Donald Trump's Rivals Bombard Him With Demands For His Tax Returns

During last Thursday's Republican debate at the University of Houston, Donald Trump's rivals questioned why he hasn't yet released his tax returns.

Trump explained, “As far as my return, I want to file it. Except, for many years, I’ve been audited every year. 12 years or something like that. Every year, they audit me, audit me, audit me. I have friends that are very wealthy people, they never get audited. I get audited every year. I will absolutely give my return, but I’m being audited now, for two or three years, so I can’t do it until the audit is finished. Obviously.”

Before the debate, former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney suggested Trump may be hiding something. Mitt Romney claims there is "no legit reason" why Trump can't release returns while being audited. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said, “The only reason he’s not releasing them is he’s afraid that he’ll get hit."

Trump added, “You don’t learn anything about somebody’s wealth with a tax return. You learn it from statements. I filed, which shows that I’m worth over $10 billion."
