Trump Speaks Out About NYT Report On Tax Returns, Calls It ‘Fake News’

Published

on

President Trump has come out and released a comment on the current New York Times story that was published, alleging he only paid $750 in federal income taxes for the years of 2016 and during his first year in office.

The NYT published this report on Trump’s financial information, which is something that he’s managed to keep out of the public eye for the majority of his first term in the White House, on Sunday.

Conveniently for Democrats, this report comes just several days before the first presidential debate between Biden and Trump.

Asked to respond to the New York Times’s reporting, Trump said the report about years of tax avoidance was not accurate, and he would release his tax returns once they are no longer under audit.

“That is fake news. That is totally fake news,” Trump said.

“Actually, I pay taxes. You will see that as soon as my tax returns, it’s under audit,” he added later. “It’s been under audit for a long time. The IRS does not treat me well. They treat me like the Tea Party, like they treated the Tea Party. And they don’t treat me well. They treat me very badly.”

The New York Times report also said Trump paid no federal taxes in 10 of the last 15 years “largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.” A lawyer for the Trump Organization, Alan Garten, told the outlet that “most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate” and claimed the president “has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government, including paying millions in personal taxes since announcing his candidacy in 2015.”

Now, the question everyone should be asking right now is whether or not those involved in collecting any sort of information like this and releasing it to the public have violated any laws. They likely have, which does not look good for the left going into the final stretch of campaign season.

The president went on to say that he’s paid state and local taxes over the years, but didn’t provide any further details.

“I’ve paid a lot, and I’ve paid a lot of state income taxes, too,” Trump said to the press. “The New York state charges a lot, and I paid a lot of money in state [taxes]. It’ll all be revealed. It’s going to come out, but after the audit is done. They’re doing their assessment. We’ve been negotiating for a long time. Things get settled like in the IRS, but right now, when you’re under audit, you don’t do that. So we’re under audit, but the story is a total fake.”

Democrats are getting desperate to ensure Biden wins this election. Thus, they are pulling out all the stops against the president to try and shoot down his campaign and the momentum he’s garnered for his second term. Doesn’t seem like they are doing a very good job of this.

The Boston Marathon bomber will receive a stimulus check. And yes, it will be for the same amount that you will get. That’s not a joke. And he’s not the only criminal who will get it, either. Thanks for everything, Dems! Check this out, via The Daily Wire: Senate Democrats blocked an amendment by Republicans on Saturday that would have stopped taxpayer-funded stimulus checks from going to illegal aliens and incarcerated criminals. Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (AR), Ted Cruz (TX), and Bill Cassidy (LA) offered an amendment on the Senate floor to block prisoners from being able to receive stimulus checks, which was blocked in a 49-50 vote.

Donald Trump Goes Scorched Earth on ‘Disloyal & Very Bad Senator’ Lisa Murkowski

Say goodbye, Lisa!!

The GOP doesn’t need centrists in the upper and lower chambers. There are far too many liberals in Congress as it is. The left doesn’t need more votes. It’s time for RINO’s like Murkowski, Romney, Toomey, Cassidy, and Sasse to head on back over to the private sector. Donald Trump will do his best to soon make that a reality. From Washington Examiner: Former President Donald Trump will not be supporting Alaska GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s bid for a fourth term. The former president announced on Saturday that he’ll be traveling to the Last Frontier State to campaign against Murkowski ahead of her 2022 reelection bid, according to Politico. CONTINUED: “I will not be endorsing, under any circumstances, the failed candidate from the great State of Alaska, Lisa Murkowski. She represents her state badly and her country even worse,” he said. “I do not know where other people will be next year, but I know where I will be — in Alaska campaigning against a disloyal and very bad Senator.” Murkowski, a centrist, has long been willing to split from the former commander in chief, as evidenced by some of her recent votes in the Senate. The Alaskan voted for Trump’s conviction last month on the House’s impeachment article of inciting an insurrection. The former president was ultimately acquitted. https://twitter.com/newsmax/status/1360763406677114886 https://twitter.com/AP/status/1360761311781662720 https://twitter.com/GriffJenkins/status/1360765053436313601 https://twitter.com/DailyMail/status/1360766719141302274 https://twitter.com/LAGOP/status/1360722297754177546?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1360722297754177546%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Frepublican-senators-vote-to-convict-trump-on-incitement-charge
