Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Pueblo, Colorado this afternoon, the candidate’s first event of the week.
Trump’s is set to speak at the Pueblo Convention Center beginning at 3:00 p.m. Mountain Time. The rally can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
The Republican nominee for president is coming off of a difficult week, which was dominated largely by his feud with former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. The week culminated with even more bad news for the campaign when The New York Times released leaked tax records that show that Donald Trump may have not paid federal income taxes for 18 years.
This would be perfectly legal, as when Trump declared a $916 million loss in 1995, this would excuse him from paying federal income taxes until he made that money back. But it’s still not a good look for the campaign, as most Americans have shown frustration with millionaires and billionaires being able to use loopholes like these to get out of paying taxes. It’s also seen as a bit hypocritical that Trump has over the past few years complained about low income Americans not paying federal income taxes when apparently doesn’t pay them himself.
The campaign has not denied the story’s legitimacy; instead, its response has been that Trump did nothing wrong and is in fact very smart for figuring out how to avoid paying taxes.
“The man’s a genius,” Rudy Giuliani said of Trump on Sunday. “He knows how to operate the tax code to the benefit of the people he’s serving.”
Trump himself has yet to respond to the story outside of a few vague tweets, and so he will almost certainly hit back at The New York Times during his rally in Pueblo this afternoon.
