Published

One of President Donald Trump’s sons lashed out at The Washington Post on Tuesday, calling it a “disgraceful newspaper.

The Washington Post is a disgraceful paper that has zero regard for journalistic integrity,” Eric Trump argued on Twitter. “They are everything that is wrong with the media in this country.”

Eric Trump’s outburst occurred after the newspaper published a story on the family’s Los Angeles golf course not paying taxes.

“President Trump’s company owed $36,200 in delinquent property taxes on its California golf course until Monday — when it paid, after the delinquency was pointed out by The Washington Post,” the newspaper reported. “The county declared them delinquent after Dec. 10.”

The paper explained how the story developed.

“On Monday — after a reporter noticed the delinquent taxes on a county government website — The Post asked the Trump Organization about the unpaid bills,” they explained. “Later that day, the company paid the bills, plus $3,600 in late payment penalties, according to the office of the L.A. County Treasurer and Tax Collector.”

The Trump Organization declined to explain why the taxes had gone unpaid.

Eric Trump works as the executive vice president of the Trump Organization.
