    Trump is not a patriot, he is a deadbeat. Hardworking Americans pay the taxes to keep society running, but he shirks his responsibility? Patriots don't do that, but deadbeats do. He is like the guy who orders the most expensive meal when going out with friends, but when it comes to the check, he skips the tip, and others have to cover for him, so the waiter gets paid. Nobody likes these kind of guys, who don't pull their weight.

    What has he done for the country?
    -Paid no taxes
    -Got out of military service with bone spurs
    -Has his MAGA hats made in China
    -Stiffed hard working contractors on his losing real estate projects
    -Ran a sham university
    -Got tax payers to pay for his $70,000 combover
    -Took personal advantage of his "charities"

    But, he waves the flag and hates those "animal" immigrants. Newsflash, Mr. Trump, those immigrants pay taxes, unlike you. They are not deadbeats, and they love this country, unlike you. You only pretend to love it, by hugging the flag. And his followers fall for it.

    False, he paid taxes, more than illegals have.
    Only 1% of citizens have ever served in the military, how many did you serve?
    Yep, all the greatest slave labor is over there, just ask all the BLM celebrities calling for an end to their oppression while making millions of dollars by nike.
    Love the blank statement with no context.
    Ran 400 other successful businesses.
    Is that like the $2m family vacation the Obamas went on?
    Like the Clinton foundation or Biden's foundation? OMG, Trump is like a normal politician, and has accountants that know the loopholes. Im not shocked.

    Do forget the actual term of "Illegal" immigrants since you want to be completely honest I am sure right?

    "Only deadbeats pay no taxes"

    Are you talking about income taxes, or any taxes at all?


    I am certain that Trump pays taxes of various sorts quite frequently.

    If you are talking about income taxes only, there is an entire group at the lower end of the spectrum who pay no income taxes, in fact, they actually receive money from the treasury instead of paying into it. Is there a derogatory name that can be assigned to them?

    https://budgeting.thenest.com/people-tax-returns-pay-it-22401.html

    Taking advantage of the income tax laws probably wouldn't qualify one for deadbeat status. Both the democrats and the republicans are responsible for the legal loopholes that exist, and rich people have accountants who know how to minimize tax liability. Your beef shouldn't be with those who legally use the tax code to manage their taxes, we should be having issues with the lawmakers who made it possible.

    Did Trump do anything that violated the IRS tax laws? We will see, I suppose.

    No people who don't owe taxes also pay no taxes. There is no evidence that Trump did anything illegal on his returns. If you don't like the results, work to change the tax code.

    Shame. You just called the bottom (lower income) 40% of tax filers deadbeats.

    Thought it was the bottom 47%, maybe 51% now? Also, I guess all illegals are deadbeats as well.

    Ah, the "look over there" replies that avoid the orange elephant in the room. Sad and disgusting!

    "Whataboutism", aka, try to deflect from the fact that you were just called out as a hypocrite.

    This whole thing is a "look over there". Nothing illegal happened, why do you care?

    I think you'd have to admit that statement should be amended to say........ "There is no evidence that has been verified beyond a doubt Trump did anything illegal on his returns. Because there have been a number of reports he has cheated on his taxes.

    Dude, if you cannot see the crud underneath this iceberg of corruption, there is nothing to discuss with you.

    Your comment on illegals not paying taxes is so factually incorrect that it isn't even funny. Where do you think sales and property taxes go?

    Whether anything was done illegally is under investigation. Too early to say Trump was within the law.

    And, as you will certainly agree, -far- too early to say Trump was not within the law.
    Right?

    If the law was unfair then why didn’t Obama change it when he had a supermajority?

    Since he didn’t, too bad for you

    40, 47, or 50...... who's counting. Besides you shouldn't count much higher than 10 in front of liberal leftists.

    I’ll add to the list. He’s dismantled the EPA, leading to 700 scientists resigning in one year. Thing is, I know one of two things about this subject. The tax system is built to favor the rich, and offers write offs for the wealthy:
