Donald Trump has bashed Ted Cruz over a loan Cruz took out from Goldman Sachs, a loan Cruz repaid. Earlier tonight I saw a new ad Trump released attacking Cruz again for that loan. As if normal people haven’t taken out loans from big financial institutions, and that there is something wrong with those who do.
Well, if that’s the case then Trump has a lot of explaining to do.
As I reported yesterday, at various times Donald Trump has had hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from Citibank and Goldman, some of which have been repaid, some of which were discharged in bankruptcy when Trump’s Altantic City casino went belly up. By Trump’s own standard, Citibank and Goldman own him, too.
But of course, it’s much worse than that for Trump. As a twitter user pointed out, according to Trump’s most recent financial disclosures, he has hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from virtually every bank on Wall Street. Here is a copy of the form.
Read the whole thing and take a good look at the form. Then share it far and wide. I’m going to try to remember to tweet that link out every day through the South Carolina primary, the Nevada caucuses, the SEC primary and every other primary until we have a nominee.
