Trump dismisses tax story as 'fake news'


Donald Trump has dismissed a report that he paid just 750 US dollars (£578) in federal income taxes the year he ran for president and in his first year in the White House. Mr Trump, who has fiercely guarded his tax filings and is the only president in modern times not to make them public, paid no federal income taxes in 10 of the past 15 years. He campaigned for office as a billionaire real estate mogul and successful businessman. Speaking at a news conference at the White House, President Trump dismissed the report as “fake news” and said he has paid taxes, though he gave no specifics.
