Your example isn't even in the same ballpark. You gambled that the benefits of the education would outweigh the costs of the borrowed money.
Trump was happily gaming the system and now wants to make it illegal to do so. If he truly believes the visa program is detrimental to the US economy why would he partake in the loopholerie just to make money? Oh, wait a minute, I forgot, the pursuit of money is the only thing worth living for and anything done in that pursuit that is not specifically
deemed illegal is all good. I guess the adage 'just because one can doesn't mean one should' no longer applies to living in our modern society.
You're fucking delusional. How was he 'gaming the system'??? The system was gamed for him! Yes, as a businessman his aim is to make money,
and as a successful businessman he uses avenues afforded to him through tax policy, immigration policy. If loopholes are closed it would be illegal for him to do things that were previously legal. This really isn't rocket science.
Further, what sinister 'loopholerie' are you referring to? Is it the legal H1B visas given to the models he hired for his resorts, or the legal permits for low-skilled seasonal vineyard workers? Guess what, it's legal and normal course of business, not loopholes. Do you even know what his policy proposals are? Do you know anything about the H1B program and why people have been calling for it to be modified for years?
One last thing: Trump's campaign was highly successful in large part because he on a fwe things at every stop along the way: 1. I'm a successful businessman, employing thousands of people and making a ton of money. 2. I know US business and tax policy, being successful in my ventures I need to know how all this works; 3. It's a fucking mess, and is part of why American businesses are falling behind and/or looking overseas, why people are underemployed, why wages are stagnant. 4. I can fix it.
I don't believe #2 and #4 are true, which is part of why I didn't vote for him. #1 is mostly true. But #3 is where I'm totally with him, and I hope he's successful in retooling our tax code and immigration policy.
