    When he gains money: "It is because I am a winner". When he loses money: "It is because I am smart".

    In my country politicians lose their positions if they are insolvent. Not in the US I guess.

      In the US politicians don't lose positions.

        That’s not so. US politicians have both public, and private positions, which they lose track of all the time. If it wasn’t for transcripts of paid speeches, and Wikileaks, we’d never’ve known even that much.

    Day one of the presidency: "On to the coffers!!"

    Yet another bullshit story.

    It's called financing folks and it's a part of literally every business ever. Businesses carry debt, the bigger the business the bigger the debt.

      How does that, in any way, make this a "a bullshit story?" Conflicts of interest are okay if you're in business? Conflicts of interest matter less the bigger the dollar numbers involved? Oh, conflicts of interest are bullshit when one party holds all branches of government?

        The first sentence of the article:

        Donald Trump’s companies are almost $1.8 billion in debt to more than 150 institutions

        Which in and of itself is misleading because they include companies that Donald Trump is simply a shareholder in, and which he has no direct control over. And yet they never bother to clarify to their readers that the overwhelming majority of that debt is in the form of financing for various properties and projects and that debt of that sort is standard practice and simply part of doing business.

        And simply repeating the phrase "conflict of interest" doesn't mean there's actually a conflict of interest.

          Seems to me you stopped reading at that first sentence.
