Warren Buffett — ‘Under Audit, Too’– Challenges Trump To Release His Taxes

Share

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett on Monday campaigned with Hillary Clinton in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. Buffett gave a powerful rebuttal of Trump’s success as a businessman, and challenged him to release his taxes.

The Republican candidate has used his experience as a successful business man as evidence that he has what it takes to run the most powerful country on earth, but Warren, the fourth richest man in the world, isn’t buying it.

Trump has refused to release his tax returns, using the excuse that he’s being audited, and decades-long tradition by presidential candidates.

“I’m under audit, too, and I would be delighted to meet him anyplace, anytime, before the election,” Warren told the audience.

“I’ll bring my tax return, he can bring his tax return … and let people ask us questions about the items that are on there,” he continued, before arguing that Trump must be “afraid” of what voters would see in his taxes.

Buffett pledged to work towards the highest voter turnout ever in Omaha’s congressional district, and even promised to personally take at least 10 people to vote who would have had difficulty getting to the polls. He said he would do “whatever it takes,” even “selfies.”

    Trump will not show his, could it be because it will reveal his Russian financial backers?

      Why does everyone want private citizen Donald Trump to reveal a private matter between him and the IRS? It’s just like all the women claiming that he raped them including one who was 13 years old at the time of the alleged rape. Whether any of them were forced or consented to having sex with Donald Trump is a private matter between him and them. Enough with invading the man’s privacy.

        You’re kidding, right? Every presidential nominee has provided their income tax returns before the election…..what does Trump have to hide? Running for president of the United States is NOT a “private” thing….he’s going to be representing all of us, and we have a right to know if he’s a liar or not and if he has ties with Russians or not. If I were you, I’d be just as concerned!

          Every nominee has provided their BC, Passports, transcripts and aid received. But Barak was allowed to be exempt

            You need to check your facts….NO president before President Obama was EVER asked to provide a birth certificate, transcripts, or aid received! They MAY ask about a passport because a President will need to be able to travel, but I seriously doubt that was requested either! The most they’ve been asked to provide when being vetted for the presidency was their financial statements and income tax statements (how many and how far back is left up to the individual nominee).

          2. “exceeds performance” is a military impostor named Dan M Ketter from Virginia. He’s trolling you, trying to bait you with his drivel.

          Yes, I am kidding. I just read or hear the outrageous things coming from Donnie and his Trumpies and wonder what the world is like where they live. A little detachment from reality, simplistic view of everything, never being wrong, attacking those who disagree with you with disparagement and lies, impunity for rape and pedophilia, inciting violence, fooling people while laughing at them for being fooled, no moral or ethical constraints. no conscience or compassion, no intellectual honesty and so much more. You should visit it sometime. It’s kinda like a perverse Disney Land without the rides.

        And rape is hardly a private matter for just the rapist. Plus a 13-year-old can”t legally consent.

        How old are you, you have to be below sixteen in order to make that kind of statement, or maybe your IQ is below 60.

          not necessarily below 16 or low IQ. We should all be aware that Trump’s minions of hate mongers are tolling these sites starting trouble. This guy has 7 posts and they are all like this one.

            He is more than likely one of the regular trolls who got kicked off of here. So he made up another name with a new fake email. You will soon discover just who it was by what it says and who happens to be missing now.

        If it’s true he had sex with a 13 yo he’s the one who should be locked up. When your a candidate for President your life is an open book & that includes releasing his tax returns. If he has nothing to hide he should be forthcoming audit or not

            Bill Clinton didn’t “rape” Lewinsky…..she actually instigated it in many ways and never seemed to have a problem with it until he stopped it.

          It seems like you don’t think he should be president just because he is a rapist and pedophile and is hiding his financial dealings with others.

      Trump would be ecstatic and bragging about how much the billionaire class like him if they did, but they definitely know a con man when they see one.

    I KNEW there was something about Warren Buffet that I liked!! Trump can’t really argue with him since he’s also a “billionaire.” If Trump is ACTUALLY a billionaire as he says he is…he shouldn’t have any problems discussing his tax returns with a fellow billionaire! Let’s see him back out of that one, as I’m sure he will!

        No, I don’t think Warren is that crazy! I just think he’s throwing this dare out to Trump because he’s just as curious as the rest of us as to what is in Trump’s returns that he doesn’t want anyone to see.

        But “exceeds performance” is really Dan M Ketter from Williamsburg VA, a military impostor and retired Ford Motors service clerk who dodgedserving in the military during Vietnam with a college draft deferment like his messiah Donald Tramp.
        https://www.linkedin.com/in/dan-ketter-883b3785

        In his spare time, dannno likes to pose as both a former ad hoc college professor and senior military officer, telling people that he is a USAF Colonel retiring after (only 5.1 years of military service? bs!), making up stories that he flew combat missions spraying napalm over Laos fighting communism. Face it Dan, you are a draft evader and military poser who NEVER served one day in the military. Quit buying uniforms from the military surplus stores and going out in public with them.

    I believe Trump is afraid to show his returns for a number of reasons…1) He’s not worth anywhere near what he says he is…2) He hasn’t given jack-shit to any charities and 3) It would reveal that he’s in bed with Russian money.

    Trump is a coward and a liar.
    He won’t release his tax returns because they will prove far too much about his extensive self-aggrandising bullsh!t.
