"The president has long sold himself as a self-made billionaire, but a Times investigation found that he received at least $413 million in todays dollars from his fathers real estate empire, much of it through tax dodges in the 1990s."

Good for him.
At least he isn’t a hypocrite about it.
please delete this thread....another freeper beat me to it.
You mean the same tax “dodges” the Schultzburger family has no doubt used to pass the NY Times down through generations without paying estate taxes. Or the Kennedys or any large family farmer or business owner with an tax accountant that is worth anything.
Duplicate. Already posted, just a couple down from yours.
through tax dodges in the 1990
LOL, so let me get this straight he paid his taxes and everything tax wise was totally legal right - okay, got it.
They have their sights aimed at Trump. They will work on trying to destroy him, after they finish with Kavanaugh.
The Deep State and the Corrupt press work hand in hand... this story is a yawn. None of care because the press and deep state have lost credibility.
see post 5
Yep, “tax dodge” basically means he used perfectly legal methods to minimize his tax liability. In other words, he wasn’t an idiot and actually hired competent tax accountants, because this is exactly what they get paid to do.
Let me understand this, the IRS under Obama never said one word (or their media friends) when Trump was running against Hillary. But Obama used Five Eyes to illegally spy on Trump. Does this make any sense that Obama / Hillary / Deep State never used the alleged tax issue, they did everything in their power to stop Trump!
If we are going there let’s be sure to look at Feinsteinand other dems who have gotten rich making 180,000 per year in the senate an house. They come in and thwart and manipulate the laws and leave as multi multimillionaires.
The day would not be the same without a smear from shemp.
I am sure that the NYT has a staff of hundreds dedicated solely to attack Trump.
BFD. As long as it was legal, who cares? This class envy crap is tiresome.
Years ago my my father in law passed away. He left my wife and her brother a family farm that was worth a considerable amount of money. In the years before he passed away he structured his will in such a way that he legally reduced the tax liability on his estate. Nothing was wrong with what he did, he wanted to leave as much of his legacy to his children as he could.The estate was no where near the billion dollar one that was left to the President and his siblings. I guess it all depends on how much you think the government was entitled from the value of the estate. I for one think they got more than they should have. Tax laws are what they are. The Trump family made use of them to their advantage. All the people make use of those laws. It benefits use all that they exist. This is Fake News pure and simple. Consider the source and you will see their agenda.
If it passed the IRS and NY Tax Officials, so what? All the
money Trump made never prevented from making one cent.
Nor has any other wealthy person.
