Once again, Rev. Al Sharpton tried to discredit President Trump.
He demands Trump to release his tax returns and harshly criticizes the president’s tax plan. The president stated many times that he will release his tax returns once an audit is completed.
But, the liberal activist and MNSBC host has his own tax issues that have yet to be dealt with.
According to the US Herald, Obama signed a law that revoked the “passports of those who owe more than $50,000 in back taxes.” Al Sharpton owes a lot more than that.
When Heat Street reviewed public records as the new year began, they revealed that Sharpton and his companies, “including several dissolved by New York for failure to pay taxes,” owe approximately “$1.5 million in state and federal taxes, interest and penalties.”
Yet, Sharpton dismissed the criticism of his tax debt stating
“We’re talking about old taxes. I think it’s political.”
Sharpton repeatedly called for the wealthy in this country to “pay their fair share.”
According to a source close to Sharpton,
“He’s been paying it down aggressively, aware of how it may affect his legacy.”
What about all the welfare programs he is so fond of? Shouldn’t he help fund those as a rich taxpayer?
So, we have a rich man who decries that the rich must pay their fair share, yet he consistently failed to pay his.
Talk about double standards.
