The New York Times has gained access to President Donald Trump’s tax returns over the past two decades. According to reporters, they show, among other things, that for the 2016 election year he paid only $ 750 in taxes, in terms of approximately 17,517 crowns. According to documents, he paid in the first year at the White House.
According to the letter, he did not pay any income taxes in the previous 10 out of 15 years, mainly because he reported higher financial losses than his earnings. Trump called the New York Times article “fake news” at a news conference.
Trump has been trying to prevent the disclosure of its financial records and tax returns since its 2016 campaign. Democrats, journalists, and New York prosecutor Cyrus Vance have long sought to uncover them. He told the federal court in the summer that he was also seeking to release records because of possible large-scale and long-term criminal activity in the president’s company, The Trump Organization, including alleged insurance and bank fraud.
“This is just a continuation of the witch hunt. It’s the Democrats’ inventions. They failed with Mueller. They failed in nothing. They failed in Congress. They failed at every stage of the game. It’s been three and a half to four years,” Trump said.
