Trump: If Clinton Releases Emails, I’ll Release Taxes

Monday night at the first presidential debate, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he would release his taxes if Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton “releases her 33,000 e-mails that have been deleted.”

Trump said, “I told you, I’ll release them after the audit. Look I’ve been under audit for almost 15 years. I know a lot of wealthy people that have never been audited. I  get audited every year. In a way, I should be complaining. I don’t mind it. It’s a way of life. I get audited by the IRS, other people don’t. I will say this. We have a situation in this country that has to be taken care of. I will release my tax returns, against my lawyer’s wishes, when she releases her 33,000 e-mails that have been deleted. As soon as she releases them, I will release my tax returns and that’s against my lawyers saying don’t do it.”
