Romney: Trump’s Refusal to Release Tax Returns ‘Disqualifying’

Wednesday in a Facebook post, 2012 Republican presidential nominee and vocal Donald Trump critic Mitt Romney said, “It is disqualifying for a modern day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters.”

Romney added, “There is only one logical explanation for Mr. Trump’s refusal to release his returns: there is a bombshell in them. Given Mr. Trump’s equanimity with other flaws in his history, we can only assume it’s a bombshell of unusual size.”

In an interview on Tuesday with The Associated Press, Trump said, “There’s nothing to learn from them.”

On Wednesday, Trump clarified by tweeting,  “In interview I told @AP that my taxes are under routine audit and I would release my tax returns when audit is complete, not after election!”
