Trump made $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in federal taxes

by HENRY C. JACKSON | Politico  |  published on March 15, 2017

TrumpThe White House said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump paid $38 million in federal income taxes in 2005 — on $150 million in earnings — offering a small glimpse at the president’s personal finances, which Trump has so far kept almost entirely private.

The administration offered those details in a statement after journalist David Cay Johnston published two pages of tax information about the president, apparently from Trump’s 2005 return. The revelations were simultaneously broadcast on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow” show, which included an interview with Johnston. Based on the information on the two pages, Trump paid an effective tax rate of about 25 percent.

    HE GROSSED OVER 250 MILLION, BUT HIS LEGAL DEDUCTIONS BROUGHT IT DOWN TO 150 MILLION NET.

    WE HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

      The payment of income taxes is an issue that is handled by the internal revenue service and not by Madcow or any of the others.
      I want to see Reed go to prison for saying that former presidential candidate Mit Romney had not filed income taxes for ten years. That was a lie but it goes unpunished.

    Nothing like a good laugh to make my day. Trump paid more taxes than Obama, Sanders, Mitt Romney or Comcast. I also loved Eric Trump’s tweet to Madow thanking her for telling all of America that his dad paid 38 million in taxes in 2005. The MSM and the libs are freaking out. How funny is that? I really wonder how much money was paid to whoever released those taxes? Nonetheless, whoever did better hope their not found. I wouldn’t want to go to prison for a worthless media who just made fools of themselves. Nor would I want to be on the receiving end of Trumps wrath over this.

    • Walter Flatt

      WHAT DO YOU BET THAT HE DONT FIND THE PEOPLE THAT LEAKED THEM AND OTHER INFORMATION AND HE WILL HAVE THEM PROSCUTED.

      • Shelly Shannon

        It won’t be that hard to find out who stole them. Madow says she is protected by the first ammendment, but that isn’t true. She didn’t have Trump’s permission to release them, and they were stolen. That makes it illegal. Put pressure on her and she will crack. She knows where they came from.

    Liberals believe that someone making $150 Million a year should pay THEIR fare share of taxes. “THEIR” being the liberal himself. Please tell me, what’s “fare” about that? How much of that $150 Million did “they” work for???

    • Shelly Shannon

      They absolutely worked for none of it. Madow is a cow and the person who delivered those returns is a fellon. Can’t give them more credit than that.
