President Donald Trump said he had prepaid millions in taxes to explain why documents reported by the New York Times showed he had only paid $750 in federal income tax in 2016.
“Deep down in the IRS, they treat me horribly,” Trump said. “We made a deal. It was all settled until I decided to run for president. I get treated very badly by the IRS. Very unfairly.
“But we had a deal all done. As soon as we’re completed with the deal — I want to release it. But I have paid millions and millions of dollars.
And it’s worse than paying. I paid in advance. It’s called prepaying your taxes,” Trump said at Thursday night’s presidential debate.
