Either way, I'm sure that he's taking the tax write off.
Take this with a grain of salt because I don't have a link handy, but I saw a headline when I was toilet-scrolling through the news earlier that I'm pretty sure said the returns showed he did not donate his presidential salary for a couple years he was in office. So he might not have.

Yeah.  Wasn't a tax writeoff.  He technically made $1 while in office with the rest of his salary going to one department or another.
I'm curious to see how that looks on paper but not today.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

This is what I found:
President Trump donated at least $1.4 million of the $1.6 million he earned as president to various federal agencies. Still in question, however, are the donations for the third and fourth quarters of 2020. Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com verified fourteen of sixteen quarterly donations over four years.

Yes, he was going to donate his presidential salary to charity. Just like he promised he would release his tax returns.
Just like his 'Trump University' was going to make people rich.
Just like he called his rabid, mongoloid followers to attack our democracy and threw them under the bus afterwards.
Just like every business deal he made from the '90s till now,
He's an absolute lying sack of shit, commie-sympathizing traitor. I understand people falling for his bullshit for a few decades but anyone who listens to him at this point is a complete idiot who deserves to lose everything and go to jail with Steve Bannon.

But he couldn't release his tax returns because they were under audit.  Except that they weren't, even though they were supposed to be.
But the revelation about the IRS’s failure to perform the required audit of Trump’s taxes—that it did not happen at all for more than two years, and that, according to the committee, his 2017, 2018, and 2019 tax returns were not even selected for audit until after he left office—deserves yet more scrutiny. The IRS’s own regulations mandate that a president’s taxes must be audited every year.

Biden just gave Trump a masterclass on how to responsibly deal with finding classified docs in your possession inappropriately. Surprisingly, he didn’t claim he was being harassed, that his passport was stolen or that he could declassify documents with a thought. Just notified NARA and immediately returned them. Can’t wait for the GOP to attempt to equate the two situations. Perhaps this will be the first attempt at impeaching Biden?

I mean, Trump already is.

https://www.npr.org/2023/01/09/1147977922/classified-documents-biden-doj-archives

"Trump took to his social media platform Truth Social after hearing the news, where he posted, "When is the FBI going to raid the many homes of Joe Biden, perhaps even the White House? These documents were definitely not declassified." "

Yes, Trump.  Becasue the white house, AKA the Presidental residence and office, is surely a place classified documents don't belong....  ::)

I suppose the answer to his question is they FBI will raid Biden after he ignores multiple requests, for over a year, for documents to be returned and after he has lied about having said documents in his possession.

Oh hey, Trump is going to be charged with election related crimes on Tuesday.

EDIT: Apparently this indictment will be related to Stormy Daniels hush money payments.

The thing is that we haven't heard this from anyone official yet. Trump may be the 'illegal leak.' He may just be trying to summon his redneck army to rally to his defense and donate money. It may be just another limp-dick, self-deluded attempt to take over the country.

https://www.reuters.com/world/us/trump-says-he-expects-be-arrested-tuesday-manhattan-da-case-truth-social-2023-03-18/

This time, everybody's been warned. If a Trumpaholic mob of Pro-Putin mongoloids makes a run at one of our government buildings, I expect a helicopter gunship to come over the horizon and turn them into hamburger meat. That's why I pay taxes.

Yeah but so far the only info we have is from Trump himself.

I wouldn't mind him being arrested.  But they should do it on a Thursday, so that his followers are all ready Tuesday, take their vacation days or sick days or what not from work, then when it doesn't happen, go back to work Wednesday then BAM, Thursday rolls around and they arrest trump and no one is in the streets to demand his release.

Summary;
Trump didn't get arrested and more reporters than protestors showed up.

Guess Trump isn't popular enough to take off work to protest for anymore.

So yes.  I believe he said such a thing.  And so did others.
