    That's what I think, too.

      When somebody like you loses their temper I am sure it is the source of much amusement to all involved.

      Trump is however a world leader and as such needs to operate his brain to mouth filter.

        Oh, then I take it back. I'm not glad the question is starting to be asked by Trump supporters. Silly me. I was thinking that Trump supporters were beginning to wonder about him.

          Trump has the means to alleviate all concerns about himself and totally silence his critics but he just won;t do it.

          And that is to comply with the House subpoenas for financial records etc. The biggest concern of course is his extensive dealings with the Russians prior to the elections. If it was all above board then he shouldn't have anything to worry about.

            I read that from an average of twenty-something tweets per day, after the start of the impeachment inquiry Trump reached a figure of 50 tweets per day. Pelosi has become his worst nightmare and the results of sleep deprivation are showing...

              Similar could be said about the Bidin's. If they did nothing unethical or "wrong", then shouldn't object to completing investigations they sought to have suspended.

              A reminder of the Fifth Amendment in our Bill of Rights.

              Also, Trump and his family have been near daily targets since before he was elected.

                Wrong comparison since Biden has released twenty years (IIRC) of tax returns.

                  This is closer to what we are seeing.
                  Trump and his family, have been daily targets from the LW and the LW-leaning MSM since before the election results. That's nearly 2 1/2 years of constant public assault and abuse. Obama and his family didn't experience anything close to this level of daily and large-scale public condemnation, if anything they received more adulation than they deserved.

                  Considering the two different situations, Trump seems to be handling things better than his predecessor could have been expected to. And probably better than many of us here could handle the daily abuse from opponents.

                    Trump could have chosen to try to shield his family from politics. Not only he did not do it, but he is using his family in top positions of his cabinet creating an environment where the entanglement of family business and politics raise naturally legitimate concerns and criticism.

                      Issues related involve more than tax returns, which only provide a limit of information.

                      Engaging blackmail to squash investigation into his son's business dealings with a foreign company/nation suggests there is something to hide. No reason to get upset about Trump asking for further inquiries if there is no "dirt" to be found.

                        I think full financial disclosures should be made mandatory for those seeking higher office. If someone doesn't like it then find another job.

                        As far as Biden goes, line him up in front of a firing squad and shoot him. I don't care. Now back to Trump...

                        Take a look at the following link and see how often Russia comes up with regards to Trump. If you don't see any probable cause then I don't know what else I can tell you.

                        Aren't you even a little concerned about his integrity?

                          Mueller has not been able to prove that Trump did something illegal related to the Russians .

                            What you say is just nonsense. Biden carried an official US policy as he was instructed by Obama and did it in the open together with other international institutions and countries.
                            And if Trump is sooo hesitant and evasive in revealing his tax returns, it is a choice that will naturally raise suspicions and invite political criticism. As I said, his behavior cannot be compared to Biden's as you tried to do.

                              Compare all the positive press that Michele Obama received(and still does) to that for Melania Trump and one gets some scale of what I'm referring to.

                              "... naturally legitimate concerns and criticism." part and parcel with our political system, just look back to time of JFK for another example of bringing in family to top positions. My point is about the amount and extent of such, which is far more volume than BHO and Co. had to deal with,
