Donald Trump paid just $750 (£580) in federal income tax both in 2016, the year he ran for the US presidency, and in his first year in the White House, the New York Times says.
The newspaper – which says it obtained tax records for Mr Trump and his companies over two decades – also says that he paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years.
The records reveal “chronic losses and years of tax avoidance”, it says.
Mr Trump called the report “fake news”.
“Actually I paid tax. And you’ll see that as soon as my tax returns – it’s under audit, they’ve been under audit for a long time,” he told reporters after the story was published on Sunday.
“The IRS [Internal Revenue Service] does not treat me well… they treat me very badly,” he said.

  1. Democracy breaks down when the media becomes a one sided monopoly and begins to act like a Regime style news media.
    Lying by constantly praising one party and never pointing out their wrong doings, or legal crimes. And lies by constantly blaming and twisting stories of any opposition candidate.

    This deprives the people of their right to the “ FREEDOM TO BE TOLD THE TRUTH” it is not about the media having the Freedom to twist stories, lie, and offer their own opinion. This undermines democracy.
