NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–August 13, 2016. Yesterday, Hillary Clinton released her 2015 personal tax return and Senator Tim Kaine and his wife Anne Holton released 10 years of their returns. Donald Trump did not – and voters in battleground states are going to notice.
Donald Trump continues to hide behind fake excuses as he refuses to release basic financial information that every major party nominee since 1976 has released and the American people have come to expect from anyone seeking the highest office in the country.
The contrast between Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine’s financial transparency and Donald Trump’s stonewalling is playing out on front pages and evening news broadcasts across the country and it’s leaving Americans with one question: What is Donald Trump trying to hide?
Pennsylvania Auditor General on Trump: “What Is He Hiding?”
Philadelphia Magazine // Dan McQuade
Eugene DePasquale today called on Donald Trump to release his tax returns. Trump has said he will not, as candidates have since the 1970s.
Eugene DePasquale has made a name for himself by releasing his expenses online — first when he was a state representative, and now as auditor general. Today, he called on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to release his tax returns.
“Donald Trump should not get a free pass on this,” DePasquale, a Democrat, said on a conference call organized by the Hillary Clinton campaign. “His entire candidacy hinges on his business record.”
For decades, most presidential candidates have released their tax returns. Every presidential candidate since 1980, when Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan ran, have released their taxes — though some have only released redacted returns.
Bob Graham to Donald Trump: Release your tax returns
Tampa Bay Times // Adam Smith
Hillary Clinton has released decades of Tax returns, including her 2015 returns released today. Her campaign sent a Florida-centric statement from Former Sen. and Gov. Bob Graham
“Each day that passes without Donald Trump releasing his tax returns is another day that he is failing to meet a fundamental obligation to the American public. This isn’t complicated. When you’re asking voters to trust you with the future of our country, they deserve to know how you made your money and what you did with it. Our state is home to one of the strongest government transparency laws in the nation and Floridians expect Donald Trump to follow the example set by every other major-party presidential nominee since 1976. Enough with the bogus excuses. It’s time we find out what Donald Trump is hiding.”
Mark Dayton to release tax returns, calls on Trump to do the same
Pioneer Press // Rachel Stassen-Berger
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton will release his 2015 tax returns next week.
The governor had released his annual tax returns for every year going back to 2009. But last year, he said he would not do so because he would no longer be a candidate to anything.
Dayton has decided to do so again this year he said, in answer to a question posed by the Pioneer Press.
“Given that my candidate for President is releasing her tax returns, I plan to release mine next week. As a candidate for President, Mr. Trump has no excuse for not releasing his tax returns,” Dayton said in a statement.
Hillary Clinton releases new tax return, campaign attacks Donald Trump for failing to make his public
Cleveland.com // Mary Kilpatrick
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Friday released her 2015 tax return, adding to a large stack of tax documents she’s already made public.
Clinton has shared tax returns for every year going back to 1977. And on Friday, her vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine, followed suit, and released his tax returns for the last decade.
The Clinton campaign attacked her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, for failing to make his own tax documents public. Trump said in May that he will release his tax returns once a routine audit is complete, according to CNN.
“Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine continue to set the standard for financial transparency as she releases her 2015 personal tax return and builds on the Clintons’ tradition of making their returns public since 1977 and Kaine releases 10 years of his returns,” Hillary for America communications director Jennifer Palmieri said in a news release. “In stark contrast, Donald Trump is hiding behind fake excuses and backtracking on his previous promises to release his tax returns. He has failed to provide the public with the most basic financial information disclosed by every major candidate in the last 40 years. What is he trying to hide?”
Gov. Doyle talks Trump tax returns on Capital City Sunday this weekend
WKOW // Greg Neumann
Former Governor Jim Doyle (D-Wisconsin, 2003-11) rarely voices his opinion on political matters since leaving office, but he is being very outspoken on the subject of Donald Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns.
Doyle told 27 News Friday that like with many other political traditions, Trump is trying to blow this one up even though every major party presidential nominee since Richard Nixon has submitted their returns.
Hillary Clinton, who Doyle supports, released her 2015 tax returns on Friday.
Doyle said it isn’t just about finding out how much money Trump makes, but what he does with it.
Bob Graham is calling on Donald Trump to release his tax returns
Orlando Political Observer // Frank Torres
Former Florida Governor Bob Graham is calling on Republican Presidential nominee, Donald Trump to release his taxes, after his opponent, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Senator, Tim Kaine, each released their returns for the last four decades and ten years, respectively.
“Each day that passes without Donald Trump releasing his tax returns is another day that he is failing to meet a fundamental obligation to the American public.” begins Graham “This isn’t complicated. When you’re asking voters to trust you with the future of our country, they deserve to know how you made your money and what you did with it.”
There is no mandate for Trump to release his taxes but every recent Presidential candidate has made them available some time during the general election. The delay or reluctance by some candidates is caused by the avenue of attack it can provide their opponents by exposing any loopholes or suspicious activity found in the returns.
Trump’s personal fortune which includes a resort here in Florida could make him vulnerable during a point in the campaign, where he already trails Clinton in many polls. Graham remarks after Trump has visited Florida twice in the last week, including a visit to Kissimmee on Thursday night.
DePasquale calls on Trump to release tax returns
York Dispatch // Sean Phillip Cotter
Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, a former state representative for York City, called on Donald Trump to release his tax returns.
“His entire candidacy hinges on his business record,” DePasquale, a Democrat, said of the Republican presidential candidate. “So people need to know if he walks what he talks.”
DePasquale, speaking on Friday on a conference call with reporters around the state, said it was the taxpayers’ right to know how the New York businessman makes and spends his money — and how much money he actually has.
“I believe that if you’re serving the people (and drawing a public salary), they should know how you’re spending their money,” he said.
Auditor general urges Trump to release taxes
Altoona Mirror // Russ O’Reilly
Pennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, a Democrat, held a conference call Friday to call out Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for not releasing his tax returns to the public.
“It’s unprecedented for a presidential candidate. I know I’m a Democrat, but as auditor general for Pennsylvania and as an American, it is mind-numbing,” he said.
Trump rallied in Altoona on Friday.
“I’m left to question,” DePasquale said. “What is he hiding? He is saying his business record is why he should be president. That’s wound up in tax returns he’s not releasing.”
