On Tuesday, The New York Times published an investigation detailing ten years worth of figures it had obtained from President Trump’s tax returns. The paper claimed the previously unrevealed numbers came from IRS tax transcripts, and someone who had legal access to them. The story provided the latest flare up in the political tug of war between the Democratic House and the GOP White House.
The Times claimed their report painted a far bleaker picture of Trump’s finances, between 1985 and 1994, than even he led on. Trump’s core businesses reported $1.17 billion in losses during the period.
