Clinton: Trump’s Tax Returns Could Show He ‘Pays No Federal Income Tax’
Hillary Clinton criticized Donald Trump on Sunday when she suggested that Trump was hiding his tax return because he probably didn’t pay any income tax.
“I think he needs to release his tax returns. The only two we have show that he hasn’t paid a penny in taxes,” Clinton said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” referring to a Washington Post report that showed Trump didn’t pay taxes for two years in the late 1970s.
“And yet he goes around talking about ‘Make America great.’ You know? That means paying for our military. That means paying for our roads. That means paying for the [Department of Veterans Affairs]. That means a lot of things.
“And if you’ve got someone running for president who’s afraid to release his tax returns, because it will expose the fact that he pays no federal income tax, I think that’s a big problem.”
The Hill reports:
Trump has said he will release his taxes after an Internal Revenue Service audit is completed but told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos a few weeks ago that his tax rate is “none of your business.”
“It’s none of your business. You’ll see it when I release,” he said during a call-in to “This Week.” “But I fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible.”
