According to previously unrevealed details from the president’s federal income tax returns between 1985 and 1994 Trump ate the nearly impossible figure of $1.17 billion in business losses. The worst two years of the period were 1990 and 1991, with $517.6 million in combined losses. (Most of that horrendous financial performance can be blamed on Trump Taj Mahal, which opened its doors in April 1990 with more than $800 million in debt financed at high interest rates.) In 1987, his best year during the losing streak and the year The Art of the Deal was published, Trump lost only $4.5 million. Between 1985 and 1994, Trump lost so much money that he was able to avoid paying income taxes for eight of the 10 years and he “lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer.
