    Default Trump's Taxes: Are you kidding me?

    Ok, so let me get this straight. Donald Trump lost a lot of money in casino business in 1995. He spread these losses over many years as the tax code allows. He then comes back from the brink and rebuilds his business.

    And yet he is being criticized?

    What was he supposed to do, send money he did not owe into the rat hole?

    What demagoguery on the part of the main stream media ( New York Times, Washington Post, mSNbc, CNN, ad
    Nauseum ) !!!

    He had an obligation to his business to minimize his taxes. To do otherwise would be irresponsible.
    Have any of Hillary's rich donors ever taken advantage of these tax write offs? That's an investigation that those media outlets surely won't be delving into.

    What a crock!

    He's not running as a dem. If he were no one would care. He's damned no matter. Problem is he is
    completely incapable of dealing with this message. He has chosen not to release his taxes, yet he lets the dems control his message. Typical republican messaging. Run and hide then act shocked when someone else has controlled your message.

    Shocked ��

    The part that annoys me is that there are simple ways to explain this that most people could understand. He risked his money and lost. If he lost $900 million, other people got it and eventually paid taxes on it. If companies couldn't do that, why would they risk any money at all? There's also that Laffer Curve thing.

    I agree that he is not controlling the message. The economy is a major issue. He should be able to run circles around the Dems and tie them up in knots.
    Ya can't argue with figures. Two half nuthins is a whole nuthin.

    I like I imagine most people ask my accountant to try and make my contribution as much as possible.

    He should have released his taxes months ago and it would have been squashed by now.
    All that is needed for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.

    Regardless of his net worth I thought EVERYONE desired to pay as little in taxes as possible. I must have missed something...

    Saw this and thought it was fairly on point:

    "HILLARY: I mean, what kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a year?!"

    Uh Hillary, someone called a heavy investor during one of the greatest financial downturns we have ever seen... But have all of them come back from that point? I know one who has... Besides, your buddy Soros lost that much in much less time, he must be a REAL idiot.

    I know, the "business" you're involved in (influence peddling disguised as "informational speeches") has a long history of being recession proof. Maybe you should look at a balance sheet and learn what it takes to have expenses that aren't paid for by the taxpayers so that you can profit, just a thought.

    PS, Hillary, you do understand that the tradition of candidates revealing their taxes was because there is the concept of impropriety when you work for the people yet somehow are making MILLIONS of dollars. That's why people want to see POLITICIANS tax returns.

    A private businessman never lived off a government check so they were truly only beholding to their shareholders, their families, and themselves.
