Washington (eTruePolitics) – A furious Donald Trump announced today that he had fired NOTaxNever, his American-based accounting firm tasked with handling the overseas financial affairs of the Trump companies.
Trump was said to be “embarrassed” by the revelation, first reported by the New York Times, that his Chinese bank account paid out $188,561.00 in taxes in China between 2013 and 2015. The current president paid $750 in U.S. federal taxes in 2016 and 2017.
“How can I ever look (Chinese president) Xi Jinping in the eye again?” Trump reportedly bellowed at staffers. “He doesn’t pay ANY TAXES.”
In a late night interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, a calmer Trump explained that “Paying taxes is never good, especially if it’s over three figures.”
