Donald Trump To Respond To Warren Buffett In Latest Campaign Speech - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

With the Khan family off the front page for an hour, Hillary Clinton's billionaire buddy Warren Buffett is piling on, taking a job at Donald Trump's businesses and demanding a tax-return-showdown... Will Trump react?

Donald Trump shrugged off criticism from Warren Buffett on Tuesday, a day after the billionaire philanthropist challenged the Republican presidential nominee to release his taxes. As Politico reports,

“I don’t care much about Warren Buffett,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company” in a telephone interview.


“There’s no counterpunch. You know, I’m not listening to what—” Trump began. “Look, Warren Buffett has been a fan of — he’s a Democrat. He’s been a Hillary fan for a long time, and I think that’s fine. Hillary’s a disaster.”




At a campaign stop with Hillary Clinton in Omaha, Nebraska, on Monday, Buffett told supporters they would “learn a whole lot more about Donald Trump if he produces his income tax return.” Trump has said he won’t release his tax returns while he’s under audit. Buffett said he was also under audit but “would be delighted to meet him any time, any place before the election.”


“I'll bring my tax return. He can bring his tax return. Nobody is going to arrest us. There are no rules against showing your tax returns and just letting people ask questions about the items that are on there,” Buffett said. “You’re only afraid if you got something to be afraid about. He's not afraid of the IRS. He's afraid because of you.”

I cancelled my auto insurance with Geico.

Worst company in the world.

I’d love to see Donald's peppering Buffett’s head with… Head-Shrinking Powder.   ;-)

I love that logic.  The only reason somone hides their tax returns is because they're doing something nefarious?  That's the same logic that dolts use to justify the NSA snooping of Americans.  If you have nothing to hide, why do you care if they snoop?  Simple, I care to hide my PRIVACY

nmb, that is by far the most idiotic comment I have read today.  How you reached such a level of stupidity, yet managed to find this website and post to the article first, is a mystery.  Now go solve it!

I've always gone by the mantra if billionaire dems like Warren Buffet or George Soros is against it, they have lit the path that's best for us.

Kool-Aid flow is uninterrupted this morning ... he'll never show his taxes, because they'd be impossible to overcome. He's counting on deportation of muslims, a wall, and being the king of Debt - to woo fellow GOP/ZH'ers ... it won't last - eventually he'll have to do something presidential, like mention a policy or something crazy of the like

How about just shut up and pay the billion you owe the IRS Warren??

Ask Hillary(!) to release the identities, dollar amounts, and return favors, of all of her money-laundered-through-a-Canadian-"charity" donors to her BILLION dollar favor buying foundation.  Just keep asking it.  Maybe even hire some from the "protestors" for hire corporation that Hillary uses.  Have some violent "protests" over Hilliary's corruption.  Outside and inside of all Hillary(!) events, of course.

Ask her for her SOS schedule and prove that she actually gave the $250k speeches that she "allegedly" gave.

How many layups can Trump miss? First Khan, now this. He should have said "Of course billionaires are for the Dems, because all of the Dem bank bailouts and trade deals make them even richer. I'm more worried about all of the rest of Americans".

Hillary hates this independent ad about her outsourcing American jobs to's pretty funny too!

The Wizard's picture

No doubt his strategy is puzzling, he isn't stupid. However:


The folks speaking out against Trump are helping me make up my mind a little more every day!

·       Is he the Perfect Candidate whose thoughts mirrors mine on all fronts? NOPE

·       Does he say everything the way I wish he would say it? NOPE

·       Am I absolutely sure that his motives are absolutely pure? NOPE

·       Can I point to any other Democrat politician that I like better? NOPE

·       Is there any of the other RINO politicians I like better? NOPE

·       Am I going to sit home, refuse to Vote, and let Hillary win; because he is NOT Perfect? NOPE 

·       Do I like what I have seen for the last 7-1/2 years with the jerk that sleeps in our White House? NOPE

·         Do I like the "fundamental changes" that same jerk has brought about in our America ? NOPE

OK, your turn to decide what you are going to do in about 4 months

I would like the troll to counter the argument.

techpriest's picture

I am not a Trump supporter, but from a purely political perspective I think he is doing the right things. Namely...

1) Not admitting fault, ever
2) Putting as much attention as possible on himself, while denying it to Hillary
3) Talking about as few policies as possible, because releasing a policy in detail = opening yourself up to all kinds of criticism that you will get bogged down by it

Ultimately, in the major parties we have a corrupt felon who wants to run government for her backers, or a guy who wants to set up the government as something he runs entirely from the top. Or for a 3rd party we have Mr. Bean. Basically it's a question of how we are going to survive the next dictator-in-chief, as opposed to whether there is realistically a "better choice."

buffet donates to change the tax rules so the HE profits while the average joe or small business is less able to compete.

of course he is for the manipulatorclass, of course he is safe from a "random" audit. Of course hillary and Obama have his back.


