Donald Trump, “Our tax code is ‘broken’ I will work to fix it”
Donald Trump said America’s tax code is “broken,” and because of his experience using it to his advantage in his business dealings, he knows how to fix it.
“Fixing our broken tax code is one of the main reasons I am running for President,” the GOP presidential nominee said during a campaign rally Monday in Pueblo, Colorado.
“It is unfair and so complex that very few people understand it. Fortunately, I understand it.”
Donald Trump’s comments came after a NY-T’s report over the weekend that claimed he lost nearly $1-B in Y 1995, which might have allowed him to legally avoid paying taxes for 18 years.
He told the Colorado audience the tax laws are not fair to Americans.
“The unfairness of the tax laws is unbelievable,” he said. “It’s something I’ve been talking about for a long time. Despite, frankly, being a big beneficiary of the laws, I’m working for you now. I’m not working for Trump. Believe me.
“I understand the tax laws better than almost anyone, which is why I am one who can truly fix them.”
Donald Trump said the real estate atmosphere of the early 1990’s was worse than the recession of Y 2008 and “almost as bad as the Great Depression of 1929.”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that Donald Trump’s tax situation from the 1990’s shows he has the knowledge to revamp the system and make it better for everyone.
