"The president has long sold himself as a self-made billionaire, but a Times investigation found that he received at least $413 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire, much of it through tax dodges in the 1990s."


I remember how in the run-up to the 2016 elections Stef went on and on about what a business genius Trump was, that he only received one million-dollar loan from his dad in the 1970s and built his wealth from there, etc.

Generally you have to double-check ANY factual claims Stef makes, because he has no compunctions about lying or "bending the truth" whenever he opens his mouth, like you would expect of a malignant narcissist, conman and demagogue.
