Tax March Statement on President Trump’s Taxes: The President Had Plenty of Corruption and Tax Avoidance to Hide
“Today’s revelations are precisely why Tax March has fought and organized for years to make sure the American people know who Donald Trump works for – himself and his wealthy friends.
“Trump’s own tax records show a poor businessman, years of tax avoidance, questionable side-dealing, and outright corruption while in office. No wonder he and his family fought so hard to keep us all in the dark.
“Our tax code is rigged for the wealthy and well-connected. Trump paid just $750 dollars in federal income taxes for 2016 and 2017 – and $0 in 11 of the 18 years analyzed by the New York Times. He is the embodiment of a corrupt and unjust system, where the wealthiest and big corporations avoid taxes, while hard-working Americans foot the tax bill.
Millions of Americans are facing an unprecedented pandemic and severe economic crisis. While ordinary Americans struggle, Trump and his wealthy cronies manipulate the system to increase their bottom line. The American people deserve better. It’s time to fix our broken tax system, invest in middle and working class families, and build an economy that truly works for everyone, not just the wealthy few.
“Tax the rich. Tax Donald Trump.”
