5 things we still don't know about Donald Trump's finances

  • New York (CNN Business) - The bombshell New York Times report over the weekend detailing two decades' worth of Donald Trump's tax records answered a number of questions Americans have been asking since Trump announced his bid for the White House.
  • The answer, per the Times reporting: at least during much of the past two decades, Trump has paid less in federal income taxes than the average American taxpayer.
  • Perhaps the easiest way for Trump to clarify for the American people just how much he has paid in federal income taxes — which support the Defense Department, law enforcement, education and myriad other government services — would be to release his tax returns himself, just as every other president has done since the Watergate era.
  • From 2010 to 2018, Trump wrote off some $26 million in unexplained "consulting fees" as business expenses, according to the Times report.
