The Mayor Of New York Just Did What Trump Doesn’t Have The Guts To Do

Politics, style

Today is Tax Day, when millions of American scramble to get their finances in order and send their hard-earned money to the government in the faint hope that it will be spent on something more productive than Trump’s weekly golf excursions.

It is also a day heavy with symbolism since President Donald Trump has still not released his tax returns to the public, as he promised he would.

The Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, just trolled the President in a poignant way by releasing his own tax returns with a sly jab.

Just yesterday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced that since Trump’s taxes are under audit once again – as all Presidential taxes are – he will not be releasing them to the public, even though the IRS has said multiple times that there’s nothing about an audit that prevents Trump from releasing his returns.

While we don’t know what Trump’s tax returns might contain, we can make some educated guesses as to what the President is hiding in his returns. There is significant evidence that indicates Trump hasn’t paid any income tax for decades, using the losses from his numerous failed businesses to offset what he owes.

It’s also believed that the tax returns contain evidence of financial connections to shady businesses in the Russian Federation that Trump would rather the public not see, considering that there are three different investigations into Trump and his campaign team’s potentially treasonous collusion with the Russian Federation.

Since Trump is so insistent that there’s nothing to the allegations and that he has nothing to hide, why is he fighting so hard to keep his taxes a secret?
