Trump Claims Being President Has Cost Him $2-3 Billion: It's Worth It, 'I've Done a Great Job'

On Fox and Friends on Thursday, President Trump was on air by phone for an extended interview covering several topics, which included at one point, naturally, his own wealth. Answering Brian Kilmeade about whether being President is worth the trouble, Trump said the job has probably cost him billions of dollars. Kilmeade prefaced his question with a litany of the president’s woes, including the recent New York Times report on his taxes his friends and associates facing jail, and so on.

“Mr. President, big picture question, when you look at the scrutiny on your personal finances, and the taxes go back to your dad, when you see your lawyer that has to cut deals and the National Enquirer buddy of yours has to cut deals, CFO of your company has got immunity, and you see pressure of family is under and 50% of the country doesn’t like you, and 50% will do anything for you,” said Kilmeadem, “do you ever say why do I need this, why did I do this?”

Trump responded by stating a monetary cost, and saying that the monetary cost was worth it due to how great he is. “Well it certainly– you know, I’ll tell you what. I’ll bet you it cost me– you know, I see these people say ‘Trump gets rich being president’, I’ll bet you I’ve lost billions of dollars. It cost me billions, I said to one of my friends, a very wealthy friend, I bet it cost me 2 or $3 billion, it is worth every penny of it,” said Trump. “I don’t need the money, and it is worth every penny because I’m doing so much for the country. I mean what I’ve done in terms of costs, what I’ve done in terms of the military. We’re rebuilding the military, very shortly we’re gonna have the strongest military we’ve ever had.”

“Yes it’s nasty, it’s vicious, it’s incredible, the false reporting is so incredible, but honestly I’m doing a great job,” he said.

Trump explained to his favorite hosts that the proof of his great job is in the number of people who attend his rallies.

1. Show us the corroborating evidence or STFU. Thanks Melania.

Those pesky tax returns would be a start.

11. Running that through the TrumpTranslator(tm)...

...which just assumes he's flat-out lying and reverses the meaning 180º, we see that he means "I've made roughly 2-3 billion dollars from being a shallow, egocentric, ass-clown."

20. So when his actual net worth is revealed he can use this for reasoning.

Trumpanzees (Ruusians) have had a meme floating on Farcebook for some time comparing how much the Clintons "made" off the WH while showing what Hair Furor has lost, in service to HIS country.

Would he please declare that eating your own shit is actually a healthy alternative just so his believers never miss a meal?

23. "I've done a great job!"

Isn't that a quote from Benito Mussolini from April 27, 1945?
