  • The New York Times released one of their longest reports ever. In a special investigation, the Times poured over financial records of Trump and his family to show that his father avoided around half a billion in taxes and that Trump received far more money from his parents than he has stated. He supposedly was earning $200,000 dollars from his father by the time he was 3 years old and by the time he was 8, Donald Trump was a millionaire. Now, the New York state department is investigating claims made in the article.
