MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough ridiculed Donald Trump on Monday morning after the former president seemed to acknowledge the existence of tax schemes that his company was charged with while denying he knew they were crimes.
At a rally in Sarasota, Florida on Saturday, Trump addressed the indictment brought against the Trump Organization and its CFO Allen Weisselberg last week by the Manhattan district attorney over an alleged tax fraud scheme.
“They go after good, hard-working people for not paying taxes on a company car. ’You didn’t pay tax on the car! Or a company apartment! You used an apartment because you need an apartment because you have to travel too far where your house is. And didn’t pay tax. Or education for your grandchildren,” Trump said, referring to the charges. “I don’t even know. Do you have to, does anybody know the answer to that stuff?”
