Hours after US President Donald Trump called reports pertaining to his income tax evasion as fake news, social media rolled out dedicated memes to troll Trump's presidency, hair, and his wealth. In a shocking report, The New York Times claimed that Trump had paid just $750 as federal income tax in the past, besides reporting huge financial losses for 11 years in the two decades.
Reacting to the reports, Trump while claiming that he has paid a lot, said, "It's fake news. It's totally fake news. Made up. Fake." The US President even took to the microblogging site to express his anger by tweeting 'Fake News'.

Trump Has Fake Hair? Twitter Believes So
In its report while claiming that Trump devised various ways to evade income tax, had US President spent more than $70,000 to style his hair when he was on 'The Apprentice' and he wrote off the costs as business expense.
