Timothy L. O’Brien, author of “TrumpNation has warned in a Bloomberg column that due to the many losses that President Trump has reported on his businesses that prompted his very low federal income tax payments that he is vulnerable to foreign influence and could be a national security threat.
He observed that because of his “indebtedness, his reliance on income from overseas and his refusal to authentically distance himself from his hodgepodge of business, Trump represents a profound national security threat — a threat that will only escalate if he’s reelected.”

He also noted that “The trade-offs someone like him would be willing to make to save his face and his wallet taint every public policy decision he makes — including issues around national security,” O’Brien wrote.
Trump is said to be the only candidate to have assumed office with the biggest debt of any president in modern times.
Trump paid just $750 in federal income tax in both 2016 and 2017; in 10 of the previous 15 years, he didn’t pay a cent, according to a Times analysis of several years of his tax returns.
Trump who is reported to be personally responsible for up to $421 million in debts, will be required to repay most of it in the next four years.
The question now is; will he be able to pay them all?
