Do you still want to see Donald Trump's tax returns?
Trump's refusal to release his taxes during the 2016 campaign was controversial, but the Republican-led effort to cut taxes is reigniting the debate. Shouldn't we know how tax cuts will affect the president and his family before we pass them?
Trump is not unrigging the tax code for you. He is trying to rig the tax code for Donald Trump and give himself a huge tax cut.
But the president's defenders say Trump's tax returns are a dead horse that liberals should've stopped beating ages ago. Trump is a billionaire who's paid his fair share in taxes—and even if he hasn't, who cares?
Trump promised repeatedly during the campaign that he would release his taxes. Critics say it's time to make him deliver on that promise.
As his lies and broken promises pile up, your weekly reminder that Trump promised repeatedly to release his tax return and still has not.
Again, Trump's supporters say they are far less interested in the president's tax returns than they are in tax reform. The focus should be on simplifying the tax code and cutting taxes for everyday Americans.
AMERICA FIRST !

The president's detractors say it's not just about what Trump paid—it's about who's paying him and who he owes money to. The American people have a right to know if our commander-in-chief is profiting from the office or is compromised by debt to hostile powers.
