Donald Trump is in trouble again about his tax. The New York Times said his 1995 tax returns show a $916-million business loss. This means he avoided nearly a billion dollars in income tax over 19 years. Despite this, Mr Trump constantly criticizes the tax system for being unfair. The Times said the system is rigged, "in the favor of people like him, and against regular people…who earn money, pay income tax on it, and financially support the country."

Mr Trump has spent years attacking people for not paying enough tax, including President Obama. Trump's supporters say he has done nothing illegal. One called him a "genius" for not paying tax and likened him to Britain's WWII leader Winston Churchill. Mr Trump said he knew USA tax laws better than anyone who had ever run for president and was the only one who could fix them." He told Hillary Clinton that he was "smart" for not paying taxes.
