4. "The figures include children, the retired, & Mr. Trump the Republicans 'biggest' freeloader.

"The figures include children, the retired and others who do not participate in the labour force."

8. I'm retired and pay plenty of taxes

including income tax.

I wonder if his "loss" is bogus. There are a lot of tricks available to avoid taxes because businesses are able to deduct nearly everything they do from their income. If the businesses spend money on Trump's personal expenses (decorating Trump tower for example) he should be paying taxes on that money, but it would be easy to hide that sort of thing on one's tax returns.

5. Same bullshit sent to me on Facebook and I replied

 

1/2 of Americans made income under the federal levels...and to compare $20,000 income and no taxes to $100s of millions and no taxes is complete bullshit...and than to brag about and belittle those of us who pay taxes as not being smart or we are suckers....Then add in trumps demand that our NATO allies to pay their fair share when he pays nothing is so fucking hypocritical...

6. It's a dog whistle about BS "welfare queens". Donald J tRump is a Debt Queen.

Unfortunately for Donald, his tweet stinks for the middle class and working poor who do pay taxes.

Children don't pay taxes, so yeah, half the country doesn't pay taxes.

7. He means non-white people don't pay enough

White men shouldn't have to pay any taxes in Trump's America.
