Seeking to defend his father from a bombshell report from the New York Times, which revealed that Trump had paid just $750 in income taxes from 2016 to 2017, Eric Trump claimed, without providing evidence, the Internal Revenue Service is unfairly treating the president.
Eric Trump claimed a source inside the IRS leaked the documents, and called it the “IRS scandal of this generation.” The New York Times has not disclosed the source of the Trump tax data, in an effort to ensure the safety of its sources.
Eric Trump also questioned the timing of the Times’ report, including why the article was published days before the debate, and claimed his father had paid a “fortune in taxes.” “These are disgusting people,” Eric Trump said of the Times reporters who broke the story.
It’s fake news! But it was leaked!
