Trump adviser Larry Kudlow brags that president has been ‘dodging’ taxes ‘for years’

During a conservative dinner, Donald Trump’s own economic adviser admitted that the president has dodged taxes “for years.”

The Washington Examiner reported that National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow made the comments during a Capitol Hill dinner hosted by American Spectator magazine.

“As a businessman, he knows a lot about taxes,” Kudlow told the audience. “He’s been dodging them for all these years — legally. And he would show us in his offices stacks of papers and what he had to do.”

The former CNBC host added that Trump knows the ins and outs of tax regulation because of his business experience.

Kudlow’s comments came the week after the New York Times published an exhaustively-researched exposé on the many ways Fred Trump, the president’s father, evaded taxes to benefit himself and his children.

Viewers baffled as GOP counsel appears to push anti-Trump talking points during Yovanovich cross-examination

Published

on

House Republican impeachment inquiry attorney Steve Castor on Friday baffled viewers with a line of questioning that appeared to be beneficial to House Democrats' case for impeaching President Donald Trump.

Among other things, Castor referred to ambassador Bill Taylor as a man of integrity and also didn't challenge former ambassador Marie Yovanovich's story that she had been the subject of a smear campaign launched by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

In fact, Castor's line of questioning was so friendly to House Democrats, that some Twitter users joked that he was a "deep state plant" who's secretly helping to impeach the president.
