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.
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, 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.

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.

With so much focus in recent months on the scientifically discredited notion that childhood vaccines cause autism, the real threats to health care and services for people with autism and other disabilities aren’t being given enough attention, argue two leading health policy experts.
“President Donald Trump’s apparent openness to a long-debunked link between vaccines and autism risks encouraging Americans to stop vaccinating their children, posing a serious public health threat,” the researchers write in the March 9 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. “Meanwhile, renewed attention to disproven theories about autism may be distracting us from growing threats to essential policies that support the health and well-being of people with autism or other disabilities.