Fuck the olde stooge and the Lear he flew in on

Rearden-Steel's picture

Quit my job at Buffet's largest insurer a few months ago after 9 years. Was on an upward path in the company but could no longer work for that man. Everyone should consider following suit if you make companies work for sociopaths like him.

Go galt!

DutchResistance's picture

Was that your response to Obama completely concealing his entire past?  

Or, why it took years for him to produce a birth certificate?

Maybe Trump should just said that his computer was hacked, or it crashed....and I just don't have a copy of it anymore.

...and even if the taxes are found to have error that indicates evasion, he could just say, "Oh, there was no intent on my part so, I'm innocent."

RichardParker's picture

You’re only afraid if you got something to be afraid about...

Buffet is beginning to sound alot like Joseph Goebbels.

Another Fire Marshall keeps Trump supporters out of his events.

The venue Donald rented, they let only 1000 in and 2000 locked out.

They used curtains to block part of the hall off to make it seem smaller in order to lock them out.

The mayor of the town had appeared at a Hillary rally the day before. Happened in Colorado and now in Pennsylvania.


Im telling you how this ends. We win but the country will have to go Turkey style purge to end it it. New America will be born after 2025.

Three Supreme Court picks.  Absolutely CRITICAL election.

Occams_Chainsaw's picture

You nailed what is honestly the only factor in this election.

Ace Ventura's picture

Which totally sucks. The fact SCOTUS judges are given lifetime appointments and somehow magically imbued with the supposed power to write law from the bench is astonishing. Our Founders would be SOOOOO F**KING PISSED AT US if they were time-warped into this lunatic circus.

SidSays's picture

They would not rcognize the place. 

So much so that they would probably have a revolution against us.

U4 eee aaa's picture

They would not recognize the place.....but Stalin might

Occams_Chainsaw's picture

I agree with your sentiment.  However, it's the reality of this election.  Do you want Hitlery or Trumpf stacking the SCOTUS?  I like Gary Johnson but since he can't win I have to root for the Trumpf.  Sigh......

LowerSlowerDelaware_LSD (not verified) Occams_Chainsaw Aug 2, 2016 1:59 PM

Agreed.  The stakes are too high.  A stacked leftist/statist nut-job court and were completely done.  Not that we're not done at some point in the future but why allow us to be finished off by Hillary?

I dont drink Coke anymore.  That shit will eat rust off chrome.  Just imagine what it does inside of your body.

I use diet coke to clean my pipes---kitchen sinks --- of the grime and grase. Cuts thru it like a knife!

You can also use it to clean your toilet bowl if you are short on clorox.

I'm serious. Read the small print on the label.


10 Industrial Uses for Coke Which Prove it’s Not Fit for Human Consumption


It actually has many indutrial uses too.

techpriest's picture

From a purely chemical perspective, you can do these with lemon juice too, though lemon juice is healthy. Basically you are talking about acid.

What makes Coke unhealthy is less the phoshoric acid, and more the massive sugar load. So much you get sick from drinking it.

Pretty sure natural stomach acid is a lot more potent than anything from Coke.

Nope.  Coke is the real thing.  You can play Breaking Bad with the syrup.

Yet, you still watch and support the NFL, a known organization that supports NWO, gun control, and democrat policies. Wake up dude.

Moustache Rides's picture

That's why they call it Coca-Killya

slightlyskeptical's picture

You should see what our digestive system juices can do to chrome. The stomach is perfectly able to handle the acidity of Coke. Orange juice is very similar in acidity. Have you stopped drinking orange juice?


The point is not to say to say that Coke is healthy. It's not. But you should start coming up with a more valid reson for why?

techpriest's picture

I will add lemon juice to water, and I don't drink orange juice. Same reason as Coke - too much sugar.

MaxThrust's picture

Problem is Chrome doesn't rust. Sorry to be a pain with truth. No slight intended.

Cross your fingers never to have a claim against a Gieco insured driver. You'd wish they had just  killed you in the collision.

I'll simply tell them they can pay up or deal with my attorneys. As in plural.

EVERY large company will shit you around these days until you tell them you have lawyers on deck. Then, you move into the "throw some $$$ at him to make him go away" column.

The trick is to say this the moment they start the run-around, so they never stop to question if you're serious. If you try to dither your way around their bullshit they'll start trying to run the clock out on you, betting that you won't pony up the cash to sue them.

"I'll simply tell them they can pay up or deal with my attorneys. As in plural."

Fuck that my attorney tells them for me.

Trump should ask Buffett about the bailouts his banks and insurance companies received and the humdreds of billions in drug cartel money laundered by Wells Fargo

SidSays's picture

Thanks for the reminder Sun Tzu, it is probably a good time to spread this around; I think the average Joe has forgotten how the world really works.

Now would be a good time to start to remind them just how badly they were fucked over in 2007/08.
