The author wants everyone to think Trump hasn’t paid taxes. He has. He has used the tax system to his advantage. That in and of itself is a cost, that money goes back into circulation. So while it didn’t go into the hands of big government, it still served a purpose. Yes, tax loopholes could be looked at. I would love to see a journalist tax, since they are using the system to their advantage. OH yeah, Hillary is a real saint.
