Coronavirus in Burgos: The covid leaves another deceased and 36 new positives in Burgos

The covid-19 pandemic continues to hit the province of Burgos, where today, the Ministry of Health of the Junta de Castilla y León notifies the death of another person diagnosed with the disease. With this, there are already 707 deaths registered in hospitals in the province since the pandemic broke out in March last year.

To all of them should be added part of the deceased in homes for the elderly and dependents, where according to the latest report of the Board, 366 people with confirmed covid had lost their lives and another 109 with symptoms compatible with the disease, but without diagnosis. Part of these deaths are already included in the hospital statistics, but others are not.

In parallel, Health also today notifies other 36 new positives for coronavirus, all corresponding to cases diagnosed the day before. This is a lower figure than that notified yesterday (51), but very similar to that registered last Sunday (36). It remains to be seen if the trend continues over the next few days, when the data is expected to adjust due to the usual underreporting on weekends.

Burgos reduces the incidence of covid-19 but maintains 50 municipalities at very high risk

In any case, Burgos once again heads the epidemiological statistics in Castilla y León, where today 151 positives and two deaths have been reported.

Of course, the good news is that the main epidemiological indicators continue their positive trend. Thus, right now surveillance is being maintained on a total of 61 active infection foci, that affect a minimum of 467 people. It is the highest number in the entire community, yes, but it also represents a decrease of six foci compared to Saturday’s data.

Incidence down

The cumulative incidence has also decreased, which today stands at 246 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, 5 points less than yesterday, although still at high risk levels. In fact, Burgos is the only province in Castilla y León that exceeds an incidence of 200 cases. And it does so easily.

For its part, hospital pressure remains practically unchanged compared to Saturday’s data, with 57 hospitalized in plant (one more) in the province and 18 patients in the ICU of the provincial capital (two less)

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced this week that those who have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and also have completed the 14 days necessary for immunization, they should not wear mask in closed or open environments.

Neither in Uruguay nor in the United States has the percentage established by the World Health Organization (WHO) to reach herd immunity. So, based on the American announcement, it is inevitable to question whether we will see measures of this kind in our country in the short term.

The answer is no”. Both sources from the Ministry of Public Health (SMEs) as consulted epidemiologists, virologists and infectologists agree that it is not yet appropriate to think about a relaxation in non-pharmacological measures.

The Minister of Public Health, Daniel salinas, told El País that “in the future and not in the present” meetings may be held between immunized people without masks or social distancing, but first “we have to reach the goal of herd immunity”.

In the scenario to which the minister refers, the infections are not completely extinct, indeed, according to epidemiologist Juan Gil, who is a member of the ALL, “The efficacy of vaccines has been proven to prevent symptomatic disease and to reduce the most serious complications”, but “it is certain” that once vaccinated “we can continue to infect and infect”. When the herd immunity “It is expected that the disease is transmitted like any viral picture,” added Gil.

In this sense, the doctor in Biochemistry and specialist in applied immunology, Lucía Vanrell, warned that it is necessary to “think about the epidemiological situation from all over the country ”, despite the fact that the people who come together are vaccinated. “Even if I am vaccinated, it will continue to be serious if I continue to transfer the virus, although nothing will happen to me, but perhaps to another person,” he explains.

The role of Sinovac.

In addition to the complexity of the current epidemiological situation, in Uruguay most of the vaccines administered are from the Chinese laboratory Sinovac, which presents some uncertainties.

In Brazil the studies indicated an effectiveness of 50.4% to prevent symptomatic cases, in Chile 67% and recently in Indonesia the Coronavac it was shown to avoid 94% of these cases. So which of all these numbers should we take to be reliable? According to Salinas, “the data to look at are those of Uruguay.” In other words, we must hope that studies that are just beginning to be done will yield results.

The diversity in the data for this vaccine occurs because “it depends on the epidemiological circumstance in which the study is carried out,” said virologist Juan Cristino. “It is not the same to do it with a low prevalence (of the virus) than at a time when there is a more difficult situation,” he said.

A source from the MSP told El País that “we are going to have to walk the same or better” than Indonesia, because here other vaccines were used with high effectiveness.

The infectologist Susana Cabrera warned that “any vaccine is more effective in young people”, due to the reception of the immune system, and from that he concluded that in Uruguay the most vulnerable people were vaccinated with Pfizer and the youngest with Sinovac, “while in Chile they used Sinovac for everyone”, which “could imply better results.”

