Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee for the White House who announced during a debate watched by 17 million viewers that he has no problems with the size of his private parts, this morning told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos “it’s none of your business” when asked what is his tax rate.
Trump phoned in to Good Morning America where he continued to decline to release his tax returns, citing an ongoing audit. Stephanopoulos said the IRS insists an audit is not a bar to public release of the information, and reminded Trump that, in the past, when he was seeking a casino license he released his taxes while being audited. Trump wasn’t impressed.
“I don’t think they do. But I do say this, I will really gladly give them,” Trump answered, adding, “I have no problem, and it should be and I hope it’s before the election.”
Stephanopoulos asked Trump: “Yes or no, do you believe voters have a right to see your tax returns before they make a final decision?”
The billionaire insisted he has no foreign bank accounts and runs a “clean” business. While refusing to say what is his tax rate, Trump freely acknowledged he works hard to pay as little tax as possible, because the government squanders the money.
Stephanopoulos brought up Hillary Clinton’s emails, because Trump once promised to release his tax returns when she turned over her emails. “There are plenty missing,” Trump shot back, adding, “I know she’s a good friend of yours and I know you worked for them and you didn’t reveal it.” Stephanopoulos countered that the missing emails were from her staffers.
