Trump won't release them because he lied about how much he is worth. Also, it may show that he paid a pretty low rate in taxes, which will invite criticism. He should release them as a Presidential candidate, but he won't and he isn't required to...and it wouldn't make any difference to his followers anyway. So we may as well move on.

So that walls ok, but replacing it with another wall, is "racist"..?

And you guys wonder why we consider Democrats a complete joke anymore..

btw, whats so "crappy" about it? how often should we replace a wall? Please provide some statistics because that sure in hell looks like a wall you claimed didnt exist..

Where do you think all of that money went?

New Clinton speech disclosures reveal foundation's take - POLITICO
What does this have to do with tax returns and us knowing how much Clinton was paid for her speeches? You're grasping for straws.

note the backpeddling going on..

If you are claiming that Trump should release his income tax returns, then clearly Clinton should release ALL of their income, including their foundation, and WHO donates to it..

You cant ask for one, and not the other, without looking like a hypocrite

When did I say anything about racism? I stated that a wall, as proposed by Trump, would be a massive waste of time, money and resources as most drugs and people are smuggled underground, via boat, or over a border crossing.

LOL. What you posted a photo of is the most secure part of a wall that has been around for years. Most of the "wall" is not much more than a stream, or a wooden fence.

Lastly, when did I claim no wall existed? I claimed that a new, massive wall like the one proposed by Trump has not been approved nor funded.

You are full of it!

Trump has based his entire campaign on his financial success, portraying everyone else as losers. It seems obvious that he doesn't want to release his tax returns because they likely show him to be far less successful than he constantly brags. Look how angry he was when he was held accountable for the donation to veterans. It's as if he never planned to donate anything and was hoping no one would find out.

So now you want presidential candidates to disclose EVERYTHING, even finances of foundations a candidate may be involved with, Yet, you still do not think it is necessary that Trump disclose his tax returns? The mind boggles at your logic... LOL

No - the best plan of action would be to vote for the person who has provided enough information for you to make an informed decision.

Trump obviously has something to hide.

I think one reason is that he couldn't care less after the PR is out. All that really matters to him is the impression the 'brand' makes.

The other reason is that he is not a good business person and does not hire the best at people at anything. His campaign has been a disorganized mess, and I have a feeling his businesses are the same. They even forgot to register his big ole private jet. Nobody in his entire organization remembered to do this?

Oh officer--uh--I just forgot to renew my car registration and none of my 'people' remembered either. 'kay?
