Actually Mr. Trump, Turns Out Americans 'Care a Lot' About Your Tax Returns
President-elect Donald Trump has claimed that the American people “don’t care at all” about whether he releases his tax returns. Turns out, he was wrong.
In fact, new ABC News/Washington Post polling data released on Monday shows that 74 percent of all Americans, including 49 percent of his own supporters, say he should release his tax returns.
What’s more, the number of people curious about Trump’s finances has risen since he’s been elected. “In May, 64 percent said he should release the returns, and in September, 63 percent said he was not justified in withholding them,” ABC News reports.
Last week, the incoming president held a news conference during which he announced that he would not divest his holdings in his business empire and stood by his refusal to release his tax documents.
“You know, the only one that cares about my tax returns are the reporters, OK? They’re the only ones,” he said, in response to a question from a journalist.
“You don’t think the American public is concerned about it?” the reporter followed up, according to CNN.
“No, I don’t think so. I won. And became president,” Trump said. “No, I don’t think they care at all. I don’t think they care at all. I think you care.”