In the US, most of the vaccines used are more than 80% effective. In this sense, the immunologist Álvaro Díaz said that “with a vaccine that is 50% effective, you have to vaccinate two people to have the same effect as vaccinating one person with Pfizer.”

Doctors disagree with Presidency spot

“The only situation that allows you not to use the mask is when everyone who shares a space already has two doses,” says the announcer of a new spot for the presidency.

Doctors and advisers expressed their disagreement with the piece because “the message is contradictory” and “does not contribute to reducing cases,” according to El País. Salinas said the goal of the ad is “to give a message of hope,” although what is said is not recommended by the MSP.

There is a machine capable of cleaning Apple AirPods and leave them as new | Gadgets

AirPods are one of Apple’s greatest successes of the last four years. A device that has radically changed the landscape of mobile audio and that came to confirm the step taken that same year when Tim Cook’s men decided to remove the minijack connector from all their smartphones. The upshot of that strategy is that the AirPods have been a bestseller, having a second generation in early 2019.

The owners of the AirPods Pro de Apple they will have to deal with a serious problem forever: the wax that accumulates in your daily use.

Repsol leaves behind the red numbers due to Covid and earns 648 million in the first quarter | Companies

Repsol has left behind the losses that accompanied it during the year of the pandemic. The company led by Josu Jon Imaz has achieved a profit of 648 million of euros in the first three months of 2021 that contrast with the red numbers for 487 million registered in the same period of the previous year, since it has been driven by the recovery in crude prices.

And it is that, the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic caused in 2020 a collapse in world demand and the prices of reference raw materials that led Brent to record minimums of $ 15 per barrel in April of last year and to a average price for the year of 41 dollars. On the other hand, between January and March 2021 the average price of Brent has increased to 61 dollars per barrel and has allowed stocks to revalue, while that of Henry Hub gas stood at 2.7 dollars per MBtu, similar to the previous quarter.

For his part, adjusted net result, which measures the evolution of businesses discounting the variation in the value of inventories and extraordinary items, stood at 471 million euros, 5.4% above the equivalent period of 2020 thanks to the Exploration and Production and Chemical areas . In addition, all businesses obtained a positive operating cash flow, which for the Group as a whole amounted to a total of 1,030 million euros.

Likewise, Repsol highlights that in the first three months of the year has managed to reduce its net debt by 326 million euros (representing 5%) to reach 6,452 million. For its part, liquidity reached 8,456 million euros, which represents 2.93 times the short-term maturities. Additionally, in order to strengthen its financial position, the company closed in March an issue of subordinated bonds for an amount of 750 million euros.

By business areas, Exploration and Production contributed a result of 327 million euros, compared to 90 million in the same period of the previous year (+ 263%) thanks to the combination of cost adjustments, the optimization of operations and the rebound in the average prices of hydrocarbons compared to the first three months of 2020, which was 22% for Brent and 35% for Henry Hub. In addition, it achieved that its realization prices for crude oil and gas performed better than the international benchmark, with an increase between January and March of 23.4% in the case of crude oil and 41.7% for gas.

The area Industrial, for its part, achieved a result of 73 million euros, compared to 288 million in the first three months of 2020 (-74.6%), weighed down by the negative impact of Covid-19 on international market conditions. Specifically, the Chemicals, Wholesale and Gas Trading areas performed positively, while Refining obtained low margins and suffered from stoppages in activity. In addition, the area is being affected by the uncertainty generated by the energy transition, which will require projects and investments to meet the decarbonization objectives.

The area of Commercial and Renewables reached a result of 101 million, which is -16.5% less than the 121 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. More in detail, restrictions on mobility and the effects of the storm Filomena at the beginning of the year contracted by 14 % demand for the quarter at service stations, although Renewables and Generation performed well, as did Lubricants, which increased their volumes sold.

An oil company in transformation

Repsol is in a moment of transformation after presenting its strategic plan for the period 2021-2025 in which it foresees investments of 18,300 million euros of which 30% (5.5 billion) will go to low-carbon initiatives. The new plan sets emission reduction targets, with a reduction in carbon intensity of 12% by 2025, 25% by 2030 and 50% by 2040

In this sense, during the first months of the year Repsol has launched various industrial transformation initiatives that allow it to advance in the energy transition and collaborate in the economic recovery of the country. 40% of investments in the quarter went to low-carbon projects.

