President Donald Trump is striking up new speculation about what is inside his tax returns. The uproar comes after his comments made to a reporter about potentially waiting until he leaves office to release the returns.
When a reporter from The Economist asked him if he would release his tax returns as part of a deal with Democrats in regards to tax reform, Trump replied, “I doubt it. Nobody cares about my tax return except for the reporters.” Trump then continued by saying, “At a certain point, that’s something I will consider. But I would never consider it as part of a deal.”
The president has said he is keeping his tax returns private due to an ongoing audit, but Democrats have insisted he release them immediately.
Liberal lawmakers in New York have even gone to the extent of introducing a bill that would mandate the state to publicly post Trump’s tax returns. Of course, the legislation is worded in a way to include anyone elected in a statewide election to federal or state office; but in reality, there’s no denying it was designed to target Trump, a native New Yorker.
