“Fox and Friends” praised President Donald Trump for losing $1.17 billion between 1085 and 1994, as reported on his tax transcripts that were reported by the New York Times.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt gushed over Trump’s massive financial failures:
If anything, you read this and you’re like “Wow, it’s pretty impressive, all the things that he’s done in his life. It’s beyond what most of us could ever achieve.”
Earhardt did not mention Trump’s bankruptcies and the huge number of third-party vendors who did not get paid when Trump’s projects failed.
Co-host Brian Kilmeade called Trump a “bold businessman” because of his massive risky failures:
I can’t imagine having that much money, spending that much money and being in debt. For him, it makes sense; he’s buying now, building it up because he had confidence, he knows that the properties will be worth more.
For Donald Trump, he says, “I got some money but I want to really expand my empire, I want to take chances.” That’s what he’s done through his entire life.
Fox News co-host Steve Doocy said there’s no suggestion of Trump breaking the law, even though Trump said that claiming losses to avoid paying taxes is a “sport.”
