Apparently everyone who knows—including, surprisingly, the Secretary of State—says that Russia has perpetrated (and is continuing to do so) a massive intrusion into the computer systems of multiple departments of the US government. (Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said “…we can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity.”)
Finally, President Donald Trump chose to tweet about it just a few hours ago. He wrote “The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality. I have been fully briefed and everything is well under control. Russia, Russia, Russia is the priority chant when anything happens because Lamestream is, for mostly financial reasons, petrified of discussing the possibility that it may be China (it may!). There could also have been a hit on our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is now obvious that I won big, making it an even more corrupted embarrassment for the USA.”
After four years of his presidency, this is not Trump’s first attempt to deflect American attention from bad actions perpetrated by Russia.
Donald Trump never released his tax returns, never provided any financial information, either as a candidate or president.
The questions I am now asking are:
1. How much money did Donald Trump owe to Russia or Russian entities when he was elected president?
2. How much has he paid on those debts during his term as president?
3. How much money does he currently owe on those debts?
4. Do those numbers show that the amount he owes has decreased more than the amount he has paid?
