Can I shift the loss in a revocable trust account to my personal benefit so that I can deduct the loss on my income tax return?

My  wife and I are grantors and still alive.  I have reported past  trust income and capital gains by passing through to us on 1099s (B, INT and DIV).

Grantor trusts are treated as disregarded entities for federal income tax purposes so you report items of income, gain/loss, deductions, credits, etc. on your federal individual income tax return.
