READ: Donald Trump Responds on Twitter to New York Times Expose, Doesn’t Deny It

Missing something there?

President Donald Trump frequently claimed on the campaign trail that he’d become a self-made billionaire after receiving “a small loan of a million dollars” from his father, Fred Trump.

After a bombshell special investigation from The New York Times revealed that Trump had actually received at least $415 million dollars––often illegally or unethically––from his father, the president took to Twitter to decry the paper.

Trump bashing the New York Times is hardly new, but what’s shocking is what Trump left out. When it comes to sexual assault allegations, the president advises the accused to “deny, deny, deny,” he doesn’t seem to be taking his own advice when it comes to tax fraud.

Many were quick to point out that, while Trump clearly didn’t like the story, he stayed mum on whether it was true.

The president is often quick to claim that bad press against him is outright false (even when it’s true), so many took this non-denial as confirmation of the story’s claims.

The Times article appears to confirm that the president and his father conspired to skirt millions of dollars in taxes.

It has some resurrecting the calls for Donald Trump to do something he’s been pressured to do since he was a candidate.
