Stop me if you've heard this one, Diane -- Donald Trump found out there was an agricultural deduction for farmers in New Jersey, so he decided to take advantage of it and keeps goats on his golf courses there to get out of paying income tax on those properties.
You can't make this stuff up.
Trump has made no secret that he uses every trick he can to "get away with murder" when it comes to avoiding paying taxes. And since he still hasn't released his tax returns, we can only speculate what could possibly turn up -- or not turn up, as the case may be. Because many people seem to think he's managed to pay little or no federal income tax at all.
Think about that for a second. The man who claims we don't do enough to support our men and women in uniform might not put his money where his mouth is when it comes to paying the taxes that fund our military and services for our veterans, or even our local police departments. The man who wants to "make America great again" and claims that only he can fix our nation's infrastructure problems might not actually spend a dime of his own when it comes to investing in roads and bridges.
Diane, if you believe in paying your fair share -- and that the Republican nominee for president should be accountable for whether or not he pays his -- add your name today to tell Trump to release his tax returns:
Deputy Communications Director
