In a lame effort to score political points for Hillary Clinton, the New York Times published a portion of Donald Trump’s 1995 tax return. They’re now promoting the idea that Trump “could have” not paid taxes for decades. “Could have” doesn’t mean he did! 

Does anyone care that a man with a huge business empire might try and pay less taxes or work the tax system to his advantage? Isn’t that what most people do and it’s legal to do it! I would question Trump’s sanity if he begged to pay more taxes! 

The front pages of the tax returns themselves are essentially a non-issue, representing the 1995 gross business loss incurred by candidate Donald Trump who operates a massive conglomeration of business entities.

The anti-Trump political angle is easily identifiable within the extensive article use of: “could have”, “might be”, “may have”, phrases used throughout the woven narrative. Journalistic “narratives” are rarely based on facts.

The identified $916 million single year operating income loss is no different than current losses of Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and a host of other corporations and businesses.

Actually, Donald Trump’s 1995 loss is smaller than the operating loss the New York Times reported when it sold the Boston Globe in 2013 for a net loss of $1.03 billion.

The Times purchased the Boston Globe in ’93 for $1.1 billion and sold it in 2013 for $70 million, a loss of $1.03 billion. However, for some reason it’s doubtful the Times will publish their own 2013 tax returns. That doesn’t meet the political need.
