Trump Writes Off New York Times Hit Piece as Real Estate ‘Sport’

The President’s flippant response is Classic Trump, and will likely annoy the democrats to no end.

The New York Times certainly felt like they “got” Donald Trump today, but the President simply scoffed it away.

The Times, who have been diligently and vehemently anti-Trump during the President’s first term, were able to accomplish something that a myriad of other newspapers and Congressmen could not:  Procure years of President Trump’s tax previously private tax returns.

The alarming losses described in the documents would frighten the average American, surely, but the President was quick to defend himself by likening the losses to “sport” with his signature nonchalance.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday fired back at The New York Times over the newspaper’s investigative report that said his tax figures from 1985 through 1994 showed staggering business losses of more than $1 billion.

“You always wanted to show losses for tax purposes….almost all real estate developers did – and often re-negotiate with banks, it was sport,” Trump said in a pair of early morning tweets. “Additionally, the very old information put out is a highly inaccurate Fake News hit job!”

The Times published the report Tuesday night. It said it obtained Trump’s tax information, including printouts from his official IRS tax transcripts, for 1985 through 1994. Trump’s book, “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” was published in 1987.

Again, there is a perspective of relativity here that cannot be ignored solely on the basis of a few monetary commas.

Trump wasn’t your average businessman, so he wouldn’t necessarily post average results.  Are the size of these numbers indicative of his abilities, or of the simple scale of his dealings?

In either case, the President’s flippant response is sure to ruffle feathers on the left side of the aisle.
