Then "most voters" should take it up with the tax code, that says Trump is overpaying.

We don’t know how much Trump pie in taxes though. If his income tax liability was $750, there are other taxes he pays and that figure isn’t unreasonable given that his companies lost money during his candidacy and presidency

It should definitely be illegal to overestimate your value to insurers while underestimating your value to the IRS. That's called fraud, and it should have been investigated when he refused to show his taxes, disqualifying him from even running.

You guys know that during his presidency Trump has paid in taxes several times more than he has earned from his government salary, right?

I agree that he should pay more taxes. Still voted for him though. How much Trump pays in taxes is on Congress which has failed to reform the tax code for decades.

His tax problems should be the least of his worries. He has imploded.

He doesn't take a pay check for being president. For what he has put in everyone's pocket he should never pay the rest of his life.
