Trump Is Naïve To Think ‘People Don’t Care’ About His Tax Returns

Donald Trump will reportedly release his tax returns after his audit is complete, but he claims that the public doesn’t care much about them.

Many people have become obsessed with any negative press on the bigoted Donald Trump, and his shady behavior regarding releasing his tax returns is making headlines again. 

The Republican presidential candidate has yet to release his tax returns, causing many of us to believe he may have something to hide.

Trump is now saying that people don’t care about his tax returns, and the only people who care are members of the press, Yahoo reports.

“As far as my tax returns are concerned, the only one that cares is the press, I will tell you. And even the press, I’ll tell you, it’s not a big deal,” he said. “I think people don’t care.”

Trump also said that he will not release his tax returns before November, unless the audit on his returns is completed by Election Day, according to the Associated Press.

The presidential candidate is incorrect for believing people don’t care about his tax returns. Voters have criticized him over it, and last month Warren Barrett spoke about Trump’s reluctant behavior, TIME reports.

At a Hillary Clinton campaign rally, the billionaire investor, said, “You’re only afraid if you’ve got something to be afraid about. He’s not afraid because of the IRS. He’s afraid because of you.”

Mike Pence, the Republican vice presidential candidate, said, “I’m releasing my tax returns, Donald Trump will release his tax returns. I’ll give mine to y'all this week, and he’s going to provide his after a routine audit is done.”

Trump didn’t give the media a set release date saying, “When the audit is done, I’ll release them. I don’t know when that’s gonna be, it could be soon, it could be not.”

Trump seems hesitant about releasing his tax returns, possibly because of what the details in them may reveal. The presidential candidate's way of hiding behind his audit isn't fooling most of us, though.
