    Too many. Obama also deported illegals and banned travel. Trump's MO is take things Obama did and make them much worse. Having said that, prepare for large-scale tapps.

    Finally we get a clear explanation-

    When he said Obama wiretapped him he didn't mean Obama and he didn't mean wiretapping.

    No argument there. I just find the issue of lost insured an irrelevant criticism when the media has defended Obamacare despite the lost insurance rampant within it.

    "You are absolutely correct. I think that the activities that have occurred and the thing that we’re seeing indicate a scandal on an order of magnitude greater than anything that’s occurred in the 20th century. What’s occurring now is as close to Benedict Arnold as I think we’re ever going to get in American history. It had better be because the only alternative to what we’re seeing with this information is, if it’s not espionage, then it will be the largest financial scandal in American history.

    One would think that someone would have taken Trump’s associates aside and told them, about the ambassador and others, “These guys are Russian spies using diplomatic status as cover?” Did they not understand that or did they just ignore it?

    You would think that the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Michael Flynn — who had his own coterie of spies, by the way — would know that. But what would override that? Only one of two things would override that. This incredible belief that you give me a boatload of money and I get a boatload of money. Then you get these incredible, unbelievable returns promised to you, and you bring in more people. That’s what we’re seeing here, in this whole crew . . . and I refer to them in my book as “the Kremlin crew” . . . in that they saw relationships with Russia and the extractive energy industries as an ATM that would make them madly wealthy beyond anything if they controlled the levers of government.

    The only other way to explain it is that they ideologically bought into [the idea] that Vladimir Putin is the greatest man on Earth and that the Russian antidemocratic system and autocracy is their way of life. I can’t believe that. I think they wanted to win at all costs, and at the end of “win at all costs,” whether that meant cooperating with Russia or working with them, there was the promise of outrageous quantities of money."

    The Latest: Trump releases tax info ahead of TV report

    WASHINGTON — The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times EDT):

    8:35 p.m.

    The White House says President Donald Trump made more than $150 million in income in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year.

    The acknowledgement comes as MSNBC host Rachel Maddow says she has obtained part of Trump's 2005 tax forms.

    The White House is pushing back pre-emptively, saying that publishing those returns would be illegal.

    It says, "You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago."

    The White House adds that it is "totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns" and is bashing the "dishonest media."

    Trump refused to release his tax returns during the campaign, claiming he was under audit.

    BFD. The American people now have seen a total of four pages (out of over 300 probably) of the president's tax returns from the past 20+ years. Somewhat less than full disclosure, I believe. Can't wait until his audit is over so we can see all the rest. Sure.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...get-400-million-from-chinese-on-marquee-tower

    "A company owned by the family of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, stands to receive more than $400 million from a prominent Chinese company that is investing in the Kushners’ marquee Manhattan office tower at 666 Fifth Ave.

    The planned $4-billion transaction includes terms that some real estate experts consider unusually favorable for the Kushners. It provides them with both a sizable cash payout from Anbang Insurance Group for a property that has struggled financially and an equity stake in a new partnership."

    Stop trying to compare Trump's travel ban that illegal deported American residents and Obama's visa ban. That's two different things.

    37,000,000 in taxes, in one year. More than Bernie will ever pay in taxes , more than Bernie will ever make in his lifetime. The man loves America. Can't be bought like these other shills. We are lucky/blessed.

    My point was that comparing Obamacare to Trumpcare isn't better than comparing their bans, ie not a good argument.
