Hillary Clinton spoke in Toledo Monday.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton is seizing upon a New York Times report that Donald Trump had a net loss of more than $915 million in 1995. Clinton says it means Trump “may not have paid a dime” in federal income taxes for nearly two decades.

Clinton says at a campaign stop in Toledo, Ohio, that it means Trump never contributed to Pell Grants to help kids attend college or federal veterans or military programs.

She says Trump represents the “same rigged system that he claims he’s going to change.” She adds, “What kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a single year?”

Clinton says there needs to be a law that requires the nominee of the two major parties to release their tax returns.

Clinton also said she’s thrilled to receive the endorsement of Cleveland Cavaliers basketball star LeBron James.

Clinton says the Ohio native nicknamed “King James” is a longtime, dedicated advocate for children. The Democratic presidential nominee says they both share the belief that every child should have the chance to live up to his or her God-given potential.

Clinton says she hopes to be elected president, but she knows that “LeBron will always be the king.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