In this sense, Repsol made progress during the quarter in transforming its industrial facilities into hubs multi-energy, capable of generating products with a low, zero or even negative carbon footprint. The company will invest in its refineries in Spain to move towards decarbonisation. Investments in Cartagena stand out, where work began for the construction of the new advanced biofuels plant, the first of its kind in Spain. In recent months, the 3D design of the facilities has begun, making progress in engineering projects and in the purchase of new equipment.In 2021, 66 of the 188 million euros planned for the project will be invested.

In relation to renewable hydrogen, a clear growth vector for the company, at the end of January 2021 the H24All project, a consortium led by Repsol to develop Europe’s first 100 MW alkaline electrolyzer plant. Likewise, Petronor and Repsol lead another relevant hydrogen project, the Basque Hydrogen Corridor, BH2C, announced on February 22. More than 78 organizations participate in it, it will mean an investment of more than 1,300 million euros until 2026

Repsol has a portfolio of 31 projects, with a total associated investment of 6,359 million euros, in the framework of the calls for expressions of interest for European Next Generation funds carried out by the Government.

Apple will block the ‘apps’ that offer incentives in exchange for letting them track us | Lifestyle

The new application tracking transparency policy that Apple has released with iOS 14.5 is turning the market of the apps that focus a good part of their business on the mining and commercialization of our data for advertising purposes, or to sell them later to third-party companies interested in our tastes, habits, etc.

And it is that by putting in the user’s hand the control of what a app may or may not do, it is bringing down the streets of bitterness those who have spent years turning their business models on data that is increasingly difficult to collect. So in the face of such a tessitura, what do you think they are thinking of doing? Indeed, reward us in some way for letting our information tap remain open.

Apple will ban those practices

And it is logical to think that Given the situation that is presented, many companies are thinking of encouraging users in some way to invite them to accept the tracking made by the applications of our activity. But given the mere possibility that this phenomenon proliferates, from Apple they have already announced that they will systematically block all those apps that they resort to this strategy, or that they show a message that can be misleading.

Tracking lock message. Apple

According those of Cupertino, “the monitoring of applications is a delicate subject. In some cases, it might make sense to display personalized messages that clearly describe the benefits tracking “, but they will never allow that alert to” confuse or mislead people. Sometimes users tap quickly to dismiss alerts without reading them. A custom screen that leverages those behaviors to influence choices will result in rejection of alerts. the App Store Review “.

In addition to that attempt to get us confused by touching the button we do not want, leaving the mining open again, Apple wants to combat all those practices that may incentivize accepting that tracking with some kind of benefit, inexpensive or otherwise: “There are various banned custom message designs that will lead to rejection. Examples are offering incentives, displaying a screen that looks like a request, displaying an image of the alert, and making annotations on the screen behind the alert.” , so they advise the developers that “do not offer incentives for granting the request. You cannot offer compensation to people for granting their permission, and you cannot retain functionality or content or render your app unusable until people allow you to track them. “

The weather in Valencia: The rain leaves a layer of mud

The cars and sidewalks of Valencia were filled with mud yesterday due to the haze. | EDUARDO RIPOLL

A good part of the province of Valencia woke up covered in mud yesterday after the rains in the early hours of Saturday, which were accompanied by haze. A situation that according to the forecast of the Spanish Meteorological Agency (Aemet), may be repeated today and even extend to Alicante as well.

The rain leaves a layer of mud


Already last February the Valencian Community experienced a similar episode, when the arrival of a bag of suspended dust from the Sahara desert coincided with a storm that, when discharging, dyed everything on which it fell red.

As it happened then, yesterday the car washes made their particular August, and from early in the morning you could see queues of drivers waiting their turn next to their vehicle full of mud.

For today, Aemet announces cloudy skies or covered with rainfall, largely in the form of showers, which can be locally strong and accompanied by storms and hail in the interior of Castelló. The northern part of this province is where there is a greater probability of this type of rainfall, which could also affect the northern half of the province of Valencia and Alicante, although in these last two provinces only during the early morning.

For its part, Aemet warns again about the possible presence of haze in high areas of Valencia and Alicante, which could turn into mud accompanying the precipitation, which it foresees could fall again at dawn.

