    The New York Times just published a LONG article that explains why Trump does not want to release his tax forms.

    I'd recommend reading the entire article, but the bottom line is that Fred Trump, and his children, are little more than a family of crooks :

    That is a good article.

    Trump has a criminal personality.

    Trump life lessons:

    "Why earn a honest living and make 1 billion dollars, when you can lie, cheat, and abuse the system to make 1.1 billion."

    "If you can steal something from someone, its their fault, you're just taking advantage of an opportunity. Besides, if you don't steal it from them, somebody else will"

    "Stealing from the government is not wrong, its taking back what belongs to you in the first place"

    The message is, as I've said so many times : "vet" any person who you hire, BEFORE you intent to hire such person. In this country they love to do things AFTERWARDS, that is so much more fun at so much more irritation and cost as well consequences. I guess they will never learn in this country.

    Trump made no mention of the NYT article last night, but the event’s start was slightly delayed until just after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement pushing back on the article and suggesting that the newspaper should apologize for its reporting.

    “Fred Trump has been gone for nearly twenty years and it’s sad to witness this misleading attack against the Trump family by the failing New York Times. Many decades ago the IRS reviewed and signed off on these transactions,” Sanders said in the statement, which did not cite any specifics of the report.

    In spite of Ms. Sanders' opinion, the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance said Tuesday evening that it is reviewing the allegations in the article and “vigorously pursuing all appropriate avenues of investigation.”

    Never had any intention to release his taxes because it's "more" information that could hurt him.

    Again that is what you get, if you don't properly, with sound laws, and an well put together "vetting" instruction manual as well polygraph tests to "vet" any person for high positions in this government. Sorry this country is in that respect still in the "stone" age. Amen.

    Hopefully Mueller is doing the "vetting" now at an high cost to the tax payer. In the meantime this huge mistake by not properly "vetting' Presidents, has cost this country millions for nothing, including an guy who spent over 400 million of your tax money on himself. What this guy is wasting is unbelievable; Airforce-one is already worn out because of all the trips for himself, let alone the security cost etc. What an dumb country!

    TJ, you know that man is made of Teflon because no matter what he says or does means nothing, I don't know why the American people and our congress is allowing him to continue in the direction he's going. I really do believe he could shoot somebody, and not one person would stand up to him. Does he care what people are saying about him? This man has more scandals than a can has worms in it.

    "TJ, you know that man is made of Teflon because no matter what he says or does means nothing,"

    That is what I described in early 2015 as why he will be a formidable candidate and could win the election. It is not unique to Trump. It is a phenomenon with no explanation that different people have. Hitler, Mussolini, Amin, JFK, Bill Clinton....

    Try to think like trump. You're underlining assumption is correct, his tax returns would show how he cheated the system so he never paid taxes. Dumbie non-profits orgs setup to laundry money and\or make himself the sole recipient of the charity; a trump charity to benefit Donald trump.

    Trump very well could leak his own tax returns, then turn around and claim that the tax returns are fake blaming the democrats for creating them.

    Trump: "Its forgery. They are fake tax returns. That's not my signature. I am so rich, a bTrillion dollars is spare change. I am richer than the US government. I am the richest man in world and richest man in history. Why would I create an elaborate money laundry scheme just to save from paying a few million in taxes. That is like a normal person cheating on their taxes to save a penny. I am not a baby. Only babies do things a like that. Those are fake taxes returns. Stop saying I am a baby!!!"

    My point is that trump frequently flips the truth so that his base thinks the truth and facts are a conspiracy against him, thus the truth can not be trusted. The only thing they should trust is what he tells them. Facts can't be trusted either. If a democrat say 1+1=2; better ask Donald trump if 1+1=2. And if says the answer is different, then he's right, and its a conspiracy against him.

    Why doesn't he release his tax documents? Because he has a lot of stuff to hide.

    I believe that's what derailed Mitt Romney's bid for the white house:

    Had Trump released his tax documents, he might not have been elected.
