This is crazy. Trump is so selfish and narcissistic. He’s in the midst of running for President, and yet he won’t show his tax returns–and now, smack dab in the middle of an election cycle, he appears to be filing suit against D.C. to get his tax bill dropped even lower!
Wow. That’s chutzpah.
Trump wants to enjoy police protection, etc., but have others pay for it. He is really taking his followers for a ride.
Here’s the key quote from the just-posted Politico article:
If Trump moves forward with the hotel-related tax battle, it would be another potential distraction for his presidential campaign. His failure to release his own personal tax returns has generated numerous news stories, as has his claiming of a $302 property tax break on his Manhattan apartment. That relief is available only to taxpayers who make less than $500,000 a year. Trump is also suing two restaurateurs who backed out of plans to open dining establishments at the planned Washington hotel after Trump lashed out at Mexican immigrants last year.
