Revealed: Trump administration members’ personal finances

Public radio show highlighting #CitizenSleuth reporting project this weekend

Introduction

This summer, the Center for Public Integrity and Reveal joined forces with hundreds of “citizen sleuths” to investigate the personal assets, liabilities, business ties and potential conflicts of interest of President Donald Trump and hundreds of his administration appointees.

This weekend, Reveal — a co-production of The Center for Investigative Reporting and PRX — will broadcast and podcast a special segment about the people behind the #CitizenSleuth reporting project and what they’ve uncovered.

A sneak peak: You’ll learn a lot about recently fired Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s million-dollar debts, a shadow White House press office that may violate federal law and some Trump officials who earn a government paycheck despite owing the Internal Revenue Service tens of thousands of dollars.

Interested in how much Trump himself is worth? We’ll tackle that, too.

Update, August 28: Listen to the podcast version of the #CitizenSleuth segment here.

Reveal and the Center for Public Integrity will also collaborate on a second segment airing this weekend about how children from New Jersey to California find themselves at risk of breathing toxic air — just by going to school.

Consult this list to find a local radio station that airs Reveal. (Scroll right on the chart to find the day and time Reveal airs on your local station.)

And come Sunday, download the Reveal’s podcast version of the show by clicking here.

Trump needs to conduct these activities because the entire MSM media, excluding Fox, is campaigning against him 24/7/365.

Didn’t Monica’s boyfriend’s wife and various criminal enterprises outspend Trump by almost 2-1?

Why wouldn’t he get an early start on fund raising? Hillary outspent him two-to-one in 2016. The Dem’s are the party of big money. The President knows this and is attempting to get a jump on it. Of course the Dem candidate will outspend him in 2020 so it’s only rational that he starts fund raising now.

Oh brother. We just 8 years of the Campaigner – in – Chief. Where was this journalistic rectal thermometer then. Just another article about 2000 words too long that merely takes another slap at Trump for something he far from initiated.

The big difference between Trump and all the rest is his refusing to accept funds from lobbyists, so they don’t have the White House access they are used to. These are the donors who buy the presidency and are as pixxed off that he won the election as are the media and the Dems. Lobbyists have never been shut out of the WH and Trump has told them he is not for sale.

Trump needs to be impeached and tossed in prison. Then have the key thrown away so he will never be free. Then he can see how it feels not to have freedom.

First, something positive. I was happy to learn of empirical information in article. BUT, the article was so slanted against President Trump as to be deemed fake news (“Perhaps Trump just lied.” (Two different issues)). The article mentions that President Trump raised over $67 million, but ended 2018 with $19 million. President Trump spent over $40 million 2016 and 2017. President Trump conducted 57 political rallies. The article notes the hats and T-shirts sold, but NEVER MENTIONS THE INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF REPUBLICAN SENATORS during a mid-term election that lost the House and the number of political rallies in… Read more »

At least Trump is getting donations from willing donors. Fresh from his first election, Obama used billions of our children’s tax dollars to save thousands of union jobs in the car industry and bailed out the banks and many Wall Street businesses. This secured his source of reelection funds for his reelection four years later.