The minimum temperatures will continue unchanged or slightly rising and the maximum temperatures will continue to decline in Castelló and to rise in Valencia and north of Alicante. The thermal amplitude will mark the day in the Valencian Community, since according to Aemet it will oscillate from the 7 degrees of minimum of Morella and the 25 of maximum of Orihuela.

On the north and central coast, the wind will blow moderately from the north, tending to a light wind from the east; in the rest, a loose variable. The Spanish Meteorological Agency foresees the strongest gusts in Denia, where it will blow from the southern component and could reach 19 kilometers per hour.

The weather in Murcia: The storm leaves a deceased when a lightning strike and minor floods fall on him

An agricultural worker died yesterday after being struck by lightning on a farm in the district of Balsapintada, in Fuente Álamo. The victim, a 45-year-old Moroccan, was picking lettuce in the area, with another twenty companions, when a loud crash was heard and the crew saw him collapse. Upon the arrival of the health services, according to sources close to the case, the man was still alive, but due to the great burns suffered, he finally died.

It was the worker’s colleagues who, at around 1:46 p.m., alerted 112 that he had been struck by lightning. An ambulance approached the farm, near the A-30 highway, whose health workers tried in vain to save the life of the agricultural laborer. The body of the deceased was transferred to the Institute of Legal Medicine for autopsy. The case was reported to the Institute for Occupational Health and Safety.

A DAY OF RAIN

20,6

liters per square meter were collected yesterday in the Campo de Cartagena area, according to the State Meteorological Agency.

20,2

were the liters that fell in Torre Pacheco, the second most affected municipality.

12

liters per square meter were counted in San Javier, which saw some of its streets flooded with water.

The death of this worker was the blackest episode of a day marked by the yellow level warning that the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) issued due to heavy rains. The precipitations were primed especially with the zone of Cartagena and Torre Pacheco, where yesterday the greater amounts were registered: 20.6 and 20.2 liters per square meter, respectively, according to the data provided by the Aemet.

In Cartagena, the drop of twenty liters per square meter in about an hour forced the RM-E18 road between La Guía and Pozo Los Palos to be cut, which quickly flooded, according to municipal sources. Apart from this measure, taken as a precaution and which was revoked before sunset, there were no major incidents. The works carried out in sensitive points such as El Albujón, and the cleaning and sanitation measures to avoid dragging on the Mar Menor coastline took effect.

In Murcia, the rainfall registered during the day forced the Torre Abellán road in Cabezo de Torres to be cut off to traffic, according to sources from the Local Police.

In Alhama, a strong waterspout left, in just 25 minutes, up to 23 liters of rain per square meter. The Ginés Campos avenue was flooded in some sections, which led the Local Police to have to cut traffic temporarily, diverting it to another area. The situation returned to normal when the water was drained. The underpass next to the Renfe station was also flooded and traffic was cut off.

The storm leaves more than 20 liters per square meter in less than half an hour in Alhama

In Yecla, the rain was felt with some force in the morning, but the nine liters per square meter recorded did not cause incidents. Some roads, such as Calle España, were flooded. The storm affected other parts of the Region, but without incident.

The fall of Woodford is another element in favor of passive management | Opinion

Neil Woodford believed himself the British answer to Warren Buffett. That ego helped the fund manager become one of the best-known stock pickers in the country, but it also caused his spectacular fall in 2019. A new book shows how changes in the UK pension scheme, combined with weak regulation, they left British savers exposed.

Built on a Lie: The Rise and Fall of Neil Woodford and the Fate of Middle England’s Money (Built on a lie: the rise of Neil Woodford and the fate of English middle class money) by Owen Walker traces the asset manager’s rise from relatively humble beginnings in a suburban London town. It owes its fame to two great bets. In the internet boom of the late 1990s, he avoided tech because he didn’t understand their stratospheric valuations. When the bubble burst, his High Income fund outperformed. Years later, he made a similar call to avoid bank stocks, before the financial crisis.

These successes made investors trust him with their money. The fees allowed him to embrace a lavish lifestyle, buying a mansion that was once owned by Formula 1 mogul Flavio Briatore. It also encouraged him to leave Invesco Perpetual, one of Britain’s best-known investment houses, and start his own company.

