ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton speaking at a campaign rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania hit hard against her opponent Donald Trump and his tax history. Clinton said that during the first presidential debate, when she pointed out that Trump may not have paid his taxes, Trump said that made him "smart." "Well, think about it this way, that makes the rest of us dumb," Clinton said. A recent New York Times report that Trump took an almost $1 billion loss in 1995 may have allowed him to avoid paying federal income taxes for up to 18 years due to a write-off. While Democrats have slammed him over the report, Trump, who made much of his business acumen on the campaign trail, has said he "brilliantly used" U.S. tax rules to his advantage to limit his tax bills.
