    Hey, I dont like the guy and all, but I'm curious as to why the police needed to tackle him. He was just talking to the officer and then another office runs in and yells at him and tackles him to the ground without even giving him time to comply. He wasn't threatening in any manner that I saw in the video.
    It seems like he came out peacefully to talk to the cop he knew personally. He didn't come out when asked by the first cop on the scene.

    Not sure the rest of the SWAT team was working on the same plan. They shouted "get down" 3 times in quick succession and then tackled.

    He's a huge guy and he was messing with firearms moments earlier inside so.... they may figure being gentle doesn't do much for them and their safety.

    On the bright side, the didn't shoot him and they didn't stand on his neck.

        It’s not any wonder Americans distrust police when a person who is being pretty much compliant, no visible weapon and looked like he was willing to cooperate overall is tackled and handcuffed. Now I know the call was that he had a gun but from the video it looked clear to me that there was no where he could have hidden one. Yes it could have been in a pocket but it would have shown.

        The other was it didn’t look nearly as cold as it appeared to be according to the lady in the bikini.

          He’s also a white guy though isn’t he?

And thats counting only stuff that is on public records. I surmise he is profiting from insider knowledge on the stock markets, financial markets, etc. He may also be collecting kickbacks from the rich folks he benefitted through his tax reforms and executive orders. So what is $400K? smaller than a drop in the bucket, more like several molecules in a bucket.

              But then you hurt your credibility when you tried to claim that Trump 'worked hard'. All reports that he keeps less working hours than Rob Ford did.
              Doesn't read reports.
              And has golfed far more than any of his predecessors. Including successive weekends during the 'first wave'. And of course billing the American government the full cost for his security detail to rent carts and rooms, from his 'resorts'.

              When you speak about corruption, conflict of interest and nepotism, Trump is far more associated with each of those than his opponent.

The easiest explanation is undocumented loans. So I wouldn't count on any accounting of Trump's assets or liabilities to be remotely accurate.
                    Bern. Some of the info is public. Trump Tower has value regardless of how much we don't like him. It's mostly debt and mortgage free. His lease on 40 Wall St. has value. He owns or partially owns several other premium properties, some we know little of the mortgage info. Some are made public through various avenues. He's carrying a lot of debt and several key business units look like they are loosing money. That's true. If he sells his very favourable lease to 40 Wall Street or his partner properties with Veradaro then that would be a sign of real trouble. If one or more defaults occur on significant properties that's another issue. One aspect I find interesting is almost all the golf courses he owns cannot be converted to residential or commercial real estate, they have to survive as golf entities. The Scotland and Ireland holdings will not be allowed to be redeveloped. Doral, maybe. Its just a nice course but 3 or 4 of the courses run through residential properties now. Bedford, not likely. California, no. Many questions about the loans have been asked and if co-signers exist, it should be made public. But I do look forward to the financials being released.

                        Sure he has some assets that are very valuable. If one is relying on accurate bookkeeping to reflect Trump's true financials one might as well throw a dart at the wall. I'm curious what the Scottish investigation will find with regard to money laundering.

                          Another aspect and habit of Trump's finances is the way he bleeds them. For example one of the key reasons Trump Casino failed in Atlantic City was the enormous management fees and salary he paid himself. This is sometimes called bleeding the asset. So for the golf courses. He is likely CEO of all the golf course companies. He would pay himself a huge (likely unwarranted) salary or management fee. This stresses the asset to loses. He gets a tax write-off for other profitable streams and ensures he personally profits regardless of performance of the asset. So even if Trump Golf declares bankruptcy, he has already got more personal funds out of it than the actual cash he put into it. This happened with the casinos. They went bankrupt but Trump had very little cash invested. He made money by bleeding the asset with his salary and management fees paid to a separate Trump entity not liable in the bankruptcy. Eventually trustees reduced his fees and then he wanted out.
                          In my years of being involved with buy-outs, we have seen this on occassion.

                            The question is who gave him the cash to buy these . . . Russians? Chinese? . . . my guess the Russians . . .
                            If you think it's hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.

                              At least one report says the cash for buying the course (some are financed) came from his 50% ownership of The Apprentice. At least the time lines coincide.

                                For 38% of Americans, that’s probably a decent deal. You may be able to get that number to 50% if a MacLaren is on offer!
