(UnitedVoice.com) – During the 2020 presidential campaign, the New York Times published part of then-President Donald Trump’s tax returns allegedly showing he paid little in federal taxes. The Left immediately started calling for his head. Strangely, they’re not attacking billionaire George Soros with that same energy.

On June 8, ProPublica revealed that several of the country’s richest people did not pay federal taxes across a number of years. Soros was among the people named. The watchdog group said the billionaire “paid no federal income tax three years in a row.” A spokesperson for Soros claimed it was because he lost money on his investments from 2016 through 2018.
Breitbart pointed out that the stock market rose over those three years, so it’s weird that Soros is claiming he lost money. Also, in 2017, he gave $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations. Again, in 2018, he donated to the Left in order to win the majority in Congress. Is Soros using his foundation as a tax shelter of sorts to avoid paying his fair share? That certainly seems possible, but don’t expect the Democrats to come out and demand to see his taxes.
