WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's team continues to be aggressively defiant in response to a New York Times story that says Trump may not have paid federal income taxes for nearly two decades.

Former Congressman Jack Kingston says he's confident that Trump followed the law. He notes that the story said Trump's losses in 1995 were big enough that he could have legally avoided paying taxes for as long as 18 years. And he's accusing the Times of carrying a "very partisan" agenda.
