CNN reported that Kellyane Conway, Trump’s presidential campaign manager and current White House senior adviser/counsellor, has revealed that Donald Trump, America’s new president will not release his tax returns to the American public after completing his financial audit.
About 200,000 signatures have penned an online petition that Trump should release his tax returns but on Sunday, during an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Conway revealed Trump won’t release his tax returns.
“The White House response is that he’s not going to release his tax returns,” Conway said.
“We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care,” she said.
“They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: Most Americans are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like. And you know full well that President Trump and his family are complying with all the ethical rules, everything they need to do to step away from his businesses and be a full-time president.”
“Our position from the campaign has not changed,” Conway said.
“He is under audit and has been advised accountants and lawyers not to release.”
Trump is the first major political party nominee since 1972 not to release his tax returns prior to an election.
