Trump Organization’s math doesn’t add up

Reader objects to explanation by the president’s son that the Trump Organization’s golf courses aren’t really losing money

I’m not a CPA, but I can use a calculator. According to Eric Trump, the Trump Organization’s golf courses are not really losing money (“Exclusive: Donald Trump’s son says family golf course business ‘has never been better,’ ” Oct. 5).

Sixteen courses show an average “paper loss” of about $20 million each? Lying must be part of the Trump DNA.
