Trump and Biden to Face Off in 1st Debate as NYT Drops Second Report on Trump’s Taxes

HeadlineSep 29, 2020

President Trump and Joe Biden are facing off tonight in Cleveland for the first of three presidential debates. Trump is expected to face questions about the bombshell report in The New York Times that revealed he paid no federal income tax in 10 of the past 15 years and just $750 in 2016 and 2017. In a follow-up report, the Times reveals Trump made $427 million in connection to the hit reality TV show “The Apprentice,” providing him a financial lifeline as other investments lost money. The Times reports, “Mr. Trump’s genius, it turned out, wasn’t running a company. It was making himself famous — Trump-scale famous — and monetizing that fame.”
