How will Trump’s taxes and Clinton’s leaked audio recording impact the campaign?


NBC News political analyst Nicolle Wallace and NBC News political correspondent Steve Kornacki weigh in on the latest bombshells to hit the presidential race. Wallace says Donald Trump “is in dire straits right now because of his temperament and his tweets, not his taxes.” As Trump works hard to fight allegations that he hasn’t paid federal income taxes in nearly 20 years, Kornacki says there was an opening for Trump to say, “I’m not saying you should give me a high-five for it, but you should realize this is a bad system, I recognize it’s a bad system that career politicians have put in place.” But they’re not taking advantage of it right now, says Kornacki.
