Trump Has it Wrong About His Tax Returns

Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump
"Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!"

This comment by trump that "The election is over!" shows how much out of touch he is with the American psyche, and politics. He must believe that the only reason anyone mentioned it during the campaign running up to the election was an effort to hurt his chances. He must believe that the only reason the people still want to know is to hurt his presidency. WRONG!

His tax returns were mentioned because the American people want to make sure we don't have a crook, or much worse a traitor, in the White House. The contents of his tax returns were relevant then, and they are relevant now. The American people wanted to know what kind of people trump was dealing with then, and they really, REALLY still want to know that vital information.

This isn't about holding some kind of grudge. This isn't about election politics. This is about integrity. This is about honesty and trust. This is about the people having faith in our president. So Mr. trump shouldn't be poo-pooing the people's desire to know.

He should give in to the people's demands and release those tax returns. If he did, that would go a long way in repairing the damage he himself has done to his own reputation. He might EARN some trust.
