Mitt Romney is playing the part of GOP accountant these days.
Romney – who didn’t turn over all of his own tax returns when he ran for president–kept hounding Trump to turn over his tax returns during the GOP debate Thursday over Twitter.
Trump said during the debate that he had not turned over his tax returns because he was being audited.
“I’ve been audited every year, 12 years or something like that,” Trump said. ” I will absolutely give my return but I’m being audited now for two or three now so I can’t do it until the audit is finished obviously, and I think people would understand that.”
Romney says that is no reason to keep them to himself.
No legit reason @realDonaldTrump can’t release returns while being audited, but if scared, release earlier returns no longer under audit.
