Celebrity Divorce Lawyer Christopher C. Melcher explains President Donald Trump’s Tax Controversy on Good Morning Britain.

The New York Times says Donald Trump paid just $750 in federal income tax both in 2016, the year he ran for the US presidency, and in his first year at the White House. The newspaper, which says it obtained tax records for Mr. Trump and his companies over two decades also alleged that he paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the last 15 years. Our correspondent Ross King is in Los Angeles with more details on all of this. Morning, Ross. Now we have had a reaction from the president. Unsurprisingly, he’s calling it fake news, isn’t he?

“Absolutely. And this has been described as a bombshell report. Every president since the 1970s has given forward their tax information. But President Trump was the man who bucked that trend and bucked the tradition when he started running for president back in 2016,” says Ross King.

Now, The New York Times also saying that one of the reasons for the lack of returns is largely because he reported losing much more money than he actually made. Now, when asked for comment, the White House has been referring people to the Trump Organization. The Trump Organization themselves saying most if not all the facts appear to be inaccurate,” explains Ross King. “It’s totally fake news. Made up, fake. We went through the same story as you could have asked me the same questions. Four years ago I had to litigate this and talk about it. Totally fake news. Now, actually I paid tax, and you’ll see that as soon as my tax returns are…” says President Donald Trump. We’re just under 40 days away from the election. And there’s a poll out here saying that 70% of people will not be swayed by the presidential debate, which is coming up. Now we did speak with a celebrity divorce lawyer and business attorney who had this to say on the matter. “I don’t know that we have many undecided voters in the US. It’s unfortunately a polarized time right now and there isn’t much middle ground. So I don’t think that this latest scandal is going to make much of a difference to voters. And none of the other scandals have,” explains high net worth celebrity divorce lawyer Christopher C. Melcher. The President is said to face many questions over the next few days. And as we said on Tuesday, it’s that presidential debate, the first one with Joe Biden.
