Fox Business Host on NY Times Report That Trump Committed Tax Fraud: ‘No One Cares!’


A Fox Business host dismissed the massive New York Times report alleging that President Donald Trump committed “outright fraud” in “dubious tax schemes” on Outnumbered Wednesday.

The report detailed (in 14,000 words) how Trump used tax dodges to rake in hundreds of millions from his father’s real estate empire.

Trish Regan, whose primetime show on Fox Business Network is set to debut, argued the New York Times presented its story “unfairly,” and should have blamed Trump’s parents for the tax schemes.

“The truth is Harris, no one cares,” Regan told co-host Harris Faulkner. Faulkner asked what the point of the story is, and Regan suggested the Times was pursuing the story “to goad the New York Times into releasing his tax records.”

Melissa Francis accused the Times of publishing “hearsay” as a “trick” to get Trump to release his tax documents.

“Which is what they want, but, no one cares,” Francis added. (Worth remembering absurd it is to suggest New York Times editors, much less its lawyers, would allow the paper to publish hearsay to trick the president into releasing his tax returns.)
