On Trump Getting Hammered for Not Paying More Taxes than He Was Legally Required to

I think that folks (on the left, particularly) need to understand the difference between tax avoidance strategies (which are legal and you'd be a fool not to take advantage of) and tax evasion strategies (which are patently illegal) and that what Trump did was seemingly the former. Yes, the tax code is huge mess and we could probably all benefit from a more simplified system but to blame a guy who's never cast a single vote in Washington for that mess seems a trifle unfair to me.
