Republican presidential candidate and real estate mogul Donald Trump reminded us of his business prowess, calling himself “king of the tax code” during a Friday morning interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“What I want to do is I want to simplify the tax code,” Trump told MSNBC.

“Look, nobody knows the tax code better than I do,” he said. “OK. I know it better. I’m the king of the tax code.”

Trump, in a move that distanced him from many Republicans, said he wants to raise taxes on the extremely rich. He also said he wants to lower taxes for middle-class Americans.

“We’re going to simplify the tax code, take away some of the deductions,” he said. “And hedge fund guys have to pay up.”
