Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery wrote an op-ed suggesting that President Trump's tax avoidance, which was recently uncovered by The New York Times, tells a greater story of debt and desperation. "For the whole time he has been living rent free in the White House, Trump has been a desperate man, facing massive debts and looking for someone else to pay them off," he wrote.