Investors who followed him avidly knew little about the risks he was taking with their money. This vulnerability was the result of radical changes in the British pension market. Walker, journalist for the FT, explains how the closure of company pension plans based on final salary forced savers to manage their own pensions. Faced with thousands of products, they relied on financial advisers, many of whom were loyal to Woodford, as well as the “best buy” lists of groups like Hargreaves Lansdown. The £ 7bn wealth manager supported Woodford to the end.

Woodford Investment Management’s strategy, which at its peak was overseeing £ 18bn, was to invest in riskier unlisted companies, along with large holdings in dividend-paying top-tier companies such as Imperial Brands. But seemingly strong firms like Provident Financial, the home-based lender that was once on the FTSE 100, disappointed. By the time Woodford’s Equity Income fund was discontinued in 2019, only 19 of the 72 companies it owned three years earlier were showing positive returns.

The lack of liquidity of Woodford’s funds hastened its demise. When the Kent County Council, one of his loyal customers, withdrew his £ 263 million investment, Woodford had no cash to meet the demand. While savers believed they had instant access to their money, their unlisted holdings were difficult to sell, and their listed positions had grown so large that they could not be liquidated without further plunging the price.
This flaw, which goes far beyond Woodford, is the lie of the book’s title. When former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney was asked at a parliamentary appearance about the implosion, he explained that the problem could be systemic for much of the asset management industry.

Walker believes that regulators share some of the blame. The Financial Conduct Authority cleared Woodford’s new venture in record time, despite the fact that it faced an open investigation into its Invesco operations. The regulator also allowed it to use outsourcing firm Capita Asset Services as a kind of external regulator, or Authorized Corporate Director, despite the fact that the manager was also the largest shareholder in the provider’s parent company.

Internal checks and balances also failed. Woodford planned to invest $ 250 million in US bioscience firm Evofem, even though he had only met twice in London with a company executive. When Equity Income was about to exceed the limit of 10% of assets invested in unlisted, it put pressure on some of those companies to issue their shares on the opaque Guernsey Stock Exchange.

Woodford’s disappearance is also another nail in the coffin of active management. The growth of cheap index funds has put pressure on active managers to show that they can add value. His successful counter bets seemed to justify higher commissions. But his clients would have fared much better if they had entrusted their pension funds to an indexed product.

Walker juxtaposes the lifestyle of managers with the pensioners whose money they manage. Woodford spent nearly £ 14 billion on a 400-hectare retreat in the Cotswolds and tested a Ferrari on the manufacturer’s private track. Meanwhile, the owner of a bed and breakfast The 67-year-old lost part of her savings and has to continue working.

But Woodford doesn’t seem to think there is no remedy. In February it revealed its plans to launch a new fund in Jersey, managing only institutional money. But with the results of an FCA review of its rulings still unpublished, it seems unlikely that it will return to the fray. The best he can hope for is that investors and regulators will learn the lessons from his failures.

England once again allows meetings and outdoor sports

London, March 29 (EFE) .- England allows outdoor meetings, including in private gardens, of up to six people or two homes, as well as sports abroad, in a new step of the de-escalation started on March 8.

Among other measures to soften the restrictions, weddings with up to six people will also be authorized again, within the roadmap to get out of the strict confinement that England has experienced since the beginning of this year and that keeps closed, for example, all non-essential trades.

The British Government emphasizes the importance of not holding indoor meetings yet, with a new slogan: Hands, Face, Distance and Open Air.

England – the rest of the regions of the United Kingdom, such as Scotland or Wales, have their own de-escalation calendar – also lifts the order to stay at home and allows movements within the country, although it maintains the recommendation to work from home as long as possible.

Despite everything, Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged all citizens to maintain precautions, due to the increase in cases in continental Europe and the new variants of the coronavirus that threaten the success of the British vaccination program, which yesterday reached the figure 30 million first doses administered.

In a message on the occasion of this new milestone in the de-escalation, Johnson expressed his hope that today a “great British summer of sport” will open, while calling on everyone to continue to respect the rules and get vaccinated as soon as they receive the invitation to do so.

The next step of the deconfinement will take place on April 12, when the terraces of “pubs” and restaurants are reopened, as well as non-essential shops and businesses such as hairdressers.

Wales will allow local holidays from Saturday, while Scotland will end the stay-at-home order on Friday, on other roadmaps set by regional authorities.

The British Government trusts that thanks to its vaccination campaign – which will be interrupted in April due to supply problems – on June 21 it will be able to put an end to the de-escalation completely.

