As stated in comments above. The debt is technically rolled over into every year- so he didnt lose 1 billion 5 years in a row.


Another thing what its interesting, the world knows he lost a billion dollars. It came up in the 2016 election. Then came back to make higher profits than ever starting in 1995. He even says it in his old TV show... The Media even covered His 1997 book Trump: The Art of the Comeback.

​

But you know, he took risks as a business man- failed a little bit. Then profits came in. Anyone who invested in what he was doing during the slump is probably raveling in riches now.

Why are people pretending like this is a revelation? He literally wrote a book about it in 1997, The Art of the Comeback.

From the publishers description:

> Six years ago real estate developer Trump (Trump: The Art of the Deal, LJ 2/15/88) was several billion dollars in debt, owing in part, he says, to his complacency and the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Now, thanks to some skillful negotiating, hard work, and luck, he says he is back.

That's covered in his OTHER book, "The Art of the Comeback." And no, not even joking, he really pushes that as one of his books. Also, this is legit ancient news. This was all revealed like a decade ago when he was on Apprentice. The New York Times is just re-wrapping old news to take advantage of the current news cycle to garner clicks.

I'll probably get downvoted for saying this here, but isn't this already known? Trump having huge losses has been something he has referenced in almost every book he has written and is discussed in almost every Trump documentary that has been made. Trump taking > 1 billion in losses has been known about for decades. In fact, Trump talks about his debt and losses and being upside down in those years in several of his books. He even tells a story of where he is walking with his daughter and points to a homeless man and stated that homeless man had more equity worth than him because while broke, he had no debt, whilst Trump had over a billion in debt.

  • Business Insider article in 2011 referencing Trump's lowest point where he was over a billion in debt

  • Ivanka Trump in the 2003 documentary "Born Rich" talking about her father pointing at the homeless man in reference to the above story.

    But I guess maybe it's not as common knowledge because apparently everyone thinks this is a huge revelation here.

    This tax story also ends 20 years before he runs for office... so maybe things can change?

    If you really want to hear about this from the horse's mouth, Trump literally wrote a book about this in 1997 called The Art of the Comeback and it discusses how he was over a billion in debt, his businesses were going bankrupt, and then how he managed to turn it all around.

    The funny thing is all the people in this thread that think this is somehow news that Trump crashed and burned in the late 80s and early 90s, forgetting that Trump has been a public figure for decades and that his entire resurgence was well-documented not only by his own book, but by the celebrity media who followed his resurgence in the mid to late 90s. Everyone knew this happened to him. My guess is it's younger people here who were too young when these things happened to remember them, or they weren't born yet, so they got so excited by this common knowledge story, at least common knowledge to anyone 30 years +.

    What actually happens here is this story helps Trump to his base even more. He took risks, he failed, and he pulled himself back up to be successful again. Him failing and becoming successful just makes people like him more. This is not the killer story to taint Trump the people here are hoping it is.

A reckoning is coming, losing Flynn sucks for Trump and team but he is no dummy and will learn from this mistake. I'd say get yourself a copy of this and let the man do his thing.

"One American comeback story involves a man very much at the center of the news for the past nine months. Donald Trump, as some news stories have pointed out, emerged from four bankruptcies on his path to reality TV star and now GOP frontrunner. The Donald’s net worth was heavily in the negatives in the early 1990s after a real estate crash and the failure of ill-advised side ventures like the Trump Shuttle - an airline he purchased and renamed in 1989 and gave up on three years later. His casino, Trump Taj Mahal, filed for bankruptcy in 1991, after it racked up a reported $3 billion in debt. A year later, Trump Plaza Hotel also filed for Chapter 11 reorganization. The New York native, whose net worth reached $1.5 billion in 1989 on the Forbes Billionaires list, slid off the list completely in 1990 and did not climb back until 1997. But the trouble didn’t stop there: Trump’s casino company filed for bankruptcy two more times, in 2004 and 2009, and the New York native reduced his stake in the ventures as a part of the deal."

Quick background for those that didn't know Donald went broke then 'came back'. Around the time his Epstein video was taken (1992) he was probably still not in the black.

He wrote a follow up book "Trump: The Art of the Comeback" in 1997:

https://www.amazon.com/Trump-Art-Comeback-Donald-J/dp/0812929640

Amazon description:

"Trump's story begins when many real estate moguls went belly-up in what he calls the Great Depression of 1990.  Trump reveals how he renegotiated millions of dollars in bank loans and survived the recession, paving the way for a resurgence, during which he built the most successful casino operation in Atlantic City, broke ground on one of the biggest and most lucrative development projects ever undertaken in New York City, and outsmarted one of South America's richest men for rights to the Miss Universe pageant."

That's not what I said at all. And what do article headlines have to do with this? My point stands. You don't have to read everything to have a general idea of what it's about. I don't know how he fucked up his finances, or what he did to get out of it. But I have a general idea of what the book he wrote about that shit says because lots of other people have described what it says. My original point was that this dude has not tried to hide or obscure the fact that he went bankrupt. He openly talks about it, and the book describes it. I don't quite understand what about my original statement you're trying to refute at this point. The original article by OP is not news and not a secret, so unless it shows something that we don't already know, I don't get why it's such a story.

Here are some sources to have a general idea of what the book is about.

Didn't we already know this from the interviews with Trump and Ivanka as well as the book that he wrote about the recession?

>Six years ago real estate developer Trump (Trump: The Art of the Deal, LJ 2/15/88) was several billion dollars in debt, owing in part, he says, to his complacency and the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Now, thanks to some skillful negotiating, hard work, and luck, he says he is back. Trump's goal for this third book is to provide "inspiration" for almost anyone, and some of his top-ten comeback tips are to play golf, stay focused, be paranoid, get even, and always have a prenuptial agreement. He even includes investment and marital advice he has offered to friends and acquaintances, e.g., "If he doesn't lose the ballbreaker, his career will go nowhere." Trump comes across as smug, crude, and self-impressed, but one remains fascinated with his business acumen. He dislikes shaking hands because it spreads germs and even informs readers to "simply bow" if they ever meet him. Recommended for curiosity seekers.?Bellinda Wise, Nassau Community Coll.

Sorry, Art of the Comeback. I get Trump's Art Of book titles confused.

You speak about this like it is some blockbuster revelation.

u/PMTurkeyBacon · -8 pointsr/politics

If you want to truly understand this latest bombshell I highly encourage you to read this book that Trump wrote over 20 years ago about being billions in debt in the 90’s.

Oh... wait

u/xterrorismofthemindx · -17 pointsr/PoliticalHumor

Wow you have demonstrated you know nothing about the situation, real estate, or the challenges developers faced during that period.

Read a fucking book sometime.

u/SunriseSurprise · -21 pointsr/politics

Just letting everyone know that this book has officially come out and spills the beans on the decade of Trump's real estate collapse. This is breaking news, never before seen, completely new to everyone.
