The US President Donald trump made a profit of $ 153 million dollars in 2005, and paid them $ 38 million in tax payments. Such data are contained in a copy of the tax Declaration of the President of the United States, which was published by the American media, in particular television channel MSNBC on Tuesday, March 14, reports Deutsche Welle.
The White house confirmed the authenticity of the published document, noting that trump paid $ 38 million as well as “tens of millions of dollars in other taxes such as sales taxes, excise taxes, and taxes on workers.” However, at the same time, the administration of the President of the United States said that they consider the disclosure document in the media as illegal and accused the journalists in pursuit of ratings, informs Agency dpa.
