Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Donald Trump (HBO)

Holy crap talk about blatant misrepresentation!

Donald Trump's tax cuts are largely focused on the top 1%

Did you even read your own source? From your OWN SOURCE it says he will make the tax rate for anyone earning under $25,000 and for any married or joint couple earning under $50,000 be ZERO PERCENT.

For those individuals earning under 54,000, it will be cut from 25% to 10%, DRASTICALLY a bigger cut than the top end. The cut for those people will be 60% of the current rates, way bellow the 36% cut for the very highest bracket.

This is from your OWN SOURCE.

67% of the cost of the cut comes from tax breaks to the top 20%

No fucking shit, the top 20% pay 87% of the total income tax. Of course the portion that pays the most tax will have the largest effect when you cut taxes.

Donald Trump wants to bomb Iraq's oil fields.

Nowhere does it say that. It says "the United States should go into Iraq and seize oil being used to fund the Islamic State militant group".

Trump has stated MANY times that Iraq War was a mistake, even LITERALLY during the GOP debate as the entire establishment booed him for it.

Second, your source is the freaking WashPost, the shill propaganda site for the GOP establishment. They pump out misrepresentative anti-Trump articles on a daily basis. I know you just googled "Donald Trump wants to bomb Iraq", but don't use them as a source next time.

Donald Trump opposes gay marriage.

You linked to a Twitter post of Trump, this is what it literally says:

Once again the Bush appointed Supreme Court Justice John Roberts has let us down. Jeb pushed him hard! Remember!

He never said he would ban gay marriage anywhere.

Donald Trump calls for a 25% tariff on China.

What does that even have to do with the point there? This fits in with the other point, the desire to put America first in trade deals instead of pure Wall Street globalism that exploits third world workers abroad and destroys domestic jobs.

We are losing a $365 billion as a trade deficit for the privilege of dealing with China.

We have tariffs with lots of countries, and things like TPP are trying to destroy them to pursue the goals of globalists.

Somehow force Mexico to pay for a giant wall

This is the THIRD time you are using WashPost.

This infographic summarizes the Wall plan much better.

Donald Trump has filed bankruptcy for four of his businesses.

Yet more misrepresentation from WashPost.

1 of his 515 businesses was restructured through Chapter 11, a procedure that involves a reorganization of a debtor's business affairs and assets.

To be more precise, one of his companies was restructured three times before he decided to sell it just in time before the 2008 crisis took a major hit on Atlantic City, a decision praised by pundits and experts alike. Even Bill Gates has gone through this kind of bankruptcy with Optim Energy LLC per instance.

His success rate is around 99%. That's a very high success rate considering the fact that 80% of startup companies end up in failure.
