Rep. Grijalva Responds to NYT Article on President's Tax Returns

U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva

Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva said in a statement Monday that President Donald Trump took advantage of a "rigged" tax code to avoid paying income taxes. 

His statement comes on the heels of a New York Times article alleging the President paid $750 in income tax in 2016 and 2017. 

“Donald Trump is not a man of the people. He has nothing in common with the workers and small businesses who are the heartbeat of this nation and actually pay their share of taxes. Congress must continue fighting for the President’s tax returns to fully assess the extent of his financial interests," said Rep. Grijalva.

The lawmaker is now calling on Congress to close loopholes and reform the tax code.
