"This is an example of why so many millions of Americans are frustrated. They're angry. They're disgusted at what they see as a corrupt political system in this country" Sanders said on CNN's "State of the Union." 

"You got the middle-class people working longer hours for lower wages ... the billionaires, no, they don't have to do that because they have their friends on Capitol Hill." 

The New York Times reported Saturday that a $916 million loss the Republican presidential nominee reported on his 1995 income tax returns could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income tax for up to 18 years.

The Times obtained fragments of Trump’s 1995 tax records, not previously released, that show Trump reported a federal adjusted gross income loss of $915.7 million in the wake of financial struggles at three Atlantic City casinos, his airline business and purchase of Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel.

Trump has not released his tax returns, so it's still unclear if he paid federal income tax in subsequent years.
