Why would he? It's not a requirement.

Please tell me what the law is that requires a presidential candidate to present his personal finances for jerks to gawk at and talk about when what is important is where he stands on the issues. His finances are none of our business and I have no interest in seeing them.

Now that you mention it, I'd love to see his grades from Wharton , too. Plus his undergraduate grades, wherever that was. Bet they're not outstanding.

You'd never know what his net worth is from his tax returns.

He probably does have a large income but more likely he pays little if any taxes on any of it and would get nailed if that news got out.

Trump did not pay any income taxes. So if he releases his returns everyone would know the con man is a hypocrite for castigating others.

He's afraid to show us that he paid no income taxes.

The only reason for auditing him for 15 years (if that is true) is that he cheats on his taxes and he's been caught.

Every president since Nixon has released their returns. Every candidate from the other party has, as well. For forty years, unbroken, until Trump. Trump! The Special Snowflake! Well, he's special alright and he is indeed a flake.

"Stupid tradition?" Gosh, I'm hoping that all candidates present their birth certificate (LONG FORM ONLY PLEASE), like Obama was cajoled to do by... TRUMP! Funny how the Orange Man works, huh? Wants other people to be accountable, but he will not be so held.

What can we learn? Well, we can learn how they made their money, whether they engaged in financial activity offshore, their tax rate (Romney's was, I believe, anaemic 14%). We can learn lots of interesting and indeed important things.

Why would you be against knowing how a candidate who aspires to be CEO of the US made, managed and accounted for their financial transactions? Trump boasts about how much he's worth, so let's see it: show America the money.

I ask again, what is Trump hiding?

The guy is a total mess, a walking BS dispenser, a crude, vulgar no nothing. Which is why the wingers love him.

There is no law. You know that though. What there is is the expectation that if you want millions of people to elect you to lead their country that you provide some modicum of insight into your life, and your finances are part of that.

The guy working at dairy mart has his credit checked, the guy running the country should have his tax returns seen by his future employers. We the people.

This isnt a hard concept.
