Maybe this is much ado about nothing, but so might find it reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s emails or her latest: her speech transcripts to Goldman-Sachs.
But, former Governor of Massachusetts and presidential candidate Mitt Romney seems to believe that there could be a bombshell in Trump’s tax returns.
Jeb Bush released 33 years of tax returns, and most of the other candidates have released theirs. Romney seems to think that Trump is reluctant to do so, though he has promised to have this done a while back.
While speaking with Neil Cavuto, Romney said:
“Either he’s not as anywhere near as wealthy as he says he is or he hasn’t been paying the kind of taxes we would expect him to pay, or perhaps he hasn’t been giving money to the vets or to the disabled like he’s been telling us he’s been doing,”
“The reason that I think there’s a bombshell in there is because every time he’s asked about his taxes he dodges and delays and says, ‘well, we’re working on it,'”
Trump likes to talk about how wealthy he is, so he should be willing to show his tax returns.
“When people decide they don’t want to give you their taxes, it’s usually because there’s something they don’t want you to see,” he said.
Recall that Romney was criticized for only paying 15 percent in taxes when he released his tax returns. Some believe that was one of the key reasons Obama was able to secure a second term. The irony is Romney’s tax returns showed that he gave an outrageous amount to charity. The lesson: give too little to government in the eyes of Liberals is not remedied by giving outrageously to charity.
As for Trump, earlier this month he told John Dickerson on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that he plans on releasing his tax returns “over the next three, four months.”
“We’re working on them very hard, and they will be very good,” Trump said.
Well they’d better be.
Needless to say, Romney’s comment about Trump has already landed him on Trump’s Twitter naughty list.
When Mitt Romney asked me for my endorsement last time around, he was so awkward and goofy that we all should have known he could not win!
