Trump Says He Could Release Taxes After End of Audit…Maybe

submit to reddit

President Donald Trump has now said he might well release his taxes at the end of a reportedly ongoing audit. He made the announcement in an interview aired on Sunday’s Face the Nation. POTUS didn’t supply a specific timeframe, or even say whether he’d do it or not.

“It could happen soon, I don’t know,” he said. “I think it’s pretty routine to be honest with you, then I’ll make a decision.”

His unwillingness to release his tax returns during the 2016 campaign supplied critics with consistent ammunition. The move, or lack thereof, broke a decades-old tradition followed by viable presidential candidates. Opponents believe these documents would tell a lot about how Trump’s financial entanglements would affect his ability to lead.

In New York State, lawmakers recently introduced a bill that’d require statewide elected figures, including the president, to release their tax returns.
