Trump talks tough but makes no commitments during WNY visit

(Continued)

Neither the company nor its employees would pay state taxes, including personal income taxes, for 10 years. Cuomo has said he expects businesses will be rooted in the state by then and wouldn't leave. As a result, they would start paying taxes, although the companies couldn't be bound to stay in New York longer.

Trump also said that hydraulic fracturing, which is currently banned in New York, would solve the state's debt.

"I believe that if I ran and if I won, we would become one of the great energy capitals of this world," he said.

Outside the restaurant, Brian Krawczyk, a SAFE act opponent, said he opposed Cuomo but had reservations about seeing Trump run for governor.

"It could," he said, "turn into a bit of a circus."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
