"I'm working for you now -- I'm not working for Trump," he told supporters at a rally in this key Western swing state Monday.

In his first day on the campaign trail after The New York Times reported that he had reported losing nearly $1 billion in a single year in tax filings, and could legally have gone as many as 18 years without paying income taxes afterward, Trump confronted the issue head-on. He said that in business, "it's my job to minimize the overall tax burden."

Truth spoken: it is the business of powerful people to stay in power. Nothing hidden here! “Legal losses” do not equate to real losses as anyone in business could affirm.

Bottom Line to this Brief Post

Since the founding of this country, the rule has been the same. If you have wealth (regardless of how you got it), you can find ways to keep it and even make it grow because you also have the power to manipulate legislation in your favor. Further, you can create a normalized model that promotes a myth of equal opportunity founded on an ethical system that favors profit over everything, including peoples’ welfare. This system is so entrenched in the U.S. that those in that upper echelon consider manipulating the system as something to be proud of.

"I have legally used the tax laws to my benefit ... Honestly, I have brilliantly used those laws," Trump said.
