As we’ve written about many times here, the call for Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump to release his tax returns continues to grow louder.
Trump has said countless times he will release his returns after the completion of a routine IRS audit he is currently undergoing. Trump says his stance is based on the legal advice of his attorneys and legal experts. However, as we’ve also said in the past, there is no legal reason Trump can’t release his returns in the name of transparency.
The latest twist in this tax return debate came recently when Trump appeared on the Bill O’Reilly show on the Fox News Channel. During an interview with O’Reilly, Trump may have admitted that there is nothing stopping him from releasing his returns.
“When is she going to release her emails?” Trump said of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “She probably knows how to find it. Let her release her emails and I will release my tax returns immediately.”
Trump’s latest comments come just a day after he told ABC News that people aren’t interested in seeing his tax returns.
“I think people don’t care,” said in an interview. “I don’t think anybody cares, except some members of the press.”
If Trump doesn’t release his tax returns in time for Election Day, he will be the first Presidential candidate since Richard Nixon not to do so. What do you think? Do you care about Donald Trump not releasing his tax returns?
