    Actually, most of us to care less whether he makes his tax returns public or not. It appears to simply be another little irritation for you since you're still but hurt over Hillary's losing the election.

    From The New York Times 12 December 2016:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    President-elect Donald Trump refused to release his tax returns during the campaign and there is no sign that he will, ever. He broke longstanding tradition and set a terrible precedent for future presidential candidates.

    Good government groups have been wringing their hands about what to do. Now comes an excellent idea from a New York State senator, Brad Hoylman, a Democrat from Manhattan, that would could force candidates to disclose their tax returns by making it a requirement for getting on the ballot.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    article

    That's outrageous!

    Most State Constitutions: "The person, houses, papers and possessions of every person shall be secure from unreasonable searches and seizures."

    Nobody has any obligation whatsoever to produce their books and papers for examination, especially to GOVERNMENT ON THE TAKE.

    Federal requirement for being eligible to run for president trump state requirements. There is no requirement that any presidential candidate release tax or medical info

    If some butthurt state legislature passes this ridiculous law it will be struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court

    What does it mean when a person in a position of great responsibility says one thing and does another?

    That no one who seeks power should be trusted

    hmmmmmmm...And he beat both of them...What I've seen so far is Trump, day after day, spitting in the face of liberal orthodoxy and always coming out on top...no wonder so many on the left are so hell bent on insisting he do things their way, it is the surest way for them to get him out of the white house.
