    This is why Trump will not release his tax returns. The Trump Organization is an octopus with financial ties in many foreign countries that create a steady stream of millions into the Trump family coffers. if Trump becomes president, these ties can present a huge conflict of interest for our national security. Does he run our country in the best interests of the people or the the best interest of The Trump Organization? Talk about pay-to-play. This is a very long article because of the tangled world wide web of financial deals the Trump Organization has that keep million of dollars flowing into him and his family. And he talks about the Clinton Foundation...what a dangerous hypocrite this man is! You can't make this stuff up. … li=BBnb7Kz

      Unfortunately, there seems to be no criteria or code of ethics for running for president.  I hope they learn from this!!!

      Unless you've ever worked for yourself in self employment  and most never have ,  you have O  clue about tax returns !   Trumps returns , compared to main-steam income earners , like all corporative returns , are going to be Extremely complicated , Entirely different  and include many, many tax  brackets  and categories.

      Lesson one for simple minds ,  complications don't clarify anything for you , THAT is the  main focus and reason for your IRS AND -- it will only be used against him politically  ,   Why don't you focus as much on the Clinton Foundations phoniness and   rip- offs of our entire system  than you will on Trumps real corporate  tax  returns ?

      The ideological map of American voters isn't  amendable -  lets focus on real truths  for once !

        CPAs would go over the returns and pursue any areas that look questionable.  What's difficult for layment is another day's work for CPAs.

      If you want tax returns to be released, then talk to your Congress member about introducing a bill and making it a law.

      "TANGLED & Corrupt" is how many are Describing many of "Delusional Donald's" Pseudo-Businesses which include the now Defunct "Trump University" and his "Trump NETWORK" Vitamin Pyramid SCAM as Defined by REPORTERs ~

      According to REPORTs, the AG of NEW York just OPENED Up another Long Over-DUE INVESTIGATION into the so called "Trump Foundation" where at least 3 DONATIONs have already been Determined to be "ILLEGAL" According to the EXPERTs ~

      Trump accuses others dishonesty while he conducts his business affairs like a common hoodlum. The custom of being candid with the AMERICAN people in regards to setting the example of adherence to the law is a splendid one. Even though there isn't law that says that he has to reveal the information, he should be punished in the court of public opinion, and it will be seen as reason to doubt him by those that are on the fence, independents.

        Credence2:  With his connections to world financial concerns, I don't think it is good to call him "The Donald" anymore.  He is more like the head of a huge mafia organization.  He should be called "The Don."

          "The Don"...I like that!   smile 

          I'm not sure what mafia "The Don" is the head of, I have no real information on that, but if you have some info. I would love it if you could point me in the right direction.  Don't get me wrong, I think anyone who owns a casino has some dirt, somewhere.  But, where?

          I do know about the "Dixie Mafia" that the Clintons and Bushs have had ties to, now that is an interesting thing to read about.  There are several books, videos, documentaries, and articles if you like dirt.

    I'l read the article but I will point out that a private citizen attempting to turn a buck is not the same as a public official using the power of their office to do likewise. We pay them to be impartial.

    ahorseback;  Prove to me and the world, the "phoniness and rip-off the Clinton Foundation." 

    The tax returns are the symptom, not the cause.  The cause is the tangled web of financial ties that the Trump Organization has with foreign actors.  Some of them are our allies, others are our enemies. For example he has financial ties with the president of Turkey.  We base our aircraft in Turkey to fight ISIS with the Kurds. 

    The president of Turkey hates the Kurds, but the Kurds are our allies and fight ISIS and the Syrian backed government.  Does Trump align himself with Turkey, so that he can keep his money flowing in to his coffers for him and his family or does he align himself with the Kurds and forget his money?  This is just one example.  If you read the article, Trump has a multitude of conflicts of interest that affect our national security like this.  This article is so detailed, this stuff can't be made up.

    AP:  I think it is just going to be a matter of time until they crack open the illegal and illicit operations of Trump and his families operations.

    colorfulone:  Conservative outfitters is a fake new organization.  You want to believe a website where they sell conservative clothing.  Give me a break.
