Tonight president trump is refusing to directly address allegations he avoided paying any federal income tax for years.

The new york times says it has documents showing president trump paid only 750 dollars in income tax his first year in office... that his businesses are losing money.... and that he personally owes 421 million dollars on loans made to his companies.

Today... the speaker of the house suggested those debts could be a threat to national security.

Cbs's ben tracy is at the white house.

Tonight president trump is not answering questions about tax records he's long sought to conceal.

Shouted questions in a bombshell report the new york times obtained tax return data covering more than two decades.

It shows president trump paid just 750 dollars in federal income tax in 2016 and 2017...the same amount a single adult making about 18,000 dollars would owe...and in 10 of the 15 years before that he paid nothing because his businesses lost so much money.

Biden ad the biden campaign turned the tax revelations into an ad showing what average americans pay.

The times report contradicts mr trump's billionaire business guru image.

Many of his businesses including golf courses and hotels report losing large amounts of money.

The president also used tax deductions to fund his lavish lifestyle&writing off expenses for housing, aircraft, and even 70- thousand dollars in hairstyling for his tv appearances.

It's totally fake news.

It's made up, fake.

On sunday the president denied the report.

Today he defended his use of "depreciation" and "tax credits" in a pair of tweets.

Mr trump hasrump has long claimed there's nothing to hide in his tax returns while refusing to release them.

I look forward to releasing many things.

I'm going to release many things and people will really shocked.

The documents obtained by the times show the irs is auditing a questionable 73 million dollar tax refund the president claimed and could be forced to pay back with interest.

The records also show mr trump took in 73 million dollars from foreign deals during his first two years in office and is now facing hundreds of millions of dollars in loans coming due.

Pelosi sot: this president appears to have over 400 million dollars in debt or 420 whatever it is, million dollars in debt.

To whom?

Different countries?

What is the leverage they have.

So for me this is a national security question.

Tag: according to the new york times the tax documents also show that the president's daughter ivanka trump was paid $750 thousand dollars in unspecified consulting fees while she was an employee of the trump organization.

This could have had the family reduce it's overall tax bill.

Don't go anywhere.

Cash 3 lottery gfx goes here the month of september represents a lot of things..

The start of fall, the kickoff of football season... but tonight we're turning our attention to a matter that can be a little more serious.

September is national newborn screening awareness month.

Dr. pam sykes starts off our conversation in tonight's health talk with baptist.

No script billboard attached stinger a full-grown triangle and i will talk about newborn screening delivery screening is a test on a small blood sample which is performed on all newborns before they are discharged from hospital screening is done before discharge to identify serious conditions as soon as possible that may require special care will further testing the conditions for which your baby will be screened for individually very rare however some are very serious and can result in mental retardation or death not treated the babies with these conditions appear normal at birth is only with time condition affects the babies mental or physical development causing other medical problems which could result in permanent damage to the newborn screening helps us identify babies you need treatment such as medication or special diets the law requires that all babies born mississippi be screened prior to discharge the only legal reason for not collecting a screening specimen is parent objects such testing for religious reasons did you refuse to have the screen performed on your baby you will be asked to sign a form stating your virtues to have your baby screened for these very serious conditions this form will go into your baby's medical records newborn screening tests are reliable and may not always detect a disorder and your baby is sick talk to the baby's doctor as soon as possible join us next time ole miss hits the road for the first time this season to play kentucky...courtne y has more on the rebels quarterback situation, next in sports spx open following mississippi state's and quaterback k.j.

Costello's season opening performance...a lot of hype is already building for what the bulldogs can do for the rest of the season m-s-u cracked into the top 25 ranked at number 16 in the ap top 25 poll for the team's highest ranking since 2018 costello was named the s-e-c offensive player of the week amongst countless other awards following his 623 yard and 5 touchdown performance against the tigers while that is plenty to get excited about if you're a mississippi state fan...coach leach says there's still plenty of room for this bulldog team to grow "i'll be the first to tell you, our team and k.j.

All combined probably aren't nearly as good as your impression.

I feel like we have a long way to go.

I think there's a lot of work we can do and what's fulfilling about it is like i said we played hard and we had a winning effort but i see a lot of things we can do better and so do our coaches and our players do to.

That's the other thing they're committed to getting better.

I hope we can take a big step in that direction this week."

Arkansas heads into starkville this weekend after suffering a second half collapse last weekend against fourth ranked georgia the hogs ended up losing to the bulldogs 37-10 in arkansas home opener... while the hogs must prepare for another ranked- bulldog team...arkansas head coach sam pittman is throwing out last weekends playbook to prepare we're going to obviously spend more time on the passing game, but with kylin hill they have a really good offensive line and really impressed with this cole smith kid they have at center.

He does a great job for them.

They can run the football.

They're huge up front.

They can run the football and of course they have a great back there so you're going to have to stop the passing game.

We're going to spend more time on that this week."

Ole miss might've not named a starting quarterback before hosting florida in the season opener however, it was matt corral who was taking a majority of the reps for the rebels besides the obvious that the rebels fell to the gators, 51-33 the offense wasn't the problem ole miss still managed to total 613 yards of total offense and corral finished going 22-31 for 395 passing yards 3 touchdowns and one pick as the rebels prepare to head to kentucky for week two of s-e-c play...head coach lane kiffin looks to clean up some of corral's play "i think he did good job with his feet, getting out of trouble.

I think he was very composed, really good at adjusting with him on the sidelines.

Both quarterbacks were.

His feet are a bit all over the place at times in the passing game.

We got to clean that up since he was late on some balls that were really open that ended up being completed that could have been touchdowns."

Four full weeks of high school football down and thankfully still plenty more to go as the season grows longer...the play becomes better and the top five plays are hard to choose however, someone has to make the decisions...that being said...here's this weeks top five plays from week four of the endzone #5...cal-city hosting north pontotoc...q-b jackson lee throws to thomas clayton for the money score...cats go up 8-0 after the 2 pt conversion...city powers past the vvmen 36-14 #4..defending 2x champs nanih waiya....austin sanders with the handoff..plunges into the endzone...warriors out to a 7-nothing lead..warriors win 35-14 #3 west lowndes hosting vardaman...check out the power arm on this panther...qb melvin crawford rolls right and his cordarius mcgee for the score...panthers get the shutout 41- 0 #2...you knew this would be in here...the greenies hosting lafayette...chris ivy with the need for speed....takes it in himself...point city keeps on winning #1...the new albany bulldogs with bulldoze you for wins...watch out...c-j hill plows his way into the endzone...new albany would top amory 31-10 still to come..
