Trump responds to ten-year tax evasion allegations

US President Donald Trump responded to the New York Times' accusations of tax evasion for ten years. He stated his position on Twitter.

“The fake media, just like during the 2016 elections, raise my taxes and all other nonsense with illegally obtained information and only bad intent. I paid many millions of dollars in taxes, but I was entitled, like everyone else, to depreciation and tax breaks, ”said the American president. He added that the newspaper did not take into account his “incredible assets” and stressed that he has a very low level of debt. In addition, Trump noted that he is the only president in history to refuse a salary.

The day before, The New York Times, referring to tax returns, wrote that Trump had not paid federal income tax over the past ten years. According to the publication, when Trump became president in 2016, he paid only $ 750 (59 thousand rubles – approx. “Lenta.ru” ) income tax and the same amount in 2017. “He has not paid any income tax at all for ten of the last 15 years – mainly because he reported that he was losing more than he earned,” the newspaper said.

Earlier, the niece of US President Donald Trump Mary accused him of fraudulent inheritance after the death of his father. She filed a lawsuit against the American leader, the other defendants are his sister Marianne Trump-Barry and the estate manager of their brother Robert, who died in August.
