Caitlin Huey-Burns: Trump's Response To Tax Record Leak Will Make Or Break


RCP reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns responds to the New York Times publishing some of Donald Trump's tax records, and Trump surrogate Chris Christie's statement that the leaked information will be good for Trump.

"I don't think it will work among the people he needs to attract," she said about Christie's spin. "The Clinton campaign made an argument during the debate that Donald Trump has not participated in the system. He has not been giving back, through taxes, to vets, to infrastructure, to all of these things. So they can capitalize on all of that, and say Trump is avoiding taxes. These are all of the people that are paying taxes and this is what. So I think the Clinton campaign can certainly capitalize on this."

"The more important picture here is how Trump responds to this this week. The issue of temperament is on display, it has been since the Monday night debate. How he handles this, taken in aggregate of all the things we've seen this past week, I think will be really telling," she added.

"It is another way to lure him in, and get him to respond, and get him off message."
