The Donald is a liar. Plain and simple.


I expect he's trying to cover something up.

And/or - - - he's not being honest about his wealth.


Trump has accused American business and has blasted hedge fund managers for not paying their fair. He's hiding the fact that he doesn't pay "his fair share" either.



No one has to convince me he's a snake.

If I had a business, bottom line money, maybe I'd want someone like Trump.

But, not as president.


Trump says he want to run the country like he runs his businesses...lol....6 times his businesses went through bankruptcy, leaving vendors, contractors and employees empty handed!

Besides, doesn't he know the difference between for profit and non profit? The guy is a walking DUMPSTER FIRE!



Definitely.

I once thought a business man is what this country needed. I was considering voting for Perot. Then I did a lot of reading.

People are not businesses. People are not profit and loss. You can't put 321,368,864 people on a ledger sheet and decide what's right and wrong.

There's a lot of personal human level negotiating needed to run a country.

So after my investigation into how a business man would run America - - - I realized it wouldn't work.



Which is a completely reasonable position to take.

No, Trump has said it - as have other lawyers. You want to call him a liar, fine.


He is a liar. That's a proven fact!



You are a being hypocritical though because you have NOT called Hillary a liar


Why would I? This thread isn't about Hillary, and I don't need to deflect and change the subject.



Do you even for one second think that Trump or anyone else is not crystal clear on yours and others' motives.....


I hope so..........He's about to see his own SHTF and we're about to watch the great orange spray tanned loser lose it! LOL

Wrong - Trump blasted the tax code that allows big business to get away with not paying enough tax. The same way he has blasted the political system for taking money for favours. He's benefited from both, but says says he wants to change it because it is not good for the country. Now, whether you believe his motivations is up to you and your vote will be your judgement.

Care to point me to ANY thread where you have called Hillary a liar and screamed and huffed so much about an issue (plenty to choose from) that she has been less than transparent on?
There is nothing in the world that would get you to vote for Trump, so I am sure you are not his main target group for winning over.
Lashing out about him personally just belies your lack of credible reason for wanting to see his tax returns. Like i said, we all know why, and it's not objective in any way.

When did this thread become about me and my opinion of Hillary? This thread is about Lying Donald Trump and his refusal to release his tax returns, like he demanded of others, and promised the American people to do.

Because it's incredibly hypocritical to scream and whine as much as you are on one hand and then say nada on the other. Just pointing out your true motivation for bleating on about Trump's tax returns. It really has nothing to do with not seeing them does it? Now be honest.

I am really not sure what part of 'I'll release my tax returns after the audit'[sic] that you fail to grasp.

He should know! He's taking advantage of it BIG TIME. That's why he won't release his tax returns. He's going to have a hard convincing the American people he's serious about tax reform, if he's been taking advantage of questionable loop holes.

What I'm failing to do is bite the bait! Lying Donald Trump says he gets audited every year, and has for the past 15 years. There is nothing stopping him from releasing his past tax returns, that have already been released by the IRS. Most candidates release several years worth, even over a decade worth.

Lying Donald won't release his tax returns because he knows that they will expose him as even more of a liar and hypocrite that already obviously is.

He has already said he pays little tax and has been taking advantage of tax loop holes.

We'll have to wait till the audit is fully completed, like Trump has said.
His tax lawyers are Morgan Lewis in Washington - perhaps you should pick it up with them and see if they will give you some more information in the mean time. Ask for Sheri.

His lawyers have made no public statement. The IRS already said that releasing his tax returns will have no effect on the audit.

Actually they have. including the fact that previous years tax returns are tied up with the most recent year. Do your homework, instead of, dare I say, bloviating.

He says he''ll release them when he's not under audit. But they claims he's been under audit for 15 years now, so technically, chances are, he'll always be "under audit."

There is no restriction by the IRS that he not release his tax returns that are under audit.


IRS Commissioner: Even “If You’re Being Audited,” And “You Want To” Release Your Tax Returns, “You Can Do That.” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen responded to Trump’s February claim that he couldn’t release his tax returns due to an audit stating, “From our standpoint, if you’re being audited, and you want to do something else, share that information with your returns, you can do that.” [Politico, 2/26/16]


IRS: Nothing prevents Trump from releasing tax returns

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Friday it would be "rare" for an individual taxpayer to be audited as frequently as Trump says he has been.

However, high earners have a greater chance of being audited than most people. In fiscal year 2015, the audit coverage rate for people making at least $1 million was about 9.55 percent.

For all individuals, the audit coverage rate was 0.84 percent, according to the IRS.

Experts said pointed out that just because Trump is being audited doesn’t mean he’s done anything wrong. “He’s not just a wealthy fellow. He’s a wealthy fellow, I’m sure, with complicated tax returns,” said Zerbe, who has donated to Trump rival Marco Rubio. Trump said shortly after the debate that the IRS may be targeting him because he is Christian.

But the IRS said they do not audit people based on their religion and politics.


Because he was a Christian? He said that? Oh geez.

That is correct, he is free to release them according to the IRS, however he has been advised not to because they will be poured over by literally hundreds of people and runs the risk of the IRS investigating areas they would otherwise not. Pretty simple really.

And you would be very smart to do so. Trump would turn his audit into a public free for all with people all over the country advising the IRS of new areas for investigation on anything they may have missed.

and to be honest, if you think that Clinton, I mean, the DNC has not already been handed a copy of it you are mistaken. If there is anything they are creating the commercials now for release when he publishes if he does. Can you deny that?

No. I asked you if you'd seen a statement from his lawyers. You said you hadn't. Now you're telling me they did release a statement, and that I need to do your research for you?

I don't think so. If you have proof that Trumps lawyers made a public statement regarding the release of his tax returns, post a link, or there is none.
