In Akron, Clinton Tackles Trump on Tax Practices and Policy

After the New York Times report that implied that Trump has most likely avoided income tax legitimately for a length of up-to 18 years, he expressed his discontentment with the income tax laws siting their inequity; this strategically redirected attention and consideration from the New York Times report.

"But here's the thing", he continued. How about real estate taxes?

AFSCME also estimated if Trump paid his taxes without special breaks, his federal taxes would be enough to pay 2,300 highway maintenance workers, or 1,765 FBI agents.

Again, Eric Trump responded that "we" pay a tremendous amount of taxes and that the documents will be released "when the audit is over". "But what kind of genius loses $1 billion in a single year?" After The New York Times revealed that Trump might not have paid taxes for the last 18 years, the campaign has been quick to spin the story into a positive one for the #Republican nominee.

"Yes, and beyond taxes, we also employ tens and tens and tens of thousands of people", Trump said, before accusing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton of having "lived off the government" her entire life. "I'd like to eat it with some fava beans and a nice chianti'". "In other words, Trump was taking from America with both hands and leaving the rest of us with the bill".

After Bash pressed him several more times about federal income tax, Eric Trump said, "Of course, yes, absolutely", before repeating the same line: "My father pays a tremendous amount of tax". "We as a company, pay a tremendous amount of tax".


Third, Trump has suggested he would tax the income of businesses like his at rates as low as 15 percent. This report has brought Trump's charges regarding tax under investigation.

Trump's campaign said Monday the comment was being misconstrued. The only reason we know that Trump took a $916 million loss in 1995 that he could have used to wipe out almost two decades of income tax payments is because someone sent three pages from Trump's 1995 tax records to The New York Times.

There has been no indication that Donald Trump violated any IRS regulations.

According to the CNN/ORC poll, which surveyed more than 1,500 adults via telephone from September 28 to October 2, Clinton held a 51 to 45 percent advantage over Trump among likely voters, and 50 to 44 percent among registered voters.

"I'm working for you now, I'm not working for Trump", he said.

"He abuses his power, games the system and puts his own interests ahead of the country's", Clinton said from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For an on-the-spot question, Eric did a tremendous job of tremendously defending his father's tremendous tax returns on a tremendous night.
