    Trump, Christie, Giuliani, etc: "Trump is a genius. He's getting the rest of us to "Make America Great Again!". (And by the way, referring to him as a "genius", that's basically referring to the rest of us as common folk as "idiots". That includes you, Trump supporters.)

    Trump said, "We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated."

    He loves those who do no understand tax laws. He loves the people who are reactionary and believe everything he says. He has manipulated the minds of his followers.

    The rich are the only one's who are upset with Trump. He has exposed their world and they are upset.

    A genius for losing a billion dollars in just one year? Trump and his organization weren't that big. Not genius. Hype, yes.

    "Christie, Giuliani: If Trump didn't pay taxes, he's 'genius...", following that logic, if Trump is a genius for not paying taxes, what are we, real Taxpayers? Are we all loosers? O don't think so, I think we build a better control when we pay our fair share of taxes.

    Trump's wealth was created by large tax loopholes and taking advantage of the 2008 housing crash.

    A near billion dollar business failure, followed by a dozen or more smaller failures in the ensuing decades.

    As the old joke goes, "he inherited a large fortune and turned it into a small fortune."

    And these losses are the reason American banks will no longer finance his schemes and he has massive investment from Russian and Chinese interests.

    We need to see his current taxes to find out what he is hiding.

    The IRS never seems to buy that I have mismanaged my money as an excuse to not pay my taxes. I guess it helps to have the system rigged in your favor right Donald?

    This is exactly why we need a federal flat tax for EVERYONE! So simple and so fair! It goes like this;Gross income X 15%= your taxes whether your income is $1 or $100 million! Our present tax code is a uncomprehedable mess and this proves it! It would eliminate so many problems!

    A billion dollar loss does not a genius make.
    Trumps most valuable piece of real estate is his tax attorney's office. I don't even mind that trump doesn't pay tax, so much as I mind his claim that we should elect him because he knows how to work the system and therefore how to fix it. He may know how to work the system, or who to hire that does, but he's got no motive to fix it. He's flat out bald faced lying.
