The Trump hating New York Times has published an article claiming that Trump paid no federal taxes in 11 of the 18 years reviewed by the newspaper, and only paid $750 of personal taxes in 2016 and 2017.
I do not trust the Times. Perhaps the reporting is accurate, perhaps it is not. For the sake of argument, however, I will assume that the story is true. But whatever tax Trump paid, he paid what the law required of him. His tax lawyers took advantage of every possible break. What about you? Did you pay more to the tax collectors than was required of you? I doubt it. Neither did Joe Biden, Kamala Harris or Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump is no miser. Over the course of decades he has given millions of dollars to various charitable causes and to individuals. As President, he has consistently donated his entire salary to different organizations within and without the Federal government.
Do not blame Trump for paying so little in income tax. Blame our Byzantine tax laws.
