Donald Trump got angry and defensive during an interview on Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos when confronted about his refusal to release tax returns, snapping at Stephanopoulos when asked about his tax rate: “It’s none of your business.”
Every presidential nominee since 1976 has released their tax returns prior to the general election.
“You’ll see it when I release but I fight very hard to pay as little taxes as possible. This country wastes our money. They take our tax money, and they throw it down the drain. I don’t have Swiss bank accounts. I don’t have offshore accounts.”
Trump also tried to turn the conversation to Hillary Clinton:
“Mrs. Clinton said that I should give my tax returns. What about all the missing emails that she’s got? When is she going to give that? Very, very great hypocrite…I sort of have to laugh when Clinton says it, Mrs. Clinton said I should give my tax returns. What about all the e-mails or missing Goldman Sachs speeches?”
Trump also commented on Obama’s directive to schools that they should allow transgender students to use the bathrooms they choose:
“Well, I believe it should be states’ rights and I think the state should make the decision. They’re more capable of making the decision.”
