Senior White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway announced on 22 January, 2017 that United States President Donald Trump wouldn’t release his tax returns.
when asked whether the White House will react to a plead, holds over 200,000 signatures to call on the president to release his tax returns, said in an interview to ABC News.
Conway also added people voted for Trump so they don’t care, while a large number of American people are paying complete attention on what their tax returns will appear as president has taken his office.
Although everyone have been watching that Mr. Trump’s family and he, respecting all the ethical rules, all what they want to carry out stepping away from his businesses and be a full-time leader for America.
On other side, the 45th President of the United States has promised to release his tax returns once an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audit was ended, while Trump said by addressing a news conference in early January that he will not release the tax returns because audit was being done then, people has no concern as they elected him.
In addition, Conway explained Mr. Trump’s accountants and lawyers have been advised him not to release yet as he is still under audit, though their position from the campaign hasn’t amended.
Nevertheless, during Trump’s election campaign, emerged the first presidential nominee of a major political party since 1972 not having released his tax returns.
If latest reports are to be believed ethics experts consider newly-elected US president has not carried out enough to distance himself from his businesses, may have face likely clashes of interest at the same time as in office.
About 60% of the participants in a Pew Research Centre Poll stated that US president should release his tax returns but only 38% of Republicans demanded that Trump should release the information.
