Trump Made $150 Million, Paid 25% Tax Rate, Higher Than Romney, Bernie. Trump paid higher tax rate [25%] than MSNBC COMCAST [24%], higher than Obama [19%], and Bernie Sanders [13%]
From Zerohedge Reports:
But the real story here is that there is no story: What MSNBC confirmed is that Trump made more money than some of his critics said he made in the period in question, and more importantly, that he paid a generous effective income tax rate, well above the 14.1% rate paid by Mitt Romney, and even higher than the 13.5% federal tax rate paid by Bernie Sanders in 2014.
Trump 2005 tax rate: 25%
Romney 2011 tax rate: 14.1%
Sanders 2014 tax rate: 13.5%

Sadly for Maddow, with this attempt at a “blockbuster” story which has quickly backfired, she may well have killed the great distraction that was the trope of Trump’s tax returns, and which the rest of the “resistance” press hammered on every now and then.
