White House: Trump paid $38 million in income tax in 2005

President Donald Trump paid $38 million in taxes on income of more than $150 million in 2005, the White House confirmed on Tuesday.

He also paid "millions of dollars in other taxes such as sales and excise taxes and employment taxes," an official said, without giving further details.
