WATCH: Trump Tells Rally Goers That You Don’t Have to Pay Taxes on Company Cars or Apartments

This week, long-time Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg was arrested. Donald Trump did not seem bothered by the fact. In fact he told some associates that he was excited about the arrest because he thinks it will somehow hurt Joe Biden.

Trump continued to talk about the investigation during a rally in Sarasota, Florida last night. At one point, he told the crowd that businesses don’t have to pay taxes on corporate cars or apartments.

The former president told his supporters, “They go after good, hard-working people for not paying taxes on a company car. You didn’t pay tax on the car or a company apartment. You used an apartment because you need an apartment because you have to travel too far where your house is. You didn’t pay tax. Or education for your grandchildren. I don’t even know. Do you have to? Does anybody know the answer to that stuff?”

Trump continued, “Think of it, think of how unfair it is. Never before has New York City and their prosecutors or perhaps any prosecutors criminally charged a company or a person for fringe benefits. Fringe benefits. Murders, okay. Human trafficking, no problem – but fringe benefits, you can’t do that.”
