Trump Lashes Out at New York Times for Tax Return Tall Tale

The President’s lawyer chimed in as well.

After years of waiting, wondering, and setting the nation up for something spectacular, the mainstream media finally got their wish:  The tax returns of President Donald Trump have been revealed, at least in part, by the New York Times.

The story emerging in the infotainment industry today is a wild one, full of hyperbole and speculation.  CNN and others have been busy attempting to spin the New York Times’ allegations as a deafening blow to the President and his air of affluence, while Fox News and others on the right seem to be avoiding the subject altogether.

President Trump isn’t shying away from the story, however, and is lashing out at the suggestion that he has done anything illegal or immoral.

DONALD Trump has branded a New York Times report claiming he paid no income tax for 10 years and only $750 federal taxes in 2017 as “totally fake news”.

During his press briefing at the White House, just one hour after the figures were published, the president denied the bombshell claims, saying they were “made up.”

He told reporters: “I pay a lot. And I pay a lot of state taxes too.”

The president vowed that information about his taxes “will all be revealed,” but did not disclose when this would be.

The New York Times article also claimed the year Trump became president, he paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years.

Some of the President’s closest advisers also rained on the media’s parade.

A lawyer for the Trump organization, Alan Garten, said the article is “riddled with gross inaccuracies.”