According to the figures released this Sunday, in the last 24 hours 19 people died in the United Kingdom because of the covid, to bring the total to 126,592, while 3,862 new infections were confirmed (there are already 4.33 million since the beginning of the pandemic). EFE

Donald Trump: what is the fortune of the United States tycoon – USA – International


Becoming, in January 2017, the first billionaire president of the United States. That is one of the many reasons why, for better or for worse, Donald Trump will go down in history.

(Also read: Trump will launch his own social network, according to a former adviser)

In March 2016, almost a year before coming to the White House, he had a fortune amounting to 4.5 billion dollars. Today, when he no longer holds what is considered one of the most powerful positions in the world, the exact figure of his assets is not clear, among other things, because The Trump Organization, his private company, is not obliged to publish statements financial

(Plus: Story of the 126-room house where Donald Trump lives)

However, there are estimates. One of the most reliable is the one presented by the reputed magazine specialized in economics Forbes, which this week updated its data and revealed that the former president would currently have a net worth valued at $ 2.5 billion.

That figure, while considerably lower than what he registered before he became president, places Trump at the 339th on the list of the 400 richest people in America and in the position 1,001 of the billionaires of the world.

(You may be interested: Trump and Melania would have been vaccinated before leaving the White House)

In addition, it represents a recovery of 400 million dollars, because in April 2020, at the beginning of the pandemic, that magazine calculated the wealth of the tycoon at about 2,100 million dollars.

Forbes explains that the core of Trump’s fortune “is tied to a half dozen buildings in and around downtown Manhattan, in New York City. “He also highlights that he is” the owner of golf courses and a winery “and that” he has licensed companies around the world under his name. “

The Trump Tower skyscraper in New York is the headquarters of the Trump Organization. It has 58 floors and was built in the early 1980s.

The US presidency, a bad deal?

Donald Trump began working for his father, Fred, who developed low-cost housing in Brooklyn and Queens in New York. Today, keeping that lineage, trusts his two oldest sons, Don Jr. and Eric, to run the family business.

In fact, it was known that, while he was in the presidency, the two of them were the ones who took care of everything.

But it was precisely having become president of the United States that marked a before and after in his considerable fortune. According to the Billionaires Index of Bloomberg, Trump’s net worth dropped to $ 2.3 billion (about $ 700 million less) during on mandate.

In the crisis that caused the covid-19 pandemic, its economic empire has also been affected, as office buildings, hotels and resorts of the Trump brand, as well as its fleet of airplanes and golf courses, have lost income and its value has fallen.

Specialized media explain that commercial real estate accounts for about three-quarters of your net worth. However, in the wake of the pandemic, Bloomberg estimated a 26% drop in the value of its main commercial properties.

In addition, its fleet of aircraft, which includes a Boeing 757, has seen a reduction in value over the years. From seven aircraft valued at around $ 59 million in 2015, its fleet was reduced to five, all of which were valued at around $ 6.5 million in 2020.

But perhaps the most accurate hit is an ongoing investigation into your financial affairs and your family business.

During his tenure, Trump’s finances were repeatedly the focus of attention, among other things, for the secrecy regarding the amount of personal and corporate taxes he pays.

Donald Trump also invested in casinos, one of the emblematic ones is the Trump Taj Mahal, in Atlanta. The mogul sold the place in 2009.

In fact, last February the Supreme Court of that country ordered him to surrender his tax returns and other financial records to New York prosecutors.

This investigation began in 2018 to examine the role of the Trump Organization in secret money payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign to two women who said they had had affairs with the tycoon.

With the decision, he is not directly obligated to give his tax returns, but to his accounting firm Mazars, which has handled the tycoon’s finances for years. Nor does it mean that the statements of the former president today will be declassified before the public. But the relevant thing is that Trump did lose a tough legal battle that he fought for years so that his tax return was not known.

(Also read: Biden plans to run for reelection in 2024)

Since his presidential campaign, the billionaire has vowed to voluntarily publish his tax returns, as all American presidents have done in recent periods.

However, unlike its predecessors, Trump never released the records.

The former president’s financial future is still uncertain. They talk about various options to recover economically, ranging from a possible book with memories of his mandate (a strategy that worked for other ex-presidents, such as the Obamas and Bill Clinton) to the creation of a news channel or a networking platform. social.
