Score another win for President Trump!
Do you remember a while back we told you that California had come up with the ridiculous idea that anyone running for office had to disclose their tax returns or they would not be on the ballot in California?
Yeah, about that….a Judge just told them NICE TRY and sided with President Trump!
What boner thought that was going to actually work?
Even a layman knows that STINKS to high heaven of being unconstitutional!
I think all the pot is going to their heads out there in California!
Not to worry, our President has a very level head on his shoulders, and he’s using it wisely for our Nation!
You know what this tells me?
This is actually very interesting folks, and I can’t believe I’m just now putting it together.
What have I been telling you for the last week?
I keep saying I believe President Trump will turn California red in 2020.
I’ve felt compelled to start sharing that, but I’m not the only person.
Trump Prophet Mark Taylor has said it as well.
I finally just connected all the dots.
If they were SO confident that California would stay blue, why even mess around with this law?
You following me?
You getting this?
Why did they spend all this time on a law like this? The answer is simple….because they feel Trump can win California too, and they’re desperate!
Put all the pieces together folks, it all fits now!
Here are more details, from ABC News:
A federal judge on Thursday handed President Donald Trump a victory in his effort to keep his financial information secret, siding with his campaign's effort to block a California law aimed at forcing him to release his tax returns.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Morrison England Jr. comes as the president faces multiple Democratic-led efforts to force him to reveal his returns. Also Thursday, Trump sued to block New York prosecutors from their push obtain the returns as part of a criminal investigation.
Trump has bucked decades of precedent by refusing to release them, arguing they are under audit.
England, an appointee of former Republican President George W. Bush, plans to issue a written ruling by Oct. 1, and California is expected to appeal.
The law signed by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in July says candidates for president must release five years of tax returns by November to run in the California primary, which is scheduled for March 2020.
Attorneys for Trump and the Republican Party argued the law violates the U.S. Constitution by adding an additional requirement to run for president. England also seemed open to their argument that a federal law requiring presidents to disclose financial information supersedes state law.
"I don't care how you skin the cat, it's an unconstitutional law," said Harmeet Dhillon, a lawyer for the state and national Republican parties.
Democratic state lawmakers have argued that tax returns provide critical information for voters because they show a candidate's financial dealings, business interests and charitable giving.
Even the far-left HuffPost had to report the story:
Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law in July. It requires presidential candidates to release their tax returns from the last five years in order to appear on the California primary ballot. Both the Trump campaign and the GOP sued the state over the law’s constitutionality.
U.S. District Judge Morrison England Jr. issued the temporary injunction from the bench, saying he will make a final ruling in the coming days but that Trump and other candidates could face “irreparable harm without temporary relief.”
Trump is the first president in four decades to not release his tax returns, which could shed important light on his financial dealings and conflicts of interest.
Though the first-of-its-kind law is controversial even among Democrats, Newsom defended his decision to sign it as a necessary response to an unprecedented situation.
“These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence,” he said in July. “The disclosure required by this bill will shed light on conflicts of interest, self-dealing, or influence from domestic and foreign business interest.”
Only while they last!
