Americans Angry At Trump For Paying Less Taxes Than Everyone In This Country

The New York Times recently shared a blockbuster story in which it revealed that President Trump paid only $750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017 and he didn’t pay any for 10 of the 15 years before he entered the White House.

According to Forbes, though, Trump is worth more than $2.5 billion, so these low figures are rather shocking.

The article says that his portfolio, which includes golf properties, commercial buildings, and branding businesses, is worth an estimated $3.66 billion before debt, which comes to around $2.5 billion.

The $750 he paid in taxes is what a single adult with no children would pay if they earned $17.900 in 2017.

The tax payments the President made provide even further evidence of his duplicitous business dealings, and proves that the system treats billionaires differently than working people. To him, though, this is an indicator of his intelligence.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Sunday that Trump contributed less to funding our communities than waitresses and undocumented immigrants, and that it proves that Trump has never cared for our country more than he cares for himself.

The news about Trump’s taxes inspired thousands of Americans to follow her example and shared the amount they pay in taxes and how hard they earn their money.
