Ocasio-Cortez suggests Trump may be 'vulnerable to shady activity' due to alleged business losses
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said President Trump may be “vulnerable to shady activity” after a report claiming he lost billions of dollars from his businesses over three decades ago.
The New York Democrat tweeted about a New York Times report that alleged that Trump claimed to have lost $1.17 billion from his real estate businesses on his federal income tax returns for the decade between 1985 and 1994.
“Wouldn’t you think someone who personally lost over a BILLION dollars ('more than nearly any other taxpayer in America') be vulnerable to shady activity to get out of that hole?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Tuesday.
“If they became the most powerful public servant in America, wouldn’t you want to see their taxes?” Ocasio-Cortez added, echoing the House Democrats’ rallying cry to reveal Trump’s tax returns, a demand Trump so far rejected.
