CNN’s Alesci: MSNBC Trump Tax Story ‘Seems Like a Positive Outcome’ for Trump

On Tuesday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” CNN Money Correspondent Cristina Alesci said that MSNBC’s story on part of President Trump’s 2005 tax return resulted in a headline that is “pretty positive” for the president because it shows “he made a decent amount of money,” and “paid taxes in 2005.”

Alesci said, “[T]he bottom line is, the headline is pretty positive for Trump. Looks like he made a decent amount of money, putting to bed any rumors or myths that he’s not a successful businessman. And he paid taxes in 2005. So, it seems like a positive outcome for him.”
