Donald Trump Tells George Stephanopoulos His Taxes Are 'None Of Your Business'

On Friday, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "Good Morning America." During the questioning, Stephanopoulos seemed to have a hankering for Trump's tax returns. Trump was not about to make a change to his previous statements about not releasing his tax returns while under IRS audit and not before the November election.

Stephanopoulos asked, "Let’s talk about your tax return. Under new pressure from the Clinton campaign, Secretary Clinton talking about that the last couple of days. I just have a bottom line question for you. Yes or no, do you believe voters have a right to see your tax returns before they make a final decision?"

Trump replied, "Mrs. Clinton said I should give my tax what about all the emails or missing Goldman Sachs speeches. When is she going to give that? Very great hypocrite but as far as I’m concerned I want to give it as soon as possible, as soon as the audit every year — I have wealthy friends that never get audited." Stephanopoulos then said, "As you know the audit is no excuse." Trump responded, "when you’re under audit you finish the audit before you release. I have no problem and it should be and I hope it’s before the election."

Stephanopoulos wouldn't let it go, and said "But sir, if you were willing –" Trump responded, "By the way, people will learn nothing. I put in financials 100 pages worth of financials that show that I built a company that’s worth more than $10 billion."

After Stephanopoulos asked several more times about Trump's tax returns, Trump said "I was interviewed last night or the other night by Greta Van Susteren, who is a lawyer. She said I happen to agree with you. Until then, you shouldn’t release them."
