Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has thus far refused to reveal his taxes to the American people despite the fact that we are weeks away from the general election.
However, Rachel Maddow has come forward with information regarding his secrecy and it doesn’t look good for Trump, to say the least. (Page 1 of 3)

In an anticipated Newsweek report that Maddow was able to get her hands on, she excitedly read shocking excerpts from the report and it severely damages Trump and his campaign. The ramifications are huge. The report reads:
“A close examination by Newsweek of the Trump organization, including confidential interviews with business executives and some of its international partners, reveals an enterprise with deep ties to global financiers, foreign politicians and even criminals, although there is no evidence the Trump Organization has engaged in illegal activities.” (Page 2 of 3)

We want to keep in mind that although the report reads that there is no evidence Trump engaged in “illegal activities,” the mere fact that he has ties to criminals is alarming in of itself. What’s even more alarming are his ties to foreign politicians that will pose a problem to the nation, creating a conflict of interest for Trump should he become president:
“It also reveals a web of contractual entanglements that could not be just canceled. If Trump moves into the White House and his family continues to receive any benefit from the company, during or even after his presidency, almost every foreign policy decision he makes will raise serious conflicts of interest and ethical quagmires.”
The report went on to point out that Trump’s ties to foreign elites and criminals will pose a grave security risk to the United States.
Despite the fact that Trump has effectively helped normalize racism with his rhetoric and has urged violence at his rallies, he continues to have support with some Americans. However, for those who truly care about the future of this country, Trump is not just someone who lacks the necessary skills to be president: He’s also a national security risk that poses a grave danger to the actual existence of America. He simply must not be president.
