Why would anyone pretend to be surprised when the most corrupt POUTUS in US history anticipated "earning" massive profits from an economic crash that cost 8 million Americans their homes?

"Two years before the housing market collapsed in 2008, Donald Trump looked forward to a crash: 'I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy,' he said."

"KIRKUS REVIEW

"A tale of greed and corruption involving 'corporate landlords' who 'drove a generational transfer of wealth from hundreds of thousands of individual homeowners to a handful of well-heeled bankers and titans of private equity...'"

"The author spotlights a variety of contemporary robber barons, including Donald Trump before he was president; Trump’s father, Fred; Wilbur L. Ross Jr. before he was the Secretary of Commerce; and Steven T. Mnuchin before he became Secretary of the Treasury.

"Glantz’s impressive research leads him to portray each of the tycoons as morally bankrupt and utterly without compassion for homeowners who lost their property."

It's bad enough that vulture capitalists like Trump, Barrack, Schwarzman, Ross, and Mnuchin found ways to profit from the fraud the created the Great Recession; what's even worse is that they are now is positions to create new financial products that could make the wealth transfers of the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression permanent.

So now you're whining about what Trump said in 2005 or 6? You really are desperate, aren't you? Do you even remember what you said in 2005, dumbass?

Trump had nothing to do with the collapse of the housing bubble in 2007

That was caused by do-gooder liberals who insisted that banks loan money to poor people who cpuld not make their house payments

HOMEWRECKERS by Aaron Glantz | Kirkus Reviews

"Occasionally, the author shifts the narrative to Sandy Jolley, a cheated homeowner who gathered copious amounts of information, found a lawyer willing to present her damning case to the federal government, and stood to gain substantial damages from the bankers under a law meant to reward whistleblowers.

"As Glantz relentlessly builds the indictment against the bankers, he wonders why law enforcement agencies failed to take any meaningful action. 'It’s hard to imagine [deals] so perfectly designed to lazily allow the government to undercut working-class Americans on behalf of a small group of billionaires,' he writes, 'but that is exactly what happened again and again.'"

Oh the horror. Eleven years ago Trump was one of about a billion real estate businessmen who saw the housing collapse as an opportunity to buy low and sell high. Hold the fucking presses. He would have been one hell of a sucky businessman and CEO if he had passed up that opportunity.

I mean, it's not like Trump is the one that put these people in homes they couldn't afford, foreclosed on them or kicked them in the streets! The democrats did.

You know George, I hear that in the 9th grade, Trump also used to dip girl's pigtails into inkwells! :eek:

Mr. Trump was prepared to act on bad news, that's what people do. Someone had to buy the foreclosed properties, who do you think should have.

Trump wasn't part of the government then, just a private citizen, he was in no position to orchestrate the financial panic that benefited the Democrat Party.

Very little if any

The crisis was caused by lending to unqualified borrowers in low income or marginal neighborhoods that was mandated by the clinton administration

Trump was not involved in that

Gee, sounds like Bill Maher and other Democrats hoping for a recession-and they don't even benefit-they just create misery for the people they claim they are "saving".

Trump was not involved in that

In 2007, on the eve of the big Financial Panic, I applied for a mortgage. At that point in time, I was earning about 60k a year with no other income. The bank pre-approved me for a 30 year, $240,000 loan to buy in the ghetto. Of course, not being a horse's ass, I didn't take the money. But I'm sure others would have and did.

Banks were loaning to anyone then, Illegals, 'under the table' workers with no documents, people on freaking welfare checks.

Why would you take the time & energy to go in a bank fill out tedious paper work & not take the loan?

Umm duh, grifters like Trump would crash economy ten times over if it means they can pocket some profit.

Among all the shit Trump sais and does this is pretty much a boring banality.

When weak-minded individuals like the OP have nothing better to go on, they dig up useless and slanted history to try and justify their ignorant hatred.

It's actually quite humorous as to the lengths they will go. And how easily they out themselves as butthurt children.

Plenty of value investors felt the same way, that the bull market in housing was way overdone and blown out of proportion by government "pushing." Never before government got that far involved, guaranteeing mortgages to buyers who clearly could not pay.....
