The New York Times got its hands on three pages of Donald Trump’s taxes in 1995. The documents revealed that the White House GOP presidential hopeful, Donald J. Trump, declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns. Checkout the genesis, revelation and the Trump genius – defended by Trump adviser, surrogate and supporter – video clips of events as they happened . . .
On Saturday night, a report published by the New York Times claimed the Republican presidential candidate may have avoided income paying taxes for up to 18 years because of a nearly $1 billion loss he took in 1995.
Trump according to the findings declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax returns, a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years, records obtained by the New York Times had shown.
Trump has famously broken with tradition and refused to release his tax returns, saying that he is unable to because he is under IRS audit.
He initially responded by calling the documents “illegally obtained” and claiming that the New York Times is an “extension” of Clinton’s campaign. On other occasions he had always called the Cable News Network (CNN) as Clinton News Network (CNN).
Trump responded to the New York Times report about his taxes and said that the newspaper is ‘#Failing’
Trump also replied in two tweets:
I know our complex tax laws better than anyone who has ever run for president and am the only one who can fix them.#failing@nytimes
He continued, and compared his reputation to his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton‘s.
“I have created tens of thousands of jobs and will bring back great American prosperity. Hillary has only created jobs at the FBI and DOJ!” he wrote in one tweet.
