Funny when Romney was running how Trump said he had to release his tax returns but now Trump refuses to do so.

Trump also said Romney needed to provide his tax returns when he ran in 2012. Why is Trump so afraid to apply the same criteria to himself?

Blum guesses that the Trump tax returns take full advantage of offshore arrangements to defer income from licensing his name. “His name could become a trademark owned by an offshore shell company in a tax haven and the shell would license its use. That income would remain untaxed until repatriated,” said Blum. “Imagine the name of a U.S. president being the property of an offshore shell!”

These are extremely legitimate concerns.
If you believe those are legit concerns you should be outraged that the Clinton Foundation wont release the list of thousands of donators. Furthermore, any offshore "oil company" would appear in a DIFFERENT tax return, hence the "COMPANY" in your response, and not on his personal tax returns.

You're either rambling nonsense, trying to find justification for something that really doesnt matter, or you know nothing about taxes at which point everyone should just ignore your posting...

I don't need to live with Trump's hypocrisy. I would like to see Trump grovel at the feet of Romney and beg for forgiveness. Romney is holding Trump to the same standard Trump held Romney to.

Clinton has released decades of tax returns just like every presidential candidate over the past forty years. Trump complains when people wanted proof he donated millions to veterans like he claimed.

And again, you are making accusations that have no correlation to the argument, three times now. Comparing presidents to people on Social Security, comparing presidents to people in the military and now likening offshoring to an "oil company" when Trump is known for licensing his own name.

Bull $hit. It is not the criminal things that Trump is worried about.


His returns will show: 1) He makes a whole lot less than he has led people to believe.
2) The branding rights for the "Trump" name are owned by an offshore corporation.
3) 90%+ of his income is from licensing his name, all off shore.
4) Most Trump products are produced in third world nations and most profits are diverted from the US.
5) He uses ever questionable deduction he can against his US income, which he reduces to near zero tax liability. No criminal action is taken if the questionable deduction is caught, just that the deduction is disallowed and any fine or interest is negotiable.


Trumps image would suffer if all of the above was common knowledge.


Don Trump has contributed ZERO to the benefit of the USA, but now wants to be king.
I am amazed the **********s don't have a problem with that.

You know what would clear it up? Trump's tax returns. In absence of the same transparency he demanded of Romney, there is no choice but to assume he is hiding returns that will be very very very damaging to him in an election.

This is likely all true considering his refusal to release his tax returns, especially after demanded Romney release his.

Thats NOT how it works.. You dont get to just make **** up and then claim.. well he needs to "clear it up"..

Only someone suffering from some sort of mental derangement would hold such a position.

So was Trump mentally deranged when he demanded Romney's tax returns?

There is no law requiring him to do so either.

I find it odd that the Left doesn't care about Hillary's finances, her scandals (such as "cattle futures") and the "Clinton Foundation," but they get upset about Trump not releasing his taxes.

Clinton is as dishonest as the come, but they want to see Trump's tax return to see if there is any dishonesty.
