    White House petition asking Trump to release tax returns reaches 100,000 signatures

    White House petition asking Trump to release tax returns reaches 100,000 signatures

    Trump must respond within 60 days

    (CNN) -- The first petition on the White House's page for citizens to petition has its first entry mere hours after President Donald Trump was sworn in — and it's a request for him "immediately" release his full tax returns.

    It took less than 24 hours for the petition to reach its goal of 100,000 signatures. Now, President Trump must issue a response to the petition.

    "Immediately release Donald Trump's full tax returns, with all information needed to verify emoluments clause compliance," the petition reads.

    The reason, the petition cites, is to make sure Trump's business dealings doesn't conflict with his government dealings.


    The White House is now required to give an official update within 60 days.


    A second petition was submitted to the White House website moments later. That petition asks Trump to "Divest or put in a blind trust all of the President's business and financial assets.


    "In keeping with tradition and to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest, corruption, and violations of the emoluments clause of the US Constitution, President Trump should divest his financial and business holdings or have them administered by a truly blind trust," it reads.


    That petition is currently just about halfway to its goal with more than 43,000 signatures. That petition has until Feb. 19 to reach its goal.

    Yeah!!! I don't care about his tax returns, there should be no tax returns, because there should be no income tax. We need the FairTax so we can be free of both income tax returns and all the other paperwork associated with this horrible type of tax system.

    He don't have to it is not a law so why bother. Besides at this point it is just kinda fun watching them beg. The main stream media are the only ones who want it anyway.

    Some Democrats may want it to try to load up their coffers for things they don't understand to whine about. My guess is, Donald Trump will never give them a tax return nor should he! He should support the FairTax and eliminate the horrible income tax. The income tax was never supposed to exist under our Original Constitution and there was a damn good reason for why not: YOU CAN'T TRUST THE GOVERNMENT WITH TAX MANDATES WITHOUT FORFEITING YOUR PRIVACY, PROPERTY AND LIBERTY. Founders knew this. Founders were very very smart people when it comes to many things like the role and power of government. THEY KNEW.

    The income tax is the work of Democrats, lock stock and barrel, so no Republican should ever support any type of tax on income, only on new goods and services.

    Good! Thank you GeorgiaPeach for hearing that and putting it on the record. Trump is way too smart to give these socialists, communists and globalists his tax returns to pick at. He has agendas and policies he wants in the news, not a bunch of untrained, uneducated reporters trying to understand 5,000 pages of an annual Trump tax return.

    HEY CORRUPT MEDIA!! Go cover the poverty in our inner cities that Trump wants to fix. Go in those neighborhoods and when you're done drive through our poor rural areas that Trump wants to help, too. Go report on something that actually MATTERS to the general welfare, security and well-being of the great citizens of this country who need Trump to help solve these problems and ensure their "blessings of liberty". Oh and if you didn't know, you STUPID CORRUPT MEDIA, the reason that phrase is in quotes is because it's from the Preamble of the United States Constitution that outlines as well as any words ever have, the entire purpose of the formation of the United States Federal Government.

    Conway: Trump will not Release Tax Returns


    Eric Bradner

    January 22, 2017

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump will not release his tax returns -- even after the audit he's frequently cited is completed -- senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said Sunday.

    In an interview on ABC's "This Week," Conway was pressed on whether the White House will respond to more than 200,000 petition signatures calling on Trump to release his tax returns.


    "The White House response is that he's not going to release his tax returns," Conway said.


    "We litigated this all through the election. People didn't care," she said. "They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: Most Americans are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like. And you know full well that President Trump and his family are complying with all the ethical rules, everything they need to do to step away from his businesses and be a full-time president."


    During his presidential campaign, Trump became the first major party nominee since 1972 not to release his tax returns -- citing ongoing IRS audits, saying he would do so once those audits were completed.


    He repeated the claim that the audit is responsible for his delay in releasing his tax returns at a news conference less than two weeks from his inauguration.


    "I'm not releasing the tax returns because, as you know, they're under audit," Trump said then.


    He also claimed that the public isn't interested in his tax returns.
    "You know, the only one that cares about my tax returns are the reporters, OK? They're the only ones," he said.


    Trump's comments are directly contradicted by most major public polls on the issue. A CNN poll from October found that 73% of registered voters surveyed think Trump should release his tax returns for public review, including about half of Republicans at 49%.

    I would never give the press or public a tax return.

    I would move the press out of the White House completely since they've proven they can't be trusted to report honestly on what they see, hear and observe there to a much larger room location across the street someplace.
