The president of the United States, the real estate mogul Donald Trump, has hardly paid taxes in the last 10 years because he declares losses in his businesses. The tax returns, an obligation before his voters from which he had escaped, have been described by the newspaper ‘The New York Times’, which has had access to the printed matter of the last 20 years.
The highest amount paid by the tycoon has been 750 dollars (about 700 euros), the year of his election. Trump has based his political career on his image as a successful businessman, especially as a result of the program ‘The aprentice’ in which he gave business lessons.
The image that your tax returns reveal is that of a person with hardly any personal property in his name, but of his more than 500 companies. And that his main asset is the income from his image, which has amounted to more than 400 million in the last 14 years.
Not even when he got paid from television for the ‘reality show’, of which he received 50% of the profits, did it mean an increase in income, since he used the income to buy more than a dozen golf courses and many other properties, reveals the rotary.
The former real estate mogul’s tax returns are at the center of a legal battle, as Trump has always refused to release them as the president of the United States often does.
