President Donald Trump revealed on Tuesday that he had paid $38 million in taxes in 2005 while raking in more than $150 million in income.

The White House made the announcement shortly after MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow announced on Twitter that the network had obtained two pages of the 2005 returns.

A White House statement claimed that Trump, as the head of his real estate empire, had a responsibility “to pay no more taxes than legally required.”

Trump previously refused to release any tax information, claiming that he could not do so because he is under audit.

Maddow said on the show that she received the documents from investigative journalist David Cay Johnston, who said they appeared in his mailbox.
