Democrats in Uproar Over NYT Article Regarding Trump's Taxes, Here's Who They Can Blame


The President's tax returns have supposedly been made accessible, but only to the New York Times.

The New York Times is the one who broke this "news" which President Trump is called "totally made up".

Supposedly they have gained access to his tax returns for the last 15 years, but they failed to show any evidence that they actually do have access to anything. They literally could be making the whole thing up, or they could have been given false information. This would be fantastic if it were true.

Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.

He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.

As the president wages a re-election campaign that polls say he is in danger of losing, his finances are under stress, beset by losses and hundreds of millions of dollars in debt coming due that he has personally guaranteed.

President Trump lambasted a New York Times report that said he paid no federal income taxes for 10 of the past 15 years, calling the story “fake news” and arguing that he paid large amounts of federal and state taxes.

“It's fake news, it’s totally made up,” Trump said Sunday during a press briefing less than an hour after the story broke in the newspaper. “Everything was wrong, they are so bad.”

Here's my take on this:

Even if it is true that the President only paid $750 in taxes, I guarantee you that he did it legally. He's a very smart man when it comes to money and being able to tax advantage of the current tax code. If Democrats don't like it, then they shouldn't have made the tax laws the way that they are. They only have themselves to blame.
