Over the weekend, the New York Times—which recently endorsed Hillary Clinton for president—illegally obtained Donald Trump’s 1995 income tax documents and then consequently published his returns on Saturday night.

In the 3 pages that were published by the New York Times:

“The pages were mailed last month to Susanne Craig, a reporter at The Times who has written about Mr. Trump’s finances.  The documents were the first page of a New York State resident income tax return, the first page of a New Jersey nonresident tax return and the first page of a Connecticut nonresident tax return.”

Donald Trump’s campaign issued a statement following the publishing:

“The only news here is that the more than 20-year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained, a further demonstration that the New York Times, like establishment media in general, is an extension of the Clinton campaign, the Democratic Party and their global special interests.”

But what does the New York Times care about meddling in other people’s business through illegal means?

Let’s forget about the illegal acquirement of the tax returns for a moment and focus on the article and their whole thesis.

The biggest takeaway from the Times’ story is that he reported a $916 million loss, which “could” have allowed him to avoid paying any federal income taxes for the next 18 years.

The New York Times’ entire point to their entire article is that Donald Trump may, or may not have, avoided paying any federal income taxes.

There are many, many more taxes other than federal income taxes.

The Trump campaign continued with their statement:

 “[Trump is] a highly-skilled businessman who has a fiduciary responsibility to his business, his family and his employees to pay no more tax than legally required.

 “That being said, Mr. Trump has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in property taxes, sales and excise taxes, real estate taxes, city taxes, state taxes, employee taxes and federal taxes, along with very substantial charitable contributions. 

Mr. Trump knows the tax code far better than anyone who has ever run for president and he is the only one that knows how to fix it.”

So let’s just say it’s true that Trump avoided paying taxes from 1995 to 2013 – the New York Times is indicting him on something he was well within his rights to do.

The hilarity behind this indictment – and maybe they shot themselves in the foot by doing so – but remind me, wasn’t Bill Clinton President of the United States in 1995?

So let’s elect his wife, Hillary Clinton, to solve the issue.

Trump is the only one who knows how to fix it.

Chris Christie was quick to aid Donald Trump, who appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and said:

 “What it shows is what an absolute mess the federal tax code is and that’s why Donald Trump is the person best positioned to fix it.

 There’s no one who has shown more genius in their way to maneuver around the tax code and to rightfully use the laws to do that and he’s already promised in his tax plan to change many of these special interest loopholes and get rid of them so you don’t have this kind of situation.”

Maybe the most ironic part of this story is that the New York Times also avoided paying federal taxes in 2014.

Yet, when Donald Trump might have done it, the Times is screaming bloody murder in the streets.

This story is just the New York Times perpetuating their liberal agenda for their candidate.
