President Trump is calling the release of part of his 2005 tax return "fake news".

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The tax documents reveal President Trump paid about $38 million in taxes on about $150 million of income in 2005, most of it in the form of the "alternative minimum tax" designed to cut down on people taking too many deductions.  

The documents did not shed any light on concerns about reported ties with Russia. The White House pushed back, saying MSNBC violated the law to push a story about returns from more than a decade ago.

Donald Trump Jr. tweeted "Thank you Rachel Maddow for proving to your #Trump hating followers how successful @realDonaldTrump is."
