Monday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) said President Donald Trump was a liar for claiming he could not release his taxes because they were under an ongoing IRS audit.
Waters said, “This president is hiding something that is what we believe. We want to know more about him. What does he own? What kind of debt does he have? How much debt has he been carrying over for how many years? Many of us believe that he pays no taxes and maybe hasn’t paid any for ten or twelve years. So I don’t know who he thinks he’s fooling. Or whether or not he just totally disrespects all Americans and particularly those who voted for him by continuing to tell this lie about them being under audit and he can show them.”
“Americans are all over this country, many are struggling to pay their taxes, middle-income people, working people and many have to pay taxes that they can’t afford,” she continued. “And here we are, they are, struggling to pay their taxes and this president is basically laughing at us. Because, remember, during the campaign, he said, I pay no taxes and I believe that and many people believe that. And it’s unfortunate. He could show his taxes if he wants to show his taxes. He is hiding a lot from the American people.”
