More Proof That Hillary Can't Tell the Truth

During the first Presidential Debate, Hillary Clinton made this statement attempting to discredit Trump regarding his payment of taxes.
"Maybe he doesn't want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes, because the only years that anybody's ever seen were a couple of years when he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license, and they showed he didn't pay any federal income tax."
So, the assumption left with the audience is that Trump only released two tax returns in his lifetime and, in both cases, he paid no taxes.  This is another Hillary lie.  In 1981, in order obtain a gambling/casino license, Trump was required to release the last five years of his tax returns.  The two that Hillary mentioned were the only two of that five that he didn't pay taxes on, due to "Net Operating Losses".  In this country we pay taxes on profit and not losses. Hillary purposely ignored that fact to deceive the audience.  As usual, the deed was done, and that impression is left in the minds of the more than the 80 million who watched the debate.

Fortunately, PolitiFact caught the deception and awarded Hillary a mostly false for her statement.  Read their analysis at this link:
