Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is so committed to endorsing Hillary Clinton that he is willing to take people to the poll who have difficulty in going there. What’s surprising is, Buffet and Trump are from the business sector – but he despised Donald Trump so much that he is questioning his tax returns and his ignoring independent business people or small-time entrepreneurs.
At the Nebrasks campaign with with Hillary Cl, Buffett scrutinized Trump’s business record, questioning his bankruptcies and his not releasing his tax returns. The so-called “Omaha Oracle” then announced a new campaign called “Drive 2 Vote,” hoping to bring out voters in Nebraska’s second congressional district, offerring a single Electoral College vote to the district winner.
Buffet promised this: “I will take at least 10 people to the polls who would otherwise have difficulty getting there,” said Buffett, and added that he had reserved a 32-seat trolley for the day to be able to reach the highest-percentage turnout of any congressional district in the country. “Let’s give America a civics lesson;”he urged everyone.
Trump responded to the Muslim-American family who spoke against him at the Democratic National Convention by attacking Khizr and Ghazela Kahn, whose son in the US Army was killed in Iraq in 2004.
Buffett described Trump’s attack as “the final straw,” just because his family had not sacrificed like military families and he knew nothing about losing a beloved through war.
Meanwhile, Clinton seeks to woo moderate and independent voters. In fact, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban campaigned with Clinton over the weekend, as well as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg delivered a searing indictment of Trump’s economic proposals during the Democratic National Convention.
Before several thousand people gathered at an Omaha high school, Buffett also challenged Trump to show off their tax returns in one venue. He added that after Trump listed his casino and hotel company on the New York Stock Exchange before in 1995, investors lost money, even though in 1995 they can easily make money on anything.
Buffett asserted even more that the tax policy favors the wealthy despite being wealthy himself, which Clinton agreed, thus pledging to implement more taxes on the rich. Clinton further criticized Trump’s love for foreign products that is killing their own economy.If the district has the highest percentage of voters and if Clinton wins, we can expect Hillary and Warren to be back in the streets of Omaha dancing together and probably Warren in an Elvis costume once again again.
