Donald Trump: “The United States is the Highest-Tax Nation in the World!”

Donald Trump just said it in his celebration press conference on Super Tuesday.

He’s said it before: “We have the highest tax rate anywhere in the world.” — October 14, 2015

Politfact has the verdict: it’s just not true.

Either Donald Trump is a liar, or he’s a fool. Neither should be a president.

    Trump and Clinton are both liars. Vote Libertarian.

    Where were his handlers and speech-writers? Oh, yeah, he has none.

    He’s definitely wrong. Perhaps he meant that the USA collects more in total taxes than anywhere else.

    1. Jim Cook says:

      You don’t need a handler or a speechwriter to know that the claim is wrong. That he’s repeatedly claimed this is true indicates that he knows the truth and doesn’t care about telling the truth, or that he knows so little about the United States in the context of the world that he shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the presidency.
