Will President Trump Release His Tax Returns?

818 ratings | 77765 views
President Donald Trump has yet to release his tax returns despite being the only presidential candidate from a major party not to do so in the last 40 years. The issue of Trump's tax returns is coming to a head as the Democratic controlled House Ways and Means Committee has subpoenaed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig. Even as Trump refuses to release his returns, the New York Times said it obtained printouts from IRS tax transcripts showing losses of more than $1 billion from 1985 to 1994. » Subscribe to CNBC: https://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC » Subscribe to CNBC TV: https://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCtelevision » Subscribe to CNBC Classic: https://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCclassic About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

All Presidential candidates should show Taxes and Birth Certificates prior to even getting on a Primary Ballot... It's not that hard you can't register for your kids for sports or get a mortgage without either... It's not that high of bar to set... I say both of these requirements should be federal law...

It's not about whether he is doing anything illegal with his taxes necessarily. It is that he doesn't want us to see that he is not nearly as wealthy as he wants people to think. Just like he forgot the other $399 million his daddy gave him when he claimed to have only gotten $1 million and be "self-made", LOL.

Well, it would only be fair to see ALL of our elected members of Congress Tax returns. I am especially interested on whether Schumer and Pelosi will account for the millions "El Chapo" stated he paid to them.

As powerless Democrats I would like to say Trump doesn't have to show his Tax Returns. Look at all the other stuff we haven't been able to make him do. I have lost total faith in the Democratic party. Hillary is lucky that Trump haven't thrown her in jail, she's been awfully quiet, she's like a little quiet church mouse🐭🐁🐀

Dangling that meatless bone, in front of the Democrats, going on three years, its priceless- because its meatless. **The Democrats- a bunch of hungry, starving wolves!!** And they are happy, for now, gnawing bone, after 3 years. *
Martin Ljubic (3 months ago)
Good to see Congress score after 3 years of effort. Americans are rightly proud to have MORONS hard at work on their behalf. President Trump, is just so fantastically good that future tax legislation can be drafted based solely on his tax returns. So goes the psycho logic embraced by the Democrats. **We The People know, leaking will be the name of the game!!** **And Maxine Waters, is the oldest leaking bowel of them all!!** **And leaking tax returns ... that ... Constitutionally ... is overreach!!** **That will make for a Constitutional Crisis!!**

NOBODY CARES ABOUT HIS DAM TAX RETURNS. He has the legal right not to provide them. Asking for six years of tax returns to look for a crime. Partisan hacks like this phony tax return documentary. Nobody cares about his tax returns! He will not and I hope he never releases his tax returns. He had a loss but he didn’t break any laws. How about doing a documentary on Hillary Clinton and that fake “Clinton Foundation.”

@Si ms After reading that lengthy paragraph and glancing at your channel videos, I'm of the distinct impression that you may be one those ''conspiracy-minded' types. Frankly, the sum of the evidence found, pretty much renders your argument & logic...[to me and likely to most others]... rather unconvincing.

Better question, is the democratic owned media ever going to get therapy for TDS? Are democrats ever going to start applying law equally? First it was prostitute pee tapes, 100% fabricated, dem media pushed it as proven fact. Then it was sexist comments, lies about what he actually said, dem media pushed it as factual sexual harassment. Then it was russian conspiracy, 100% fabricated, dem media pushed it as proven fact. Then it was obstruction of justice, 100% fabricated, dem media pushed it as proven fact. Now it's taxes from before he became a president which he is under no obligation to reveal, dem media says he must - wrong - else it proves he's a criminal - wrong - and he's stealing budget - wrong. But of course the same media is just gonna sweep under the rug the FBI conspiracy against Trump in 2016, that the same Mueller was part of it, the whole Hillary emails, and everything else that's inconvenient for them and "extremely dangerous for our democracy".

This is not a "saga". No requirements to release taxes. None of your public business. The "FED" is part of our business. Why not audit the Fed? Why doesn't the Fed release their financial statements? Why the secret privacy over the Fed who runs our economy? End the Fed. Trump will release his taxes after the 2020 election when there are no more political interests harping for political ammunition. Get it?

He doesn't have to release his taxes. The IRS have it, nobody else is supposed to.

Trump 2020. Look CNBC Morons, If he did not pay his taxes and got away with it like Jeff Bezos then he’s not only the best president that ever lived he’s one of the best businessman to. Anybody who knows the legal system well enough to avoid paying most of their taxes is quite frankly a genius and we all admire that. You’ve lost enough as it is American people hate. Go hug some more trees at the Bohemian Grove. Just don’t do it naked or somebody might sneak up behind you 😉

@Kevin Prima That is where you are lying, fool. If Trump was money laundering, he would be in jail by now. Since IRS and FBI have nothing on him, it is safe to assume he DOES NOT LAUNDER the money. And since IRS was biased against conservatives during Obama era, I think it is safe to say that IRS investigated him very thoroughly.

None of the government officials, except the president is elected by the American people nationwide. Also, unlike the proof of natural born citizenship and residency, tax returns by law are NOT part of the requirements for any political candidates. As result, requesting the sitting president to release his tax returns is ignorant and disturbing. In fact, it's against the people's will. Well, in an extreme case if the Congress wants it, we the American people demand all government officials, including all federal judges, all governors, mayors and all state representatives such as Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler and Eric Swalwell, must release all of their tax returns first before the president releases his. We the American people who voted for Trump, do not want Trump to be unfairly singled out.
Ame Elia (4 months ago)
he doesn't dare release his taxes and related information... those documents would show he has committed felony fraud, tax evasion, bribery and even treason (just to list a small amount of the crimes that would be revealed)… the real question is, will congress continue to protect a sitting president from the ramifications of life long continuous criminal activity...??>..

He is right. The only people that care about his tax returns are the politicians and reporters to make up a bs story!!!! He just work after the tax rules. He does nothing wrong.

We don’t care, this is just something Dems want so they can smear him, like why not his credit score, or what hair products he uses it doesn’t matter and if there was something in the returns the IRS would of done something about it already, if he didn’t follow the law he would be in jail
