Should Trump Run Again?

Absolutely, but not in golf cleats because he might stumble and fall.

This is not a trick question or a trick answer.

Pull up almost any website on the Internet these days and you’re likely to see an ad asking: “Should Donald Trump run again” Some ads will include the words “Should Donald Trump run for President again?” while others will not.

As to the first question, the answer is a resounding YES! There is no question that Donald should run (‘again’ is a relative term used to imply he has, at some point in his life, run in the first place.)

He should run as far and as wide as he can--and keep on running anywhere and everywhere to keep the Attorneys General for the states of New York, Georgia, among others, along with Merrick Garland at bay, which would appear to be a losing cause given what we are discovering about his devious attempts to a) avoid paying taxes; b) avoid paying his creditors; c) avoid paying his contractors; d) stay in office past January 20, 2020; e) collude with the various groups associated with the January 6th insurrection.

By the time he runs away significantly far enough to evade prosecution of these events, he may find himself too winded to continue running for or against anything ever again.

Imagine for a moment that these incidents were facing each and every one of us as individuals. Personally, I would be mortified if any one of these events were attributable to something I condoned or participated in willingly.

Take Mr. Trump’s tax issues, for instance. The IRS is auditing him because he has allegedly deflated the value of some of his properties to lower his taxes, while at the same time, inflating the same properties’ values to help him qualify for certain financing terms and conditions.

Mental note: You can’t have it both ways — at least, not legally.

Doing so is committing fraud. Both property values, whether inflated or deflated, are suspect, according to GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.)

They are a fraudulent representation of a property’s true intrinsic value. A person who uses this technique to “have his cake and eat it, too” is only fooling himself, because eventually he will be found out and, just as eventually, will have to suffer the consequences of his actions.

Those who may have approved his loans or extended him credit did so in a good faith belief that he has given them all the accurate details for them to make an informed decision. Not doing so defrauds them because it harms their decision-making process for all future loans or credit decisions.

Next, come the contractors that he signed contracts with to perform certain jobs for him. It doesn’t matter if they are party planners, plumbers, electricians, or any of a number of accountants and property managers he might use.

If he doesn’t pay them, it defrauds them of the value they created to provide the service he needed at the time he needed it. After all, who works for free?

As future hearings and testimony come to light, there are sure to be new, never-before-seen-or-heard details about his involvement in the events leading up to and including January 6th.

There are sure to be more whistleblowers stepping up to provide new insights into the intricate details of each of those collusional events.

Georgia’s attorney general has some very damning evidence that might be used to prosecute Mr. Trump. If convicted of misdeeds related to trying to find 11,780 more votes, it would immediately stop any potential 2024 run.

Run, Donald — run!
