Re: Trump employment boom, Trump manufacturing bust

Hence my comment, "I'm curious how much of this may actually have been clever tax avoidance rather than actual losses."

Re: Trump employment boom, Trump manufacturing bust

"I took a lot of finance courses at Wharton. First they taught you all the rules and regulations.
