Bernie Sanders: Trump’s Tax Avoidance Is Why Americans Are Angry With Corrupt System

Bernie Sanders: Trump’s Tax Avoidance Is Why Americans Are Angry With Corrupt System
“It’s outrageous.”
Elise Foley 10/02/2016 10:24 am ET Immigration & Politics Reporter, The Huffington Post

The ability of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and other wealthy people to avoid paying taxes is “exactly why so many millions of Americans are frustrated, they are angry, they are disgusted at what they see is a corrupt political system in this country,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Trump goes around and says ‘Hey, I’m worth billions, I’m a successful businessman, but I don’t pay any taxes. But you, you make 15 bucks an hour, you pay the taxes, not me,’” said Sanders, who supports Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “That is why people are angry and want real change in this country.”

1. AND how insane is it that Trump complains endlessly about our national debt???

 

Corrupt system indeed, and we have hypocrites like Trump running around showing the problem.

2. You could have added, at the same time he doesn't contribute anything toward paying

off the national debt.
