He said he tries to pay as little taxes as possible because the government wastes our money. Can't say I fault him for that either.

As the Church Lady would say, "how conveeenent." Yeah, Trump doesn't want waste -- and if we defund the government, we won't have waste.

What' worse, is that so many voters lack the critical thinking still to see through this tripe of an argument.

Thank you for once again, showing the ignorance of the left base who actually believe, taxes show wealth...

Is there a reason to change the 60 year precedent of releasing tax returns? Or, is it just inconvenient for a particular candidate and his supporters are shilling for him?

Precedent = guide, not a rule..

You keep using terminology that 4th graders use, but dont seem to comprehend them.

...."focused like a laser", too. And "BS Joe" Biden was going to do that with stimulus fund money.

What have you learned from 60 years of tax returns? Who wasn't elected because his taxes were not done right? Nobody. It is a non-issue. You are wasting your time. Now, if somebody diverts funds from a nonprofit to a for profit company owned by his pals that's another story, but I suspect you don't have much interest in that.

Would you prefer a president that pays no taxes? How about we all pay no taxes? Let's end the military, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, all of it. Let's applaud all the rich people who pay no taxes and aspire to be the poorest country with no military.

Are you good with ending Social Security and Medicare? One in five seniors receives Medicaid for senior care. Want to end that too? Because if the goal is to reduce our taxes to the point of non-existence, those checks are gone, the coverage is gone and, oh yes, schools are over. Less education, no jobs, no taxes but since there's no taxes, we don't really need an educated populace, do we?

You think you paid for all your Social Security and Medicare coverage? You didn't. The average Medicare recipient paid about a third of the coverage they are receiving. Current taxpayers are paying the rest. So, let's end paying taxes. I'm fine with it. I don't receive any government money and I'm sure the seniors won't mind getting jobs. As for medical coverage, call it Trump Panels, Ryan Vouchers or whatever you want but if there are no taxes, there is no medical coverage for seniors.

Republicans love to applaud the rich guy that pays no taxes. I just hope they love the result when they are the ones affected.
