In One Tweet Mayor de Blasio of NYC Humiliates Trump


The Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio slammed President Trump on Tuesday via Twitter. “See, President Trump? It’s not that hard,” de Blasio tweeted and he showed a copy of his 2016 federal taxes. The New York Daily News reports:

The couple reported an adjusted gross income of $220,651, and paid a total of $69,523 in federal, state and city taxes — an effective tax rate of 31.51%, according to Henry Berger, special counsel to the mayor.
Hizzoner drew an annual salary of $217,217, listing his occupation as an “elected official.” McCray, who heads the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and listed her occupation as a writer, does not draw a salary from the fund.

Two homes that de Blasio rents in Park Slope brought in more than $100,000 in combined rental income: $56,500 for a two-family home he inherited and has rented for years and $49,500 for the family residence where he lived before moving to Gracie Mansion.

But the couple reported taking a loss on both properties after mortgage interest, repairs ($573 worth on the two-family, $250 on his former home), depreciation, insurance, legal fees and other expenses. They reported a $5,480 loss on the two-family and $757 loss on the single-family home.
De Blasio, who has called for freezes of rent in rent-stabilized buildings, has raised the rent on two units in one of the properties, citing repairs and expenses.

The couple donated $2,088 to charity, according to the returns.

See Mr. President it really isn’t that hard and we know how much you love Twitter!
