President Donald Trump is well-known as a successful businessman. It was his business acumen, and his talent for marketing, that set him apart from all other presidential candidates and won him the White House.
Trump made his billions marketing out his name on various products, including hotels, water, steak, and airplanes. But did you ever know that Trump once owned a toy store?
OK, he didn’t actually sell toys. But imagine that he did for the following riddle:
A liberal steals a $100 bill from Trump Toy Store. Then he buys $70 worth of goods from the store using the $100 bill, and gets $30 in change. How much money did Trump Toy Store lose?
Do you know what the answer is? Is it $30? Is it $200?
Actually, the correct is answer is $100!
A liberal steals a $100 bill from Trump Toy Store.
So far Trump Toy Store is out $100. Easy enough.
Then he buys $70 worth of goods from the store using the $100 bill, and gets $30 in change.
By getting back the $100, Trump Toy Store recoups the original loss. Yet the store loses $70 in goods and another $30 in change.
Add $70 to $30 and what do you get? $100!
Now, if Donald Trump owned a toy store, you can bet he wouldn’t put up with petty theft. He’d have that liberal locked up in no time.
