Kamala Harris Asks Trump If His $421M Debt Is Owed To Foreign Nations

After the New York Times published a report Sunday (September 27) on President Donald Trump's tax information, vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris has a few questions.

The Democratic California senator responded to the Times' article on The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell Monday night (September 28).

The newspaper got over two decades of the Trump's tax returns, which revealed he owed $421 million to unknown lenders.

Harris questioned who Trump owes money to and if it has an impact on his decision making.

“Who does he owe the money to? Tell us, who do you owe the money to? And do you owe debt to any foreign nation?” she asked. “Do you owe anybody money who is impacted by any decision you make as president of the United States? We need to know that. The American people have the right to know that when the president of the United States acts, he acts with their priorities in mind, not with his priorities in mind.”

The Times reported that Trump did not pay taxes at all between 2000 and 2015 due to huge losses. The report also showed Trump only paid $750 in taxes in 2016 and 2017, the year her was elected and his first full term in office.

“I honestly couldn’t believe it. Literally I thought that someone left off the three zeros after a comma. I honestly couldn’t believe it,” Harris said. “Not only is it shocking, really shocking, truly shocking, but it’s so unfair. And I guess that’s really how I feel mostly about it. It’s just not right.”
