Trump and his wife Melania Trump announced their tax returns in the morning on their way to the United Nations headquarters.
The returns have been an irritant to the new president, who has refused to release his tax returns and has repeatedly threatened to sue the Washington Post and The New York Times.
The news comes on the heels of a massive leak of documents from WikiLeaks that showed that the Republican presidential nominee and his family made tens of millions of dollars from the Trump Organization, a vast business empire with offices in dozens of countries.
The Post and the Times published the documents after a monthlong investigation into the finances of the Trump family, which is run by the Trump presidential campaign.
Trump and Melania Trump made millions from the company, according to the documents.
They are the first to make the documents public since the election.
Trump has been under fire for not releasing his tax return since his campaign was declared bankrupt in April 2018, and he’s been critical of the media for failing to cover his tax affairs.
But WikiLeaks released the documents to make it possible for the public to see for themselves if the documents prove anything.
Trump said the documents would be made public as soon as he receives his tax forms.
“These documents will come out soon,” Trump said during a rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, after the two documents were released.
“I’m going to release them as soon we get them.
They will come in very soon.
I’m going into it like a very smart person.
I am very intelligent.”
Melania Trump and Donald Trump Jr. announced that they will release their tax documents to the public on Wednesday.
“We have never made our tax returns public before.
We have never done that for the last eight years, and we will do it now,” Trump and Trump Jr said in a statement.
“It is an important part of our personal financial disclosure.
We are committed to transparency, transparency, and accountability for the American people.
We intend to make public the tax returns of our children and grandchildren, and the returns of every American taxpayer.
We will never let the president, his campaign, or the press silence the American public from their basic questions about our taxes and our government.”
The documents show that Trump and Ivanka Trump made $4.2 million in 2016, and that Trump’s business partner and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, made $1.9 million.
Ivanka Trump and Kushner also made $2.1 million in taxes.
Trump paid an effective tax rate of 12.5 percent on $150 million in income in 2016.
The Trump Organization reported an effective income tax rate at just under 14 percent, while the Trump Foundation reported an income tax of nearly 28 percent.
Trump made a profit of more than $9.9 billion from the sale of the New York Observer and The Wall Street Journal.
He reported $2 billion in debt.
The documents showed that Trump reported $11.6 million in assets as of December 31, 2019, up from $6.9 years earlier.
The two largest Trump Organization businesses are the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., and the Trump SoHo in Manhattan.
The Washington Post reported that Trump paid $3.5 million in federal taxes on the hotel in 2018.
His net worth is $10.6 billion, according the Times.
