Calls are growing for President Trump to release his full tax returns after part of his 2005 return was made public Tuesday. Two pages from Trump’s tax return were obtained by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist David Cay Johnston of DCReport, who appeared last night on “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC. The 2005 tax return shows Trump earned $153 million—or more than $400,000 a day. Trump paid out $36.6 million in federal income taxes, much of it in the form of what’s known as the alternative minimum tax, which Trump now wants to eliminate. On Wednesday morning, President Trump tweeted, “Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, ‘went to his mailbox’ and found my tax returns? @NBCNews FAKE NEWS!” That’s despite the fact that the White House confirmed the authenticity of the documents Tuesday, after Maddow teased the scoop. For more, we speak with Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist David Cay Johnston, who obtained part of Trump’s 2005 tax returns.

The Appalachian region awarded Trump big, fat wins. After all, Trump digs coal! Now it’s time to get their rewards. How does his budget reward them? Well, there’s the Appalachian Regional Commission. Or rather, there was, because Trump’s proposed budget completely eliminates the ARC. The commission supports local communities and regional programs, it also helps jumpstart local entrepreneurs and regional businesses which have created tens of thousands of jobs. It also contributes to local infrastructure, community management, and hundreds of local programs.

Sorry, it did all those things. Clearly not needed.

There’s also massive cuts to the Labor Department that eliminates job training. On the chopping block are both the Senior Community Service Employment Program that helps workers over 55 find new jobs, and Job Corps that helps young people get work experience and skills.

Both are widely used in Appalachia. Sorry, were. Were. Nobody wants them now.

There is one unemployment program Trump is anxious to fund. He’ll expand the Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment program, REAP, which helps companies spot

While at first glance this appears to be another hare-brained idea and certainly would be if Government (taxpayers) money was to be used both for its initial purchase and then for its sustainability (running costs).

However, if money was forthcoming from the businesses that would benefit from an increase in trade, then that could be a different matter.

However, as that would be extremely unlikely to occur I therefore concur with the previous comments that it will be a waste of money and another foolish and expensive idea from the Boris, as it would be dead in the water, like a lead balloon. However, it could be crewed by the Cabinet and they could go down with the Yacht, although there are less expensive ways to be Cabinet rid.


The unpredictable novice in the White House is making emerging markets seem less dangerous by comparison, say strategists like Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s Kamakshya Trivedi.

Labour’s economic plans have come under fire after one of Jeremy Corbyn’s closest allies struggled to explain how the party would fund its proposed £63bn of spending on public services. Rebecca Long-Bailey, the shadow Business Secretary, was repeatedly asked during a live television interview how her party could raise the money without breaking its promise not to increase borrowing.

Not only should these 2 persons be fined the maximum amount they should also be subject to a jail sentence.

Article states ‘One employee admitted to CQC inspectors that the bedrooms were more ‘like a prison cell’.’ However, this would not relate to UK prison cells which would be a luxury compared to these bedrooms.
