Donald Trump leaked his own tax returns to the New York Times. Sound crazy? Good.
The tax returns were from 1995. 1995 was a sentimental year.
Trump is a sentimental and loyal person, which is why he has many long-time employees and even his ex-wives remain friends with him. 1995 was special year for Trump, as his businesses had suffered massive losses. As part of his mindset training, Trump would remind himself daily of his goal.
- Trump would state an affirmation, “Survive ’til 95.” Trump knew that if he could keep his businesses open until1 1995, then the terrible real estate crisis would be over and he could recover. When frustrated or dare we say afraid, Trump would return to his powerful words of affirmation, “Survive until ’95.” (From TRIUMP: How to Overcome Impossible Odds to Win the Rigged Game of Life.)
1995 was a “comeback” year, and America is a comeback story.
1995 was Trump’s worst year. Yet when you see him today, you see a massive success.
Trump is using the power of metaphor to link himself and his own story arc to America’s.
Trump couldn’t release all of his tax returns at once.
Most Americans don’t know much about tax law, which is a problem for entrepreneurs like Trump. Tax law advantages those who create jobs by giving us access to all sorts of tax deductions. Many entrepreneurs have trouble getting a home mortgage because our income tax returns reveal little personal income.
Also, Trump had the huge loss from 1995 to “carry forward” to other years. (Under tax law, you can use a loss from a prior year to reduce your personal income in subsequent years.)
If Trump had released all of his tax returns at once, the 1995 carry forward loss would have been lost. Now everyone knows about the loss.

Trump can, if he wants, release more recent tax returns.
Leaking the returns lets Trump tell comeback story of his massive losses in 1995 (metaphor for America) while STILL bashing media. Glorious. https://t.co/XPurcH3QRM

Why did Trump leak the returns rather than release them?
Trump can talk about his comeback story and America’s comeback story while still bashing the hoaxng media for publishing “illegally obtained” or “possibly forged” documents.
Recent polls show that only 29% of people trust fact-checking websites. It’s better to leak documents because you can attack the hoaxing media.
Trump even nodded his head respectfully when leaking his own returns:
The three documents arrived by mail at The Times with a postmark indicating they had been sent from New York City. The return address claimed the envelope had been sent from Trump Tower.
Scott Adams also suspects Trump leaked the taxes himself.

The hoaxing media thought they had a scoop. They were played yet again.
If you think this theory is crazy, then Gorilla Mindset isn’t the book for you, as you have given up on understanding reality at a deep level.
