Nothing. Zero.

Hannity: Now everybody keeps saying down at Occupy Wall Street, the 1% -- which I'm sure you're a part of -- doesn't pay any taxes.  Do you not pay any taxes?  I didn't know that.

Trump: No, I pay tax.  I pay a lot of tax.  I just signed a big fat check recently for a lot of tax.  I paid literally, I paid a lot of tax and you know, look, I don't mind.  I'm proud to pay it up.  If I owe it, I pay it.

The amazing thing is that half of the country is paying nothing.  Zero.  And even if you don't make a lot, you should have to pay something.  Just something to be a part of the game.  Half of the country's paying nothing.

-- Donald Trump, in a 2011 radio interview with conservative host Sean Hannity, as quoted by CNN.  It was recently revealed that Trump paid no federal income taxes in 10 out of 15 years beginning in 2000
