I kind of agree with that to some extent, but only so far as any information an employer might be allowed access to.
In theory, everyone in government is an employee to we the people. As such, I agree that we should have access to any and ALL information that any employer is expected to have.
That said... are employers allowed access to one's tax returns?
Also this applies to all of them, not just the POTUS, so let's get on that...
President Donald Trump is closer to losing control of his tax filings after years of defying a modern presidential norm of disclosing them to the public. A federal judge in New York ruled that Trump can’t stop his accountants, Mazars USA LLP, from turning over his taxes and other financial documents to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., whose office is investigating whether the Trump Organization falsified business records related to hush-money payments.
If he has nothing to hide then why not prove his haters wrong?

So you think Tax returns include dodgy payments.
I think that Michael Cohen testified that Trump regularly alters his financial statements, lowering his property values for tax purposes and elevates them for bank loan purposes.

He was all about the Obama birth certificate. He demanded we see it!
Well, he should just release his taxes. If he’s got nothing to hide then just release them.
For those on the right who say “he doesn’t have to”, you wouldn’t have that same response to a democratic president who failed to release their taxes. You just wouldn’t.
Do you think it's illegal for a private citizen to pay another private citizen to shut up about an affair? lol you guys are so desperate.
Apparently, lying to Congress about getting a blow job is an impeachable offense.
lying to Congress
The hush money payments are, supposedly, election finance violations.
Cohen testified that Trump often adjusts property values - lowers them for tax purposes, and elevates them for banking purposes.

He's in a public position. If he cared about privacy maybe he shouldn't have applied to be a public servant? Someone in his position should be required to make his financials public, that goes for anyone from the state level in government and up in my opinion, D or R.
