hilaryclinton-kdmf-621x414livemintHillary Clinton’s campaign pounced on a New York Times report Saturday that published tax documents that appeared to show Donald Trump posting a nearly $916 million loss in 1995.

According to the NBC online, Tax experts hired by the newspaper said the deduction could have allowed Trump to legally avoid paying federal income taxes for up to 18 years under tax rules, the Times reported.

Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon on Twitter called the report a “bombshell,” tweeting: “Trump’s returns show just how lousy a businessman he is AND how long he may have avoided paying any taxes.”
