  3. If a Democrat President didn't show his or her's tax returns when they become President. I think the Republicans and their followers will be all over them.

  4. No, Americans don’t care about his taxes you are wrong Pelosi. I don’t give a rats rear end about his tax returns. Really? You think ANY of those politicians release ANYTHING factual ANYTIME? Get real. It’s the pot calling the kettle black on both sides of the aisle

  5. Well he said dept is good and he became rich by being in dept once upon a time. Makes a person think what type of bills$it it wrote off for his taxes. It would show a lot, I am positive.

  6. That's wrong, he needs to show his tax returns like any other president. If he doesn't take him out office now..why should everyone else have too show their tax returns why can't he

  7. So pelosi is a multi millionaire [as all the rest],on 200k yr.lets see[ their] taxes and underhand payments[ thank you so much for the help, will have to check my phone..btw..USA USA -You Communist need to go

  8. Tax returns are PRIVATE and certainly should not be released to someone with no just cause. I wish the Dumocrats would govern our country and work on national issues that affect the citizens.

  9. Al Sharpton committed tax fraud and no one cares..why do you fools care about Trump’s taxes? Rachel Maddow already “leaked” his taxes from 2005 and he paid a crap ton of taxes that year.

  10. Folks: Trumps tax returns dating back to 1990 will reveal dirty business dealings with Russia. Back the in nineties Trump was one billion in debt from his bad business deals.  Also, the USSR changed to Russia, and all Russian (government) factories were evenly distributed to the Russian citizens in the form allocated shares. Most the Russians didn't value those shares as meaningful financial assets, so thus sold their shares (for pennies on a dollar) to smart Russian businessmen who went on to be billionaire oligarchs flush with billions.  The oligarchs sought to get their money out of Russia. So? They laundered their money by buying Trumps condos and other real-estate at wildly inflated prices, thus helping Trump to "get, out of the hole".  I believe Trump/Kushner have maintained a business relationship with Russia to this day.  Nancy, GET THOSE TAX RECORDS AND MAKE THEM PUBLIC!

  11. More propaganda and sensationalism, no surprise. The Southern District of New York investigation has had them for 2 years now and nothing to see, nada. Does everyone forget this man has been the most investigated individual on the face of this earth for over two years now. Over 20 million of tax payers cash and what do they have… zilch, we are all still waiting.

  12. Trump wants to hide 3 things:
    1. How little actual taxes he pays.
    2. How he's not a rich as he has been saying.
    3. All the foreign money(Russian & Saudi Arabia) that comes into the Trump organization.

  13. There is nowhere in the Constitution where a president or politician has to release their tax returns republicans thinks that it’s funny that y’all have to play dirty because you know y’all cannot beat him straight up that’s why there are so many investigations against Trump that have not been proven because y’all are that desperate and in 2020 Democrats will be so focused on beating each other Trump will get reelected

  14. ALL of Trumps actions are NOT the actions of an innocent man.

    And if Trump is indeed guilty of crimes… These Republicans should be charged as accessories..
