The White House said Wednesday there are no plans for President Trump to release his tax returns in the face of a New York Times report that found he engaged in “dubious” tax practices in the 1990s, allowing him to reap millions.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that she was “not aware of any plans” for Trump to release his tax returns. She also downplayed the significance of The Times’ story, calling it a “totally false attack based on an old, recycled news story.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I’m not going to sit and go through every single line of a very boring, 14,000-word story,” she said at a press briefing.
Sanders did not rebut any specific facts in the story, but referenced a statement from Trump’s attorney, Charles Harder, to the newspaper.
Harder said in a statement to The Times that allegations that Trump engaged in tax evasion are “100 percent false.”

Sanders also stated, in response to the story published on Tuesday, “I will say one thing the article did get right was that it showed that the president’s father actually had a great deal of confidence in him. In fact, the president brought his father into a lot of deals, and they made a lot of money together, so much so that his father went on to say that his father went on to say that everything he touched turned to gold.”
