Following a New York Times discovery of Trump’s 1995 tax returns where he claimed a loss of over $910 million in order to avoid paying taxes for an estimated 15 years reasonable people wondered how it would be legal for someone so obnoxiously wealthy and running to be President to be such a flagrant tax cheat. Mark Cuban has proven himself to be Trump’s arch nemesis, pissing Trump off to no end, and it’s amazing to watch.
Via RealTimePolitics: In the column, Cuban wrote that while some people find it “distasteful” to pay taxes, he finds it patriotic. “So be patriotic,” he wrote. “Go out there and get rich. Get so obnoxiously rich that when that tax bill comes, your first thought will be to choke on how big a check you have to write. Your second thought will be ‘what a great problem to have,’ and your third should be a recognition that in paying your taxes you are helping to support millions of Americans that are not as fortunate as you.”
Trump claimed at the Presidential Debate Monday that not paying taxes made him “smart”. Cuban is more wealthy than Trump, his response: “At some point you have to recognize you have to give back and you have to realize that this is a country that has been great to us, and you can’t just take, take, take, take, take, take, take.”
