HONORE DE BALZAC ON DONALD TRUMP'S FORTUNE

Trump claims to be worth $10 billion. Forbes values him at nearly $4 billion.

Honore de Balzac is quoted thus:
Behind every great fortune lies a great crime.

I think Balzac may not be correct on Trump.

Because Trump has had a few tax breaks, which may or may not be legal, to get rich.

A thirty year complete tax break from President Jimmy Carter (why?).

An 18 year tax break after citing a near $1 billion loss.

Nearly $1 billion in tax breaks in total for construction projects.

No wonder he refuses to release his tax returns!

But I suppose one crime behind Trump's fortune is his use of cheap Communist Chinese sweatshop labour to make his teddy bears.

Because nobody in America can make a teddy bear.

Right?
