Trump a ‘genius’ at business if he paid no tax, advisers say

WASHINGTON: Donald Trump's decision to take a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax return showed his business acumen and "genius" at figuring out how to minimize his tax bill, two of the Republican presidential candidate's advisers said on Sunday.
