The Clinton team is KILLING IT with their anti-Trump ads.
Clinton launched a new ad on Thursday attacking Donald Trump for not releasing his tax returns as Democrats tighten the screws on the Republican nominee. The new Clinton ad features television clips of prominent Republicans questioning Trump’s decision to keep his tax returns private.
In the ad George Will says, “Perhaps one more reason why we’re not seeing his tax returns is because he is deeply involved in dealing with Russian oligarchs.”
Mitt Romney says, “Either he’s not anywhere near as wealthy as he says he is or there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes.”
Trump has said he will not release his tax returns until the IRS has completed an audit of his returns. The audit, however, does not prevent him from releasing the records, and President Nixon released his tax returns despite being under audit.
Clinton’s latest tax returns show that she and Bill made an income of $10.6 million in 2015 and $27.9 million in 2014.
Trump’s taxes are an issue that Clinton’s aides want to see in the news. Clinton herself has been pressing the issue at rallies, saying that Trump would benefit from his own proposed tax cut. “Of course, we have no idea what tax rate he pays – because unlike everybody else who’s run for president in the last four or five decades, he refuses to release his tax returns,” Clinton said at a rally in Cleveland on Wednesday.
