CNN anchor Poppy Harlow shut down White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern on Monday after he repeatedly deflected her inquiries into President Trump's taxes.

The New York Times released a bombshell report on Trump's finances Sunday night, which showed he only paid $750 in federal income taxes for his first two years in office. The report also revealed in 10 of the last 15 years Trump paid zero federal income taxes after losing far more money than he made.

CNN host Poppy Harlow lost patience with a White House spokesperson on Monday afternoon after he deflected questions about the New York Times reporting on Donald Trump ' s taxes by trying to smear the paper and the reporters behind the bombshell report.

"What is true?" Harlow asked twice. "How much federal income tax did the president pay in 2016 and 2017? All I'm looking for is a number."

Morgenstein responded that the president and his attorney stated he paid millions in taxes. But when Harlow asked specifically about federal income tax — which an average American taxpayer paid $12,199 in 2017 — Morgenstern instead brought up his opponent Joe Biden's son.

"You should be asking where are the taxes on Hunter [Biden] $3.5 million from Russia," he asked.

"I absolutely should NOT be asking the president's spokesman about someone who is not germane to this conversation, who is not running the president," she replied.

Trump's Tax Records Show Hundreds of Millions of Dollars in Debt, New York Times Reports

  Trump's Tax Records Show Hundreds of Millions of Dollars in Debt, New York Times Reports The New York Times has obtained Donald Trump's tax information covering the past two decades and found that the president has paid a total of $1,500 in federal taxes since taking office and paid no income tax at all 10 of the previous 15 years because he reported losing more money than he made each year. President Trump has avoided releasing his tax records since before he secured the Republican nomination, but the New York Times reported Sunday that his tax information reveals his finances have been in trouble for 20-plus years.

Trying to deflect from the New York Times report, Trump at a Sunday news conference touted his new Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett and It' s totally fake news . Made-up, fake. We went through the same stories, you could've asked me the same questions four years ago," the President

"You're not going to answer that question?" Morgenstern said, talking over Harlow.

"Because I ask the questions," Harlow responded. "I'm glad you're here. I'm going to keep asking them."

Morgenstern later said without proof that the Times piece was a "political hit" orchestrated with Democrats.

"It is NOT okay for you to accuse [the Times] with no facts with coordinating with the Democratic Party. Please stop doing that or this interview will end," Harlow replied.

"You can put the entire thing to bed if the President would release the records and show the American people what he says is true. Why will he not do that?" she inquired.

After Harlow labeled her questioning as another press attack on the president, Harlow extended an invitation for him to appear on the show.

History Suggests Fox News Will Win Cable News Ratings for 1st Presidential Debate

  History Suggests Fox News Will Win Cable News Ratings for 1st Presidential Debate If history is any indicator, Fox News will handily sweep cable competitors CNN and MSNBC in total average viewers for Tuesday night's presidential debate, the first between Republican incumbent President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The winner in the key demo of viewers between 25 and 54, however, might be CNN, which won the advertiser-coveted age demo two of the last three cycles. In 2008, according to Nielsen Media Research, 8.211 million total average viewers watched Fox News as Democratic nominee Barack Obama took on his senatorial colleague Republican John McCain. CNN was close behind with 7.140 total average viewers for the 9 p.m.

CNN host Poppy Harlow pulled up a Republican senator on Thursday morning after he attempted to blow off Donald Trump ’ s repeated assertions that “You heard the president many times during the campaign say that Mexico would pay for the wall, right?” Harlow asked Kennedy, who admitted he did.

President Donald Trump now says that he was not kidding when he told rallygoers over the weekend that he asked staff to slow down coronavirus testing, undercutting senior members of his own administration who said the comment was made in jest.
