Eric Trump Insists ‘We Have No Assets in Russia’ in CNN Clash Over Taxes
Eric Trump ended up in the hot seat on CNN tonight over his father’s tax returns and potential business ties to Russia following the VP debate.
Dana Bash, Wolf Blitzer, and John King all confronted Trump on whether 1) his father has paid income taxes in the past few years, and 2) whether he’s actually seen those returns.
Trump’s son insisted that “we pay a tremendous amount of taxes” and his father has paid income taxes in the last few years.
Tim Kaine attacking his dad on his alleged Russian business ties really bothered Trump, who called it “nonsense” and “garbage.”
King––who complimented his pivoting abilities––asked why not just release the returns to settle the issue of whether they have business in Russa. Trump shot back by inviting people to “go look to see if our name’s on a building” in Russia.
