Mike Huckabee on bombshell Trump taxes report: ‘So what? — I didn’t elect him to be my tax accountant’

Speaking on Fox News this Monday, network contributor Mike Huckabee blew off the New York Times’ bombshell report regarding President Trump’s tax history, first saying that if the report comes from the Times, it lacks credibility.

But even if the report is true, Huckabee says, “So what?”

“In a big business operation like he runs, there is a good likelihood that with all of the various business losses that he had from running for president when he wasn’t overseeing his business, maybe that’s so,” Huckabee said on Fox & Friends. “I don’t know. Frankly, I don’t care.”

“I didn’t elect him to be my tax accountant,” Huckabee continued. “I elected him to be president, and I’m really happy with the job that he’s doing. And when The New York Times blows this horn, you know, I’ve just got a complete hearing loss for it.”
