Action 1: Getting answers about trump's finances

BACKGROUND: Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee sent a letter last month to the CEO of Deutsche Bank – Germany’s largest bank -- asking whether the bank's loans to Trump for his real estate business were backed by the Russian government. The letter gave the bank until last Friday to respond, but it has failed to to so.

ACTION: In the wake of trump's behavior on his recent meeting trip abroad, it's possible that German Chancellor Angela Merkel might be willing to help. Please use the link below to urge her to request that the bank cooperate.

ACTION 2: Keep the pressure on about Trump's tax returns

Background: Trump’s New York state resident income tax returns show his salary, dividends, capital gains, rental real estate income and other income from all sources — including sources outside New York. Other States may or may not have quite as much information (because he has fewer holdings) – but all will be valuable! (NYS Senator Holyman and Assemblyman Buchwald are currently drafting a Bill.)

Action: PCA to your State Reps in New York, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, New Jersey, Nevada and Virginia, where Trump owns real estate, to ask them to pass a bill requiring the disclosure of Trump’s State Tax Returns.

SUGGESTED WORDING:

Dear Senator/Rep____,

I am writing to ask that you introduce a Bill to disclose Trump’s State Tax Returns. The American people have a right to know about what influences their President’s financial decisions on their behalf. Please stand up where the US Congress has not. I look forward to hearing from you.
