Trump said Americans “don’t care at all” about seeing his tax returns. But he’s definitely wrong about that.

Trump tried to dismiss reporters asking about his tax returns today, claiming that “the only ones” who care about them are the reporters – that the American public is totally uninterested in his finances.

He continued, “I won; I mean, I became president. No, I don’t think they care at all. I don’t think they care at all. I think you care.”

Polls have consistently shown that, actually, a majority of Americans do want to know what’s in Trump’s tax records.

60% of people believe Trump has a responsibility to public release those tax records.

There are obviously reasons he’d want to keep his taxes hidden. There would be information in the returns about Trump’s business dealings and his financial background in detail.

When a reporter tried to mention that presidents have released their tax returns since the 1970s, Trump cut her off, saying, “Oh, gee, I never heard that.”

  1. He is trying to hide something. We the people want him to release his taxes and some one in the goverment needs to insist before the rat is sworn in. He can not get away with it. This man is setting this country up for disaster. He figured he was not gonna win and when he did he decided to cause havoc and boy is he.

  2. Miss Shaw, my name is Susan and I hold a Masters in Sociology from the University of Nevada Reno. There has never been a more important time in US history short of the Civil War. Trump is a very dangerous man with absolutely no qualifications to be President. His only interest are business ones. He has violated so many. Rules established to protect the country. There must be a push through the media to release tax returns, remove his daughter and others from the White House who do not belong there! Use the 25th amendment to stop him- he is not capable of fulfilling the requirements of the office.

  3. America wants to see his tax returns with the exception of his deplorables who are too stupid to care. I mean, how long does an IRS audit take?????? Why hasn’t the IRS finished a 2015 audit yet?????? What are they waiting for…2017? What a joke on Americans….Among all of the terrible things that we already know, Trump is a big time crook, beholding to Russia. What about 2013, 2014 returns? Pathetic!

  4. Last time I saw the numbers your population is one of the lowest of Pres. ELECTS. SIXTY SOME PERCENT WANT TO SEE YOUR TAXES. I FOR ONE BELI’VE THEY WILL SHOW TIES WITH OUR ENEMIES.
    ALSO PUT EVerything in a TRUE BLIND TRUST. ALSO YOU. STOP GENERATING AND OR REPEATING FAKE NEWS.

  5. It should be mandatory for any Presidential candidate to release their tax returns to show transparency to the American Public
