Bernie Sanders Just Showed His Full-Throated Embrace of Capitalism

Hours after Senator Bernie Sanders' town hall aired on Fox News, US President Donald Trump fired up his Twitter app to vent about both the 2020 candidate and the network's newest addition: Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile.

"Hey, President Trump. My wife and I just released 10 years".

That squares with a financial disclosure report that Sanders filed a year ago as a senator, which showed that he earned US$880,000 in royalties from book deals.

During his first presidential bid, Sanders released just one year of his tax returns despite primary rival Hillary Clinton pushing him to follow her lead and release multiple years of tax information.

Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir brushed off those suggestions, telling CNN the candidate's personal wealth had "zero impact" on his policies.

The income from royalties dropped off sharply past year, however, falling from $855,000 to $391,000.

Fire breaks out at top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris
The cathedral was evacuated when the fire alarm was activated around 6.30pm, according to André Finot, a spokesman for Notre Dame. A fire has broken out at the famous Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris and has spread rapidly across the building.

Here's a closer review of his 2014 tax return so you can compare it to his more recent tax returns.

Mr Trump broke from decades of presidential tradition by refusing to show voters his tax returns during his 2016 presidential campaign. They also had a business income of $4,900.

"I regularly field calls from people angry with CAP over something Think Progress was written or posted", the official said.

Former New Hampshire Democratic Party chair Kathy Sullivan said that while she does not see a problem with Sanders' financial status squaring with his commitment to curbing income inequality, she was struck by the way he handled questions about his wealth.

After years of earning less than $300,000, Sanders' income shot up to $1,073,333 in 2016, mostly on the sale of his best-selling book Our Revolution.

Fox News Channel boasted another stellar night of ratings Monday.

Tiger Woods' younger foes watch a master at work
Tiger Woods , 43, celebrated his huge Masters tournament win on April 14 by running into the arms of his 10-year-old son Charlie . But the signs were different when Woods clinched his first title in five years at the Tour Championship in Atlanta last year.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who far out-raised other Democrats in the first quarter by bringing in nearly $18.2 million, received an average of about $443,568 per day.

ThinkProgress is affiliated with the Centre for American Progress, a liberal group, but says it is editorially independent.

The tax returns show that Sanders earned more than $1 million recently, making $1,131,925 in 2017 between himself and his wife Jane and paying a total of $343,882 in taxes at a 30 percent tax rate.

Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Kamala Harris of California, as well as Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, have all already made their 2018 tax returns public.

Other 2018 income included wages from his job as Senator and $51,000 in Social Security earnings, according to his filing. His excuse is that his returns are under audit, but that would not prevent him from releasing tax documents he signed and swore to be true - and certainly does not explain why he refuses to reveal returns from years ago, as his challengers have done.
