|The New York Times spent months amassing 100-thousand pages of mostly financial documents and examined them for a portrait of how Trump built his personal fortune. Most of the documents relate to Trump's father Fred, who had become one of the wealthiest real estate developers in the U.S. by the time of his death in 1999.|
Before his father's death roughly twenty years later, Trump and his two siblings helped him funnel his wealth to them through a series of shell companies, thereby evading hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes.
|According to The New York Times, Donald Trump received at least $413 million from his father over the decades.||The story Trump told on the campaign trail, many times, was about how he received only a "small" $US1 million loan from his dad to build his business - and one Fred Trump made him pay back.|
"It has not been easy for me," he said. The Times reports that the senior Trump loaned his son $60.7m at least, most of which was never repaid.

|South African TV personality and businesswoman Bonang Matheba was cool when she appeared at the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on charges of tax fraud. Bonang has been charged for not paying personal tax from 2008 — 2017 and company tax from 2014 — 2017. The National Prosecuting Authority has asserted that charging Bonang Matheba for over a dozen counts of tax evasion is a signal to other dodgers that non-compliance will not be tolerated.|
| "No one is above the law. We are trying to promote tax compliance in South Africa." A warrant of arrest had been issued for Matheba after she failed to appear in court in September as the celebrity was in New York.

|Paul Gosar pretty much echoes the sentiments of Trump verbatum. Amazing how that works.|

|A Russian-American businessman who donated a substantial sum to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential election effort boasted to a senior figure in Moscow that he was “actively involved” in Trump’s campaign. Simon Kukes said he was helping Trump with “strategy development” and shared photos of his 29-year-old Russian girlfriend posing with the future president. In total Kukes gave $273,000 to Trump Victory – a fundraising committee that distributes donations between the candidate, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and state Republican parties. He had no previous history of giving money to political causes.|
|Kukes’s communications in summer 2016 are likely to be of interest to Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.|

|Latest Trumpism is that China is attempting to "meddle" in the forthcoming US mid-term elections. Trump claims massive evidence but is offering none. "They don't want me or us to win because I am the first president to ever challenge China on trade," Trump said. |
Trump did not offer proof for his claims, naturally. China and the US have been in a battle over tariffs since his election. China's foreign minister denounced the "unwarranted accusation".
