If you paid $10 in taxes, you paid more than Donald Trump!
Donald Trump has refused to release his tax returns, hiding behind a phony excuse that he can't until the IRS finishes auditing him -- a claim that the IRS has refuted. Even Republicans are seeing through this facade: This week, Senate Majority leaders Mitch McConnell called on Donald Trump to release his returns and 60% of Republicans voters agree. We demand that Donald Trump comply with 40 years of presidential precedence. That way the American people can get the truth about his business dealings, claims of extreme wealth, how he truly makes his
money, what tax loopholes he is using to dodge taxes, the tax rate he actually pays -- and how his tax plan would benefit him personally.
Sign our petition and join our allies, including Americans for Tax Fairness and Daily Kos, in calling on Donald Trump to release his tax returns. We'll keep the pressure up by delivering the petitions to Trump Tower in New York City.
In a blistering speech, Senator Elizabeth Warren pointed out one possible reason that Trump is dodging his responsibility:
But we know one thing: the last time his taxes were made public, Donald Trump paid nothing -- zero. Zero taxes before, and for all we know he's paying zero taxes today. And he's proud of it. Two weeks ago he said he's more than happy to dodge taxes because he doesn't want to throw his money "down the drain."
This isn't just about Trump's personal behavior: It's about what he would do as president. Donald Trump believes that the same rules that apply to everyone else, don't apply to him and other millionaires and billionaires.
And while he has taken both stances on just about every issue, Republicans continue to reluctantly rally to Trump's side because they know he'll advocate for the same failed economic policies that give tax cuts to the rich.
The American people deserve to know the truth about Donald Trump's tax returns. Sign our petition calling for him to release multiple returns -- and we'll deliver your signature to Trump Tower.
Trump has successfully conned his way to the Republican nomination. Now it's up to us to make sure he doesn't con his way to the White House.
