Clinton Seizes Opportunity To Blast Trump On Taxes Comment

While watching last night’s debate, it was pretty easy to note which of the candidates remarks would be turned into talking points by their opponent. One of those moments came up when the discussion turned to whether or not Donald Trump would be releasing his tax returns anytime soon. An awkward exchange ensued, and Hillary Clinton implied that he may not be paying any taxes at all. Trump’s response? “That makes me smart,” he said.

It didn’t take too long for Clinton to jump all over that remark while out on the campaign trail today. Appearing at a rally in North Carolina, she assailed Trump for his statement while riling up her supporters.

“Last night, he actually bragged about gaming the system to get out of paying his fair share of taxes. In fact, I think there is a strong probability he hasn’t paid federal taxes for a lot of years," she said.

She would go on to drive the point him, inferring that Trump is not quite like the rest of us along the way.

“If not paying taxes makes him smart, what does that make all the rest of us?” Clinton said.
