Here's what I am trying to understand:

The personal income tax laws back then gave Trump an advantage and, likely, placed folks like you and me at a disadvantage.


How did Trump (saving his money) place me at a disadvantage?

What he makes/saves has no bearing on me whatsoever.

Because, duh! If they couldn't steal it from him then you can't have it!

And so...your point about Trump is what?

That he is a low life conman.

How much did Trump pay? You do NOT know. It is all assumption and what happens when you assume. It has happened each time he has said something. The DNC uses confidential sources or unnamed people for the quotes and then makes up something that is newsworthy but not true.

Also, if Trump was president he could not use the loopholes he has at any time.

These are illegally obtained documents from the IRS. Just like the server and the emails, if it was you or me we would be in prison or hiding with the Russians. For the Clintons it is another day on the job.

That is an opinion. Means nothing. Do you not claim any exemptions on your taxes?

Either you didn't understand what you read, or you are just trying to spin what was written.

Trump's actions may not have had any direct impact on you, although, it might be argued that the slack he took because of the way the tax laws were written, would had to have been taken up by those, like you and me, one way (higher/more taxes) or another (reduced/eliminated government services).

The point, which you have conveniently chosen to not address, is that you believe Trump will work against his own self-interest to change the laws that he has profited from to better serve your interests.

If he were to do so, he would betray the qualities of good business acumen that you and his supporters tout as one of his best qualities.

If he, on the other hand, exercises those "successes-oriented qualities, you, and the vast majority of the rest of us, stand to do no better than we have so far; in fact, we may find ourselves in ever more dire straits.

Only those that are necessary to file my taxes. I remember what paying taxes was really like so paying this percentage is a joke compared to back then.

I do know what he didn't pay in 1995. I also ASSUME he didn't pay going way back to the 70's.

Ever think because of people like Trump dodging taxes your taxes are higher then If he paid them?.
It must be great to be rich enough to dodge taxes but I think we should all pay then taxes wouldn't be as high.

He didn't "dodge" anything. He used the law.

My taxes aren't based on if a wealthy person paid or not.

My taxes are based on the inherent greed of government.

Of course nothing illegal has been done. The 1% has been buying policies for decades. Multiple tax loopholes are among their purchases. One set of laws for them, and another set for the rest of us plebs.

If he have said he would shut those loophole down I would think better of him.
You all think he will be fighting for you all? I bet If he gets in his fortune increases ten fold...maybe building the wall.
But I do understand you have the worst choices for president ever but the blind faith people are showing.....you are not asking any questions about Trump.
Will you all blindly follow him no matter what?.

People vote for politicians who make loopholes for the wealthy.

The wealthy use the loopholes.

Then the politicians use the excuse of loopholes to raise taxes.


And people think I'm stupid.
