made his money AFTER leaving office. Trump is not nearly as shielded by the office of president as when he was actually in office. And now he’s paying for his antics. It’s why he was trying to fleece his supporters into sending him money.

    You do realize that the Obama's made the vast majority of their wealth due to book deals. tRump turned his "brand" toxic and nobody wanted to pay his exhorbitant prices to enrich a goof like him, except of course the US taxpayers that shelled out over $150 M for his golf trips to HIS clubs, that is a LOT OF MONEY for someone who said he wouldn't have time for golf, even though he golfed more than anyother president usually at taxpayers expense that went straight into his pocket. tRump could also try to write a book but first he'd have to be able to read one, I guess he could come out with a sharpie coloring book but I don't think there's a huge market for that, although to be fair part of the reason is that his followers would probably find the plot too difficult to understand. I can't wait until the tRump Presidential library is unveiled, it will be interesting to see a complete library filled with "Humpty Dumpty" and the  "Fun with **** and Jane books", of course their will be a few adult books with titles like "How to be a Dictator Wannabe for Dummies" and "How to Screw Hard Working People out of their Money for Fun and Profit". tRump is, always has been, and will always be a scum sucking leech.

    Your info is off. Obama made most of his money after he left office. Even so I’m not sure he could ever make the Forbes list. Trump lied about his wealth before being elected as a business ploy to get out of paying taxes. Most of the money he created while president doesn’t count as his personal wealth, but were profits to his corporations, like the millions we paid for him to play golf at his Florida resort. Like many businessmen he tries not to show his profits as personal income. Loopholes allow corporations to get out of paying any taxes.

    Probably because Trump had a world famous brand that he tarnished. Lol. The Trump-brand tower here was quickly renamed by investors after Trump started dissing sh!thole countries. 🤤

    Have you heard of Trump's latest shenagin/scandal is how on his online donation site prechecked "I wish to make this donation every month", later "I wish to make this donation every week", which is the opposite of the normal practice.  It was also in very small print.

    That's because most of Obama's wealth has been since leaving the presidency!

    From what I understand Trump International's revenue is way down since leaving the presidency! That's because nobody feels it's necessary to kiss his *$$ anymore!

    I'm just wondering if the Libs actually realized they were lying when they said stuff like that about Trump.
