Donald Trump news – President is $1 BILLION in debt – more than double what he claims, new finance data report claims

DONALD Trump is more than $1 billion in debt, a new report has claimed.

A figure of around $400 million was suggested during a TV town hall appearance last night – something the President's appeared to agree with.

But a new report by Forbes claims the true figure is more than double that and is in fact over the $1 billion mark.

The debt is spread over more than a dozen assets, including hotels, properties and golf course, most of which appear on the financial disclosure report the President files each year.

But Forbes claims there are additional two assets totally $447 million that Trump hasn't previously mentioned.

Despite this, Trump actually has assets worth $3.66 billion, Forbes reports, meaning his estimated net worth is still $2.5 billion when you deduct debt.

    TRUMP V BIDEN

    President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden will return to the campaign trail today with visits to three battleground states.

    It comes a day after their televised town halls.

    A combative Trump, sparring with moderator Samantha Guthrie on NBC, refused to condemn the bizarre conspiracy theory QAnon, claimed the 2020 election is rife with fraud and questioned whether masks can help combat the spread of COVID-19.

    Biden delivered policy-heavy answers and focused his attacks on Trump's handling of the pandemic, which has killed 216,000 Americans and hammered the economy.

    UNEQUAL TURNOUT

    Voter turnout has been unequal so far – with Democrats outvoting Republicans 2-1.

    Republican have been bracing themselves for this early Democratic advantage for months.

    President Donald Trump blasted mail ballots and has raised unfounded worries about fraud.

    It does not necessarily mean Democrats will lead in votes by the time ballots are counted.

    Both parties are expecting a swell of Republican votes on Election Day that could, in a matter of hours, dramatically shift the dynamic.

    VOTING IN NUMBERS

    More than 17 million Americans have already cast ballots in the 2020 election, according to the latest data.

    The total represents 12 per cent of the all votes cast in the 2016 presidential election, even as eight states are not yet reporting their totals and voters still have more than two weeks to cast ballots.

    Americans' rush to vote is leading election experts to predict that a record 150 million votes may be cast and turnout rates could be higher than in any presidential election since 1908.

    Michael McDonald, a University of Florida political scientist who has long tracked voting for his site ElectProject.org, said: “It's crazy. We can be certain this will be a high-turnout election.”

    TRUMP AGREES TO PEACEFUL TRANSFER

    President Donald Trump during his town hall on NBC Thursday night finally said he would accept a peaceful transfer of power—under the condition that it’s an “honest election.”

    “Peaceful transfer? I absolutely want that. But ideally, I don't want to transfer, because I want to win,” the president said.

    Trump, who on various prior instances would not commit to a peaceful transfer, then accused Democrats of spying on his campaign in 2016.

    “And then they talk about, 'Will you accept a peaceful transfer?' The answer is yes, I will. But I want it to be an honest election. And so does everybody else,” Trump concluded.

    BIDEN ON ‘YOU AIN’T BLACK’ REMARK

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s past remark that “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or for Trump, then you ain’t black,” came back to haunt him during his ABC town hall on Thursday night.

    An undecided African American voter, Cedric Humphrey, asked Biden what he had to say to young black voters in courting their support, besides, “you ain’t black.”

    Biden replied, “you can make a difference” and “you can determine the outcome of this election,” before launching into a tirade of what he has done for the black community.

    When moderate George Stephanopoulus cut Biden off and asked Humphrey if he heard what he needed to hear, the undecided voter said, “Um, I think so.”
