Warren remains defiant over tax return battle

Elizabeth Warren Trump

Despite President Trump’s dismissal of calls to release his tax returns, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday castigated him, claiming that “the issue is not over.”

Appearing on NBC’s “Today” show, Warren said, “No, the issue is not over. He promised during the campaign that he would reveal his taxes. In fact, how many clips have you got here … that he would reveal them after this, he would reveal them after that.”

In 2014 and 2015, Trump said he would release his tax returns, yet later asserted that he could not do so until the completion of a tax audit.

Tens of thousands of protesters participated in tax marches across the United States on Saturday, demanding the release of Trump’s tax returns. Trump posted a tweet on Sunday regarding the subject.

“Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!” Trump said, adding in an additional tweet, “I did what was an almost an impossible thing to do for a Republican-easily won the Electoral College! Now Tax Returns are brought up again?”

On Tuesday, Warren contended that the battle regarding Trump’s tax returns will continue.

“People are going to keep demanding it. And they’re going to keep demanding it and making their voices heard on this. Look, why is it the case that people at the very top should get a bunch of tax breaks, should be able to hide their business dealings when everybody else pays, when everybody else gets out there and makes our roads and bridges work, makes our schools work?” Warren said. “Let’s see what Donald Trump is up to.”
