 Not at all. Tax records really don't prove or disprove anything important.
 Yes, his secrets should be public record. I want to know because every politician does it.

Headline: Trump aide says tax returns wont be made public

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway says President Donald Trump will not release his tax returns, appearing to shut the door on a decades-long tradition of transparency.

Every president since 1976 has released their returns. During the campaign, Trump refused to make his filings public, saying they were under audit by the Internal Revenue Service and saying hed release them after that review is complete.

Conway was asked Sunday about a petition on the White House website signed by more than 200,000 people calling for Trump to release his returns.

If the IRS found nothing wrong in their audit of him, then why release them?

 Quoting: BRIEF
.

If you were in politics, you're going to structure your finances in such a way that your tax return looks a certain way. If you were a lifelong politician, you'd hide stuff in blind trusts so it would never show up in your tax records.

If you were a lifetime politician, youre gonna do everything in your life to pass muster if its exposed to the public, including your tax return, which in politics it is because the tradition is that candidates release them.

Trump is not a Politician.
That's part of his appeal.

Well, I was fine with "they're under audit so I'm waiting" but now "no fuck you, you are forced to do it but I don't have to" attitude is pretty ghey.

Some people here can't accept any Trump negativity as if they have an agreement with themselves not to re-neg on their commitment.

Fair enough, but when I voted for him I agreed to myself that I would, as any other US president before, review his decisions without any subjectiveness.

Anyone here who thinks it's "GREAT!!!!" that he isn't going to release his tax returns are kind-of drinking the koolaid a little too hard IMHO.

I couldn't care less what teams of accountants and lawyers have to say about Donald Trump's taxes.

I care about what the government does with the taxes it robs from the American people.

On the other hand, it's definitely worth giving him a year or two so we can see what all of this is building up to.

I agree with the idea of President's releasing their tax details, on the other hand, I'm not going to regret my vote over this.

This is my position as well. I don't care about his tax records, only what he does. If he said he would never release them and didn't, that would be fine with me. However, I'm disturbed that he said he WOULD release his tax records and now he actually won't. I don't want him to lie to me like other politicians. It's just not acceptable.

almost every person would look at the 2 foot tall stack of documents and go bonkers.
the media would single out lines or sections and put spins on them- more fake news.
who give a shit how much money the super rich have?

actually I don't want to know. I don't want to know how much U.S.Aid Obama sent to his own accounts either.

there is enough rage and hate in America after Obama sodomized the working class for 8 years.

 Quoting: WaitWutt


Perhaps a compromise could be made with some redacted portions with an explanation for the redactions. Or an explanation from our president explaining that, given the dishonest media, the twisting of the truth would preoccupy the news for months and significantly harm the progress of the mandate for positive change he was elected to make. Also, links to his candidate financial filings, and explaining their relatively complete picture of his income and assets could be emphasized.

His past tax records? No. They are private and money earned from private business.

His tax records or financial statements while in office? Yes, but if not required by law, not much can be done.

I'd like to see all of Obummers records he had sealed, like college admissions and such, but we were told to shove it.

Trump needs to say Hillary didn't release her deleted emails so my past tax records stay sealed. Unless Obummer unseals all his records from college, selective service, etc., then I will make an exception on my tax return.

That's what he needs to say.

he lied about locking her up. Not gonna do that, and admitted it "played well during the election" but it's not needed now that he won.

he lied about draining the swamp. Admitted that he thought that term was "hokie" and "terrible" and that he "didn't want to say it" but the first time he did the place cheered and went nuts so he kept saying it.

he lied about not pushing the birther issue

he lied about removing obamacare entirely. He now wants to keep certain parts.

He's a liar like all politicians who says whatever he knows the crowd wants to hear, as he admitted with the drain the swamp phrase.

he's like every other politician
