Maher: Trump ‘Pretty Good’ On Taxing the Rich

HBO host Bill Maher stated Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is “pretty good” on taxing hedge fund managers and closing “loopholes on the super rich” on Friday’s “Real Time.”

Maher said, “here’s the interesting thing about Donald Trump, why it’s a little hard to put him in a box, because, on a few issues, he’s actually pretty good. And one of them is this issue — he actually wants to raise his own taxes. He actually wants to raise taxes on hedge fund managers, and close loopholes on the super rich. None of the others do, because they’re all beholden to the donors. This is my point. He doesn’t have to do that because he’s financing his own campaign. Jeb Bush released his tax plan this week, nothing for normal people, it was just for donors.”
