CNN:  Donald Trump paid no federal income taxes whatsoever in 10 out of 15 years beginning in 2000 because he reported losing significantly more than he made, according to an explosive report released Sunday by the New York Times.  In both the year he won the presidency and his first year in the White House, Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes, the Times reported.  Detailing payments gleaned from more than two decades of tax information, the Times report outlines extensive financial losses and years of tax avoidance that deal a blow to the business-tycoon brand Trump has built his political career on
 At a White House briefing Sunday, Trump denied the New York Times story and claimed that he pays “a lot” in federal income taxes. “I pay a lot, and I pay a lot in state income taxes,” he said.  Trump added that he is willing to release his tax returns once he is no longer under audit by the Internal Revenue Service, which he said “treats me badly.” The President, however, is under no obligation to hold his tax returns while under audit.
