If he has nothing to hide then he has lots to gain by releasing them, he can stop all the speculation and rumours around their contents and at the same time hit his political rivals with a big fat “told ya so”.

If however there is something to hide the yeah I agree he has nothing to gain from releasing them.....so that’s logically why he hasn’t released them.

Nope. It doesn't matter if there is nothing to see, the media and rivals will spin it negatively.

If you recall, Mitt Romney stupidly released his tax returns when he ran against Obama and they were nitpicked to death focusing on his cap gains, carried interest, etc to make it seem like he is dodging taxes because the tax rates on that type of income is lower in the tax code.

We've been down this path before. It is a fishing expedition to try to find some sliver of something that can be used against Trump.

Well if that’s your view have at it.

To me him not realising them is highly suspicious, you feel differently I guess unless they’re ever released we will never know who is right.

Have you looked up Obama's Tax returns

now you will ask why does that matter

I will say "if You can look up Obama's Tax returns, and explain them to me

then I will believe you can understand President Trumps Tax returns"

If you cannot Explain Obama's tax returns, ( he has less money and assets than Trump )

there is no way in Hell you would understand President Trumps Taxes.

But make no mistake... that’s exactly what it is..

Meh I don’t understand a lot of things, like most folks, so relay on a expert in such matters to educate me and explain it. Kind of like how you might not understand what’s on that MRI scan so get an expert or night not understand that legal procedure so get a lawyer to explain it and so on.

Pretty sure if he released them I could then do my own research and formulate an opinion from there based on what various experts more knowledgeable than myself have said

In any case that’s not an excuse to not release them

We know who is right. The IRS is the final arbiter of the tax code. If he has done something wrong, then the IRS will charge him for tax evasion or force him to pay back taxes. They have done neither.

Releasing tax returns to the public doesn't show anything other than how his income is earned and taxed over a given year. Tax returns don't show debt or wealth. There is more information on the other disclosures that politicians typically fill out.

The problem is that when really wealthy people run for office, it is much easier to use their tax returns against them versus politicians that don't make a ton of money or their income is relatively straight forward.

Don't you find it odd that Obama would release his tax returns but not his academic transcripts? Tax returns are far more invasive personally than academic records. Also, academic records are used for jobs. So what could be so damaging in his academic records?

I mean I don’t know how you can prove that and I think Obama’s taxes are a separate issue but okay.

because as edumakted said

the IRS are the pro's the GOVERNMENT pro's

and you already don't believe them

there are no other experts better besides the Government IRS.

see how easy that was.

No worries, I'm not scared of internet tough guys. They'll get what they deserve in the end if they do seek me out in the real world.

I only pay...


I get no benefit from the government besides roads , cops, fire and schools..

I have no loop holes or tax shelters... I have no million dollar tax firm to hide my income and make the government pay me every year...



The difference between me and you is, that I care WAY more about the billionaire hitting the system for millions of dollars than I do the welfare queen scheming the system for 5 grand a year..


I don’t know who said it but it is dead on...

“Whenever the people who make all the rules and control all the wealth and power Point to those who do not make any rules and do not have any wealth or power and say ...”they are the real problem “...


It is probably BS..


And that is conservatism 101..


“Us politicians and CEOs who make all the rules and laws are not the problem.... oh no..


See that Mexican with only a back pack to his name??? He is the real problem...

Get real, asking for taxes (which every other president has done) is not like having sex in public.
Asking for our tax returns is not equal either, as we are not running for office.

My guess is that other presidents have released theirs because they want to be transparent.
Not because they were forced to or it was the law.
